Marylebone has its fair share of Burger joints what with Tommi’s, Patty and Bun and Meat Liquor all within a few streets. But this hasn’t stopped The Jointfrom throwing its hat into the ring. However, they are taking a slightly different route and offering a variation on the theme with BBQ pulled beef, pork and chicken fillings inside homemade crunchy topped buns the size of your face.And ribs. Of course they do ribs!
Sides come in the form of chicken wings, onion rings and short sticky ribs all wrapped up in paper with helpful identifying labels oh and there’s a duck.
Each table comes equipped with its own Joint mug filled with all the napkins (you'll need 'em) and a leftovers bin inlaid into the table although it took us most of the meal to figure out what it was, perhaps we were distracted by the onion rings ..
With another spot in Brixton, it looks like The Joint is on its way across London and I’m in full support. It’s nice to judge a burger by different standards and refreshing to see something different amongst the insane explosion of the patty.
The buns were of a staggering size but all made on site and the meat was flavoursome and juicy. Even a man sized stomach might struggle when confronted with the burger. Sides are for enjoyment as opposed to necessity, they tipped me right over the edge to the point of meat induced sofa coma so I’d advise avoiding ‘out on the town’ plans after your meal unless you can be very restrained when ordering .. why do I never learn?!
Cocktails are priced at £6.50 and are pleasant and pretty with a fresh fruity approach to counterbalance the meat feast of the rest of the meal. Also they are served in handled jars. Don't you just love a good ol' handled jar!
Looking outside into the cold, I was glad to have an extra meaty layer to keep me warm on the journey home!
