But Haché has been levitating the humble patty to new heights for a decade.
Their Shoreditch branch brings a gourmet selection to the east London crowd, who, judging by how busy the place was on our Saturday night visit, are lapping it up.
Despite having a 10 deep selection – ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous – there‘s more to the place than burgers.
Our wings were textbook – succulent chicken falling off the bones in a marinade just the right side of sweltering.
Meanwhile, for the herbivores, the halloumi slices were firm and awash with salty flavour.
The Sicilian burger was majestic – tender, medium rare meat topped indulgently with melted mozzarella and Parma ham; heart-stoppingly good.
Meanwhile the Canadian variety, with sweet cure bacon and Cheddar was tasty, if not transcendent.
The puddings also step up to the plate.
The Oreo milkshake in particular was a sweet, gooey treat that went down in a flash.
With some strong Czech lagers on tap and the bustling Shoreditch bar and club scene just outside the door, Haché has everything you need to kick off a great Saturday night.
