When you think about Melbourne hamburger joints, odds are that Huxtaburger is one of the first to spring to mind. Originally a spin-off of Huxtable Diner, this no-frills American-style hamburger grill got its start in Collingwood and now boasts four additional venues in Prahran, Hawthorn, Ringwood and the CBD. As a rule, the team behind the counter like to keep things simple: sweet brioche buns wrapped around a wagyu beef patty with tomato, cheese, lettuce and pickles, or southern fried chicken with jalapeño mayo and slaw. Round out your meal with crinkle cut chips and an ice cold can of beer, and try not to think too hard about the fact that your lunch is named after a character from The Cosby Show.
UPDATE 15 SEPTEMBER 2017: Apparently Monday, September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day. While we're not really convinced that that's actually a thing, we're more than happy to take the Huxtaburger crew up on their offer of 2-for-1 burgers all day long. Every store is getting in on the action, or you can get your burgs home delivered via Deliveroo. For more info, go here.
