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

Discount website 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.
