The question which you are probably asking is, is it all hype, too pricey or genuinely worth the visit?

Iceburg is 100 per cent halaal (Angus & Wagyu beef and they do chicken). This place is next door to Heavenly Desserts at 23 Miller Arcade, Preston city centre.

It has only just opened so if you have not been I would definitely say GO! just to say “been there ate that”.

About the place:

Okay, so the worse thing was they do not receive their calls whatsoever. However, you are able to walk in and make a reservation or just walk in. Another thing I would say is their seating is small and quite cramped especially if there is more than four of you.

The ambience of this place such as the music, logo, interior design, atmosphere was chilled, relaxed, modern and definitely did not feel like we were in Preston (brownie points for pulling it off). It looks classy and it is definitely a restaurant which Preston needed (P.s Preston lacks in nice gourmet burger places).

How to order? What is their ordering like?

You are probably thinking why have you titled this “how to order?”. Well their system for ordering is not a good idea. If you are seated downstairs you have to come back up to order and once you have ordered your food and drinks you have to go to the bar (non-alcoholic drinks) to get your drinks. Which at this point you are probably thinking it isn’t a bad idea (in fact it is!). The area is too small to wait around to order then sit and wait for your drinks at the bar. The area to even order your food is NOT big enough for all the customers to actually go up and order and it confuses their own staff on who needs to be seated and who is waiting to order or collect their takeout.

What are their staff like?

Their staff are helpful and friendly. They did ask for feedback on the food, maintained basic customer skills and recommended good food. However they were a bit chaotic at seating customers wherever there is a space and not keeping track if a customer has already been seated at a table. However they need to stop saying “special ingredients or special shake” as the restaurant does not have information on allergies on their menu.

Review on food & drinks:

In all honesty, I have only tried two of their burgers (Ghostburg and Grillionaire). They definitely need to improve on their presentation and need to add more fillings inside their burgers. They do seem flat and on both occasion’s the presentation is slightly more different.

You can order a regular meal with your choice of burger, fries and a soft drink for an extra £2 which is worth it!

Unfortunately their menu does not have information on whether their food and drinks may contain nuts or other foods which you may be allergic to. Therefore their “GHOSTSHAKE” is not a good idea along with their unknown food and drinks.

Ghostburg (beef) 

Their secret burger with secret special ingredients. Grilled cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, red onions and beef with their special sauce with a hint of spice. Black bun!– has no flavour or taste just “do it for the gram” bun. Very fresh and clean meat. Filling for myself, but you might want to order a double for an extra £2! Definitely worth trying.

Price:
£10 for the single burger on its own
£12 for a double

Cheeseburg (beef)

Cheese sauce, tomatoes, lettuce, caramelised red onions and beef with their special sauce Very fresh and clean meat.

Filling for myself, but you might want to order a double for an extra £2. Definitely worth trying. It was the best cheeseburger ever.

Grillionaire (chicken)

Grilled chicken, caramelised red onions, tomatoes, lettuce, spice and their special sauce (texture was creamy which I did not like due to personal preference). Grilled chicken was very dry! Needs more sauce. Brioche bun- actually a nice bun Definitely do not recommend this burger

Price:
£5.50 which is not too bad for a single burger, however their portion sizes are small!
£7.50 for a double so for an extra £2 you might as well “go large!”

P.s if you are a massive chicken eater unfortunately they only have two options. If you are a vegetarian they do have falafel as their only option.

Sweet Potato Fries

I am a massive sweet potato fries fan!- could be made crispier

Mocktails: Fruits Of The Forrest – Fizzy, fruity and definitely worth a try! Cheap (£3.50), can get the large (£4.50)

Iceshake: Reece’s Peanut Butter Shake- £3.50 best shake I have had in a while- just make it thicker?!

I have already been to this place three times in a space of a few days. They must be doing something right?!
