The verdict

Mr Griffith’s doesn’t mess about; its website smacks you between the eyes with the promise of ‘Beer. Burgers. Poutine’. In that order. And that’s pretty much what you get at this Kensington eatery on the buzzing Macauly Rd strip. Griffith’s is the up-beat brainchild of burger-obsessive Davydd Griffiths (go figure), the man responsible for transforming the Flemington & Kensington Bowls Club into a craft beer sanctuary, where white-bearded regulars rub shoulder with trendy-bearded hipsters. Now he’s turned his attention to cheese, meat, beer and all things fried to a crisp.

Burger and a pint will set you back around $20, which is pretty standard these days, and there are three beers on tap: Western City Brewing’s Footscray Ale (a solid choice), Moon Dog’s Love Tap Lager and a rotating mystery tap where anything is possible (as long as that thing is beer). For food there’s a long list of drool-worthy goodness to terrify your arteries. We’d recommend the classic Drummondville poutine (fries, house-made cheese curds and gravy) followed by the Buffalo Chicken Burger (buttermilk chook, fried to perfection, with hot sauce, ranch and lettuce). Pro tip: leave the skinny jeans at home.
