Seriously good hamburgers with all the trimmings have made this burger chain a benchmark over the last decade. Bite into a generous bun and taste a real old-fashioned burger made using free-range, grass-fed beef supplied by local artisanal butcher Frankie Fenner. Whet your appetite with delicious triple-cheese chilli poppers and guacamole with GMO-free tortilla chips. The salads are just as fresh, healthy and wholesome. The BBQ ribs and chicken wings are also very popular. But the burgers are the big crowd-pleaser, tempting with twenty different versions made from beef, brisket, free-range chicken, pork and ostrich. Imaginative burger toppings range from pulled pork and cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, feta or cream cheese) to mushrooms, spicy chilli relish, jalapenos and habaneros.
Vegetarians need not fear – options range from a vegan, falafel or chickpea-and-lentil burger to falafel tacos. Don’t forget to order sides of onion rings, sweet potato fries, skin-on fries and coleslaw. The retro shakes and waffles are straight out of your childhood, and come in classic Oreo, peanut butter, Bar One and salted caramel popcorn flavours.
The generous portions make for good value.
