American | Marylebone

They're widely seen as being behind the very best burgers in London and until now have been a pop-up, roaming outlet. This is be their first permanent restaurant and puts them well on the way to being the Shake Shack of London. With booze.

"In sum, I’d strenuously recommend Meatliquor or any of its siblings to anybody who likes pieces of cow rudely interspersed between pieces of bread, and who isn’t on a diet of any kind." READ REVIEW

"The meat is good, the texture appropriately loose, the surface nicely charred and the interior pink, telling you that the seasoning hasn’t been chucked into the mix. The bun has the right soft texture and the jumbo onion rings are crisp." READ REVIEW

"There probably isn't a better burger to be had in London for £6.50. However – and this is a huge however – there are burgers just as good to be had for a couple of quid more... So you've got to factor in how much you value your time." READ REVIEW

"It’s the very opposite of what fashionable restaurants have striven to do in the past, which is to make it feel from the outset like everyone who is anyone is there. Meat Liquor, rammed though it is, feels like there’s nobody there at all." READ REVIEW

"To compare (the Dead Hippie burger) to a Big Mac would be heresy. Sloppy, greasy, pungent, sharp as sarcasm, sweet as kisses, it left Ed gobsmacked. The chilli cheeseburger was another perfect synthesis." READ REVIEW

"We tried two varieties of burger and found them faultless - sloppy, meaty, tangy, cheesy, spicy, perfect. It takes something like this to remind you how amazing the world's most bastardised dish can be when it's done with dedication." READ REVIEW
