Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the Burger Revolution.
In the last 12 months, Sydney has been swept up in a cyclone of medium-rare patties, glazed brioche buns and secret sauces. At the epicentre of Sydney's Burgerpalooza is Bondi. We've done the hard work for you and narrowed it down to a top five (in no particular order!).
Hardly a day goes by where you won't find a long line snaking down Glenayr Avenue. Locals and visitors haggle for a spot at the share tables for Tony Gosden's burgers, which are the perfect compromise between Aussie-style heartiness, and American-style deliciousness.

2. Little L Chicken & Burgers
There is perhaps nothing better after a long sunset on North Bondi's Grassy Knoll than powering up the hill and destroying a Ben Buckler Burger from Little L - formerly Olies Burgers. We aren't sure what is better; the chicken, always cooked to perfection, or the delicious mayo. Fun fact: Little L is on the site of the original Oporto's. It's holy land for burger lovers.

3. Neighbourhood Bar Bondi
These guys are burger pioneers. Before it was a 'thing' to have scrumptious burgers on the menu in bars and eateries, Neighbourhood knew that no one can say no to a Royale with cheese - a triple patty masterclass. For those less carnivorous, have a go at the V-Burger. And don't even get us started on the shoestring fries...

4. Fat Rupert's
Venture up Bondi Road, and stop when you see the magnificent Bondi Beach mural that lives at the corner of Boonara Avenue and Bondi Road. You have arrived at Fat Rupert's where their Yeezy Burger consistently gets into lists of the top burgers in the city. Sure, they're sliders, but we dare you to say no to one of these little bad boys.

It's genius - a butcher that also makes phenomenal burgers and steaks. The team at Macelleria see your burger as a work of art, and the taste reflects it. Amongst one of the most cost-efficient burgers in Bondi, Macelleria supplies Angus beef to many of the best restaurants in Sydney, so you know what you're getting is world class.
