Slim’s Quality Burger CBD
Aussies have always loved meat (or veggie substitutes) sandwiched between two buns, but Slim's Quality Burger is here to bring back the burger craze days in a big way.
Founded by three former ex-Betty’s Burgers staff, Slim’s Quality Burger first opened in Marrickville then Mount Druitt—and now it's in the CBD, folks. If you were praying for a new greasy lunchtime spot, consider your pleas received.
Somewhat similar to Betty’s, Slim’s founders—Michael Tripp, Nik Rollison, and David Hales—have eschewed the fad of OTT, doughnut-topped and made-for-Instagram burgers of yesteryear in favour of no-frills burgs and sides. But they've ditched Betty’s pastel-hued Shake Shack vibes for nods to classic 50s and 60s American diner culture—think cherry red banquettes, baby blue tiles, an open kitchen, and bright neon signage.
There are 11 burgers, ranging from the classic cheeseburger to five chicken options and a vegetarian one with a plant-based patty. In terms of the house-cut fries, you can expect them fried to order, and you can also get them loaded with molten cheese, onion, and topped with smoked maple bacon. There’s also a garden salad should you want some semblance of health. Plus, you can get three different sundaes and a plain ice cream scoop, as well as sodas, thickshakes, and the old-school classic sip, spiders.
It's conveniently located in the Westfield Sydney shopping centre, so you can head in for top-quality burgers, loaded chippies, and hot fudge sundaes between meetings, shopping frenzies, and errand runs.
Slim's Quality Burger is now open in the CBD as well as Marrickville and Mount Druitt.
