A new takeaway build-your-own-burger venue opened in 2020 in Bristol and it’s quickly becoming the talk of the town.
Phat Burger, based on Crown Road in Warmley, has developed a strong reputation for some of Bristol’s best burgers including vegetarian and vegan options despite only opening last year.
They offer a selection of fantastic deals all week long and have their own ‘build a burger’ option where you can stack your burger as high as you want with whatever you want.
One of their special weekly deal includes a £10 burger, fries and shake deal on a Monday between 5-9pm.
A selection of beef, chicken, vegetarian and vegan burgers can be selected with fries and a choice of a vanilla or chocolate milkshake all for a tenner.
The deal is only available through their app and for four hours on a Monday evening, so you’ll have to be alert to grab the deal.
However, the burgers start at £7 on their own and for the size of them, it’s a bargain even without the fries and milkshake.
We wanted to find out whether the new reputation was as good as it’s said to be amongst local residents.
Therefore, we took the plunge and tried the bargain £10 burger, fries and milkshake deal.

What was my verdict?
The burger came boxed in a cute foldable recyclable cardboard box which you could see the product bulging from the corners of the box.
Upon delicately unboxing it, I was firstly shocked at the size of the monstrosity in front of me – until I remember the name of the brand was quite literally Phat Burger and lived up to it.
I opted for a beef burger with added bbq pulled chicken. It came topped with lettuce, red onions, garlic mayo, tomato and tomato chutney and gherkins.
It was placed inside a toasted brioche bun, although it was fighting for dear life to stay within the bread.
I managed to get my mouth around the burger and was instantly blown away by the taste.
The flavours really struck me and left me craving another bite, and another one.
The BBQ pulled chicken was exquisite and the beef burger filled the whole bun and was full of flavour.
The garlic mayo was quite prominent and overpowering over the BBQ pulled chicken, but each to everyone’s taste.
Somehow I managed to devour the whole burger and was left pretty defeated.
However, the fries were beautiful. Although they were quite salty, they were perfectly cooked and despite being stuffed, I found myself eating more and more of them.
To top it off the vanilla milkshake was delicious and full of flavour. However, by the end of the shake, it became very creamy and left me thinking I had lost half my shake to the cup.
Overall, it’s quickly become one of my favourite burger venues in Bristol and with unbeatable prices like this deal, I’ll be sure to visit again.
