Would we recommend:

Part owner and celebrity chef Ian Hewitson, creates a gastro-pub that is about as casual and laid back as it gets in the Melbourne restaurant scene. With a modern take on the classic Australian hamburger, highlights include an extra large beef pattie, a tomato and onion chutney that sticks to the top bun, and a beetroot relish that makes love to the bottom bun. Treat yourself by adding french fries with spicy ketchup. These guys don’t take bookings, but head on in, and their extremely friendly staff will help you out.

“A unique burger with some unique ingredients that offers a pleasantly sweet taste. Maybe a little too sweet without a side of chips. A thick, well seasoned pattie that was cooked to perfection and oozed juicy goodness. All ingredients were well balanced, but I’d suggest a little less tomato and onion chutney and a touch more mayo.”
“An explosion of flavour from the get-go (even after removing most of both relishes). The beef has a really nice spice which balanced out the sweetness of the rest of the burger. At first I was confused to find mayo underneath the burger bun, however one of the really friendly staff informed us it was to stop the burger slipping off the plate. That is how a true burger aficionado thinks, aka Huey. I’m sure he would be devastated at the thought of a burger on the floor.”
“The burger had one of the thickest patties I have ever seen and was cooked to perfection. All ingredients were great. I especially like the chutney and the addition of the beetroot relish. However, next time I would like to try it without the beetroot. I felt that it made the burger a lot sweeter than it had to be. With the last bite staring me in the face, I had to compose myself, take a breath, and power through. Make sure you go with a good appetite. Shoe string fries were very good.”
“Tip number one… Don’t wear a white shirt unless you really like the artwork of Jackson Pollock. Tip number two… Eat the burger right above your fries. Tip three… Enjoy your fries, now covered in a sweet and zesty burger sauce.”
