There is a banging burger joint in town that we can all eat at without anyone having to sacrifice on flavour – yeehaa! 

Main St Burger Bar really does have it all, my flavour-loving friends, with burgers piled high with flavour, local produce and, did I mention, flavour!

It takes care and commitment to stay true to your beliefs in the food business, particularly in a small town where sourcing free-range and organic produce in volume is no easy task. And yep, you can really taste this commitment all the way through the menu here!

Hand on my flavour-loving heart, the Southern Fried Spicy Chicken Burger, with house slaw and smoked chipotle mayo, is the most epic fried chicken burger I’ve ever had, and I do mean ever! Some of my other favs on the menu are the nourishing and oh-so-healthy Energy Bowl with coconut and lime jackfruit piled high with quinoa and turmeric brown rice, roasted capsicums, curly kale and a bunch of other belly-happy goodness, and the beyond epic Double Trouble burger that stopped me in my tracks and had me happily giggling with glee with each bite.

If you’re looking for a cheeky and clever burger and beer–food pairing, the crew at Main Street Burger Bar have done all the hard work for you! Offering an epic list of food and beer matching with local brewing legends Yulla’s Brews, with beers named Slick Rick, Strawberry Dolly, and Sea Bass you just know you’re in for a good time!

The owners at Main St Burger Bar are not only committed to bringing big flavours to our plates, but also to using products that are environmentally friendly recently working with Waste Warriors to source compostable greaseproof paper, and takeaway boxes ensuring most of their waste is compostable… LEGENDS! Ah, and of course this environmentally conscious crew only using paper straws too, YAY!

If you are with the kids or just feel like being a big kid, you really need to get amongst the shakes (BTW you can also add booze to your shakes for $6 – yes really you can!). My current fav is the OG Vanilla and Malt with the rim of the glass encased in hundreds and thousands – you really can be a big a kid again at any age!

Yep, I really do feel like our palates and our planet are in safe hands with the crew at Main St Burger Bar.

Open from 11.30am each day for lunch and dinner.
