The grill masters at Bad Boys won’t share their spice list with anyone. It’s a secret.
Fair enough – whatever they’re putting in those Angus patties, it’s working. Walk past this spot on any given lunch break and you’ll see a long line of office workers queuing for a burger.
After completing food pilgrimages around the USA and South East Asia, owners Tam Le, Trent Le and Wayne Nguyen took the all-American burger, removed the sloppiness and made it their own. The brioche buns are fluffy not soggy. The patties are juicy not oily. The 18-millimetre thick-cut chips are just crispy enough.
With a kitchen this small, grill space is tight so the trio limits the offering to seven burgers. The classic Bad Boy is always a sell-out, but if you want to build your own the kitchen will pile on as many layers of bacon, cheese, onion rings and panko- crumbed chicken as your heart can handle.
Bad Boys isn’t just for meat lovers. There’s a burger built around a haloumi- and feta-stuffed mushroom and another featuring paprika-spiced eggplant.
Packaging is stamped with the face of the ultimate bad boy, Breaking Bad’s Walter White. The walls are painted with superhero murals, all eating burgers of course.
