If you’re looking for good value fast food, in particular burgers, you need to get yourself a Shake’N’Burg. 

Whoever thought of combining a classic milkshake with a greasy burger definitely deserves a pay rise.

Not only does this combo satisfy both your sweet and savoury taste buds, but it’ll also keep you full for longggg.

In typical American style, these burgers are stacked full to the brim. Out of them all, the Hot Chick Zai Burg has to be our fave. 

This spicy chicken burger is coated in hot SnB sauce, and the burger is packed with red onions, and rocket, topped with American cheese…drooling yet?
