We had hoped to go to Badger and Hawke (see Big Fil's review) for a quick lunch near work, however it was unexpectedly closed in the lead up to Christmas. Instead, we wandered the streets looking for another burger joint. Starving, we finally found the Lt Bourke Street outpost of Mr Burger.
There are about four types of burger to choose from. One of the guys went for the Mr Meat which came with caramelised onions, bacon and BBQ sauce.
I went with the simple Mr Burger - a juicy beef patty with the typical salad ingredients. While it looks small, the burger is quite big. I'd liken the taste to a gourmet version of Hungry Jacks - especially with the grilled flavour and the tomato sauce and mayo.
While another of the guys went for the Mr Hot which came with jalapenos, onion rings, bacon and chilli mayo.
We also got some chips to share.
Mr Burger is normally a food truck. However, this seemed to be a permanent shop for Mr Burger. It's small, there are no tables and it's all take away service (which we didn't realise before we turned up). We ended up eating our burgers across the road in front of an office building.
Verdict: we liked it.
Service is slow - perhaps it felt particularly long since we were all starving and it had started to rain. There was a bit of a mix up with our orders but in a good way. Somehow they ended up making two burgers for me (but I only paid for the one).
For the price, it's quite good value ($10-$12 each). The burgers taste nice but my preference is still for Grill'd and Fat Bob's. Also gave a gander at Snooze's review of the Mr Burger located near Vic Markets.
