Lads is an amazing little burger joint in Jumeirah 3. It joins a segment bursting at the seams, making the impact it is having all the more impressive. The interior of the tiny restaurant is graphic, colourful and funky but I think the benches and highchairs they use will make it challenging to seat families comfortably. Prices are surprisingly reasonable, and water is free – kudos/respect.
Lads burgers are perfectly sized, big enough to wow! without leaving stretchmarks around your jawline. But more importantly, their burgers are delicious. I visited Lads with three self-confessed burger connoisseurs. All three had ear-to-ear smiles on their faces when leaving. Two of us tried their Classic burger and the other two their 70’s burger. Both are really good, up there with the best in Dubai. Their fries are really cool too, shaped like little pipes which have been cut in half – perfect for scooping salsa or ketchup.
Service at Lads is friendly and hugely accommodating. One in our opinionated group didn’t feel his burger was cooked the way he wanted. Chef Zaher immediately had it changed, personally checked to see if it was to his satisfaction the second time around. But the real star of the show was our chatty young Filipina waitress who managed our rowdy group with infinite patience.
This cheerful little burger joint has catapulted itself into my top ten. If you like burgers, this is a must visit outlet.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
