These are the most badass burgers in Kent

From brilliant beef to terrific toppings, the efforts and invention of two Kent burger joints have seen their creations named among the UK's 40 most badass burgers.

The list, compiled by leading Stag-Do company StagWeb, hails Big Boys Fine Burger Co in Folkestone and Roost Restaurant in Margate as being a slice above the rest in the area.

The review for Big Boys said: "When you’re on the hunt for the best burgers in the UK, you don’t want to be served pretentiously small portions, you want man-sized meals, the bigger, the meatier, the juicier the better.

"These guys tick all the boxes."

The top burger that brought the Folkestone eatery its status is the 'Fat Elvis', a monumental combination of peanut butter, raspberry jelly, bacon jam, American cheese, lettuce, tomato on top of a beef patty

Big Boys' chef, Gaz, said that his inspiration for the burger came from across the pond.

He said: "We like to do fun, out there, specials and one day I thought about peanut butter and jam sandwiches, a staple of American food!

'It's definitely a case of who dares wins...'- Gaz from Big Boys Fine Burger Co.

"So I made one for my lunch and decided to put a bit of bacon in it too. It blew me away.

"I had a recipe for bacon jam which I had developed for one of my old jobs and thought that it might work with the beef and jam and peanut butter. It did. It’s amazing.

"It turned out to be one of our best selling specials so we gave it a permanent place on our menu!

"It’s definitely one of those where you’ll either love it or hate it, but those who aren’t sure tend to avoid it and those who choose to have it absolutely love it!

"It's definitely a case of who dares wins!"

Not to be outdone, Margate-based Roost Restaurant and Café also made the list with their Mad Cow Burger, served (naturally) with chips & dip.

"This", the reviewer claims, "is ‘street food by the sea’ and they operate under the guise that food doesn’t need to be overcomplicated, it just needs to hit the spot.

"And their burgers hit the spot harder than a bucking beach donkey."
