Burgers exploded onto the food scene in Adelaide in a big way. But Burger Theory is here for the long haul. A desire for better American-style burger options in Australia led to a successful food truck experiment, which then became a bricks-and-mortar business in the East End.
Every Burger Theory patty is ground from the whole muscle of a Coorong Angus cow (not the cheap trim) and then hand formed. While it may be cheaper and quicker to get a patty machine, the Burger Theory team won’t compromise on quality.
The popular food truck menu is available but has expanded with a fully functioning kitchen. There are two vegetarian options (a Mexican-style Sloppy José made with beans and corn chips and a vegan falafel) as well as chicken for the poultry inclined and a monthly burger special that keeps the most experienced burger lovers on their toes.
Don’t bypass the frozen custard machine either – it will excite your sweet tooth. Beer drinkers can select from one of two rotating draught beers.
