Hey, burger fans…did you know that this week, Wednesday in fact, is International Cheeseburger Day?
The granddaddy of all burgs, and a potent symbol of the allure of post-WWII capitalism, there are few things as satisfying and delicious as a perfectly cooked cheeseburger!
We certainly love our “cheesies’ here in Newcastle, so in that spirit where are our suggestions for the best places to celebrate International Cheeseburger Day.
Treat yo self!
148 Parry St, Newcastle West
We are beyond stoked that this awesome eatery is back one the scene after being gutted by fire back in June last year.
And like a phoenix, The Edwards has well and truly risen from those ashes and their cheeseburger is a shining example of that fact.
Dubbed the Eddie’s Burger, the Edwards concoction – course ground beef, double cheese, iceberg lettuce, onion, tomato, aoli, and mustard is an absolute cheesy delight!
13 Darby St, Newcastle
Known for its freakishly large burgers and shakes, this hip-hop inspired eatery is able to dial it back a tad when it counts and it always counts when it comes to cheeseburgers.
Their entry-level Milky Lane burger (Wagyu Beef Pattie, Double American Cheese, Butter Lettuce, Pickles, Diced Onions, Sliced Tomato, ML Sauce, ML Ketchup) is maybe the littlest kid on the Milky Lane block but it sure as heck packs a flavour punch.
1/266 King St, Newcastle
While the tagline of this popular haunt is “burgers, chicken, anarchy,” Rascal also does a fine line in cheeseburgers, too.
While these guys are definitely fans of crazy burger concoctions (just check out their weekly specials), their cheeseburger is exactly what it should be – simple, well-balanced flavours and, most importantly, fresh!
Newy Burger Co
459 Hunter St, Newcastle
One of the elder burger statesmen on this list, Newy Burgo Co has been satiating Novocastrians’ need for well-cooked ‘steamed hams’ for some time now, and we hope that continues for some time to come.
This writer always orders the cheeseburger on any maiden voyage to a new burger joint (because hey, if theu can’t make a cheeseburger, how the hell are they going to do anything even slightly more elaborate, right?).
Suffice to say that the quality of this cheeseburger, dubbed The Newy, that it is always my go-to!
It should be yours, too!
You can’t really write about cheeseburgers without mentioning this juggernaut of fast food.
Sure, they RARELY look like the pictures and they are a far cry from the version that made Maccas a global force of fast-food domination, but there is something satisfying about biting into one of these babies at King Street after a heavy night out on the town.
We’ve all been there!
To celebrate the auspicious day, McDonald’s is getting in on the act by offering cheeseburgers for just $1 via the MyMaccas app.
