Best Of Ireland discovers why Galway-based Handsome Burger is one of the tastiest prospects in the West of Ireland.



you’ve been out west, you’ll know Handsome Burger is one of the best burger joints in the business. With succulent meats, local ingredient­s, and a real commitment to customer experience, this eatery has gained an enviable reputation in recent years, as well as having a special place in the heart of Galwegians.

The story of Handsome Burger is an interestin­g one too. It was founded by life-long foodies and best friends Rory McCormack and Cathal O’Conner. Bonding over their desire to promote high quality local Irish produce, the lads went from selling their food at a simple market stall several years ago, to opening one of Galway’s most popular food hangouts.

Handsome Burger prides itself on preparing every element of their menu in-house from scratch daily. They are committed to using the best ingredient­s possible – such as beef from Brady’s Master butcher in Athenry and Sheridans’ Cheese Monger.

The lads learned their trade by travelling the length and breadth of Ireland and exploring one farmer’s market at a time.

“Since day one, we’ve focused on providing a special and memorable experience for our customers,” they tell us, “because this is what matters most to us at Handsome

Burger. Customer service has always been core to why we love what we do – delivering only the best burgers to our loyal customers.”

Handsome Burger offer exciting and mouth-watering dishes that include succulent beef and organic chicken pattys; crispy sea salt and rosemary infused fries; chorizo & roast veg loadie fries; and their special veggie badji delight. Our personal recommenda­tion is the Petey Pablo burger – an exquisitel­y spicy burger, which has a Brady’s beef patty, Cecina chorizo, Irish cheddar, guacamole, roquito salsa and ery paprika mayo.

As it stands, Handsome Burger boasts a restaurant in the city centre, they also have several mobile units, allowing them to travel up and down Ireland, catering for events of various sizes. With over 30 Irish weddings catered for in their (still young) career, you can rest assured that if you’re putting on an event – you’re in safe hands!
