The legends behind Hashtag Burgers have been all over the place lately — but they're not done bringing you burger goodness just yet. Following the massive hype around their Campbelltown pop-up and their masterful Burgapalooza festival, Sydney's new-age burger heroes are teaming up with the former Mr. Crackles Head Chef Sebastien Cens to launch an In-N-Out-inspired pop-up in Sydney's CBD. Smartly dubbed Down-N-Out — not to be confused with the actual In-N-Out pop-ups that polarise Sydney every couple of months — the pop-up will open Wednesday, June 8 and run for a full month at the Sir John Young Hotel on Liverpool Street.

As it's a homage to In-N-Out's classic combo of beef, bread and American cheese, the menu will be a simple one — but rest assured it will include a few Aussie twists (namely a vego option, which we're quite happy about). On the drinks side of things, shakes aren't the only way to go. Murray's Brewing Co. — a small brewery on the NSW north coast — is also getting involved, and offering the age-old pairing of burgers and beer with their Angry Man Pale Ale on tap.

Keeping with the In-N-Out theme, 'secret menu hacks' are also promised, giving patrons the options to make their burgers animal- or protein-style if they choose. We're not quite sure what this means, but we'll happily head along to find out. The surprises don't end there either, with the pop-up being the first of many changes for the Sir John Young Hotel, in an attempt to revitalise the lock-out ridden area. 

American-inspired burger joints seem to be a reoccurring theme in Sydney's food scene, with the Shake Shack spin-off Jack's Newtown opening late last year. We just hope a Five Guys-inspired eatery is next on the list.

The Down-N-Out pop-up will be launching at the Sir John Young Hotel, corner of George and Liverpool Streets, Sydney on Wednesday, June 8 and will run until July 6. More hints and clues on what to expect at the pop-up will no doubt be posted online over the coming weeks, so keep an eye on the Down-N-Out Facebook page for updates.
