WIth the once-humble burger joint taking over the UK’s High Streets, the fast-food’s rise is being celebrated today, Friday 25th August, as National Burger Day.

But with so much choice, how can you be sure you’re getting value for money?

Discount website www.myvouchercodes.co.uk has put together what they say is the 'Definitive' list of burgers*, weighing them up, pound per pound, price versus burger meat content, so you can see just which chains are actually offering you the best value for money.

The meaty treats have also been stacked in four key categories: Cheat Day, Pay Day, Date Night and Late Night Munchies.

Perhaps surprisingly, Five Guys offers less value for money than the higher end restaurants - its 3.5oz burger costing £6.75 (£30.86 per lb) compared to just £24.83 per lb for Miller & Carter.

McDonalds (£8.90 per lb) Red Dog Saloon (£47.73 per lb)

Burger King (£9.32 per lb) Red's True BBQ (£32.48 per lb)

Wimpy (£11.40 per lb) Five Guys (£30.86 per lb)
