There’s no better time to indulge in a family meal than on the weekend, and there’s no more indulgent meal than a burger. Here are a few of our favourite places.

Easy Street Diner
Order anxiety isn’t a thing at Main Beach’s Easy Street Diner – the whole menu is to die for, so you can’t order wrong! From the Southern Fried chicken burger to the tickle pickle, their extensive menu (packed with no less than 16 burgers) literally offers something for everyone.

Eddie’s Grub House
Anyone in north-eastern New South Wales will tell you that Eddie’s Grub House is well worth crossing the border for – albeit not given the current restrictions (though the thought of their ‘The Sid’ burger would be enough to get you through two weeks of quarantine).

Betty’s Burgers & Concrete Co.
You no doubt already know and love Betty’s Burgers, but we couldn’t leave it off this list. With more locations popping up by the day, there’s sure to be a Betty’s close to you or your dad. Just be sure to treat him to some ‘concrete’ (their mouth-watering version of ice cream) after lunch or dinner.

Ze Pickle
You’ve never seen a burger quite like a Ze Pickle burger – they’re mammoth! Featuring everything from fries to cheese sticks to beer battered whiting – all topped with their signature pickle, of course – the whole family will want to stay and sample every burger on the menu (but you’ll barely be able to finish one, we promise!).

The Boundary
A Brisbane icon, we can’t think of many better places to grab a family bite than The Boundary. The newly-refurbished favourite features a jam-packed menu, but we definitely recommend the classic Boundary Burger. Everyone will love it!
