Popsons does excellent burgers (unsurprisingly, since it’s from the people behind Causwells). The space is nicer than your average burger place, but not so upscale that you’ll get a steak knife impaling your food, or a $25 bill. Order at the counter and your burger will be ready quickly - we usually go with a double cheeseburger, or the “savory burger,” with mushrooms and truffle cheese. Don’t skip the fries, either. It’s not the best place for a leisurely meal, but it’s perfect for a quick bite.
