    I live a couple of minutes from there, i am in love with the Clucky Cow burger, a friend of mine tried the Gorilla also.

    Once the sauce coats the meats, the burger is so damn tasty.

    I think I've found my favorite burger in Melbourne, and it's in a completely unexpected, bizarre location.

    In the food court at DFO Essendon is a very dodgy looking burger store. One of the burgers they serve is the Malibu burger. But it's the way the meat is cooked that makes it perfect.

    Usually "Malibu" burgers have pineapple, which in my opinion has NO place in a burger (much like on pizza)

    I love a bit of pineapple fried off in bacon fat... sweet and salty are a match made in heaven.

    My recent burgerventures.

    I went back to Burger Business and tried their Aussie burger.
    Real burgers have beetroot

    The vegetation was very fresh and the pattie was juicy without being undercooked.

    Double D in Springvale.

    I had the chicken burger. Mouth-meltingly juicy. The honey cheese chips were damn tasty, too.

    Not a burger place, but Gingerboy had these pork bao burgers as an entree, and they were awesome.

    last time i was here, they were telling me that they sous-vide the potato, and then they deep fry them a couple of times to make them so damned tasty

    Any Burger lovers or Meat lovers need to go to Dexter in Preston.

    Has almost a perfect rating on Zomato, for good reason.

    I got there for the beef brisket main. But the Burgers are also amazing. Brisket burgers, pulled pork etc. My wife and I still visit despite living 40k's away now.

    Make sure to book a day in advance, because this place is always packed out. Even on a weeknight.

    Agree with this on so many levels - their meat donuts are to die for! Gotta get back there as they also have a pizza by the slice place across the road that's apparently awesome too! :thumbup:

    When to "the Famished Wolf" in Braeside today for lunch, was a real nice burger, could have been better but that wasn't their fault it was the 20min drive back to work before i could eat it.

    Will vouch for Demazzi's, Cool Bean and Dribbles.
    There's a couple of other standards on there that most will already know about and have their own opinion. But these three above aren't always featured on these lists and are very good, especially Cool Bean and Dribbles.

    I was very surprised at how good the burgers were at Urban Groove in Frankston.

    I love this burger, every time!

    I finally made a visit to Burgerlove in South Melbourne a few weeks ago and i have to say their burgers are extremely tasty also. I had the Meataxe.

    I had a decent burger at NĂ’STIMO & CO in Elsternwick today. It was a chicken burger but OMFG. Southern PB burger. A southern fried fillet, bacon, onion rings, jalepenos and peanut butter. I mean loaded with peanut butter. It was so good.

    They also have some oddball items that I didn't try, fries with nutella, shakes with fries poking out the top.

    Worth checking out i reckon.

    I got a delivery from Big Kahuna burger last night.

    I got the Big Kahuna - it was a no-BS good burger. A little bit of pink in the patty - and a soft fluffy white bun.

    I also got a side of spicy chicken wings - they were really nice, too!

    My issue is that there are no cheap sides for when you are eating alone - the chips were like $8...
