Just Burgers and Beers, Edinburgh

Before we headed up to bonnie Scotland for a few days, I googled 'best burgers in Edinburgh,' which led us to reserve a table at Just Burgers and Beers, on High Street, off The Royal Mile.
The feel of the place was similar to Grillstock, very industrial and a small-ish menu. The drinks list, however, was mammoth. As it was our first stop in Edinburgh, we both chose to try Scottish lagers. I opted for Innis & Gunn (and later realised that pretty much every pub has this on tap) and Ash went for Drygate Bearface lager from Glasgow. After a long morning of travelling and getting our bearings, both drinks went down pretty easily...
 Next up was the food... check out this menu! It took us a little while decide, but both of our choices turned out to be great ones.
Service was pretty fast (I guess because we were there at 12.30 on a Wednesday) and it wasn't long before we tucked into these bad boys...
My burger, above, was a Johnny Cash. Cooked to perfection, with just the right amount of sweetness from the caramelised onion, I can hand on heart say it's one of the best burgers I've had. Ever!
Ash chose The Dirty South, with pulled pork and hickory smoked BBQ sauce - he says it was amazing too.
We shared fries and coleslaw, and munched away to our hearts content. Not only were the burgers delicious, they lined our stomachs perfectly for the Grassmarket pub crawl which took up our first afternoon in the beautiful city!
