What sets Bird apart is that the owners have studied the craft of Nashville hot chicken meticulously. Bird offers Nashville hot chicken at a range of heat levels from ‘country’ for those with sensitive palates all the way up to ‘hot’, which should come with a medical waiver. Plus, they offer fries, mac and cheese, coleslaw and the Nashville take on sweet corns.

Bird, River Walk, Al Hussain Ibn Ali, At Taawun, Riyadh 12475, Sun to Wed 5pm to 1am, Thurs to Sat 5pm to 2am. @bird.saudia

Oh sweet beefy goodness us… the buns are soft, and the beef patties are spiced and cooked to perfection at Riyadh burger joint Bucan. So, run to your car now to sink your burger-loving face into the Meesh Burger – grilled Angus beef patty, crispy pumpkin, lettuce, grilled mushrooms and onions, cheddar cheese and special sauces. For those who favour chicken burgers, their grilled chicken is a good option.

Bucan, Prince Murqin Ibn Abdulaziz St, An Nuzhah, Riyadh 12474, daily noon to 4am. Tel: 053 068 6864. @bucan.sa

Cleaver Burger

Cleaver Burger keeps it simple: Wagyu burger, and that’s it. You can add an extra beef patty, cheese, or caramelised onions, but they’re not offering lettuce, tomato, or other toppings. That is the way their burger comes. You’ll also want to get some fries on the side.

Cleaver Burger, Takhassusi St. An Nakheel, Riyadh 12384, Sat to Thurs 12.30pm to 1.30am & Fri 1pm to 1.30am. @cleaver_burger

Why stick with a plain chicken burger when you can have Cajun chicken burger(s)? The Honey Mayo burger is hard to pass up. But if you like things spicy, The Burnin’ Buffalo is a winner. It’s loaded with a crunchy Cajun chicken breast, cheese, coleslaw, and the good ol’ spicy buffalo sauce.

Dirty Byrd, Centro Plaza, Northern Ring Rd, An Nakheel, Riyadh 12394, daily 12.30pm to 2am. Tel: 011 212 1784. @dirtyxbyrdksa
