An In-N-Out-Style Burger Joint Is Opening in Sydney's Northwest Suburbs

Australia's answer to a certain cult American burger chain, Down N' Out is this week moving up and out, launching its first standalone restaurant in Ryde. The new venture comes just over a year after owners Archie Saliba and Ben Kagan first introduced the Down N' Out concept to Sydney via a pop-up — which later saw them take over the kitchen of The Sir John Young Hotel — with a menu of US-style burgers, deep fried cheese patties and loaded 'tiger fries'.

Now, Down N' Out's graduating to digs that are completely their own, opening the doors to a space outside Top Ryde Shopping Centre this Saturday, September 23. This one's a little more polished than the CBD kitchen, though the comic book theme, the small bar feel and the soundtrack of soul, funk and hip hop remain.

In fact, fans needn't worry about too many changes at all — the menu at Down N' Out 2.0 is a pretty close match to the original, right through to that infamously fiery hot sauce. Thankfully, the epic weekly burger specials aren't going anywhere either.

The biggest change is that you'll now be able to wash those burgers down with a decadent Down N' Out shake, in flavours like Oreo and salted caramel. Pending liquor licence, a range of wild and wacky cocktail creations could also be on the cards.

You'll find Down N' Out at 95 Blaxland Road, Ryde, from this Saturday, September 23. It'll be slinging burgers daily, from 11am-9pm.
