York’s one of the most beautiful cities in England and is known for cobbled streets and old-style architecture that takes you back in time. Taking in this wonderful city can be tiring and you can work up quite an appetite. If you’re after a good beer or the best burgers in York, you’re in luck, as The Yorkshireman has done the legwork for you and found some of the tastiest burgers in town.

Stepping off the train you are greeted by ancient walls that surround the city. Inside these old-fashioned walls are some delicious burger joints waiting to be explored. The historic city is catching up with others with its burger offerings – we have a feeling you won’t be disappointed on your next visit.

1. Clucking Oinks

If you only have one burger from Clucking Oinks in SPARK:YORK, we recommend the Rodeo fried chicken burger. It comes with buttermilk chicken topped with smoked bacon, crispy onions, BBQ sauce and American cheese sauce – and it’s to die for. If it’s not messy to eat, we don’t class it as a burger and these big bad boys will have you reaching for the tissues.

Along with their brilliant fried chicken burgers, the team also serve incredible loaded fries and fried chicken strips with a range of dips to accompany your juicy burger. 17-21 Piccadilly, York YO1 9PB
