Recipes – World Cup Burgers – French Beef, Blue and Brown

French cuisine is, I am reliably informed by Wikipedia, famous for their rich tastes and subtle nuances and it has a long and diverse history.

Jack Ruby – Kim Jong Un Burger

Jack Ruby has been a firm favourite of Burger Me since we first ventured through their doors back in 2013.

Jack Ruby – Tex Walker


A little while back now, we stumbled across the Jack Ruby menu when looking for a location for a work lunch. From the moment we cast a cursory glace over the menu we found ourselves salivating over the prospect of having…..well anything from the menu to be perfectly honest.
