Glasgow’s top burger restaurants battled it out in front of this year’s judges that included the James vs. Burger team, Jennie Cook, Robert Florence, 5PM.co.uk and STV Glasgow in a fiercly contested competition, which saw many creative dishes tested by the panel.

JANUARY 2014 – BURGER MEATS BUN VOTED 2013’s ‘BEST BURGER IN GLASGOW’ BY JAMESVSBURGER.COM READERS!
Glasgow has been voting since the beginning of January and YOU have told us that the best burger in the city belongs to….BURGER MEATS BUN!
Much like last year, this was a close race; with the defending champions, Nice N Sleazy’s MeatHammer Ltd coming in a close second place. With only 72 votes between first and second place, you told us that West Regent Street’s Burger Meats Bun was your favourite in Glasgow in 2013.
Burger Meats Bun has been on a roll (heh) since opening its doors on July 5th 2013 and the competition from other Glasgow-based burger establishments has been extremely tough. You can check out our reviews of Burger Meats Bun HERE and HERE.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the guys at Burger Meats Bun. We’ll be along later in the month to present them with the 2013 BEST BURGER IN GLASGOW award.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to the amazing, hard-working chefs that have served so many burgers to us and the rest of Glasgow’s burger fanatics. Now, our burger quest continues and we look forward to even more reviews in 2014 and crowning another winner next year.
Thank you to every single person who voted and for your continued support!

JANUARY 2013 – MEATHAMMER LTD at NICE N SLEAZY VOTED 2012’s ‘BEST BURGER IN GLASGOW’ BY JAMESVSBURGER.COM READERS!
Glasgow has been voting all month long and hungry diners have told us that the best burger in the city belongs to MeatHammer LTD at Nice N Sleazy!
It was a close, hard-fought race, with Nice N Sleazy taking the win with just under a ten percent lead in the votes. Chinaski’s, the Butchershop Bar & Grill, Ad Lib, Lebowski’s and Inn Deep also received a large number of votes from our readers, but in the end it was the creative offerings of Chef Andrew Yates at Sleazy’s that edged the victory. In particular, it was the Lucretia burger, topped with chorizo, pulled pork, tomato, pineapple, chilli jam and buffalo hot sauce that was mentioned by most of the readers who voted for them to receive the award.
We stopped by Nice N Sleazy to present Chef Andrew Yates of MeatHammer LTD with his award…
Now, our burger search continues. We’ll be eating our way through more of Glasgow’s burgers this year and re-visiting many that we’ve reviewed throughout 2012! Later this year, we’ll give you the chance to vote again, this time for Glasgow’s best burger of 2013, so keep it right here at jamesvsburger.com!
We would like to take this oppertunity to congratulate MeatHammer Ltd and Nice N Sleazy on winning the award and the hearts of Glasgow’s hungry burger fanatics! We would also like to say a huge thank you to all of the hard-working chefs who have served burgers to ourselves and the rest of Glasgow this year – it is because of you that Glasgow is becoming one of the United Kingdom’s leading burger hotspots! We can’t wait to see what you have in-store for 2013!
