We arrived at about 6:30 on a Friday night and there was a crowd of around 15 people already waiting outside. After 20 minutes and some tasty complimentary fries, we were ushered in. The atmosphere is good with loudish music and a huge range of beers, cocktails, and spirits. And of course there are the famous burgers. I enjoyed a... More

Three types of burgers, fried chicken and fries.. That's it for the menu.. Perfectly simple. Service was fast and friendly - except for one female greeter upstairs. She clearly was in a mood and not at all interested in working. The guys were all friendly and running about. I must be getting old though as the music was a tad... More

Plus points - Great venue - Decent drinks menu - Nice ambiance Minus points - actually the worst/rudest/dont give a toss staff i have ever experienced. More concerned about looking good, being cool and having a laugh with each other than actually doing their job. -waited 20 mins for someone to take our drinks order and another 20 after that...

Always mentioned in the top burgers list in Sydney, we just had to try this place. The burger joint is tucked in one of the side streets along Newtown's main street, King's street. One can easily miss it since they didn't have any sign outside. We ordered Mary's burgers which was basically a cheeseburger with fresh lettuce leaves and a... More

I don't eat burgers and neither do I like going to ones that make you queue. But Mary's is different. This underground place is totally wicked. The few but amazing burgers are amazing and guilt free. Their cocktails are one of the best you can get, in a city where 80% of cocktails are rubbish. If you love Gin, then... More

Maccas cheeseburger and KFC original recipe remade with high quality ingredients, but just as fatty. Deeply satisfying in a dim, grungy environment as only Newtown can deliver with some delicious, albeit pricey cocktails. A true hipster experience. Went there on a lazy Sunday early afternoon with very few patrons, so service was good.

Great fatty food ruined by absolutely disgusting staff. Your supposed to have laid back fun staff at these establishments. They are so cold and rude, we gave them three shots but we are DONE. Fail. 1. Walked in, looked around for waiter or table, they kept ignoring us so we took a seat. Waitress finally approached us (long dark hair... More

Their image is underground, direct and not the place to bring out your parents type place. The service is of course not exceptional/conventional but it fits the theme and adds the experience, however their customer service was tested when they got my order wrong, no fuss was made, waiter came up to say "our bad crudely" with apologies and fixed...
