Best Burgers When You're Hungover

Big night? Need something greasy to soothe the pain that you’re going through? Cue the list of the best burgers in Brisbane for when you’re feeling, well, a little bit worse for wear!

Chur Burger – Signature Burger

20 Constance St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006


This has be one of the best burgers in Brissy, and maybe one of the most succulent, crispy pieces of pork that has ever been placed between two buns. If Chur isn’t offering one of their out of control ‘burgers of the week’ specials that I don’t know about yet, then get this! Let’s face it - you’ll probably still be somewhere close by from the night before!

Defiant Duck – Classic Cheeseburger

3/84 Longland St, Newstead QLD 4006

108A3848 (1)

Defiant Duck is a place I’ve only known to exist recently, and I've already been there MORE than a handful of times.  There’s a pretty good range of American and bar food here, along with a massive list of craft beers for some old fashioned 'hair of the dog' treatment. But when pondering over what to order you can’t go past the classic cheeseburger – Jack's cheddar cheese, pickles, mustard and ketchup. Now what we love about Defiant Duck is you can add extra beef patties for $4, so don’t be afraid to stack that bad boy up until it touches the roof!

Longboards – Mini Phat

Q1 Resort & Spa, Hamilton Ave & Northcliffe Terrace, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217


I’d suggest the full phat bastard burger, but considering you’re coming off a big night then maybe try his little brother. If it's one of your mate's birthdays, or you’re just feeling spontaneous, you might find yourself having a wild night down the coast. And what's worse than waking up the next day, not knowing where to eat and ending up at one of those all day breakfast buffets? Well your prayers have been answered, because Longboards are serving up the Mini Phat – Wagyu beef, streaky bacon, BBQ puled pork, chedder cheese and onion rings smothered in sweet baby rays BBQ sauce. Not ideal for your beach body, so don't be planning a dip in the beach straight afterwards!

Zepickle – Double Double

1 Prospect St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006


Now I’ve had this burger multiple times, and I can tell you right now this thing does not disappoint! Make sure you bring an appetite, because the double hand pressed wagyu beef patties, double Jack cheese & double maple smoked bacon will have you wondering if you should be getting your mates to call 000 for ya.

Bettys Burgers – Bettys Classic Stack

Chevron Renaissance Shopping Centre, 12-14/3240 Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise QLD 4217


I don’t know what it is but there’s something great about burgers down the coast. It might be the atmosphere or it might be the beach vibes – but then again it might be the gruyere cheese literally melting away in your mouth as you devour one of the best burgers we’ve ever tried. Make sure if you’re dining here you get the classic stack, it really is a burger you won’t forget! The Portabello Mushroom burger is also out of this world - more than suitable for your vego friends!

Southside Diner – South Side Bacon Cheeseburger

Shop B8/B9 168 Grey St, South Brisbane QLD 4101


A hero amongst the list, the South Side Double Bacon Cheeseburger is sure to please. Unlike the others I reckon there’s a good chance you haven’t been here yet, and with South Bank rising quick with great places to eat, make sure you don’t miss Southside Diner. There’s a huge selection of food here and a great vintage cocktail list that should require your exploring!

Red Hook – Grandmaster Flash Burger

3/88 Creek St, CBD QLD 4000


The Grand Master flash burger is the cornerstone to any nutritious breakfast! I know I’m quoting the great Jules Winnfield, but I’m not joking about this burger. I’ve seen Red Hook update their menu many times, but there’s one thing that’s stayed true and that’s the Grandmaster. oh and I have to mention the wings (but that can be for another list).
