“Melt in your mouth burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

My son who is a chef recommended we have lunch here and I can say they are the best burgers I have ever had ! Atmosphere was amazing (very busy) and we had to wait around 15 mins to be seated. The pulled pork burger just melted in my mouth. Hubby had the Lamb and feta cheese which he enjoyed more that the pork whilst son also had the pork. We shared a serve of chips and had soft drinks instead of alcohol. Price was extremely good with burgers $10 but you can upgrade to a larger size if you are game ! We will definitely being going back again ! Thanks for an awesome lunch

“Quite possibly the best burgers in Sydney!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Wow. What amazing burgers. I’ve been here a couple of times now, tried a few different burgers and each and every one was absolutely delicious.

The pulled pork was the perfect combination of velvety smooth meat, crunchy coleslaw and tangy bbq sauce. It was like being back in New Orleans, real southern comfort food. The chicken burger was moist and tasty with a nice little kick from the hot sauce mayo.

A friend who had the fish burger and said it was a perfectly balanced combination of flavours, nothing was overpowering and each element worked together to create an altogether heavenly burger.

Another had the beef burger (without the cheese) and said it was quite simply one of the best burgers she thinks she’s ever had. Ever. And she’s eaten her fair share of burgers over the years. In particular, she loved the tomato jam and mustard mayo and thinks they took the burger from being good to great.

We all agreed that the buns play a not insignificant role in the overall appeal of the burgers. It has the glossy, deep colour of brioche without the sweetness and it is slightly dry and crumby but still soft. Most importantly, it held all the fillings together right to the very end and didn’t disintegrate midway, meaning you could enjoy the burger experience right to the very end.

The sweet potato fries are a nice alternative to your usual regular potato fries, which are also available. One serve was more than enough for me plus one.

Being licensed, you can grab a cold beer or glass of wine with your burger and they have a nice selection of boutique beers to go with the usual suspects. They also do milkshakes that can only be described as luscious – the salted caramel in particular is to die for.

I’m looking forward to working my way through the rest of the burgers and some of the other snacks and ‘bigger’ dishes on the menu. And maybe one day I’ll have enough room to try one of the amazing sounding desserts.
