Summary

A french restaurant that is dedicated to (and worships), meat in all its glory. Served only at lunch, we are offered a Wagyu Beef burger consisting of apple smoked bacon, vintage cheddar, pomme frites and a side of salad. With French trained chefs, French waiters, French beer and wine, and Parisian decor, all that is left to say is… “Bon Appetit”.

Comments
“The French really have impressed us with this simple burger. With just the bare minimum of ingredients, this Wagyu beef burger makes your taste buds dance with delight thanks to its vintage aged cheese and apple smoked bacon. A perfect bun, spread with a distinctive herbed/garlic butter really shows that when it comes to burgers, the word ‘Traditional’ can really take on a different meaning.”
“A large window encourages diners to peek into the kitchen. This really shows the confidence they have in their cooking skills.. I wasn’t dissapointed. The soft and juicy beef, bacon and cheese contrasted perfectly with the crunch of the baguette style bun; a flawless combination. Amazing fries.”
“C’était magnifique. Who would have thought Les Français could nail a burger so well and so simply. One of the simplest gourmet and best value for money burgers I have had the pleasure of experiencing so far. The herb/garlic butter, medium thickness Wagyu beef pattie, and bacon (not crispy but very tasty), were all well represented and contributed beautifully to the burger. The sharpness and oozing texture of the aged cheese was the biggest stand out for me. The burger didn’t have sauce, but didn’t need it. Chips were great too.”
“Like a revolution brewing in my mouth, sharp and peppery undertones ran wild. Every bite I took, the burger bit back. However, the key conspirator in this case was an aristocratic aged cheddar. It was teamed with an excellent Wagyu beef pattie and a refined piece of bacon, lying on a baguette-like bun with a smear of intoxicating garlic butter. A burger fit for the history books.”

*Unfortunately this fine establishment has since closed and moved on to greener pastures. For those lucky enough to have enjoyed the experience… feel free to brag.

Summary

Unchanged since 1955, Danny’s Burgers has held it’s North Fitzroy reputation as a family business that caters to the masses with its nostalgic home-style burgers. Judging from the exterior, you can’t help but anticipate a messy burger experience. However, this was not the case. The service was great and the diner style bar and stools brought back a certain romance that only the 1950’s could deliver.

Comments
“A neatly constructed burger that doesn’t offer anything you wouldn’t expect. Fairly traditional ingredients with the option of adding cheese (I would recommend the double cheese) that sits on top of the egg almost giving it that breakfast feel. I could only suggest adding a second pattie, or if you think you can.. a third.”
“It starts off with a foursome of Butter, Egg, Mayo and Cheese, and continues to get even better and messier with the sweet onions, which are bashed into, and lovingly embracing the beef. Felt like an amateur when 2 locals walked in and ordered the Triple Lot Burger. However, looking forward to returning and ordering it myself.”
“All the aspects of the burger were in proportion. A nice juicy beef pattie, toasted buns (with butter), double cheese (a must), and a perfectly cooked semi-runny egg. It’s a slightly smaller burger compared to the other ones you would get form other burger shops, but still filling. The chips were good but nothing special. CAUTION. They cut your burger in half as part of the service, so tell them upon ordering if you don’t want that done.”
“Wow. I’m impressed. This is a quality burger: the beef holds a humble spice, the cheese is so creamy it sticks to the roof of your mouth like peanut butter and the eggs are cooked with each order, left a little runny, the way they ought to be. Will be back pronto to triple the fun.”
