An all time fave, Grill’d pleases all kinds of appetites with their extensive menu to choose from. It almost makes it too difficult to only pick one. The always popular Grill’d does not disappoint on taste but does however get a little messy. It is a comfy dining experience with a buzzing atmosphere extending from The Parade. It’s great for date nights as long as you don’t mind sauce dripping down your face and hands. So on that note maybe stay clear until you secure a second date!
Best Burger: Baa Baa Burger

Best Burger: Chicken Delight
If you’re looking for a quick burger fix, Burgastronomy will deliver. It is a small bar with only a select few burgers to choose from but what it doesn’t have in size, it makes up for in quality. This funky place is situated on the busy O’Connell Street with a constant revolving door of customers looking to ease their burger cravings. The burgers are a comfortable size (ones you can actually fit in your mouth) and full of flavour. The simple menu will please the fussiest of eaters and accommodate those after a veggie burger too.
Best Burger: Signature
Starting out as a food truck, Burger Theory has found itself a permanent residence on Union Street, just off of Rundle Street, catering for your burger needs. The American burger bar theme has an easy and laidback vibe ideal for a visit in between uni classes. The service is quick and the taste is delicious. The burgers are reasonably priced and there are plenty of options to add chips, soft drinks, juices, milkshakes and beers to your order. Make sure you try their signature ‘Truck Sauce’ too; it has a tasty tangy flavour to go perfectly with your side of chips.
