Second visit here in a few months! The food is good but it comes without a side (most places you order a burger you get a handful of fries). Drinks were really pricy imo but thats city centre prices I suppose.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

The Boozy Cow fuses locally sourced and specially selected ingredients to create mouth-watering juicy burgers which are made on the premises fresh every morning by our talented team. Where possible we will be sourcing ingredients and working with local suppliers.

The Boozy Cow will also be bringing their popular chilli challenge to Edinburgh. The challenge sees contestants given 15 minutes to eat one chilli cheese burger, one chilli dog, one portion of chilli cheese fries and one Oreo milkshake. We invite you to party until the cows come home at 1am seven days a week, where you can expect an eclectic mix of music with DJs on Tuesday, Friday & Saturday nights.
