Cult indie cheeseburger joint MEAT:STACK is officially opening in Leeds on Friday 10th June and are giving away free meals to the first 100 customers from 12pm. The Meat:Stack menu is loaded with beefy treats inspired by one of America’s most iconic creations. The brand has set itself apart from the competition by elevating the humble cheeseburger to extra–juicy greatness, turning it into an art form with its premium smashed patties, house made sauces and mouth-watering toppings.
With a real focus on quality, the team have crafted a small yet perfectly formed menu of double or triple cheeseburgers, sides, shakes and desserts that will satisfy even the most discerning of fast-food junkies. MEAT:STACK has built up a loyal following in the north of England since they first launched as a pop-up in 2016.
After operating within Newcastle’s historic Grainger Market for a couple of years, in 2020, they opened their first high street store on the Bigg Market in Newcastle, instantly blowing other burger joints out of the water with their attention to detail, authentic preparation methods and moreish flavour combos. Each patty is lovingly crafted with the perfect blend of rare and traditional beef cuts, sourced from award-winning free-range butcher’s Block and Bottle.
Melted gooey perfection
The beef is smashed into a raging hot grill, smothered with American cheese and all the trimmings, before being steamed to melted gooey perfection. Menu highlights include the bestselling French Canadian, which comes loaded with streaky bacon, blue cheese, garlic butter, chilli-maple syrup, hash brown, American cheese and signature Stack Sauce.
For the purists the classically American West Coast Classic is simplicity at its finest with American cheese, house made Stack Sauce and shredded lettuce. Fried chicken fiends will be all over the BBQ Chicken Stack, which is blessed with chicken tenders, Smoky Mountain Mayo, lettuce, crispy onions & chipotle BBQ.
The sides menu is equally as desirable and includes the ever-popular Triple Cheese Fries, which consists of beef dripping fries smothered with queso sauce, grated Red Leicester & parmesan.. The Filthy Fries encourage diners to get their hands dirty, with a killer combo of crumbled blue cheese, Signature Buffalo and crispy onions.
Those with a sweet tooth will gravitate towards the lush Jersey Shakes and soft serve ice cream, which come in a range of satisfying flavours, including Nutella, Peanut Butter and house made Raspberry Jam.
