Leeds food scene is getting shaken up with the introduction of popular Newcastle American cheeseburger and breakfast place Meat:Stack in Leeds city centre. The independent burger joint serves up ‘real American’ cheeseburgers focusing on quality, flavour and simplicity – and of course, oozing cheesy goodness
The burger joint has gone from strength the strength since opening back in 2016 as a pop-up stall. It opened its first restaurant in Newcastle in July 2020 and is looking to expand into the Leeds food scene where it is expecting to open on Boar Lane in the city centre earl 2022.
They use rare and traditional bespoke cuts of beef in their patties which are smashed into a raging hot grill, covered in cheese, stack in double or triples, then steam to melt everything together. Its sauces and seasonings are freshly made in house and are designed to complement the beefy flavours perfectly
Their burgers are named after places in the USA and include a range of fries such as ‘parmesan truffle’ fries. They also serve a range of breakfast foods with hash browns and all the other good stuff!
Our sauces and seasonings are freshly made in house and are designed to complement the beefy flavours we create. We have a fantastic team and we pride ourselves in looking after them so they can relax and give you the most enjoyable experience. Our food is all made to order and served fast food style. We don’t take bookings, so you’ll always be able to turn up and grab a seat when one becomes available.
Tom Westman, partner and director of Meat:Stack said: “We love Leeds. It is one of the finest cities in the world and we felt it was the ideal place to open our second restaurant.
“We wanted to be central and close to the station, so when we heard about the availability of the unit at 34 Boar Lane, it fitted the bill perfectly, not just with its location, but also with its modern, friendly, inclusive and community-orientated ethos.
“We know Leeds is big on community – and that’s crucial for us. We will be using local suppliers for the majority of our food and we want to build strong and long-standing relationships with these suppliers and, of course, with our customers.
“If all goes well, we are hoping to open a second branch in the city.”

Eamon Fox, partner and head of department at Knight Frank in Leeds, added: “We are choosing our occupiers very carefully, as the spirit and ethos of 34 Boar Lane is crucial.
“Meat:Stack have already established a fantastic reputation in Newcastle and we are thrilled they are now coming to Leeds. Their independent and local approach is absolutely brilliant and fits this special building’s aspirational culture perfectly.”
