Craving a mouthwatering burger experience in Canberra? Look no further as we dive into the capital’s top spots for the juiciest, most delectable burgers to celebrate International Burger Day (28 May). From classic beef patties to innovative flavours, these burger joints have something to satisfy every palate. Plus, check out as some celebrate the day with special offerings and deals!


From the flame-grilled patty down to the housemade aioli, Brodburger’s menu speaks for itself. An institution and for good reason, Canberrans can never seem to get enough of this iconic staple. With so much to love, and the perfect ratio of it all, you’ll find most don’t have just one favourite burger as there are many on high rotation. However, one we find we always go back to is the classic Brodburger, made with beef, lettuce, tomato, Spanish onion, homemade aioli, tomato relish and your choice of cheese. There’s nothing out of the ordinary, it’s just done really, really well. Ordered without fries and a side of aioli is also a crime, so you have been warned!

Grease Monkey

Nailing the art of the perfect burger so well that they have time to experiment with different flavour combinations, Grease Monkey gets our need for a good burger. Starting with their signature beef burger, it only goes up from there, giving you the full-service (literally, they even have a burger called Full-Service) where things get dirtier and greaser as the menu goes on (in the best way, of course). With a rotating specials board featuring truly unique combos, International Burger Day deserves nothing less than spectacular. Introducing the Jurassic Pork – braised pork belly pineapple fritters, lime mayo, pickled jalapeno, onion, chilli and coriander. Available for a limited time only!


Bringing back retro diners with burgers, dogs, shakes and soft serves, Wonderburger is making family mealtimes greater. A menu where everything on the menu is wonderful, from the signature Wonder beef burger, Wonderbird, Wondersmash and Wonderdog, finish it off with crinkle-cut chips and your favourite soft-serve, and you’ll be golden! If you’re a newbie, don’t leave without trying the Nashville Hot Bird – a spicier twist on the classic with spiced chicken, lettuce, pickles, onion, Alabama white dressing and their top-secret wonder sauce.

Baby Su

An Asian fusion take on a burger, don’t go to Baby Su expecting the standard cheeseburger. A mix between a bao and burger, the playful fast-paced restaurant has become well-known for its ‘bao-gers’. With an extra-large fluffy bao as the bun, it is filled with Japanese-Korean flavours like Korean fried chicken, braised pork belly and panko-crumbed fried tofu, served with their signature waffle cut fries. Our favourite? It has to be the pork belly with pickled cucumber and Lorean pear slaw.

Burger Villains

Villainous burgers served with the best value, Burger Villains brings the familiar vibe of your local takeaway shop but with burgers that are a cut above. With prices starting at $11.50 for the classic cheeseburger, their unique smash patties and potato buns are unlike any in Canberra. Flipping the must-haves (beef, fried chicken and veg burgers), the ‘Supervillains’ section then goes into the unexpected, where smash patties and fried chicken are stacked together in between one big bun. The house signature, The Villain, can do no wrong, made with house mince smash beef, lettuce, Roma tomatoes, Spanish onions, American cheese, Villain Sauce and a potato bun. Lucky for you, Burger Villains are doing $5 burgers until sold out and free chips with any burger purchase across all their stores to celebrate International Burger Day.
