Proper Hamburger, that’s what the neon lights proclaim above the windows of Byron, a Manchester UK burger joint. And proper they are. We arrived here for a late dinner after a show on Saturday night, in fact it was just about closing time when we were welcomed in. The place was bright and clean and had the feel of a large American diner. We were seated in a booth and the waiter promptly took our beer orders. Dan ordered the Byron Pale Ale, while I chose the Camden Gentlemen’s Wit. We both enjoyed them and they were served ice cold.
For dinner, Dan ordered the Cheese burger (7.95 pounds) served with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo. I went with the Chilli burger (8.95 pounds). It was served with green chillis, American cheese, shredded lettuce and chipotle mayo. Very spicy, very good and quite proper to say the least. The beef is Scottish and they cook them to medium, unless otherwise specified. We ordered a side of homemade skin-on chips, that were crispy and creamy (3.25 pounds) and onion rings that were very good (3.25 pounds). We were the last people in the place and they never tried to rush us out, in fact, our waiter came over and talked with us for a while. If you need a good burger and you happen to be in Manchester, this is the place to come.
