7 Of The Best Burgers To Try In Sheffield

Sheffield has an abundance of restaurants with each offering different cuisine from all over the world, but sometimes nothing can beat a nice juicy burger. 

Even the best chefs in the world like to take a break from cooking now and then, so it only makes sense that a student would prefer at times to order something, rather than make themselves dinner in their cosy kitchen at their student accommodation.

No matter if you’re in the mood for a nice smoky beef burger, a stacked chicken burger or a crunchy veggie burger, we’re certain you’re going to find the burger joint of dreams in this city…
