Brisbaneâ€™s Best Burgers
Caroline Wild | On 19, Oct 2014
Brisbane is going through a burger boom at the moment, and with so much hype about new places opening, and old favourites still going strong, we have taken the time to list our top choices, as well as the ones you can probably skip.
Itâ€™s here, itâ€™s new, and it is ooooh so good! With the original store located in Sydney, Brisbanites have been dreaming of the day Chur would open its doors here. Located on Constance St in Fortitude Valley, Chur has hit the atmosphere, burger and drink trifecta.
With lamb, beef, chicken, pork, fish and a vegie burger on the menu there is enough variety to please any appetite. With an abundance of sides, mains, snacks, brekky items and dessert you can easily find a meal that youâ€™ll love.
With a full bar they have great drink options, and for those driving try the house-made pomegranate soda or the salted caramel milkshake, (just the memory brings on drooling flashbacks).
Try the beef or pulled pork burgers with sweet potato fries.

In the heart of the CBD Miel Container is DIY burger heaven. With fixed menu items, or the ability to create your own, this place makes burgers FAST and delicious. Each one comes with a few thick cut chips, which looks underwhelming to start with, but is just the right amount to compliment their super filling burgers. They have brioche bunsâ€¦.need we say more?
Try absolutely anything, but get the brioche bun, and make sure to add onion jam and pickles.

Located in South Bank this is the place to go if you have been searching for Brisbaneâ€™s best onion rings. Stacks of perfectly battered, golden, deep-fried rings that are oh-so-crunchy, but not too oily, and accompanied by mouth watering aioli. With a great selection of beef, steak, chicken, lamb and vego burgers, that are great in size and flavours, they do burgers well. As a small store, however, their service can be a bit hit and miss. If you go on a busy night you may not get their best quality, and may be waiting a while. But on a good night you just canâ€™t fault the food.
Try the Swiss Miss or Bruce for beef lovers, and donâ€™t forget the onion rings.

Another Valley hotspot, Benâ€™s Burgers has a menu of three burgers, as well as brekky burgers, and they have their bun-meat-sauce ratio down pat. They donâ€™t alter the menu items here, so if you want to add or remove from your burger this is a no-go zone. As a new favourite with locals this place is packed during lunch hours, and the wait (sometimes up to an hour) can be unbearable, so time your visit right.
Try the BB Special, the jalapenos add a nice kick, and donâ€™t forget the chilli cheese fries.

The Flying Cock
With all the hype about this place we were expecting big things, but this may be one you can leave off your list of places to try. Although their pulled pork was delish, their beef burger pattie was too big, leaving the sauce ratio seriously lacking. Like the burger, the chips and onion rings were a bit on the salty and oily side- and by a bit, we mean a lot.
Try the pulled pork burger, it didnâ€™t disappoint.
