A Rox for all your houses

BCer Neil feels blessed by the nearby presence of Rox Burger (82 Lee High Road) and is anxious that as many people as possible pack their colons with its wares, so that it can flourish. He writes:

Went to Rox Burgers last night and it was effing brilliant. For a start, they ask you how you want it done - what joy! Got a cheeseburger, medium rare, loads of cheese - smothered in it. Burger was nice and juicy, crisp, fresh salad, brioche bun (as they all insist on doing now). And the chips were sensational.

First bite was messy but once it got that out of its system no mess, the perfect hand food. No booze license yet but that’s fine as for me burgers and chips are one of the few things that make coca cola the way to go.

I urge you to visit. Probably the best I've had since #meateasy went to join the hoorays. It was all I could do not to embrace the fellow that cooked it. They're on twitter and facebook and will be delivering soon apparently. Bet it's at least as good as anything the ridiculous model market is dishing up and these don’t charge you to get in.

It's a shame there is no decent burger place in Brockley Cross (very poor area for tasty fast food). Does anyone even go in Mo-pho , that Carribean Place and Gulens #1 and Gulens (why are they all called Gulens?) #2 anymore?
I did have some excellent chips from Fishy Business recently though.

Only a matter of time, surely.

Yes, Yes, Yes, Not much as far as I can see.

there's also a jerk chicken gaff opened across from rox's, next to the cafe (gigi's?) that lasted only a few months. wonder if they're on some kind of rent deal in an attempt at kick-starting the night time economy round there. finally, bertie rooster's has a rival

Mo-Pho is always busy, rightly so as well. Nice guys and good food.

A quality new place would definitely raise the bar. I wanted to like Mo-pho but it never really set the taste buds alive, bit of a bleak interior too, needs that "homely Asian cafe" feel all those new little places seem to have.

Model Market is now charging people to get in - are you sure?

Brockley Nick said...

Yes, in the evening, see the Model Market review thread.

It's all going to the dogs... I wanted to go for a drink at Frank's Cafe in Peckham last Thu and there was a massive queue to get in and bouncers! I used to be able to ride my bike right to the top, lean it against a wall, grab a drink and admire the view! What's happening?

Headhunter said...

Anyone remember "Eternal Jerk" in Brockley...? Ah the memories...

Scott said...

Well, I went to Model Market during the second week of opening (on a Friday night) and wasn't charged, so if a new policy has come in, I can completely empathise with BC'er Neil's frustration.

I saw ROX burger when I was in the very good Taste Inn next door and have been meaning to visit.

Neil - how does ROX compare to Burger Bear over in Nunhead? I rate their burgers highly so interested to compare.

Martin said...

I totally disagree - I love the food, I like the decor which looks crisp and clean and the staff are very friendly. I say more places like this!

Hmm said...

Top Chef have been doing good, honest burgers for years now.

Very exciting !! We will be moving from Clapton/Hackney to Lewisham Central in a few weeks, and already eyeballed ROX BURGER. Looks very nice from the outside... Can't wait to try it out.

it's three quid per person to get in. pretty annoying as everything is quite pricey anyway and it all adds up. doesn't seem to be putting people off though.

i forgot to say that they do (or they did a few weeks ago) have free marshmallows to toast in the fire pits by most of the bars. that was a nice touch and helped ease the pain of paying 3 pounds to get in and spend even more money...

They were always going to charge to get in, after 7pm. It was only free for the first two weeks introduction period. All editions of Street Feast has thus policy. Doesn't put us off.

Se4ldn said...

I go to all of them. Mo Pho is always busy. Gulens isn't sadly. London Beer Dispensary has decent burgers, but nothing mind blowing.

Thank you so much ! it is so great!! So glad you enjoyed it!
