We had passed by today at Big Smoke Burger which is located at the newly opened Boxpark at the Al Wasl Road. Last time we had passed by it was not open yet, but this time it was. Parking was easy just close by and so we walked in to see what is behind the Big Smoke.
We went for a Classic Burger with everything, a Double Cheeseburger with all out of pickles, large fries, a Vanilla Shake a of course non alcoholic Root Beer and a Boylan’s Orange Soda. We wanted to try out the Onion Rings as well but they had sadly been out of stock…
What I liked is that you do not get a pager here which beeps to tell you that you can pick up your order on the counter. Here you are getting a number sign that you put on your table and once your order is ready it will be delivered to you. We had been sitting outside and on later afternoon this is really a very nice place to chill and enjoy. Our drinks came soon and the Vanilla Milkshake I had ordered was very tasty. I had before never heard about Boylan’s Soda but must say that the Orange Soda was surprisingly really good.
The food came a bit later and the presentation on the metal tray is really cool. The burgers both looked already amazing , after the first bite it was confirmed that the taste stands nothing behind the look. My Burger was having a very juicy patty with a nice firm bun. For me the perfect combination. The fries came served in stainless steel drum and as well had been among the best fried I have ever had. They had partially still the skin on them which made them even more tastier.
Overall this is a pretty cool new Burger Joint which I do highly recommend and certainly will visit again. Next time I have to check out the Big Smoke Burger…. Value for money wise Big Smoke Burger is in the same range as a Shake Shack or Gourmet Burger Kitchen and is certainly worth the 170AED we spend in total.
