Byron Brings Back the B-Rex Burger…

Byron B-Rex Burger

A burger with a dinosaur theme? Now THAT’S something relevant to my interests. Say hello (again) to the Byron B-Rex…

The Byron B-Rex burger was first spotted on menus back in 2014, but ended up facing extinction to make way for new offerings. This year, the restaurant chain has gone all Jurassic Park to bring back this much-loved favourite. I went along to the re-launch evening for the Byron B-Rex burger at the High Street Kensington branch, to see if the burger’s as ‘roar-some’ as it sounds…

The B-Rex burger features your classic, meaty Byron hamburger patty, with American cheese and a crispy onion ring. What makes it special, though, is the sweet-with-a-hint-of-spicy BBQ sauce and jalapenos, which give it a much welcome kick. It’s juicy, saucy, and definitely has plenty of bite from the sweet and spicy combo, and next time I go to Byron, this one’s what I’ll be ordering.

As well as bringing back the B-Rex Burger, Byron have also added some B-Rex Onion Rings to the menu – topped with all the things that make the B-Rex great: cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce and mayonnaise.

For non-meat eaters, the Veggie Rex (V-Rex) offers a bean patty; and if you fancy a change from beef, there’s also the Cluck-osaurus Rex (C-Rex)…you guessed it, a chicken version.

Side note: We were given a lovely goody box with some Byron bits in to take home, including a bottle of their hot sauce which I can confirm is my new favourite spicy condiment.

Freakshake Bar at Byron Burgers B-Rex Launch Event
Freakshake at Byron Burgers B-Rex Launch Event

Instead of your traditional puddings, I went for a liquid dessert, in the form of an Oreo Freakshake, taking advantage of the special Freakshake Bar laid on for the launch. Byron’s Oreo Milkshake is deliciously chocolatey, relatively thick but still easy to drink, and topped with plenty of real Oreo pieces. Truth being told, I couldn’t finish it – but I sure as hell wanted to…

The B-Rex burger is definitely a welcome re-addition to the menu, and great for anyone looking for a twist on the classic Byron burger!
