Melbourne, we know you've got a voracious appetite for burgers, but it doesn't look like you'll be going hungry anytime soon. There are more burger joints in this city than there are people, just about. And one of your faves – the beloved Mr Burger – now has a concept store in Bentleigh in the city's southeast.
Chances are you've already sampled Mr Burger's wares in one place or another, with the brand manifesting all across Melbourne in the form of trucks, shops and outlandish competitions. In 2017 they brought a new head chef on board, and it's none other than Belle's Hot Chicken founder Morgan McGlone.
"I loved what the Mr Burger guys were already doing," said McGlone. "I just tried to take their formula to a whole other level."
So far McGlone has added a bunch of tasty ideas, including an Oreo shake, handmade onion rings, homemade hot sauce and a new burger seasoning, as well as a take on the Maccas McFeast called The Deluxe. His menu changes have been rolling out to the rest of the Mr Burger locations around the country since.
The Bentleigh store also offers a selection beers on tap, including Melbourne Bitter and Goose Island IPA. Plus they have an outdoor area, so you can soak up some sun on hot days, and a new app called 100 Orders, which lets you order through your phone.
