The many burger flavours at The Shack are created by Gill herself, who has taken foodie inspiration from her world travels.

The talented chef has named each burger after important parts of her life.

Burgers are made fresh onsite daily.

The D.Y. burger, named after Gill’s late father, is one of The Shack’s most popular choices.

Gill also has The Chilli Rhumba named after the best years of her life.

It’s another house favourite.

Gill is well known in Dundee for her local charity work with the D.Y. Fund.
