There’s no greater day than National Burger Day.

Here’s 4 glorious burger joints you simply cannot miss when in Dundee.

Go on… celebrate… we dare you.

1. The Shack Street Food

The Shack will celebrate its third birthday this year after opening in 2019.

The renowned foodie van serves freshly made burgers onsite daily.

The array of flavours in the burgers are all created by owner and talented chef Gill, who has taken inspiration from her world travels.

She’s even named each burger after important parts of her life.

Gill greets everyone with a warm welcome, and will guide you through the menu if need be.

And don’t worry – if you can’t finish your meal, local celebrity and The Shack’s resident pug, Newton Dogg, is always on hand to offer assistance.

Pacamara is a quaint speciality coffee shop located in Dundee’s bustling west end.

Serving coffees from all over the world – there is always something new and exciting to try here.

The service at Pacamara is always fantastic, and the staff are well known for being friendly and engaging.

Channelling some serious Instagram bribes – you’ll want to bag that all important brunch snap as soon as you arrive.

Pacamara has a vast selection of vegan and vegetarian options.

The cafe may only have three burgers on its menu but the ones it does have all the boxes.

Just because its national burger day doesn’t mean we wouldn’t talk about our favourite veggie burger.

The homemade sweet potato falafel burger at Pacamara is fresh, beautifully seasoned and the toppings are amazing!
