The Burger Boyz Top 10 Must Try Burgers in Canberra

Burger Boyz

Canberrans love a good burger.

Back in the day, your choices for a burger consisted of whether you wanted a plain/with the lot burger from your local takeaway, a fast food burger or pretending you had a kid so you could order off the kids menu. Thankfully those days are over and have been replaced with a deluge of different types of burgers, from your classic meat, cheese, lettuce and tomato, to your double patty, garlic aioli infused, hickory smoked bacon burger.

It’s all personal preference

We’ve tasted some great burgers in Canberra but the hardest question to answer is still ‘What’s the best burger in Canberra?’

Who’s to judge if an amazing American Style Cheeseburger is better than the Caramelised Onion, Maple bacon, Tomato Chutney, 100 grain-fed beef burger? Two completely different burgers, two different amazing tastes. So here it is, in no particular order, the Top 10 Must Try Burgers in the ACT.

1. Hopscotch: All American Burger $18

2. Brod Burger: Brodburger $13.50

Why we liked it: Smoked Bacon Jam? Yes please… you can tell the Chefs at Shorty’s sat down and worked out every bit of this burger, from the look to the taste. A really nicely put together burger with a taste to match.
