We love them as much as the next person so we decided to put together this list in order of places you need to try out. Here are the top burger joints in Melbourne:

10. Rockpool Bar & Grill

Don’t come here unless you’re going to order their famous Wagyu Hamburger. Come in anticipation of a bit of a queue – Rockpool is so popular every day of the week. Their service top class and the atmopshere pretty unrivalled. Wash down your burger with a cold beer or cocktail.

If you’re in the market for a big, juicy burger you’ll find it in the Merrywell – order the Oz Burger. Their prices may be on the more expensive side of things but you’ll get an all-round great experience that’ll leave your body (stomach) and mind totally satisfied. If you come here during the week, you’ll find yourselves surrounded by city workers and casino-goers. Lovely modern kit-out here too – think fine dining rather than American diner.

8bit do a super burger. They’ve really nailed the science of a burger – the size and ratio is perrrrfect. Not too big, not too small, juuust right. Goldilocks would be their number one fan. Come here hungry and add the salted caramel shake to your order. Do it.

2. Huxtaburger

1. Rockwell & Son’s

Number one for a reason… Rockwell & Son’s offers a diner meets bar meets fine dining feel when you walk in – we’re not quite sure what that is but there’s certainly something very special about the ambience here. All the produce has been locally sourced, making it super-high quality and fabulously fresh. Double Smash Patty Burger is simply the best thing you will eat in Melbourne. Great pride is taken in presentation and you’ll notice the staff have amazing energy and all these elements shine through!
