Critic's review

Katharine Jacobs

Food
This suburban outpost of the popular burger joint is one of the more atmospheric places to dine in the area. You’re here for burgers, but consider beginning with a calzoncini – a sort of folded pizza bread. The creamy peri-peri chicken, caramelized onion and mozzarella one is downright moreish. From there, progress to the main event: one of the tasty burgers with inventive toppings. The bacon jam burger with cheddar, lettuce and dusted onions has a great, sweet, tangy jam; while the Original Royale features great battered onion rings, bacon, chillies and cheddar. Sides are extra.

This branch also offers soft floury tacos and some really good pizzas. Finish with a waffle, or the absurd-sounding but absolutely delicious deep-fried Oreos with ice cream.

Drinks
Milkshakes are served as their own event, within vast goblets that invite sharing. Try the Lindt chocolate brownie flavour or a salted caramel popcorn milkshake. There are also cocktails, beers and a simple wine list with familiar labels, featuring some reasonably priced options by the glass.

Ambience
This branch is popular with students, so expect a lively hum inside. Leather banquettes with warm, low lighting and lots of dark wood keep things sophisticated, though.

Service
Friendly and generally good.

And…
Their burgers are made using free-range, grass-fed beef from Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants.

  • What I like about Hudson's is that they trendy and have a big variety. They also inexpensive and the environment is relaxing, exactly what I need after a rough week. Definitely my top burger restaurant.

  • Great burgers, attentive staff coupled with a vibey restaurant. The food and drinks are fantastic and excellently priced. Always busy, even if it is a more upmarket burger franchise which is a testament to the friendly, helpful service and amazing food . Best Margarita’s

  • The ambience isn't bad and neither was the food. However, the service was rather slow. Very average experience
