Just swap out the beef patty for fried chicken, grilled chicken, fried fish, chickpea fritter… the possibilities are endless! We’ve selected 10 of the tastiest burgers around Australia just for you – try them out and let us know which one is your favourite!
The spread of this burger joint from Surfers Paradise is how you know Brooklyn Depot is making its mark on the Australian burger scene. Our recommendation is the hot and spicy Fuhgeddaboutit. Choose one of four chilli sauces of varying spiciness served in a syringe. With grass-fed beef patty, beef chilli, American cheese, onion rings, chilli relish and a ‘lethal injection’ of hot sauce, you won’t ‘fuhged’ about this burger anytime soon.
Bite into one of these bad boys and you’ll see why Huxtaburger is lauded as one of the top burger joints in Australia. We guarantee their Cheesus will be the cheesiest burger you’ll have all year. Imagine this: two juicy beef patties garnished with pickles, topped with double cheese AND cheesy mayo, with a splash of mustard and tomato sauce. Cheesus, indeed.
This Asian-style burger joint is a unique gem in a sea of (very delicious) burger stores. The absence of traditional burger mainstays like tomato sauce, might surprise you at first, but don’t worry; you definitely won’t find yourself missing them. Prepare for the explosion of flavour from their inimitable relishes, ranging from sweet-and-sour Chinese-inspired sauce to Korean chilli. Our favourite is the Thai Boxer: a combination of BBQ pork, chilli mayo, pineapple, Asian slaw and herbs like lemongrass. You won’t be able to find something like this anywhere else.
Hello Harry is proof that all you really need for a smash-hit burger joint are great cooks working with great ingredients. The Crumbed Queensland Barramundi Burger is our favourite. Accompanied by freshly baked brioche buns, crisp lettuce, zesty lemon, dill and caper aioli, this might be the best fish burger of your life.
This was once a small, hidden back-lane burger joint. But then word of mouth and the Sydney Morning Herald’s stamp of approval happened. Now? It’s at the forefront of the burger world. Their Veg Burger is a thing of beauty, sure to satisfy even the biggest meat lover. The combination of spiced chickpea fritter, grated beetroot and creamy honey labne is just heavenly. Try it, and thank us later.
If you’re craving some quality burgers with an old-school vibe, you’re in luck. Here at Skipping Girl, each brioche bun is stamped with the logo and all components of your burger are made fresh everyday. Blue Moon is our burger of choice. The delicious wagyu beef patties go perfectly with the blue and cheddar cheeses, lettuce, onion, pickles and famous homemade Skipping Girl sauce.
You’ve probably seen some of Down N’ Out’s burgers go viral on Instagram, and for good reason. Their weekly specials are absolutely insane, but don’t overlook their stellar permanent menu. Their Chick’n Burger is just the thing for when you want a change from a standard beef patty. With southern fried chicken thigh, shredded lettuce, pickled red onion and house ranch, it’s basically your favourite fried chicken sandwiched between burger buns.
There’s a good reason this burger bar has a cult following. Of course, we appreciate the long list of punny names on the menu (which includes Pablo Escoburger and Mac Burger Pro, to name a couple), but more than that, we love their ridiculously delicious burgers. Just take a look at 3am: it’s filled with pressed wagyu beef patty, maple smoked bacon, guacamole, ZP sauce and, best of all, their signature Kanye’s fried cheese sticks.
Thirsty Bird pretty much only serves chicken, but rest assured – they know their chicken. Yankee Burger is a grilled chicken burger, perfected. Sink your teeth into the juicy, flavoursome grilled chicken, topped with crispy bacon, melting cheese, and tangy pickles. Chicken burgers don’t get much better than this.
Can’t decide between burgers or Korean for your next meal? Juicy Lucy has got you covered. Korean fried chicken has shot to international fame in the past couple of years, thanks to a certain K-drama. So really, it was only a matter of time before someone put two and two together. Voila, the Lil Kim – a Korean-inspired fried chicken burger with its crispy chicken, creamy slaw, sour-and-spicy kimchi and Korean BBQ sauce.
