I have been hoping Byron Leeds would open for quite some time. I’ve even been known to tweet them asking needfully when they would come to our fine city! My brother first introduced me to Byron burger restaurants in London a few years back and I have to say it opened my eyes to burger restaurants actually being decent! Byron were one of the first restaurants to do burgers well and I was hooked.
Luckily for us, Byron Leeds have opened up their doors and I went over to check the new Leeds restaurant out.
Byron Leeds Menu
Here’s the Byron Leeds menu…I like that they actually limit the number of burgers they offer, focussing on doing what they offer very well.
Drinks at Byron
For drinks, I went for the fresh lemonade and hubby went for the Old Rascal cider. He’s a big cider fan, so pleased to see this one from Thatchers on the menu.
We grabbed some olives to keep the hunger at bay whilst we waited for our burgers (I’d half starved myself all day in anticipation of the burgery-goodness to come). I was so pleased when they arrived…proper Italian olives – I much much prefer them to the greek versions. I know it’s a matter of taste, but I just love the buttery taste of Italian olives. Yum! Well done Byron.
Byron Leeds Burgers
Onto the main show – the burgers! I went for the Byron with added guacamole. He went for the classic. Mine was heaven in a burger! It was cooked beautifully and tasted divine. Perfect. He was very pleased with his too.
We got some courgette fries on the side with some aioli and chipotle mayo. Warning…..the chipotle mayo is fiery (but worth it, it’s lovely).
We ended our meal with the Byron chocolate brownie to share. My other half is a bit of a connoisseur of chocolate brownies and very very picky. Thankfully for Byron, they hit his high expectations and then some. It was a very good chocolate brownie.
All in all an excellent meal – exactly what I expected of Byron Leeds based on experiences of their restaurants in London. The manager seemed very on top of things, the servers was lovely and helpful and I’m glad they have kept up the same vibe and quality as the original restaurants. Can’t wait to go back.
