Hopper's Motorcycle Meet-up

It’s #ThrowbackThursday so we wanted to take the time to look back to the weekends we spent getting to know our local motorcycle enthusiasts. On back-to-back weekends of Feb 27th & March 6th, we held an event at our Hopper’s Crossing location to get involved with the Melbourne Motorcycle Communities.

It was great fun getting to meet & hang out with Melbourne Street Riders (website), the biggest motorcycle community in Melbourne, and our local North/West community MNW Riders (FB group). Everyone had a great time trying out the Wheelie Machine, provided by Wheelie Machines Australia (website) & we appreciate them for taking the time to come out.


Burgers, Bikes & Music, what could be better? It’s not wonder that the house was packed! We wanted to thank everyone for coming out & showing us such a great time, we look forward to doing something again soon.


Earth Hour 2021


You may have seen us showcasing a few of our environmentally-conscious and sustainable practices this week. Here at Burgies, we take our responsibility to the environment very seriously. We have always strived towards environmentally-friendly practices and to reduce our carbon footprint. We felt this was a perfect time for us to emphasize the importance of these practices.

This year’s theme for Earth Hour 2021 is #SwitchForNature, which is encouraging the switch to more environmentally-friendly options. This is a great cause and one we have always been drawn to. We made the switch last year to renewable solar energy, which now powers the majority of our business. On top of that, our packaging does not use any virgin paper, is all 100% recyclable & our indoor dining areas are designed with up-cycled decor. While it’s very difficult for a business to operate with zero emissions, we aim to do our best and we are very proud of what we have accomplished. But we won’t stop there, we are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

Here in Australia, more than 80% of our flowering plants, mammals, reptiles, frogs and almost 50% of our birds aren’t found anywhere else on Earth. Our country is home to incredible native species and environments, like the Great Barrier Reef, so who wouldn’t want to preserve our country’s identity?

For Earth Hour this year, we will be taking steps to reduce electricity usage from 8:30 to 9:30, and if you are doing the same, we want to thank you from the bottom of our heart for doing your part.

Much Love, the Burgies fam


House-made Three Cheese Sauce

We are very proud of our Three Cheese Sauce. It’s unlike any other offered, and everything about it represents our dedication to quality at Burgies.

We have yet to find a cheese sauce being offered on the market that isn’t made with processed cheese. This is because making a sauce out of a non-processed cheese, without artificial preservatives and emulsifiers takes a lot of effort & finesse. We believe the results are well worth the effort, which is why when we designed our Burgies Menu, we put months into perfecting our cheese sauce recipe. This R&D definitely paid off, because we are incredibly proud of the end result.

Our sauce is made with a secret three-cheese blend, each cheese being of very high quality and aged for over a year before going in our sauce. Unlike the typical neon-orange, processed “cheese” sauce, we are sure that you will agree, our House-Made Sauce tastes is knocking it out of the park in the flavor department.

Our Sauce is made fresh at least twice daily, for lunch and dinner, so we can ensure the quality & consistency of each batch. During our late rush hours, we will often make a third batch of cheese sauce, to be certain of the freshness. You can find our sauce served with our Waffle Cheese Fries, our Dripping Chicken Burgie, or served separately for whatever you want to enjoy it with.

In the air tonight

At Burgies, we are constantly listening to our customers for their feedback. We aim to keep adapting and growing to meet the customer’s needs, so when we heard that our customers were wanting for a little more ‘atmosphere’, we knew that something needed to be done.

It was clear to us that our outdoor seating spaces needed a sprucing-up. We wanted our customers to be met with a warm, welcoming glow when they sat down with their meals, so to accomplish this, we decided to revamp our space with festoon lighting, which has created the perfect effect we were after.

Having recently completed the installation at our Campbellfield location, and due to the positive feedback, we decided a retouch of our Hopper’s Crossing location was in order. Have a night at Burgies to experience our new and improved outdoor dining experience!
