We stumbled across Handlebar Burgers in Maribyrnong whilst googling “burger joints near Highpoint Shopping Centre” and when we saw the photos and offerings of loaded fries, we were sold.
Tucked away in the residential area amongst the corner shops on Wests Rd, the restaurant could be easily missed which is why word of mouth is so important for a place like this.
Staff greeted us promptly and were very friendly and the restaurant itself was quite spacious with plenty of tables to choose from. The menu was bright and inviting and we loved how they had named their burgers. With plenty of great options to choose from we opted for The Cop (vegetarian), the Super Trooper (double beef patty & bacon) and the Chaplin (kids burger) as well as a side of Chilli Cheese Fries.
Our food was served promptly and looked just as good as it tasted. We especially loved that they used beer battered fries for their loaded fries which were crunchy and super delicious (and spicy!). The battered halloumi in the vegetarian burger was amazing and incredibly indulgent and well, the beef burger speaks for itself. Ingredients were fresh, buns were crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle and the meat was tender.
We were super impressed and satisfied with our feed at Handlebar Burgers and would definitely stop by again anytime we were in the area to try out the rest of the menu and the milkshakes. Prices are super affordable and they also hold a liquor licence so you can combo your burger with a nice cold beer!
