    Whether you like them stacked high or home-style, Perth is jam packed with some top burger spots – here’s our favourite picks.


    Hoodburger has been capturing the hearts and minds of Perth since their low-key beginnings; popping up in laneways and at parties around Perth, then in the Tiger Bao test kitchen. We’ve talked about these guys heaps already, but with good reason – succulent smashburgers, dropping with nostalgic Americana. We can’t help but think of Scrooge McDuck when we see their heaving trays of fries – you almost want to dive right in.

    848 Beaufort Street, Inglewood

    Short Order Burger Co.

    Another pop-up success story! Adding a CBD location in 2018 to accompany its existing kitchen at Freo’s the The Sunshine Harvester Works, city workers can finally sort out their lunchtime burger cravings. Pillowy soft brioche, juicy grass fed beef patties cooked perfectly to medium rare, plus all the fixin’s. Honestly, what more could you ask for?

    Gary’s Diner

    Gary’s! Diner! These burgers are worth an exclamation point or two. These glistening beacons of deliciousness are also highly worth tracking down – I reckon the elusiveness of the truck might even add to the enjoyment.. This mysterious food truck is helmed by the crew behind Comida Do Sul, as well as beloved South Freo bar Madalena’s, so you know you’re getting the goods. Choose from a single, double or veggie option – the curly fries are a must, though.

    Alfred’s Kitchen

    Ok, look. These might not be the fanciest, most glamorous, gourmet burgers you can find in Perth. But as they say, without darkness, there is no light, and you can’t have gourmet without home-style goodness – and that’s what Alfred’s is all about. Pull up to this roadside spot in Guildford for a complete lack of pretentiousness, a super, tasty affordable feed, and a cosy fireside chat with mates.

    Corner Meadow and James Street, Guildford

    Meet & Bun

    Meet & Bun has built an almost frenzied, cult-like following since its launch in 2015. Now with three locations, you can get your fix of these Shake Shack inspired burgers even easier. Whether you’re into a basic cheeseburger or a stacked high skyscraper of a meal – the star of the show will be the WA produce, especially the juicy pink, hand pressed Euro Chef beef patties.

    3 Cantonment Street, Fremantle


    It’s a testament to how good their burgers are that tbsp., not a really burger joint, is on the list. One of our tip top favourite brunch spots, these guys do a ripper kimcheese burger – a double patty served pink, and topped with pickled cucumber and kimchi, as well as Japanese mayo and American cheese on a brioche bun. Their buttermilk fried chicken burger is also worth the trip – with pickled cucumber and gochugang slaw, it’s a perfect fusion of southern American and Korean flavours.

    10 King William Street, Bayswater

    Troublemaker Burgers

    Another ode to simplicity, Troublemaker are serving up some tidy burgers from Yagan Square. Like make other frontrunners in our faves, Troublemaker models itself on American fast food chains that have captured Australia’s collective imagination over the last few years. In spite of some teething problems, Troublemaker’s straightforward burgers have become some of our favourites – particularly for those times you feel like a burger, but don’t necessarily want to feel like you need a nap afterwards.

    GS11, Yagan Square, 376 Wellington Street, Perth

    Juicy Buns

    As if it wasn’t already obvious, Perth loves a pop-up, and Juicy Buns is no exception to that rule. Popping up since the start of 2018, these guys have found a permanent home in the Tribute Coffee & Kitchen in Shelley. Every Friday and Saturday night, get your fill of these epic burgers that are are just as juicy as their name implies.
