Hudsons – The Burger Joint
Hudsons burger patties are some of the best there is – that range from 180g to 250g of awesomeness. Their beef burgers are made using free veld fed beef and are served medium rare to unlock the flavour. Try their Badass burger which includes two juicy beef patties, each stuffed with habanero chilli, topped with jalapeño jam, white onion & cheddar. 4th Ave & 14th St, Parkhurst, Randburg.
Turn ’n Tender
The burgers at Turn ’n Tender are superb, without trying to be gourmet or fiddly. They arrive in manageable portions made with good-quality products, and are served with excellent, crispy potato chips on the side. Speciality options include the smoked mozzarella and biltong burger as well as their tremendous Jack Daniels treat; stuffed with onions, chilli and some good marmalade.
At Burger Republic, every burger is crafted with care – right from the brioche buns down to their special selection of house sauces, beef patties and cheese. They’re more than just about great food though. The restaurant also offers a tranquil and relaxing in-door setting – where you can enjoy a grand meal and a great conversation. Their staff is also very friendly.
And the people’s faves are….
