Five Points Burgers is a bit of a sensation rocking the suburb in North Sydney and giving them office crowds the taste of hot beef, oozey cheese and crispy bacon. We dread our hike up Walker Street fearing the snaking queues that are now legendary. We turn the corner and oh, a queue of 4-5. Thank you maybe Rain. So yes, our pic of the 5 points doorway has nominally no body in it. At 1pm. We’re already happy. That said once inside, there’s heaps of people milling around waiting for there food and yes, one woman walked out with 2 bags with about 10 burgers in each (so so thankful we didn’t stand behind her in a queue) so there’s limited venue pics. If you can score a seat, you’re lucky.
whattt no queues?!?
Salted Caramel Shake $6. Not the biggest but really quite on point and icy cold. Quite rate this. Most places call their “salted caramel” milkshake well, that… but in reality it’ll taste like a somewhat weak milkshake and this nailed it.
Double Bronx. $12.50 + 3 (extra patties are $3 here) It’s a well priced extra patty and the burger looks amazing. You’ll note the oozy cheese, that crispy bacon and the bits of iceberg greens on there. It’s a sexy, sexy looking burger with that drippy cheese and it tasted as good as it looks. Savoury, packed full of flavour with the picles, mustard, ketchup and aioli. Its a real meat lovers burger and a flavour bomb. Juicy Moistness.
Double Manhattan. $10+3. Beef, Cheese, Ketchup, Aioli, Mustard, Pickles and Iceberg. The bacon and onion jam is gone from this to make the double Manhattan. Also an appealing burger which we loved.
Five Points also has a Queens burger (Chicken Breast) – that we didn’t see anyone order and a Staten Island (Vegetarian/Portobello). And in the event, you haven’t quite picked up on it; the burgers are named about NYC burbs. Sydney’s burger wars has a real contender.
