Note: The opinions/views expressed in BURGER LAD® reviews are from one of the team above (except for our rare guest review posts).

They are not endorsed in any way, shape, or form (unless 5-figure sums are involved).

We will always publish the menu price of the burger but if we have received it gratis then this will be mentioned.
