While the Melbourne burger scene is known to serve up some pretty damn delicious stacks, we are finally getting the opportunity to sink our teeth into some of the world’s most hyped burgers—Five Guys

The cult-followed burger chain has already cemented itself in the Sydney community and now it's time for Melbourne's time in the sun with a brand spanking 79-seat diner opening up on Southbank this coming Monday 8 August. 

"We have been searching many years to find our first Victorian site, and know the location of our first store is fantastic in the bustling Southbank region," says Robby Adronikos, Five Guys Brand Manager 

If you’re not yet acquainted with this U.S-based burger chain, Five Guys is known for two things: burgers and fries. But these burgers are unlike anything you’ll find at a typical fast-food joint. Five Guys operate on a “no freezer” promise—their brioche buns are freshly grilled, the ground beef patties are shaped by hand and their hand-cut chips are fried on demand, skin-on and straight to your table.

The burgers are customisable from staple hamburgers to the bacon cheeseburger with over 15 free toppings including pickles, jalapenos, grilled mushrooms and more. You can also opt for their all-beef hot dogs with the added option of melted American-style cheese; and creamy, customisable shakes that you can jazz up with mix-ins like crispy bacon, real bananas, fresh strawberries, or cold-brewed coffee made daily in-store.

There'll be plenty more details to spill once Five Guys open up, so stay tuned for more.
