Beef Burger: 9/10

Chicken Burger: 8.5/10

Sides: 8/10

 

So why Fritzenburger?

He says: A Brisbane jaunt in honour of my darling Mum’s 60th birthday brought us here the day after the party (and all the party drinks). Am a big fan of the Harajuku Gyoza restaurants and this is the same team’s take on burger goodness.

She says: This was our saviour on an extremely hot day in Brissy. The lay out here is cool, front bar (with air-con) leads out to an open back area which, while too hot to eat in when we went, looks like a great place for a group of people and a bunch of burgs/beers.

Tell us about the Fritzen Burger?

He says: Great Burger. The patty melted in your mouth and had the perfect partner in the sensational Fritzensauce. The addition of the Maple Syrup Candied bacon should be made mandatory. The bun was a little on the dry side but it would take a whole lot more than that to bring the quality down on this little guy.

She says: You could tell by looking at this cutie it was going to be good. I didn’t mind the bun and I liked how soft it was and how much it compressed when you bit in. The star of this really was that candied bacon –  love that salty sweet!

So then, how did you find the Chicken Burger?

She says: The chicken looks pretty thick but it wasn’t too much. Nice crispy lettuce, fresh tomato, spicy sauce and a good hunk of american cheese meant this was a solid burger choice. Juicy chicken thighs with spicy mayo are a perfect pair.  Would eat again.

He says: Top stuff once more. I’d normally prefer my fried chicken fillet to be of the breast variety but the thighs got it done here and made me look like a fool. The spicy mayo lifted everything up another notch as well.

Now, what about the sides?

He says: These were as good as they sounded on the page: French fries loaded with cheese sauce, candied bacon, green onions, Fritzensauce and Twisties salt. YES, TWISTIES SALT!

She says:  Seconded.

Beef Burger (Rowdy): 9.4/10

Other Beef Burger: 8.0/10

Sides: 9/10

 

So why Guilty?

She says: This place is the (I think) third burger joint from internet burger man Jimmy’s Burgers. He has a couple of places in Melbourne and the dude seems to know his stuff. Also he uses our friend Eli’s pastrami (check out their Ruben the Eli’s Ruby when you go) so the fella must have taste.

He says: The photos of the burgers at this place had me all sweaty and lusty like from the get go. With an ever growing list of burger joints to try (we are amidst Sydney’s burger golden age and it’s almost like there’s a new place opening every week!) this was at the top of our esteemed list.

Tell us about the Rowdy Dowdy Double Jeopardy Burger ?

He says:  This was a superb burger. The double patties, both salted and cooked to perfection, melted in the mouth upon arrival.  Add to that a sensational soft milk bun, crispy bacon, glorious cheese and juicy jalapenos (a nice alternative to pickles) and a burger star has been born.

She saysI have never been quiet about my distaste for the double but on this menu it was really the only other viable choice and after eating it, I am so glad of that. This burger was one of my favourites this year. The patties were magical, somehow creamy and luscious but also a bit crumbly. The double meat was just right, even with the bacon, no were near the super rich meat overload of other doubles I have tried. The bun was great, soft by not too soft, the cheese was plentiful, the bacon crispy and packed with flavour, over all this burger just kicked all the goals. Try it.

So then, how did you find the Kecksburger?

She says: Pretty significant difference between this burger and the pervious. So much so that I think perhaps we god a dud. The bun was way to tasted, resulting in a very dry, hard burger and the patty had none of its predecessor luxuriousness – it was over cooked and a bit tasteless.

DSC01741 (1)

He says:  Not as good as it’s bigger sibling but still a solid little burger. The bun was a little on the stale side and the patty was overcooked a little.

Now, what about the sides?

She says: Tater tots are some of my favourite potato incarnations. These were up there with the best, crispy, salty, doused in just enough (read actually not that much) cheese sauce, caramelised onion and bacon bits. Rich, too much but bloody awesome.

He says: Crispy tater tots covered in cheese sauce, bacon and caramelised onion that tasted even better than that just sounds. Next time I’d attempt to up the game with double cheese and chicken salt.
