    Slightly high I guess. Normally we would pay around $50 for a meal + pint, unless there was a particular lunch special/deal on.

    Somewhere like the Austral does burger/chips + pint for $18 iirc.

    We've been getting Bad Boy Burger Bar on Grange Road for work lunches once a fortnight, they aren't too bad. We are gonna try burger foundry on Henley Beach Road next.

    Also I drive past it every day but haven't tried Burger Boss on Marion Road yet. Anyone tried it?

    If it's anything like the Magil Rd original* then it'll be great.

    *Technically it's not their 1st store having moved a few doors down a little while back.

    They are just around the corner from me, I've been meaning to after seeing their facebook page and they do look good. They seem to run out of ingredients often though and shut up shop.

    I still enjoy Chuckwagon for the overall experience, I take my nephew when I can and he goes ape. Loves the Batman and Captain America mannequins (the batman one as actually a female mannequin!)

    They are a bit more than just burgers though, it's more of an American diner experience with burgers, hot dogs, wings, milkshakes etc.

    Yeah - that's what put me off. Also the tiny serving sizes + the attitude of the staff (I guess the chef thought we were there to see him rather than eat his food).

    So I started going to Burgerstronomy instead.

    burger boss has a very small selection of types of burger ( think just a basic cheeseburger type). it does not compare to bad boy.

    Kitchen or serving staff attitude is a recipe for fail.

    Good, but I find the patty a little underwhelming.

    Good meat flavour, but lacks a nice caramelized crust, and a little too meaty maybe - lacking a little subtlety.

    Just tried McDonald's "Create Your Taste", I won't be rushing back, but it was OK.

    I built a double-patty w: jack cheese, bacon, chilli jam, and guacamole; in the brioche bun. It cost $13.

    They need to refine the touch-screen interface (scrolling was a PITA), the table service was fine (but not sure how they'll cope when busy), and the burgers probably need to be 10-20% cheaper to represent good value IMO.

    I dont consider it the best burger but a notable mention to burger addiction's 'shotgun wedding' down in rundle place food court. Nice chilli sauce and chipotle aioli. A good option for a CBD worker who cant be fucked going to the east end or sitting on the ground in a park eating food truck fare. It's my go-to cheat lunch for the week.

    I know you guys like those monsterous tower pub eating-challenge burgers, if that's what you want then probably give it a miss, but i far prefer NY-style which doesnt need a knife or a skewer to hold it together.

    Harsh to generalize like that bro!

    And they're the original owners of Burger Foundry, I think...

    The patties are still McDonalds patties, which kind of kills it.

    They're not bad, but they're not gourmet.
