Although the sign outside that reads Time Out’s best burger’ is a little misleading (we gave them a best newcomer tag in a budget burger round-up in 2011), we can’t quibble with the quality of their offerings. This ever-popular American sports bar serves its most popular variety split over two springy, lightly toasted sesame-seed buns slathered in the house mix of mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise. Though messy to disassemble, it’s a worthwhile bite.
A juicy, crumbly chargrilled patty of imported Australian beef (ground in-house and served medium unless you request otherwise), topped with sweet caramelised onion and blow-your-head-off blue cheese sits on one half; a stack of lettuce, tomato, streaky bacon strips and nicely ripe avocado on the other. Another burger best ordered on a Monday, when the price includes a free pint of Stella Artois lager.
