If you were to open a new burger joint and called it simply “Burgers”, you might be accused of a woeful lack of creativity.

But use a futuristic font, change the odd letter, introduce numbers and dress it all up in a sexy black and red colour scheme and hey presto, you’re down with the kids. Or should that be kidz?

Of course, satiric misspelling is nothing new.

Perhaps you don’t give it a second thought while you’re eating your Krispy Kreme or Weetabix while listening to Led Zeppelin and the Beatles.

The ‘6’ in 6URGERZ seems to refer to the exact amount of signature burgers available on the menu which might prove restrictive for future expansion.

But then again it never seemed to bother Henry Heinz who hardly stuck to his 57 varieties, and who also enjoyed the odd misspelling; remember Beanz Meanz Heinz?

The orthographic gymnastics continue into the menu, with ‘6illionaire’ milkshakes and ‘Strawbreeze’ mocktails.

A handful of starters provide a finger-picking buffet to get you going, including ribs, nachos and chicken tenders, and then it’s on to the main event.

Six might not be the most extensive main course choice I’ve ever come across, but the variety is certainly there to satisfy most tastes, from plain to hot, indian to full english, and the ‘6th Burger’ appears to arrive with double everything.

And for a menu with only six mains, a choice of five types of fries (waffle, American, loaded, cheesy bacon etc) and eight types of dip might be seen as a little bottom-heavy.

I went for The Hatcher (£4.45), an unusual sounding creation which I couldn’t decide would be incredible or inedible.

It’s a beef patty enveloped in homemade cheesy mac then wrapped in golden breadcrumbs and deep fried, and is completely devoid of bread.

The actual burger is clearly a class above your supermarket fayre, and is a quality filling to an otherwise mess of a main course.

This, dear reader, is not something to attempt without a whole tube of kitchen roll, and if you can manage to turn a blind eye to the dietary badness of it all, it’s a bit delicious.

I’m glad I chose if for the sheer experience, but next time I’ll be reverting to a far tider traditional burger.

Opposite me was a Hot One, consisting of a beef patty within a brioche bun, topped with American cheese, red onion, jalapenos, chopped green chillis and delicious chilli cheese dip.

It was accompanied by crunchy waffle fries, and because it’s hard to refuse loaded fries too we chose cheesy bacon fries. The bacon was actually turkey rashers, with cheese, peppers, red onions and barbecue sauce.

As if there’d be room for more, but just in case there’s a modest cursory offering of brownies, cheesecake and churros to make the blow-out complete.

So, if it’s good quality, home made reasonably priced and interesting burgers you’re after, this is your place.

Just don’t write about it; it’ll drive your spellchecker nutz.
