Seriously dirty burgers at Almost Famous Manchester


If you're going to ask us for recommendations for somewhere to eat in Manchester, Almost Famous is forever going to be one we'd recommend. It's one of the first places we ate when we moved to the city 4 years ago after being told time and time again that it's where you'll find the best burger in Manchester, and after trying some pretty damn amazing burgers, we've never found anywhere that tops Almost Famous. There's been close contenders like Red's True BBQ's Donut Burger or Solita's Bacon Double Cheese and yeah you can grab a tasty burger in Byron but they just don't get that winning title.

Yes, you'll find them telling people to F off on twitter, their cocktails names are usually pretty PG13 (we're looking at you B*tch Juice) and you'll find kitchen roll plonked in the middle of your table instead of napkins but they're the little things that really give this place it's real honest edgy charm. They've been making dirty burgers and seriously saucy fries since before they were cool and despite being copied by numerous other restaurants they're still going strong with two restaurants in Manchester, one in Leeds and one in Liverpool.

Now that's enough words, time to let the food porn talk for itself on this one. But one last thing, if you're going to go, make sure you order the Bacon Bacon fries, a combination of skin-on & sweet potato fries topped with Bacon Bacon Mayo and Bacon Rain, a truly magnificent marriage that had Danielle's parents won over on a recent visit, even more than the ridiculously mouthwatering River Phoenix burger's they'd ordered (cheese, bacon, shoestring onions, frazzles, red chillies, redneck bbq, bacon bacon mayo and winning ketchup).
