“Possibly worst burger ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

I was staying at the the sheridan plaza across the road and thought I would try Rex's for a burger based on the reviews on here.

Quite possibly the worst attempt at a burger I have ever seen. Half ended up in the bin. Chip were over cooked as well.

Place was dirty and hot when I walked in and staff hardly spoke any english. I had second thoughts but percivered.

Won't do that gain.

“good value, good quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

I got takeaway from Rex's Burger Bar on recommendation of a local and it was excellent. A great steak burger! They also have an extensive breakfast menu at good prices but I wasn't around for that. Maybe next visit!

“Good, cheap burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012 via mobile

The services wasn't particularly friendly and the atmosphere was not great, but the food that I have tried from rex's is good value and pretty tasty.

$8.50 for a works burger which is packed with beef, bacon, egg, pineapple, cheese and various salads is a huge meal to get through. I can't imagine leaving hungry.

I would recommend chronicling the take away option and eating in the park on the esplanade. I think the food would be better enjoyed in nicer surroundings
