Burger loving Sydneysiders can get ready to add another place to their to-try list, because one of Melbourne's best burger joints is venturing up north to open a permanent store.
You might have heard of Huxtaburger. Since it opened in Melbourne in 2011 it's garnered a slew of loyal fans, and heap of American-style burger joints have opened in its wake. But it's only now, seven years and seven stores later that the shop has finally decided to expand to Sydney. It will open in Redfern on Saturday, September 15.
So what can you expect? The new Redfern menu features everything from the chain's famed Huxtaburger beef burger, through to chicken burgers, lamb burgers, breakfast burger, vegan burgers and even an extravagant ice cream burger. And, of course, every good meal at Huxtaburger should be rounded out with a side of chips and an ice cold beer.
The store itself is inspired by train stations, with graffiti and sleek black and white tiles — fitting, since it's located a stone's throw from Redfern station. While no photos of the completed store have yet been released, you can check out a teaser of the interiors here.
The new Redfern store is launching with an opening party on Saturday, September 15, and it's slinging a heap of cheap burgers to celebrate — $1 burgers to be exact. Yep, head into the new store and you'll be able to grab an OG Huxtaburger — a grass-fed beef patty with cheese, pickles, lettuce, mayo, mustard and tomato sauce — for pocket change. Meat-free burger fan? You can swap out the beef for a veggie patty.
There's no word yet on exactly how many burgers the store will be slinging for one dollaroo, but we suggest heading in earlier rather than later.
The Huxtaburger Redfern Grand Opening Party will run from 11am–8pm on Saturday, September 15.
