I knew I’d enjoy eating here when after I made payment the worker, Jack, went into the back and washed his hands before touching anything. Something as little as that would make me come back for sure!

Customer's Review:

Great burgers. I usually order Burgers Anonymous’s chicken burgers but decided to try their cheeseburger (pictured). It came as a meal with a drink and fries. The burger patty was nice and thick, bun was soft and included lots of delicious cheese oozing out of the bun.

The Five Points restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia, is inspired by New York City. Push through the long queues at this well-known spot to get a selection of burgers representing the five boroughs of New York City – The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, and Queens. The Queens chicken is one of several reasons to visit North Sydney.

Key Differentiators:

  • Unassuming counter-serve restaurant 

Customer's Review:

Great burger joint tucked away in the corner of north Sydney. The prices are reasonable and so too are the waiting times. The burgers are amazing there and I had a mouth-watering moment just looking at the menu. I got the Brooklyn burger and thought it was spectacular. The staff are also very helpful to provide their recommendations if you’re unsure of what to get.

One of the most iconic burger joints in Sydney CBD, and for a reason. The burgers are just so delicious! They have classics but also specials each week. I usually go for Mr Truffle, can't go wrong with that! Onion rings are great as well. The good thing is that you can also enjoy great beers with your food here. Gets really busy though so you may need to queue for a bit.

Sunset Diner is a pink Miami Vice-inspired restaurant on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Ben Varela, executive chef and owner of Sunset Diner, intended it to be a place that resembled his vision for a dream Miami restaurant. This joint has one of the greatest burgers in Sydney, as well as an outdoor pet-friendly courtyard with the same pink atmosphere you'll find inside! The menu consists of standard choices such as "The Double" and various shakes, including the Classic Cookie Dough, which is too delicious to pass up.

  • Pet-friendly
  • Reasonable prices
  • Miami-inspired casual diner

Customer's Review:

Great menu, amazing burgers! Price is very reasonable for the quality you get! Great vegan options and super cute outdoor (and indoor) seatings. They also have Uno cards which is a great addition to dining in and hanging out with mates with some good food. Very clean facility and super impressed with the beautiful restroom. Can't wait to be back in the area again!

Mary's charm is enhanced by loud, vibrant music, strong drinks, dim lighting, and graffiti. It's a boisterous chain that now operates in multiple locations throughout Sydney. The CBD's Castlereagh Street stop is a tiny take-away shop. You'll want to linger at any of the other Mary's restaurants long after the benches have been cleared since you'll be wanting to repeat your meal.

Key Differentiators:

  • Rustic bar with timber decor
  • Amazing atmospher
  • A mezzanine and a rock 'n' roll vibe

Customer's Review:

This place is one of its own kind. Hard to locate as from the outside it looks like an abandoned house (video posted). But as you enter, the place turns into a nasty vibe. Full on a grungy look with graffiti on every inch of the place. Surprisingly the meat is halal. Had Mary's Classic burger with Half Bird. The burger was delicious however fried chicken was okay as it was over-fried. All in all, a very good experience.

This is the place for you if you're searching for a high-quality feed without all the frills. Classic burger is a semi-fast food restaurant that serves better quality food and service than your average party. This Liverpool establishment creates a pleasant and relaxing ambience in which to enjoy one of Sydney's greatest burgers. The goal of this local pub is straightforward: use locally sourced high-quality ingredients and prepare them freshly made to order. If you're searching for In N Out alternatives, this would be the closest thing to it in Sydney.

Key Differentiators:

  • Straightforward restaurant
  • With a low-key ambience
  • Dishing up fast-food standards

Customer's Review:

Came late with a large group and we were all very impressed with the food. The chips were nice, burgers were good but the coleslaw was average. The only let down would come down to the service of the Asian waitress who was a little hard to understand and when she placed food on to our tables, she would just toss/slide it on. Besides that, would come again for the other food and drinks.

This burger place in Sydney will put you into a food coma - some might even call it a 'hibernation'. The classics are all there, including the cheeseburger and chicken burger, but options such as the 'Hell Boy' with house chilli sauce might pick your fancy. It doesn't matter which choice you go for - they're all more than enough to feed.

Key Differentiators:

  • Served fresh and hot
  • Unique burger toppings
  • Friendly helpful staff

Customer's Review:

It's not a fluke. These guys nail it every single time! After many great burgers, I finally had the NASH and it's a perfect medley of flavours. Really missing the Texan loaded chips with the pulled brisket, but the other loaded chips are great as well. Definitely keeps me coming back!

We'll take you on a journey from the host of hearty beef patties to something a little less conventional with us. The Bar UME sibling is located on Barangaroo's Wulugul waterfront walkway, and the view is just as excellent as the burgers themselves. With a tiled roof and plenty of character, this charming cafe offers magnificent views over Surry Hills. The classic UME Burger is fantastic, with its own Wagyu mine sauce-marinated beef patty.

Key Differentiators:

  • Head Chef Kerby Craig
  • Phenomenal UME Burger with Wagyu mine sauce
  • Stunning waterfront location at Barangaroo

Customer's Review:

Nice location along the river in a food court-like strip (although a fancy one). The staff were friendly, food was quick to come out and the burger was tasty. I also got a warm Yuzu drink that was also enjoyable. The menu is Japanese inspired. Recommended if you like burgers.

Chebbo is a well-known figure in Sydney's burger scene. People travel long distances to try his smashed burgers, and he's self-appointed CEO of burgers on TikTok. He may claim that title, but he has made a name for himself in Sydney and beyond thanks to his delectable menu options. The fried onion, merely sounds like something straightforward? But it really tastes fantastic that you'll want to get some more. Visit Chebbo's Instagram to see what new dish he's planning next.

Not all burgers are made equally, as we all know. Now that you've seen our list of the best burgers in Sydney, you can't go wrong. Burger Patch is an excellent example to illustrate our point. This restaurant only employs the highest quality ingredients and their patties are entirely composed of Australian beef with no additions. They grind their meat finely to provide a savory textured burger that will have you coming back for more. Like any great burger spot, they offer their own unique sauce. The Angry American, a must-try, features the spicy homemade chili alongside the housemade chile sauce.

Key Differentiators:

  • Fresh quality ingredients
  • Signature sauce
  • Delicious meaty texture 

Customer's Review:

My current favourite burger place. As others have said, genuinely friendly service. Had an Angry American with bacon, a perfect burger, and perfect chips. Hard to spot from the street as it's tucked in from the bus stops on the corner of Victoria Ave & Katherine St.

Love at first bite – that's what you'll feel when you try one of Sydney's best burgers from Out of the Blue. This family-owned and operated east gem is well-known for their use of only locally sourced ingredients in each handmade burger. You can order any type of burger on the menu, but it might be better to try one of their house specials instead. And although there are a limited number seats inside, most customers prefer this takeaway joint so they can picnic with an unforgettable view down by Cloey carpark. Just remember: Out of The Blue is cash-only... but I promise she's worth it!

Key Differentiators:

  • Friendly staff
  • Tiny, bustling takeaway joint for burgers
  • Classic fish ’n’ chips and deep-fried Mars Bars

Customer's Review:

Went around 12pm and was surprised there was no queue. Friendly staff. The hoki fish was firm and lightly battered, and tasted really good. Fries tasted amazing with the chicken salt, and the portion is generous for the price. Will definitely visit again.

Customer's Review:

The milk bar were proud to announce they had the best chips in Sydney as i walked in. The coating they put on it tasted sweet however it retained a lot of oil. I ordered the original milk bar burger overall it wasn't too bad nor certain if they have the best chips I've eaten. The bright funky burger joint is decorated with graffiti and chalk menus. It seems to be a popular place to eat as I saw a lot of take away orders come through.

It's all about hot chicken at this location. "If you know, you know" is how I'd describe it. It's tucked away just north of Blacktown, but trust us when we say that once you've tasted the fried chicken here, you'll be back again. There are only a few burger options on the menu, but they're all fantastic in their own way. Cheesy BBQ, Nashville Hot Chicken, or the crowd favorite, Buffalo Blue Cheese made with 12-hour-brined tenderloins basted in buffalo sauce and topped with blue cheese sauce and blue cheese crumble are some of the other options.

Best burgers out west with delicious beef paddies, or fried chicken, they have your standard burger options and more fancy versions. Pictured with this review is a weekly special which involves truffle. The portion sizes of the chips are quite generous and there are a few different sauces you can purchase that will go with the fries.

Fantastic American tavern with to-die-for wings and melt-in-your-mouth brisket, bbq, and burgers. American husband was skeptical but rates it 5 stars. Trivia and free arcade games upstairs kept us entertained after dinner. Top-notch service especially Tyson who was super friendly and made us feel super welcome. Can’t wait to come back again and again, especially for the bottomless bbq! Super fun Tuesday night.

Big juicy burger - is all I have to say. Also! There has to be something with the regular fries. They are incredibly addictive and tasty. I highly recommended.

Great service and food was delicious. We had the little platter and everything on it was flavourful, not dry, and well seasoned. We also had an extra large fries and onion rings which were surprisingly light and that seasoning salt was perfect. My wife isn’t big on barbecue sauce but loved the one they had. Great experience and will be coming back.

Upon opening Butter's original Surry Hills outpost in 2016, chef Julian Cincotta had a clear vision: to blend key ingredients including hip-hop, sneakers, fancy champagne, and fried chicken. The latter item is now widely recognized as some of the best in town - sitting so beautifully between two burger buns that it'll make you tear up a little bit!

Key Differentiators:

  • Well-seasoned and cooked 
  • Serves cocktails and chicken
  • Superior quality

Customer's Review:

Got takeaway from here during lockdown. Burgers are really excellent (got the OG with Coleslaw and cheese), however the tenders were a little peppery and the chicken wings were slightly disappointing (with the skin separating from the deep fried coating). The hot sauce is also only okay. Overall though, would definitely order again when needing a solid burger fix.

Really good customer service for a busy fish and chip, there is some seating available but as it gets busy the staff suggested to go to the nearby beach and get takeaway. Food was absolutely delicious with a selection of sustainable sea food and gourmet salads. Also good selection of drinks too.

The famous simplicity of the American cheeseburger is what made it popular.

Key Differentiators:

  • Counter service
  • Special sauce between a soft milk bun
  • A surfy cool vibe

The popular food truck has established itself in its own location. You won't have to wait any longer for the famous American-style burgers, mac'n'cheese balls, or cheeseburger spring rolls to appear. Baby Rey's prides itself on its ability to serve not only healthy American-style burgers, but also more indulgent options.

Smoky Sue's is all about low and slow American-style BBQ, in the first place. The Maroubra restaurant takes barbecuing seriously, and one of their meat boxes with protein options like brisket, fried chicken, pork belly, or pulled pork and hearty sides like brisket beans and mac n' cheese bombs is never a bad option.

Probably one of my favourite burgers of the year. It was so juicy and full of flavour. I love their burger of the month creations!! Comes with fries too and is super affordable.

The burger is very delicious and fat, the fries are also very good. The drinks are unlimited and you can refill them inside which is great! The price might be a little bit high but it's quite worth it. I hope they come up with a bundle or package in the future.
