STOCK BURGER CO.
THE STOCK BURGER CO.
So is Stock Burger Co. Brightons best burger? Agents Hasburglar and Agent Big ‘Mac’ Dave are on the case.
I remember going to the launch night of Stock Burger Co. a few years back. It was a fun night, the highlight being when they rolled out their ‘Hub Cap Burger’. A beast of a burger that wouldn’t have looked out of place on Man V Food. Alas the Hub Cap is no more, which is a shame as watching someone tackle that was pretty much the only thing that would have lured me back.

What you see is what you get – Holiday Inn in a Bun.
Stock Burger has been on our radar for a while. You can’t ignore it, on the Kingsway, the biggest burger billboard in town.
FOR THE MASSES
I knew what I was getting before it arrived, you can’t expect ‘extraordinary’ when it must cater for the mid-stream-masses that frequent the Holiday Inn(where Stock Burger is housed)… however, what was extreme was the range of extras, sides and the complete customisation they offer(+ a great drinks menu)… hat’s off to you Stock Burger, you’ve done this well!!
Special Agent Ben Hasburgular has just signed with DuPont to test the stretching capabilities of lycra… so he set about ordering a milkshake & most of the sides to accompany his burger…
I ordered the ‘Burger Builder’ double, with blue cheese, slaw & baconnaise.
Service was great, though the drinks were a bit slow… we were in no rush, it was a perfect day for people watching, as the new arrivals walked in & the excited weekenders walked out… no doubt the majority will be convening in Stock Burger at the end of the night… many having pulled some other eager individual filled with weekender love-vibes, hoping to sneak them into the hotel through the restaurant, away from the watchful eye of the reception.
The food came & credit again, this was very well presented.
DuPont made 1 basic mistake when selecting Special Agent Ben Hasburgular to test their new lycra, they underestimated his ability to be stuffed on 1 milkshake… I had the pleasure of listening to him moan about being full while he pushed food into his mouth for the remainder of the meal.
Burger was well cooked, the bun was basic, the extras were ok… I was worried about it being a wet-mix that I’d ordered with the slaw & baconnise, it all held together pretty well…. Fries were ok & mac/cheese was ok. Nothing too memorable, but it was nice.
Where Stock Burger did excel was the cauliflower bites… bitten by the repulsive cauliflower bites in Wolfsmouth a few months back (Wolfsmouth have assured us that this was a mistake on their part), the cauliflower bites at Stock Burger were excellent, crispy & well-seasoned.. very tasty!!
What you see is what you get here… for a basic burger with an excellent drinks range, I’d seriously consider going back. Do it simple & do it well… no fireworks, but the 2 key boxes ticked.
