About Burger Theory

We believe in the perfect burger! Burger theory is a quality burger company with a passion for really good food...

Burger Theory was founded by friends Rory Perriment and Oliver Thorogood, two very creative and enthusiastic burger chefs! In 2012 we started experimenting with different recipes and discovered there are hundreds of ways you can make a burger.

We decided that we would be ‘The Creative Burger People’ with no limits to what can and cannot go in to a burger. With the menu set we started taking our delicious culinary creations to festivals and food fairs around the country. We can now be found at weddings, street food events, music festivals, running pop-up kitchens and at our Bristol Restaurant.

Loved the bottomless burger event. Great food & as always great service. Would like to see maybe a ‘naked’ version of the sliders as I can’t do a lot of bread (even though they are fabulous) .. Prosecco & steam cider were absolutely lush ..will be back! Thanks for a great afternoon x

This was our second time visiting Bristol for the bottomless burger club and yet again it didn’t disappoint. The value for money is amazing, the service was incredible and the food was to die for. We’ll be returning !!

The burgers were of a decent size and very flavourful. Shame we went there on a bank holiday, some of the items on the menu were crossed out due to lack of ingredients. But we'll definitely come back again.

Seated right next to the only other people in the place - why not spread us out a bit? So you can save ten extra steps walking between tables? Felt a bit herded tbh, may as well have been sat at a shared table. Slow service generally, even though like I said, only two groups in the place (maybe three more outside?) When I ask a server to come back in "literally one minute", please don't come back fifteen minutes later! I could see both the wait staff behind the bar, it's not like they were both busy. Asked how spicy a sauce was, server didn't know. Grand. The food was actually great, but I really don't understand how service can be that slow with so few tables to look after. I think if I didn't ask for the bill I'd still be there now.

Had a really great time - we did the bottomless burger brunch, and I would recommend this to anyone. The food and drink is great, and our server was brilliant, never felt like we waited too long to be able to order our next slider or drink. Not cheap, but we more than felt like we got our money's worth, and felt full for the rest of the day!

The upstairs was far too warm. In need of some form of ventilation as it was difficult to enjoy our meal in the heat. Halloumi fries were over cooked and not very nice. However, the burger was great. Asked for sauces but no one returned with them. Overall, it was a good meal but a few minor issues need to be rectified.

I have previously attended Burger Theory with some friends and our experience was outstanding, the waitress came straight to the table and offered assistance in choosing from the menu, they even gave us the option of having our burgers cooked not quite as rare as usual, which was well received. Unfortunately this was not the case on our recent visit and everything seemed 'rushed'. When ordering our mains my husband ordered the Karaage fries and even made a point of pointing them out on the menu to make sure the waiter got them right as he wasn't sure on the pronunciation. When the food arrived we received Korean Bites, fortunately this was fairly quickly rectified, however we did eat 2/3 if our meal without fries. Then we were asked if we needed anymore drinks so another friend at the table ordered 2 Pina Coladas, we had to wait some time for these and when they arrived they were Blood Orange cocktails, not what we originally asked for. So we had to wait for at least another 10-15 minutes for our correct cocktails to be made. Following the errors, some brief apologies were made but they didn't seem sincere, and all in all everything seemed quite rushed which was a shame. After such an incredible experience on our first visit we wanted to come along with some friends whilst we were in the city for a gig (traveled from Cornwall), however we couldn't help but feel disappointed in the service. The quality of the food was just as good as we remember and did not disappoint however the service was not as you would hope on a fairly quiet Thursday evening.

The place was busy which is understandable given then bottomless deal. However, already knowing that it would be busy, surely more staff should have been rota’d in. The service was fine but it was delayed most of the time and some orders were wrong. We could tell that the staff were trying their best though.
