There’s something about warm, soft, juicy burger that makes life instantly better. The way it feels in your hands (put the knife and fork down you sociopath), the slightly drippy sauce, the delicate rise of the steam as you raise it towards your welcoming mouth…
If you’ve got a burger craving that needs satisfying, try these guys. Salivation guaranteed.
Got a burger craving you’re trying to kick? Look no further than Betty’s Burgers and Concrete Co. Where juicy patties, perfectly melted cheese and tasty sauces reign supreme. An extraordinary simple menu, our pick is Betty’s Classic with a side of french fries and sriracha mayo. Oh, and if you were wondering what ‘concrete’ refers to, only a rich and creamy custard ice-cream that Betty likes to whip up in her spare time. We suggest the Cookie Butter – vanilla frozen custard, crumbed Biscoff cookies, cookie butter and cinnamon sugar. You can thank us later.
A combination of their Classic and Shroom burger, Betty’s brings you Angus beef and crispy fried mushroom patty with melted Gouda and Gruyere cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and never forget, Betty’s special sauce.

They’re one of the originals and they own taste. They’ve been in the game for decades and their burgers are so meticulously refined, that once you’ve eaten one you’ll question how you missed out on such well crafted patty for so long. Huxtaburger have dropped the clutch on the flavour highway, leaving a pile of greasy napkins in their wake.

Do’s – M.Y.O burger and choose from an intense selection of add-ons. These guys welcome serious DIYers. Order the fiery BBQ basted ribs and wings. Throw in some onion rings, mac ‘n’ cheese pucks and don’t forget the french fries with Rocomayo. Oh, and a chocolate thickshake to top it off, that’s a no-brainer.
Don’ts – Wear white. First date? This meal cannot be eaten gracefully (sauce will go everywhere).

American style burgers that are extraordinarily simple. The same combo is repeated with a few extras added for those who like their burgers with all the trimmings. Our pick? The Chicken Burger. Crispy fried chicken, slaw, pickles, tomato, cheese & chipotle. Throw some onion rings on the side for a little extra something something. The 4.2 star google rating ain’t wrong, Parlour Diner is damn satisfying.

Fun, quirky and obviously a little social media obsessed, #burgerlove give a few burger joints a run for their cheddar! While the menu is packed burgs that sound down right delicious, we’re not too sure about the #DEATH BY CHOCOLATE. Beef patty, American cheddar, bacon, Heartstarter. XXX BBQ sauce and NUTELLA. Cray.

The story of California Burgers starts in 2002, when founder Theo Tzavaras ventured to Los Angeles for the first time. Theo experienced his first American burger at an iconic burger restaurant in LA, and from that moment on, he was hooked. Every beef patty is handmade and hand-smashed for each burger. It doesn’t get much better than this people.
