If you’re in the mood for a burger that’s a little fancier than the ones you get from the famous fast food or take away joints, then this compilation is for you. We’ve pulled together a handy list of the best burgers in Manchester City Centre for you to try. Let’s jump in!

Almost Famous

Almost Famous have restaurants across the North West of England and are renowned for their burgers that are delightfully over-the-top. Situated in the Northern Quarter and in Great Northern Warehouse, Almost Famous feature the very best American and bar cuisine, with a selection of crazy fries option to compliment your high-stacked burger. Why not try their Bacon Bacon fries with bacon rain and Baconaise alongside your Triple Nom burger (double cheeseburger, pulled pork, slaw, redneck BBQ sauce)? It has a relaxed atmosphere too, so you can enjoy your decadent eats in peace!

Grand Daddy’s Diner

If you’re looking for a place that serves unconventional burgers, then Grand Daddy’s Diner is one for you. Not only does it serve American style beef and chicken burgers, it’s vegetarian and halal friendly, allowing everybody to taste their delicious food. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy, as well as being child friendly. They are known as being one of the best burger places in Manchester, and their new Louisiana Chilli burger (6oz Beef patty, fried chicken, pickled red cabbage and gherkin, onion ring, GD sauce, lettuce, tomato and red onion) is one to try.

Honest Burgers

Knowing where your meat comes from is important to some – and if it’s important to you, Honest Burgers have got you covered. Their British beef patties are made in their own butchery and their homemade rosemary chips cut and cooked daily. Additionally, each restaurant works with neighbouring breweries to serve great local beers. They also have a whopping 30% student discount, between 2pm and 5.30pm Mon through Fri, so students can stretch their loans out even longer!

Nestled in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Solita offer burgers made with hand-pressed wagyu chuck steak, each served with a side of fries. Those wanting to dip their toes into Solita’s extensive menu might want to try the standard Solita Burger  which boasts 2x 4 ounce patties, Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, ketchup – however those feeling a bit more adventurous might want to push the boat out and sample The Big Manc which doubles things up to offer a delicious burger with 4x 4 ounce patties. The choice is yours!

We couldn’t do a post on the best burgers in Manchester City Centre and NOT include Archie’s, could we? This quickly growing, fan-favourite chain has multiple venues across the city and boasts a cheap, cheerful – and happily delicious – fast food option for all those who want a decent burger on the go. The Chicken Cheetos burger offers visitors a chicken fillet drenched in cheesy hot sauce and adorned with Cheetos crisps – while their range of beef burgers range from simple (Superstar) to fancy (The BLK, complete with black bun). They even offer a small meat-free range for vegetarians. All this and we haven’t even mentioned the milkshakes yet! Definitely worth a visit.
