The HellFire 



Things are getting spookily spicy at Byron Burger this Halloween…step over the threshold and take a bite if you dare! The signature Byron burger has been given one hell of a devilish makeover this Halloween. Byron have taken their succulent 6oz Byron beef patty, topped it with crispy bacon, oozy American cheese, zingy pickled red onions and then added a little heat, spice and all things nice, with a ‘hellfire’ spicy siracha mayo and a Korean style hot sauce!


Available from the 18th October – 1st November at Bond Street Chelmsford.
