The proud home to Europe’s largest burger, the infamous ‘Beast’, Blacks Burgers is a lively American eatery in Croydon. The cosmopolitan diner-style interior is dotted with iconic New York prints, glossy tiling and smooth cream leather.

Famed for its hand-pressed burgers, the Blacks menu offerings are made with premium steak, with vegetarian and chicken creations also on offer. The Beast challenge sees Blacks restaurant diners attempt a 7lb burger with 6lb bun and all the trimmings, fries and a milkshake, with the cost waived for those who finish in a sub 1-hour time.

For something sweet, favourites at Blacks in Purley include churned Italian ice cream made from 100% natural ingredients, or waffles made with Blacks’ secret batter mix and lathered with delicious toppings. From the bar, indulge in thick shakes and nostalgic glass-bottled fizzy pop, or choose from the selective wine list.

A relaxed family favourite, Blacks Burgers in Croydon sits amongst the lively bustle of Brighton Road. Purley Train Station is a 4-minute walk away.

    The food was good but the restaurant lacked atmosphere. I would go back though.

    The staff members were attentive, smiling and thoughtful. I had some wonderful Sweet Potato fries. I had two children with me and they enjoyed the experience. They were treated the same as adult customers which is lovely. A good experience

    The food was excellent and the "specials" of the week were amazing.

    I was slightly disappointed with the décor in Blacks, it was very basic and more like a transport café than a restaurant. I'm vegan and the waiter was very helpful in accommodating that and pointing out what I could have. However, I found the menu slightly confusing with the four different stages of deciding how you want your burger and when my meal arrived it looked a bit sad and lacking in colour. The burger was slightly dry but that's probably because I didn't order enough garnish to go on it, and the skinny fries were lacking in taste. I would have thought for the price that the burger would come with salad AND fries, not just one or the other For me the best feature of the restaurant was the helpful serving staff, although I don't think it's really necessary to be asked twice when eating if everything is all right.
