Four Ounces Burger Co Verdict: 9.3/10
Beef Burger: 9.4/10
Chicken Burger: 9.5/10
So why 4 Ounces Burger Co?
He says: This place came recommended from disparate sources. One look at the photos and the menu online had me primed for some 4 ounces goodness.
She says: We have been fairly lax on the burgers recently – getting into shape (vomit), moving house and literally not doing anything on the weekends where we can’t bring the dog means that it has been a while between burgs. But He has remained vigilant, dedicated to the cause, and when this place opened it went straight onto his list.

Tell us about the G Funk Burger?
He says: One bite of this had me saying “Fuck that’s delicious!” in my best Action Bronson voice. The patty was sheer perfection and prepared as such. Big shout out to the most maple, maple bacon I’ve ever had. Tasted like it had been swimming in maple syrup for days and the sweetness really worked on this bad boy.
She says: A very, very good burger – this one goes straight to my hall of fame. The patty stood out as one of the greats, you can tell its been ground specifically and that a bit of care has gone into it. It had a really good texture and didn’t fall apart to easily. Cooked medium rare. I was dubious about the cheese, because it didn’t look as melted as I usually like but surprise, it was melty, it just didn’t look like it was. Other things that made it great – good fresh crunchy salad, the most mapley maple bacon I have ever had and a good amount of burger sauce. Top notch!
So then, how did you find the Birdman Burger?
She says: This burger was the stand out for me. What made it so great was the fried chicken. I think this is my favorite fried chicken burger this year. The batter was perfectly cooked, crunchy and yet a thin layer that stuck with the chicken and didn’t slide off after a few bites. The actual chicken was perfectly cooked, not dry at all and cut for the right size. Again the cheese looked like it wouldn’t be melted enough but was perfect. I really liked this one. It will come back to me on Saturdays when I wake up at noon.
He says: Although not as much of a fan of this one as the delightful She was this was still an undeniable winner of a chicken burger. The fried chicken itself was perfect with a flavoursome crunchy exterior housing a gloriously juicy chicken breast inner. I’m just not that massive on pickles and tomato on a chicken burger. Each to their own though.
Now, what about the sides?
She says: These fries were too much for me – and that is saying a lot. The combination of pickles, chilli, cheese sauce and burger sauce was overwhelming. I was also just obsessed with the burgs so this really took a backseat.
He says: These fries were most definitely not too much for me. I reveled in the decadence! Delicious!
