It’s possible you may have to call me out here for currently being one of the most useless food bloggers in Birmingham. It has taken us a whole year to manage to get round to visiting Original Patty Mens permanent digs down in Digbeth. Blame it on babies, broken arms or whatever you like, all poor excuses I know. I’ve not been short of seeing praise for the guys on my social media feeds so when we finally got around to heading down I was a bit like a kid in a sweet shop. Or a burger shop. I wanted it ALL!
I liked the unusual soft drinks. The Karma Cola was delightlyfully old school with root beers and cream sodas also available amongst others.
I did manage to reign in the fact I wanted to eat ALL the food not he menu and restrained my self to one burger and sharing some sides. I loved the presentation of the food – old school style paper wrapped burgers on trays.
Lee chose the BACON CHEESE – Aged longhorn beef patty, maple coated bacon, American cheese, fresh red onion, lettuce, pickle, ketchup, mustard. It really was as good as the picture looks!
More points here for worst blogger of the year. I had the special burger that was on that day – can’t remember its name and can’t really remember what was in it apart from jalepenos. What I do know is that it was awesome.
We had some very moresih sides of O.D.B FRIES – Triple cooked skin on fries with o.p.m spice mix, creamy house slaw with coriander and lime, sriracha mayo, crispy fried onions & fresh spring onion and SLOW COOKED BEANS – House made bbq beans cooked with bacon. Both were totally spot on. Unlike a lot of loaded fries that just get lost in the toppings, get really soggy these were so much better.
Family friendly? Yes – there were several families eating there whilst we were there and a couple with prams too. Theres a few steps down to the main eating area but these are easily negotiated, but there are bench style tables also in the first space you come into where there are no steps. They have Ikea high chairs too which is a bit of a win!
Great burgers, Great place. Go.
