Huxtaburger on Urbanspoon Foodie Partners: Audrey


Back last year in July 2012, I started my burger adventure at The Merrywell, and since then I haven’t visited another burger joint until recently.
Audrey and I had different plans originally, but at the last minute we decided to go to Huxtaburger.
Whilst waiting for Audrey, I noticed Eddie McGuire having lunch with his two kids!

So what did I order at Huxtaburger? Why, The Huxtaburger of course!
Huxtaburger: Beef pattie, cheese, mayo, pickles, tomato sauce, tomato, mustard and lettuce.

  • Brioche bun: lightly toasted, airy, rather sugary and greasy (A squirt of melted butter before toasting)
  • Beef pattie: well seasoned,  and moist.
  • Tomato and lettuce are very fresh.
  • Pickles: Sadly, it didn’t taste pickled and at first I thought I was eating sliced zucchinis, which is a disappointment because I love my pickles!!!
  • Mustard and mayo are very rich and creamy. Great combination.

Small Crinkle Cut Chips:

The chips were fried crisp, and didn’t have an oily taste which is good.

Huxtaburger

Overall:

  • Best burger in town? Nope, but I enjoyed my burger :D
  • Fresh ingredients? Yes.
  • Heart Attack inducing? Of course! Watch them cook thosez burgers!
  • Long wait time? Yes. Expect a 20 min wait.
  • Seats? Limited.

    I’ve been meaning to try huxtaburger for ages, but i hear it really isn’t as good as they say too. Here’s hoping you find a really good place!

      Hello Charissa :)

      Yeah – Still looking for the best burger place :( Still haven’t found it yet!

      I’m hoping to try out their Collins St place and see, but doubt it would be any different considering it’s the same people!

      Will definitely report if I find something better :D

      Love,

          Oh, nah I haven’t actually. It is in my mental list to go!

          Just need to fit it somewhere on my foodie list :P

          But I heard it is very good :) Especially when Matt Preston raves about it :)

          Love,
