Could Bunz be your new favourite burger spot in Milton Keynes?

AD – This is part of a paid partnership with Bunz. All content and opinions are my own.

Milton Keynes has gained another independent burger spot – And I think you’re going to enjoy this one. Bunz is owned by two long-term friends and opened just behind the Brunel Centre in Bletchley towards the end of 2023. They are on a mission to bring delicious and exciting burgers to Milton Keynes. Having survived the toughest month of the year, they have already received a great response on social media and attracted a lot of fantastic reviews. I am always impressed when a new indie opens, especially at a tricky time of year. I am excited to see what is in store for them this year!

I popped in for lunch to try their menu for myself. Keep scrolling to find out what I thought. I can’t promise that you won’t be hungry after reading this…

Fresh flavours made in-house

Despite being a takeaway joint, no shortcuts are taken at Bunz. They pride themselves on making all of their sauces in-house. Any chef will know that this takes time, but the flavour payoff is worth it. The ingredients they use in their burgers are also as fresh and local as possible. The meat is Angus beef which is renowned for its flavour.

I spoke to the owner and he explained that this is part of their wider vision at Bunz. “Our plan here at Bunz is to explore a world of flavours and bring them to our wings and burgers. We want to make sure that every bite is a flavourful experience.”

You’ll find yourself faced with two difficult decisions at Bunz: Which patty and which burger to choose?

The food at Bunz

You will find yourself faced with two difficult decisions when you come to look at the menu: Which type of patty (gourmet or smashed) and which burger to choose?

The gourmet burgers are your traditional burgers, whereas the smashed patties are thinner and offer delicious caramelisation around the edges. This was my choice as they are easier to eat in my opinion and there’s more room for extras. The menu also features chicken burgers if beef isn’t your thing.

In addition to the core menu, Bunz also offers monthly specials to keep things fresh and exciting. In February, you’ll find Cuban Fritas, a Cuban tomato sauce base topped with shredded fried potatoes. January’s ‘Honey Bunz’ special sounded mouthwatering, a fried chicken breast fillet dipped into Hot Honey.

So what did I make of the food?

I tried the Big Bunz (from £9.49) which features two meat patties, double cheese, bacon rashers, caramelised onions, gherkins and secret sauce. In addition to the stacked burger, I had seasoned fries (£2.99) and boneless wings tossed in a Dynamite sauce (£6.49). The homemade Tiramisu (£3.99) was also a great sweet addition to the meal.

Everything was super fresh and tasty – I can’t wait to try the rest of the menu.

Everything was super fresh and tasty. You could taste the quality of the ingredients. What was so impressive, however, was how solid the burger stayed. Now this is down to the bun! They use potato brioche which helps keep things sturdy, so even if it travels a little while, it will arrive in tip-top condition with no soggy bottom. The buns are sourced from a local bakery in Bletchley.

The patties were tender, the bacon was crispy, the gherkins were punchy and the sauce had a little kick to it which I loved. As for the wings, I loved the Dynamite sauce which was sticky and also had a bit of a kick to it. It’s great that you can opt for boneless. I can’t wait to try the rest of the menu!
