Blue Cheese Hamburgers in UK

Neil Major | Aug 13, 2001 10:21 AM


I was up visiting friends in Leicester last weekend and whilst there had to pop into TJ's, a local fast food chain. For those who've never had them, TJ's burgers are the best burgers IMHO in the UK. Great tasty burgers flame grilled with loads of gooey stuff. Some of the burgers are so messy that some of my friends used to eat them with a knife and fork although for me that's sacrilege.
One of the main specialities was the blue cheese burger (1/4 pound not half pound to get just the right amount of sauce to burger) which was manna, especially after a few pints like most good greasy food. There is a time for sushi and a time for grease and that's normally after drinking.
Anyway my question for anyone out there, do you know of anywhere else in the UK that does the blue cheese burger, particularly in London? Also does anyone know how to recreate the TJ's blue cheese sauce? The only way I've ever got close is with Selfridges blue cheese mayonnaise, which I somehow doubt is what they use.
