Friday night; To celebrate the end of the working week I did some research on Melbourne's Best Burgers. This place was fairly local so thought to give it a go.

First and foremost... Parking.
Parking along Swan street is challenging st the best of times, let alone on a Friday night. Luckily I managed to find a park 50min away. For those that cannot find a park, there are a couple of car parks close by: Adolph Street, Cremorne and 64 Brighton street, Richmond - both of these are under a 5min walk.

Inside there are about 8 tables and it's fresh and light look about the restaurant.
The staff are very friendly and welcoming.
Having a look at the menu there is a small/medium range of burgers but all look delicious and appear to represent good value for money.
Be warned - CASH ONLY!

The food/drink for the night was;
- Thunderburger
- Bacon Cheese Fries
- Salted Caramel Milkshake

The food was delivered in approximately 15min, which was a tad on the slow side, Milkshake within 5min.
The burger was well presented and you could see the ingredients were of quality.
The bun itself was light and delicious and so was the chilli mayo.
The meat patty was well done, which is not what I would of expected at a gourmet burger bar... putting that aside, the burger was exceptionally hot and even after 5min it was still too hot to appreciate the flavours - they were all lost in the heat. To me the overall flavour was quite bland, rather disappointing to what appeared to be a burger I would of salivated over.
The bacon cheese fries were presented well, the bacon was crunchy and generous and the cheese tasted good quality and was also generous. My personal preference would of been thicker chips instead of shoe string fries (e.g: would of preferred KFC thickness chips instead of McDonald's), hopefully this will change but regardless it was tasty.
The Milkshake was absolutely Devine.
Good balance between the salt and caramel and a good consistency. Spectacular Milkshake left me wanting more.

Restrooms, just 1 at the back of the restaurant (behind counter).

SUMMARY

Overall a good experience, hopefully when you read this your burger won't me "boiling hot" so you can actually savour the flavours - if so, it will be a stunning burger!
Make sure you get a Milkshake and be sure to have cash on you to pay.
I do find it annoying in this day and age that only cash is accepted.

Went to 1090 after recommendation from friends. Shop was clean & tidy and service was friendly enough. Purchased burger with fries for about 13 bucks.
I hate to sound too harsh but found the burger was nothing special. In actual fact it tasted pretty much like one from the major burger chains but not as greasy.
I guess if you were a local it wouldnt be too bad but I certainly would not travel too far out of my way to go there again.

Nice burgers actually. Great bun texture and they actually do nice onion rings which are something Australians don't usually do well.
I thought it was VG.

Very nice burger. I had the double beer, double cheese and bacon one and it certainly was nice. Very messy unfortunately but could have been the burger. Well priced and nice service.
