Slinging out burgers as fast as you can say ‘beef’, Relish Real Burgers at Alban Arena down St Peter’s Street is a restaurant that values its customers. Open for lunch and dinner every day of the week except Monday, this town centre burger joint is quickly becoming one of the most popular hangout spots in town, and as winners of the title Most Family Friendly venue at the St Albans & Harpenden Food & Drink Festival 2015, it’s also the type of place you can enjoy with the little ones too. The burgers here are without a doubt the biggest draw to the restaurant, however the barbecue specialities are also worth your time – try the American-style barbecue ribs if you’re up for some seriously tender meat. But don’t just take our word for it – book your table ahead of time to experience what makes Relish Real Burgers the talk of St Albans.
Service was very good, food tasty, and good portions. And they didn’t chase us out when we were the last there and passed closing time. Very nice.
The best place to go in St Albans if it's your birthday. They do a nice little surprise birthday cake. Not many gems like this place left. Great for kids and pre cinema/night out dinner
Good food good service no complaints Was very busy but they coped very well Generous portions will recommend to friends and family Look forward to next visit
Quickly and friendly service. Took my two best friends there and happy to go back. Me and my partner go there all the time. Milkshake are fantastic there
We visited Relish Real Burgers last week for a dinner with two children. The staff were really welcoming and after finding it was our first time there they explained that there is a games corner and children are welcome to get some games from there. They did, and they brought some games to the table which made waiting for food seem really short and pleasant. The children were busy playing whilst the adults chatted and after eating we all shared a board game whilst having our coffees/milkshakes. The only reason the score is not 6/6 is that the food could have been better. The burgers were rather cold (we didn't mind that much but I know some people who would!). All considered , we will be back. The kids loved it! And we had a great evening together.
It's the run up to Christmas and there was 19 of us on one table including 9 children, so quite a handful for the guys at Relish, a pre-Panto lunch. The staff were fantastic and attended to the children as well as the adults. The food arrived quickly and uniformly for all the diners and the standard of food was absolutely fantastic. We were well attended to during the entire 2 hour lunch and I would recommended this restaurant to any foodie, the presentation was great and a bit quirky and the flavours were fabulous, get yourselves down to Relish at your next opportunity
This was a pleasant surprise, even though the reviews were good I was wondering just how good a burger bar would be. But the service was friendly and efficient, the food was absolutely delicious including the burgers and the ribs, and the puddings really enjoyable. I definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting well prepared and satisfying food. The only (very small) let-down were the scruffy menus which needed renewing! Well done to all the excellent staff at Relish Real Burgers St Albans!
Great food and service. We ordered the halloumi stack, classic burger and chicken stack between 2 of us. Plus sides of apple and beetroot slaw (definitely recommend) and fries. Food was delicious, although there was too much really but we wanted to try everything. Total bill came to less than £35 including one regular and one alcoholic shake. Great place to take children - very family friendly, with board games and puzzles for you to play at your table. We will definitely be going back!
The best burgers in St Albans and perfect location for an evening at the Alban Arena. It's a shame the Quandoo Review system insists on a minimum of 25 words as I only wanted to say "The best burgers in St Albans and perfect location for an evening at the Alban Arena" but you (for some unknown reason) have forced me to extend it. Next time, I simply won't respond.
Food was lovely. Initial service was a little slow (it was busy as it was pre-show). Drinks took ages to come (which took 1 point off my score) but food came in good time and was really nice. I like the atmosphere in here - i have come several times with kids for early tea and it is very welcoming of them and good value quality food.
