Handsome Burger showed up on Galway’s food scene as a market stall in Moycullen and quickly became one of Galway’s favourites for tasty burgers, loaded fries and potato salad! After a few months of hard graft and time spent returning to their roots with market stalls & beer garden appearances around the City, they’re now permanently back in town with their brand-new Westend location. Despite the bigger production, all the important things remain the same: They’re still hand-rolling every burger made with locally-sourced beef and serving all the favourites; from the B.O.B to the spicy Handsome Roost burger to the parmesan and maple bacon fries. The new space is big and bright, with plenty of room to gather up your friends and family around the table and enjoy some of the best burgers in town.
