The Big Kahuna burger is one of the larger burgers that you can pick up at The Hub Box, Exeter.
The Big Kahuna burger that I ordered (£7.95) was two 7oz beef burgers, stacked with BBQ Pulled Pork, Onion Rings and Swiss Cheese. It was a beautifully juicy combination of burger and pulled pork that worked together wonderfully. All washed down with a bottle of Westcountry Red by the Bristol Beer Factory.
We were also given the opportunity to try a portion of Burnt End Beans as well, which despite the name, was an amazing discovery. Refried beans and the brisket ends and lumps of 12 hour marinated pulled pork, combined in a medley of BBQ bliss.
Definitely a favourite of Beer, Burger and Beyond.

How much?: £7.99
Horse is the latest Gastro-pub to get on the Burger bandwagon. Now sporting a range of gourmet burgers, this
is not the most expensive burger available but it certainly is one of the
hottest items on their menu. There is
nothing better than eating something so spicy it leaves burn marks on your
face, and if you want the ultimate test of manliness, this is definitely one
The menu describes it as ‘Not for the
faint hearted! A beef burger, Farm Assured chicken breast, melted cheese and
onion rings topped with our jalapeño inferno, pepper & onion fireball

cooked and the beef burger tasty if not a little overdone. What the onion fireball topper was, I’m not
sure as there didn’t seem to be one of those either. The peppers ended up on the side of the plate
rather than in the actual burger itself, so it didn’t really look like the
Served with chips and an average tasting salsa for dipping, it satisfied a hole
and burnt the hole too. No real Ales apart from the Greene King IPA.
The Bath House is a family pub, with orientation towards kiddies and their desire
to run around in circles. Service is
always friendly, but at busy times there can be quite a wait for food. There
was an air of panic in when we arrived as it was on Bank Holiday and the table behind us were
complaining about the time that their food took to arrive. We crossed our fingers, but were very happy
with the outcome.
If you’ve been up to London, you might have fallen upon Byron Burgers. In fact they’re starting to appear from Oxford, Northampton to York and now we are going to get one in Exeter. This will be Exeter’s fourth Burger restaurant and I’m quite happy about this, I like Burgers and all the good that they bring to hoi polloi like me. Thanks to SugarPinkFood for the heads up.
