Can one city have too many burger bars? Melbourne certainly seems determined to put that question to the test. Here to join the party is South Australian cult burger joint, Benny's, opening their first Victorian location on Chapel Street.

It's a bold move, especially considering there's competition from Betty's, Hello Sam, Leonard's House of Love and Kung Fu Burger on all sides. Sleepy Adelaide this is not. But Benny's has developed a serious reputation in Adelaide as the go-to for a cheat meal, specialising in juicy, hard-to-hold-in-two-hands, American-style burgers.

If this is your first visit to Benny's, start with something simple like the cheeseburger. Then work your way through the menu, up to monsters like the Fat Boy: an Angus beef patty, 8-hour slow-cooked brisket, double cheese, BBQ sauce and onion. All your usual burger friends are here too: mac and cheese, milkshakes you struggle to suck through a straw and chips smothered in gravy.

There are over twenty on the menu and Benny's is even giving out 300 freebies on its opening day on Friday, June 2. Mark this one in your diaries, launch day freebies from 5pm will include the signature cheeseburger, a classic chicken burger or a vego cheeseburger, on the house.

There are also plans to launch Melbourne's first bottomless burger brunch later in the year, which sounds like a truly incredible hangover cure.

Benny's officially opens on Friday, June 2 at 560 Chapel Street, just opposite Chapelli's. The free burger special is running that day only for the 300 customers who dine-in from 5pm, so get your skates on. After that, it will be open Monday–Thursdays and Sunday 11am–10pm, plus 11am–12am on Friday and Saturday.
