What Burger Would a Poker Player Eat?

I LOVE a burger, and I've also been known to dabble in a game of poker from time to time, and I see a similar story in the rise of burgers with a rise in the popularity of online poker, from humble beginnings to rockstar status and absolute ubiquitousness.

With that in mind, here's a light-hearted Burger Me! guide to poker players and their burgers....


I'm a backstreet poker den kinda guy - what's my burger?

You like the dirtier, edgier side of life. You'll most likely you'll be hanging around Kentish Town or Bethnal Green, so you'll likely be hitting up places like Dirty Burger, Lucky Chip, or MEATMission. And you'd be wise to avoid Red Dog Saloon.

I'm a High Roller, what's my burger?

You've got the cash to splash and it's important people know it. You eat the best there is and drink the wine to match. You're found in Goodman, Hawksmoor or Burger & Lobster with a cracking claret to go with your burger. You'll avoid Gaucho to avoid disappointment.

I'm a competition poker player, what's my burger?

You're on the circuit, you go where the competitions go, and you eat where you need to. You'll be hitting up Byron more often than not, with their locations all over London. Avoid Frankie & Benny's, Garfunkels, TGI Friday's etc.

I'm am an office poker player - what's my burger?

As a casual gamer, you're dotted all over the capital, you'll most likely hit up one of the street food vendors in one of the many fantastic food markets. You'll be scoffing burgers from Burger Bear or Bleecker Burger.
