Dinner At Annie's Burger Shack, Nottingham

The Man Bird and I were playing taxi service for our Chick and one of her friends (they were going to see Nicki Minaj at the Capital FM Arena), so we decided to make our own fun and have a meal and drinkies to while away the hours. Having been to Rub earlier in the year we fancied somewhere different, and found ourselves at The Original Annie’s Burger Shack. The premises themselves are a great fusion of modern industrial and homely charm with exposed brickwork and modern lighting sitting comfortably alongside bunches of Dried Hops. Pale Sage Green paintwork creates a further relaxed feel to the premises, and padded seating around the periphery meant we were going to have a really comfortable dining experience.


All the staff were incredibly friendly, especially our server, Joe who spent time talking us through all the different burgers (particularly the competition runner-up burger that I eventually settled on). For starters we shared a portion of Nachos that were smothered in melted cheese and had a generous dollop of soured cream on top, as well as fresh tomato and cucumber chunks.



The Boy Wonder had the “Lemmy“ Burger for his main – an inspired creation of American Style Cheddar Cheese, tons of Grilled Jalapeno Peppers and their own Jack Daniels Mustard Sauce. They weren’t joking about tons of Jalapenos!! Oddly though, because the Peppers had been grilled they were softened and sweeter than you would expect, but they were still punchy enough if you ate them alone. For my Burger I had one of the competition runners –up, “The Steeplejack“ created by Catherine Day. This cheeky number was the same meaty-beast of a burger as The Man Birds, but was topped with Crispy Bacon, Grilled Black Pudding, Caramelised Apple Slices and Chilli Jam. When it came it was more of a Mountain than a Burger, and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in :) We both ordered Sweet Potato Fries (£1 extra), although all burgers come with a standard choice of Skinny Fries, Curly Fries or Homemade Potato Wedges. We also had some Onion Rings as an extra side.


The burgers are disconcertingly pink inside, but this is because of the Paprika they contain so no need for alarm dear reader - each Burger is temperature probed after cooking to ensure that they are good to go before they leave the kitchen.



These fellas aren’t for the faint-hearted; they are chocka full of taste and the toppings are really generous. I reckon it took us a good 30 minutes to munch through the burgers, Fries and Onion Rings, and we did have to have a little “breathing time“ too. We really were chirruping in delight, they were absolutely delicious and everything was piping hot, just as it should be.


Normally we would just plough straight on and order dessert, but we had a quarter of an hour before we considered whether we actually could manage anything else to eat. In the end our beady little eyes got the better of us and we ordered a slice of Boston Chocolate Mud Pie and a portion of the American Style Brownie with Vanilla Cream Cheese frosting, both with Ice Cream. Both desserts were amazing taste-wise and we gave it our best shots, but had to concede defeat and leave a few mouthfuls untouched -  and as you know, that doesn’t happen very often !. To round things off we had 2 coffees each.



There was a steady stream of diners arriving and leaving all evening ranging from families with children of all ages, couples and small and large groups too. At no point did the venue feel rushed or over-crowded and the staff remained attentive to their customers at all times.


For the two of us  the 3 courses , 4 coffees and alcoholic and soft drinks came to just under £55 which we feel was really good value for money given the quality and quantity of the food, and being a city centre location.


I would definitely go here again, and if you find yourselves in Nottingham it would be well worth you paying Annie’s a visit, whether in the evening or as a lunchtime break from Retail Therapy. Good work team Annie’s, “Hot Wings“ most certainly deserved here :)
