29 Oct Ribs & Burgers, Hawthorn
To celebrate its third birthday, Ribs & Burgers were offering a $3 birthday burger at all its stores so I thought it would be a good opportunity to check it out. I was told that the birthday burger was pretty much the same as the regular cheeseburger but without lettuce or tomato. After placing my order I was given a numbered watering can filled with cutlery, serviettes and sauce bottles and there was a station with water and some extra sauces for self-service. They even have a thoughtfully placed handbasin and some soap to wash those moreish sauces off your hands if you don’t want to resort to finger-licking.
Ribs & Burgers say their beef patties are 100% pure beef – no binding agents, salt or flavours. The pattie was charred but juicy, slightly pink with a nice and very enjoyable beefy flavour. It was actually quite refreshing to have a simple, no-frills and non-greasy burger for a change and the birthday cheeseburger seemed like a good introduction to their menu.
