The 10 Best Burgers in North Brisbane

May 30, 2017

"We’ve got a burger quest of momentous proportions ahead of us."

Us Queenslanders know a good burger when we see one, and with the opening of Westfield Chermside’s new dining precinct, we’ve got a burger quest of momentous proportions ahead of us. Here are our picks of the best burgers in North Brisbane.

The Crispy Chicken at Betty’s Burgers

The Crispy Chicken at Betty’s Burgers is everything you’d hope an American-style burger would be. With crispy Southern fried chicken, lettuce, tomato and Betty’s elusive special sauce on a sweet brioche bun, this burger is simple but perfect. Wash it down with a chocolate thick shake and you’ll be one happy chappy.

The Big Boy Burger at Tapworks Bar & Grill

Tapworks Bar & Grill are bringing some seriously mean bar food to accompany their 30 taps of craft beer. Included in their impressive new menu is the big boy burger, which, as its name suggests, is really quite big. It features wagyu beef, chilli con carne, cheddar, salad, pickles and onion rings – we’ve never seen anything like it before.

The Sliders at Beach House Bar & Grill

The sliders at Beach House Bar & Grill give you the best of everything, and are perfect for the individual who can’t make up their mind. Opt for these brioche mini-burgers and you’ll get a pulled pork & coleslaw slider, one with lamb & tzatziki and another with beef & barbecue sauce. Perfect as a meal for one or a share plate between friends.

The Field of Dreams at Grill’d

Grill’d has been a burger powerhouse for years now, and there are a few items on the menu that they’ve unquestionably perfected. The Field of Dreams is a vegetarian burger, but it’ll make any meat-lover happy too. The star of this burger is its patty-sized grilled mushroom, elevated by roasted peppers, basil pesto and tasty cheese. This is one healthy burger that still tastes amazing.

The Buffalo Chicken at The Sporting Globe

For something a little different, grab the buffalo chicken burger at The Sporting Globe. This burger is served on one of the charcoal brioche buns you’ve probably seen take over your Instagram feed, and comes with some classic American burger fillings. Crispy chicken tossed in buffalo sauce, coleslaw, pickles, onion rings and ranch dressing make this burger a winner.

The Big Boppa at Burger Urge

The Big Boppa from Burger Urge is a hearty beef burger, full of all kinds of mouth-watering goodness. This one features some Queensland favourites like pineapple, beetroot and free-range egg as well as your usual burger fare. It most definitely packs a punch and requires one very hungry soldier to finish.

The Chick’n’Hummus Burger at Nando’s

The Chick’n’Hummus burger encompasses everything we love about Nando’s – perfectly grilled chicken with authentic accompaniments. This burger is filled with tabouli and quinoa salad, red peppers, creamy hummus and grilled chicken breast on a soft Portuguese roll.

The Soft Shell Crab at Motto Motto

Although not technically a burger, the soft shell crab roll at Motto Motto is still well-deserving of a mention. With crispy green salad, onion, tomato, pickled cucumber, sweet chili and shisho mayo, this one is a lighter alternative to a meaty burger. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can add fries with seaweed salt to your meal – a Japanese twist that’s a specialty for Motto Motto.

The Classic Cheeseburger at McDonald’s

Could a burger list really be written without McDonald’s? We think not. For a no-fuss burger reminiscent of euphoric childhood trips to Maccas, you can’t go past their classic cheeseburger.

The Chicken Schnitzel Burger at The Bavarian

As the younger brother of Bavarian Bier Café, The Bavarian brings to Chermside a wealth of knowledge about Bavarian classics like schnitzel. So, you can be confident that you’re getting the best of the best with their schnitzel, pickled cucumber, jalapeno and sesame aioli burger.
