Best Burgers in Melbourne

Dear whoever invented burgers. We thank you. Where would we be without you? Probably a whole lot skinnier… but definitely a whole lot sadder.

With what seems like a new burger place opening every week here in Melbourne, I wanted to share my favourites!

Collingwood, CBD, Prahran, Hawthorn
Already a Melbourne institution, Huxtaburger’s success has allowed it to open up in a few locations. Brioche bun, juicy patties, is there much more to say? If you STILL have not tried one of these, go right now!

Andrew’s Burgers
144 Bridport Street, Albert Park
Now these are nothing but honest ol’ fashioned burgers, done right. They are so massive, the only way to eat a burger from Andrew's, is to actually put you face into it. Dress appropriately ladies and gents, if you don’t get any food on your chin (maybe even on your cheeks!) then you are doing it wrong.

Jus Burgers
364 Chapel Street, South Yarra
Starting out in Perth, these guys are all about promoting and using locally sourced ingredients. You can definitely taste the love here – and they also serve up a pretty good vegetarian option, if you are that way inclined. Cut and battered fresh daily, be sure not to overlook the onion rings here!

Parlour Diner
64 Chapel Street, Windsor
If you’re after a modern American style Diner… then this is IT! Be sure to try their milkshakes, and for something a little different, the Asian pork sliders are a definite winner. Obviously try the curly fries right?

The Beer and Burger Bar
112 Swan Street, Richmond
This is a great place to go before the footy, but be sure to allow plenty of time, as they get SUPER busy on game days (actually any day!). If you are feeling super adventurous then you might want to check out their burger challenge, otherwise, a regular sized burger will fill you up just fine. It is hard to go past their delicious Beef Burger, but if you are feeling… game… they do a fantastic Game Burger which changes regularly.

8 Bit Burger
8 Droop St, Footscray
Gamers and nerds, listen up, this is the burger place for you! Everyone else? It’s for you too! I doubt anyone could find something to complain about this awesome burger shop. Not only have they gone into great detail with the d├ęcor, but the food is to die for. These burgers have got some kind of magical sauce going on inside them. You must try. #Tbt #Retro

And, if you’re ever up for a bit of a drive, definitely check out the Igloo Roadhouse in Buxton, for a try of the famous Buxton burger!

So there it is! Have I missed any??
