Not much beats a great burger.
Fresh bun. Melting cheese. Smokey beef. Crispy bacon. Caramelised onion. Tomato. Beetroot. Lettuce. Need we go on?
If you love a good burger as much as we do, then look no further! Here are just some of the best burgers on offer around Newcastle and the Hunter.
But check your local as well. Pubs have a stellar reputation for having some of the best burgers around!
Have we got your back or what?
1. The Exchange Hotel, Hamilton
This little beauty is just one of the burgers on the menu at The Exchange and is available for $5 day or night with any drink purchase every Wednesday.
2. Paterson Tavern, Paterson
The Paterson Hotel special has to be the Big Kahuna Burger with double chicken breast schnitzel, double crispy bacon, double grilled pineapple, double cheese, tavern slaw, sweet chilli mayo and topped with beer battered onion rings. Wow.
3. Shortland Hotel, Shortland
The Shorty's 'giant' burger has a massive 500g beef pattie, lettuce, tomato, relish, onion rings, double bacon, cheese and egg. Looks pretty good to us!
4. The Gunyah Hotel, Belmont
The Gunyah thinks it might just have the best burger in Lake Macquarie! They might be right, but how will you know unless you give it a crack?
5. Seabreeze Hotel, Nelson Bay
What better way to treat your tastebuds than a Crispy Pork Belly Burger at The Seabreeze?
