Five Points

North Sydney

Taking its name from the Five Points District in NYC, this burger joint has New York values through and through. The service is smart, polite and straight to the point, and the bigger-than-your-head burgers are cooked to absolute juicy perfection. We’d recommend tackling the Bronx first, with double cheese, tomato sauce, mustard, pickles, aioli, bacon, onion jam and lettuce. Find out more

Soul Burger


Soul Burger seeks to challenge our very notions of traditional burgerology with its fascinating (and delectable) menu of ‘plant-based’ burgers. Go for the Chilli Beef (that’s plant-based beef, lettuce, tomato, jalapenos, chilli sauce, tomato relish and aioli), with some beer-battered, herb-seasoned ‘Green Fries’ on the side. Who knew that eating healthy could taste so deliciously unhealthy? Find out more

Bar Luca


A classic after-work haunt (and even more so since its swanky renovation), Bar Luca is a bright, comfy, contemporary spot to relax with all your hip, attractive friends. It’s also a great place to grab a huge, flavour-bursting burger! The Blame Canada, for example, consists of a 200g wagyu beef patty, maple-glazed bacon, poutine and maple aioli. Oh yes.

“Great little place – affordable and tasty food. Burgers taste even better than they look and beer is good too. And me likes beer and burgers!! Will definitely go again!” – stefanieb

Inner West

Bonarche Burgers


The joy of simplicity runs free at Bonarche Burgers, where homely décor, warm service and good, old-fashioned burgery goodness top the agenda. The Beach n Beef is a real gem, with prime Aussie beef, bacon, avocado, pineapple, salad, aioli and barbeque sauce. Plus, it’s especially lovely to munch on while you gaze in contemplation at the painting of Star Wars characters re-enacting the Last Supper. Find out more

Paul’s Famous Hamburgers


Paul’s been serving up his famous hamburgers to Sydney’s hungry bellies since 1957, when Elvis reigned supreme and the world was still black and white. This place is a bona fide institution, but it doesn’t get by on reputation alone. These burgers are famous for a reason! If it’s your first time, you have to try Paul’s Special Burger with bacon and egg (and cheese, if you’re feeling extra decadent). Find out more

“I was introduced to Paul’s Famous Hamburgers by my brother in law. Although the queue can be long during peak hours, it worth the wait and the staff are very friendly and know how to act quickly to grab our order during the queue. Good job!! In terms of the burger… it is THE BEST BURGER that I ever had in my life.” – Andrew Zhander
