The newest project from Leeds favourites the Falafel Guys. Bringing the most exciting smashed burgers and loaded fries in the city!

Selection of burgers from Big Buns Leeds

The latest foodie project from the lads that introduced the people of Leeds to the best falafel going, and they know what their doing when it comes to high quality independent food. The secret weapon at Big Buns is the smash burger technique – mashed onto a flat-top griddle and simmered in the flavoursome juices until crisp on the outside.

There are allergy friendly, halal, and vegan friendly food options available.

The Food

Big Buns is a fitting name for one of the latest burger joints in Leeds. These guys are putting together singles to quadruple patty burgers, with shredded iceberg lettuce, special sauce, cheese, onions, pickles and other such wonderful things. And if you want a vegetarian or vegan option without sacrificing any of the extravagance, Big Buns is ready to accommodate you with a special menu set for both.

For a side order you can delve into the layered loaded fries that come anywhere between naked and volcanic. Amazing!

The Drink

A limited choice of soft drinks – but let’s be honest, you didn’t come here for that, did you!

The Place

It’s fitting that something so ridiculously dirty like the triple smash burger comes from the cavernous depths of Distrikt – the latest residency from the guys that brought us the Falafel burger! And the space is an allrounder when it comes to eating, socialising and partying. You can easily start and finish your night here if you wanted!

Big Buns is a 5-minute walk from Leeds Station. And it’s nestled between the old (Leeds Corn Exchange) and the new (Trinity & Victoria) shopping destinations.
