We were invited to Archie’s Burgers Shakes and Waffles in Manchester to review one of their newest dish by Hellmann’s and Archie’s called the BLK Hot-As-Hell-Man Burger. Being chilli lovers, we were really looking forward to trying this new burger. Orchard Road is easily accessible by foot or by train, but take note that there are two Archie’s on Oxford Street (as we found out). One was just a take-away shop while the other (which we were reviewing) had dine in options. We arrived close to noon and found the shop to be packed and with a long que (strategically located close to Manchester University, many of the lunch time crowds were university students).
Luckily we made reservations, and we were guided downstairs by Mo our Manager to our seat. We love the striking pink and white colour theme of the restaurant which made the place vibrant. The outlet’s walls were painted cream giving it a more subtle look (unlike other fast food restaurants which usually plasters their walls with their current promotional items).
Our food came quickly, and it was delivered in a lovely tray, we noticed that others had theirs delivered in a little paper bag, which was cute. We also ordered sides of hot cheese crinkle fries, priced at £2.99 as well as the curly fries at £1.75 to accompany our meal.
We had the opportunity to taste their signature star milkshake which was the Million Dollar shake priced at £4.49. Consisting of Ferrero Rocher, fresh strawberries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and Cadbury Flake. I can assure you the drink was not only indulgent but really moreish! We also tried their Sunset Beach Smoothies, made from mango, banana and coconut and this is priced at £3.49. Their smoothie tasted less sweet and lighter but equally tasty.
Here’s a short video which we made of one of Archie’s staff creating the Million Dollar Milkshake for us. There have been lots of celebrities such as Neyo, Floyd Mayweather, Amir Khan, Princess Pia Mia, Game Time, Holly-Oaks, Naughty Nas who have created their own signature milkshakes at Archie’s. Hence if you’re a fan, another reason to head there to try your favourite star’s creation.
We ordered their BLK Hot-as-Hell-Man Chicken Burger which came in charcoal buns, the chicken chicken fillet was thick but not spicy for us and the burger also came with a slice of White Cheddar Cheese, lettuce and marinated in Hellmann’s Smokey Chipotle sauce.
