Best Burgers in Sydney

  31 December 2016

So I was going to do my usual round-up of my fave eats of the year and I was looking at my photos and daaaamn I ate a lot of burgers haha so I’ve decided to do a list of all the burgers in Sydney! I’m not gonna rate or score them, but pretty much every burger listed below I would happily eat. Ready? OKAY!

Bang Bang
Come for the burgs, stay for the tunez. New burger creations specials every week.
113 Reservoir St, Surry Hills
Bare Grills
Fat, juicy patties and gotta love that trademark branding on the buns.
Shop 15 / 425 Bourke St, Surry Hills
Bar Luca
The Blame Canada burger is my unicorn burger! It’s roll your eyes to the heavens delicious, ridiculously saucy and has the added bonus of poutine fries shoved in.
52 Phillip Street, Sydney
Bella Shack
The food truck is parked outside Bella Vista Hotel, enjoy your juicy burg in the courtyard with a beverage or two.
13-15 Lexington Dr, Bella Vista
Belly Bao
Ahhh the Baoger, the hybrid Taiwanese bao crossed with a burger surprisingly works and is in my top 5 fave burgers. The bao buns holds up against the juicy fillings and you just GOTTA add in a hashbrown for that crunch!
Hudson Ballroom, 53-55 Liverpool St, Sydney
Bovine and Swine
Technically they call this a sandwich but well, I reckon the brisket sandwich makes the list! If you haven’t had the brisket here before you just haven’t lived! Oh and order the beef short rib and share between 3!
92 Enmore Rd, Newtown
Brooklyn Depot
The burger of the month is guaranteed to be one cray cray concoction with many forms of animals stuffed into a burger.
65 Holt St, Surry Hills

Many sneer at this chain of burgs but well it’s good for a quick feed and the patties are made in house daily with beef sourced from Cape Grim Tasmania.
Shop 11.06, World Square 644 George Street, Sydney

burgersanonBurgers Anonymous
This burg shop has mighty stiff competition, located across from BL Burgers and just up the road from Guilty. But the bacon here is da bomb!
80 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst
burgersbyjoshBurgers By Josh
Burgers by Josh popped up at various locations in 2016 and have now set up permanent digs at the Annandale Hotel.
Annandale Hotel, 17 Parramatta Rd, Annandale
Butter’s fried chicken is off the chain but you gotta try their burg with a generous slather of dashi butter! Check out the sneaker display too.
6 Hunt St, Surry Hills
cafeishCafe Ish
Josh is pumping out classic milkbar burgs, crispy fries and ice cold milkshakes.
105 Regent St, Redfern
chickennsonsChicken & Sons
As well as wood smoked chicken, Chicken & Sons also does pretty damn tasty burgs and all come with a side of golden fries.
228 Victoria Ave, Chatswood
Chur is Kiwi slang for delicious, my fave is the grilled beef with blue cheese and onion rings.
48 Albion St, Surry Hills
coogeepavCoogee Pavilion
The cheese burg is simple but tasty, I particularly like the steamed and then grilled bun.
169 Dolphin St, Coogee
downnoutDown N’ Out
Originally a month long popup, this joint hit the big time with their burger of the week crazy concoctions and had Sydney in a frenzy with their Pokemon burgers.
Sir John Young Hotel, 557 George St, Sydney
fivepointsFive Points Burgers
Go for The Bronx burg with a grilled beef pattie, double cheese, pickles and bacon.
124 Walker St, North Sydney
Surprisingly a massive hit with me, sheets of crispy rice replace the burger buns and I absolutely loved the miso salmon sushi burger!
The Star, 80 Pyrmont St, Pyrmont
Guilty’s Rowdy Double Jeopardy burg is my second fave cheeseburg in Sydney with crisp bacon and a spicy kick from the jalapenos. It’s not massive so I could probably eat a burger a day and not feel like dying πŸ˜›
248 Palmer St, Darlinghurst
Ok technically this guy shouldn’t be in the list because Hoost have stopped brunch service and not selling this burger but daaaamn it was good! Look at that river of molten smoked cheese!
98 Fitzroy St, Surry Hills
The steak frites and the fried cheese Malakoff at Hubert make me weak at the knees but little known fact, they also have one smashingly delicious burger on the menu!
15 Bligh Street, Sydney
Jacks burgs are on the small side so they’re good for a snack if you’re in the Newtown area, I particularly love the crinkle cut fries!
170 Missenden Road, Newtown
juicylucyJuicy Lucy
Ahhhh Juicy Lucy is my number one favourite chicken burger in Sydney! I looked at my uber eats history and basically I averaged one burger a week haha oops but the batter is always so crispy and the chicken is extremely juicy, suh good!
232A Elizabeth St, Surry Hills
kansascityshuffleKansas City Shuffle
The fried chicken sandwich on a donut bun is pretty killer, love the slaw.
195 Gloucester St, The Rocks
Cheeseburgers can be a lil squishy but the smoked bacon is amazing and you gotta get the mash and gravy for your fries! The fried chicken burg from their CBD location is a winner too.
6 Mary Street, Newtown
mistergeeMr Gee Burger Truck
The Truffe! Each week I wait to see if the Truffe Burger is making the rotation because their truffle aioli is friggen bomb!
315 Parramatta Rd, Haberfield
papichuloPapi Chulo
I have yet to try the fish or the chicken burgs here because I can never resist the cheeseburger! I mean look at it! How it calls to me! Along with a side of brisket kthnxbai.
22-23 Manly Wharf, East Esplanade, Manly
plkPub Life Kitchen
PLK is my happy place, burgs always comes with a mountain of fries and I would like to swim in their gravy.
Lord Wolseley Hotel, 265 Bulwara Road, Ultimo
ribsnburgersRibs & Burgers
I usually get the lamb ribs here but the Old School cheeseburger gets the thumbs up.
88 George Street, Sydney
rockpoolRockpool Bar & Grill
Before the influx of burgs in Syd there was the Rockpool burg. With Gruyere cheese and a brioche bun it’s not a bad burg but I prefer American cheeseburgers now.
66 Hunter St, Sydney
royalstacksRoyal Stacks
The Double Stack is good but I love the Miss Elizabeth with truffle mayo! Oh and do yourself a favour and get a milkshake aka a frozen custard.
Westfield Chatswood, 357/1 Anderson St, Chatswood
umeBar Ume
The Ebi prawn burger is crazy good but I’m also swayed by the signature Ume burger with wagyu mince sauce.
478 Bourke Street, Surry Hills
fishshopThe Fish Shop
Dan Hong’s cheeseburger was so famed and delicious that it survived the closure of Lotus and is available at The Fish Shop.
22 Challis Ave, Potts Point
lordgladstoneThe Lord Gladstone
$10 burgs on Mon and Tues is a winner with the locals, the fried chicken burger is a winner too.
115 Regent St, Chippendale
thetuckshopThe Tuckshop
My fave burger out west, The Tuckshops cheeseburg hits all the right notes and the fries are crazy addictive.
78 Glenhaven Rd, Glenhaven
pickleZe Pickle
Popular with the after work crowd, I always lol when the burg arrives with a giant pickle stabbed in the middle.
