The Best Places For Burgers In Galway

Forget all that fancy nonsense for a minute and just put a massive burger in front of me. Thankfully, the burger scene has absolutely exploded in recent times throughout the city and we are now blessed with a variety of options, each with their own unique take on the classic comfort food. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best places to get a burger in Galway. At the minute, they’re in no particular order but each of them is worth trying.

Handsome Burger

It would be ridiculous of anyone to put together a list of where to get a good burger in Galway and ignore a restaurant known solely for their good food. Handsome Burger, on Dominick Street, have been getting rave reviews since they opened up their new establishment in Galway’s Westend. Be warned, taking one look at their social media channels is only going to result in saliva flowing from your mouth in anticipation of those juicy creations.56968306_2387279821305910_4477235936991641600_n

The BurgerStory

Brought to you by the team at Martine’s of Quay Street, The BurgerStory define themselves as US-style burgers. Their menu makes extensive use of high-end Irish & locally produced ingredients, including McCarthy’s of Kanturk black pudding in the signature “Damnation Burger”. With the Summer months upcoming, their outdoor seating by the Spanish Arch is a bit of a game changer.57247067_792216567806986_7277425511561691136_n

BóTOWN

We’ve been huge supporters of BóTOWN since they opened, not only is their food delicious but the whole story behind their business is worth hearing. If you get a chance to meet either of the owners when you’re in, make sure to ask them a bit about it – it’s fascinating. 49592367_360592108088265_6275984363863670784_n

The youngest addition to our list in terms of the length it’s been open, BóTOWN is actually a neighbour of Handsome Burger, adding to the already overflowing culinary scene in Dominick Street.

The Chili Shack

We’re creatures of habit. If we find a place we enjoy, we’ll always make sure to go back for more, often at the expense of trying somewhere new. The Chili Shack is the original innovator in Galway when it comes to the Burger scene. With it’s easy going, relaxed vibe, The Chili Shack’s Burger menu is smaller than the other options on this list but what they do, they do well.

Wholly Cow Burgers

Want to avoid the city centre? Wholly Cow Burgers offer more than just an excuse not to head into town with their no-fuss burgers. They use the simple rule of using high-quality ingredients including succulent meats that are bursting with flavour.27752365_144169929598237_8430097816116889299_n

As an added bonus, they are very environmentally friendly with 100% compostable packaging and by keeping all of their food waste to a minimum.

Of course, there are many other places we love to grab a burger including Scotty’s & Caribou to name but a few, but we can’t go through them all! If you have any other suggestions let us know and if you like this, you might want to read our blog on the ‘Top 5 Pizza Places in Galway’
