This Guide to the Best Burgers in Perth will preach to the choir of burger lovers, but there are a few new kids on the block you should not overlook; the best of friends start as strangers anyway. Whether it is a part of your hangover ritual or a take-out night tradition, here is The Munch’s pick for the Best Burgers in Perth.
Ordering a burger, (usually) you aren’t concerned with the consequence of how you may feel post feed – it’s all worth it for the cheesy, juicy, bready bite. Often the sign of the best burger is you don’t feel the picture of health following. Hoodburger is dangerously close by for this type of self-sabotage, with locations in Northbridge, Inglewood and Ardross. Perhaps it’s the mammoth $5 fry serving you finish alone or the hangover lurking underneath the double cheeseburger deluxe with bacon. Mistakes make you stronger.
You always appreciate a chicken burger addition to the menu, but what we admire most is a dedication to the craft. This Mt Hawthorn establishment remains true to its Nashville hot chicken roots, but all ingredients (including beverages sold, chicken cooked, oil and sauces) are all locally sourced. Choose your level of hotness on their Signature Sando, ft. house-made pickles, hot sauces and relishes. There is a gluten-free and vegan take on the Signature Sando, so no one misses out!
Half the fun is the chase, visiting several times, getting food envy until you find your favourite burger. And by then, you’re one of the regulars. For feel-good, family hospitality vibes, Christos in Lansdale is ready to host you. Take a journey through their (in)famous Smash Burger patties, then make your way through their signature seasoned fried chicken range. Their easy add-ons and combo options are too good to turn down, soak up the diner-esk interior and add one of their thicc or loaded shakes while you’re at it.
If you’re in the mood to make a night of it with cocktails and insane desserts, head along to Milky Lane at Elizabeth Quay. With an A+ dining atmosphere (as long as you like hip hop and RnB beats), Milky Lane claims to have the best burger in Perth. Whilst we cannot confirm or deny this claim, let’s just say it’s vital on your quest for the best burger in Perth to pay them a visit. Boasting a prodigious range of burgers, desserts and sides, check it out after your last round of work drinks.
Curtin University graduates will be reminded of all-nighters and severe bouts of procrastination with a trip to Varsity. Luckily they have multiple locations across Joondalup, Northbridge and Morley, so you can pretend you don’t know this fine establishment inside and out. Our student staple left a permanent mark on our hearts at Waterford Plaza with more than just their burgers. It was our chill local when watching the match on the telly didn’t cut it. Their range is tried and tested, with vegos and vegan tag alongs always catered for.
For a burger that won’t have you withering in self-regret, Meet and Bun serves their mouth-watering patties cooked to medium rare perfection – as it should be. It’s not just their burger loyalty card that keeps us going back for more, we can’t forget the flavour-filled mouthfuls (shout out to their vegan version too) whenever driving through Mount Lawley. Don’t fret city slickers, you can find their brioche bun and smokey fries at Trinity Arcade too. If you’re cutting the carbs, your palette can still partake in their delightful patties with the Cheeseburger Salad with American cheese and secret burger sauce.
