The Best Burgers in Brisbane
If you’re on our wavelength, you’ll probably agree that burgers are the MVP of food groups. We reckon there’s nothing not to love about a flavour-packed patty and cheese smushed between a bun and adorned with all manner of attendant items (and by that we mean the unsung heroes of the piece—the pickles, relishes, spicy sauces and beyond!).
Burgers are a firm family favourite in most households we know, so we’re here to dish the dirt on where to get the very best burgers in Brisbane.
The Best Burgers in Brisbane
1. Brooklyn Depot
The ultimate destination for iconic American cuisine, Brooklyn Depot has it all.
The place is brimming with Brooklyn-inspired swagger and laid back Aussie charm. The menu boasts all the culprits you’d expect at an American burger joint; hot dogs, shakes, Southern-fried chicken, ribs, wings and more. There’s also a kids menu, that offers chicken, hot dogs, burgers and Mac and cheese.
Brooklyn Depot is an absolute no-brainer if you’re in Brissy and feeling like a burger.
Location: B8, b9/168 Grey St, South Brisbane
Whatever your burger tipple, there’s guaranteed to be something on the menu you’ll love at Charboys.
Our pick would be the Scorcher with a side of Filthy Fries (served with Southern fried chicken, American cheddar, bacon, onions, jalapeños, signature sauce, coconut chilli and BBQ hickory.) Drool!
And for the younger crowd, there are deluxe chicken nuggets on offer, served with a classic combination of fries and tomato sauce. What’s not to love?
Location: 1/190 Oxford St, Bulimba
3. Benz on Miller
Bursting with handmade delights, the Benz on Miller menu is bursting with drool-worthy picks that’ll keep you coming back time and time again.
While we try not to have favourites we can’t help but profile the Sweet Baby Jeebus as our first choice—we’re talking wild turkey-maple glazed fried chicken, bacon, cheese, lettuce & Frank's Mayo. If your kids are in the market for something a little less…complex, however, there are some more basic offerings, too. Whichever way you slice it, they’re all delicious!
Location: 1/57 Miller St, Murarrie QLD
4. Getta Burger
Everything at Getta Burger is made from scratch, as they’re committed to sourcing the best meat from their own butchers, supporting great local producers, and knowing exactly what goes into each burger. For all these reasons, Getta offers some of the best burgers in Brisbane.
Their honest, simple ethos is what has made them such a hit in Brisbane, alongside their drool-worthy menu, of course. There are plenty of burger choices (and we mean plenty), plant-based options, kids picks, BBQ melts, thick shakes, loaded fries and a delicious list of extra add-ons that mean you can really tailor your meal to your exact requirements. What a win!

5. Mac From Way Back
If you want to take your burger consumption to the next level—try Mac From Way Back.
Their delicious Mac ’n’ cheese is the perfect companion to wherever your go-to burger order might be. If you’re feeling brave, the Holy Trinity Burger boasts a smashed beef patty, Nashville fried chicken, bacon, dutch curry mayo, pickles and onions on a potato roll. What a line-up!
Location: 31 Logan Rd, Woolloongabba
6. Grassfed Vegan
Choosing to hero locally sourced ingredients and an uncomplicated menu, Grassfed Vegan is an excellent pick for plant-based burgers in Brisbane.
Each burger is lovingly crafted using only the highest quality, sustainable, local ingredients, and there’s an amazing selection of both sweet and savoury items to choose from; including Hawaiian, Aussie and BBQ style burgers, as well as a plant-based fudge brownie sundae, churros and loafed biscoff. Yum!
Location: 67 Fish Ln, South Brisbane
7. Betty’s Burgers
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’re willing to bet you don’t need us to give you the Betty’s Burgers spiel.
There are multiple locations across Brisbane, and each of them serves up the same fresh, juicy burgers, sides and shakes that the brand is so well-known for. We can’t move past a Classic at Betty’s, served as is with Angus beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and special sauce. For the little ones, there are some equally as delicious options to please the young customers!
