      I presume you are from Berala. I grew up in Lidcombe. How come you have never found egg on Australian burgers. I sooo miss these great burgers now living in US 5 years!

    I really wanted to love this burger as I LOVE all the components. However, the beets didn't add anything! The grilled onions and the egg though were delicious. I am proud to say my burgers looked exactly like the ones in the picture. Yay!

    This burger is the best ever. Beetroot is a must on any burger. As an Aussie living in Canada for a few years I truly missed this. However, I was travelling through Alaska and stopped at a roadhouse. I ordered a burger and you can imagine my response when the lady asked me if I wanted beetroot with that!!!!! I almost kissed her. You find gems in the most obscure places. Beetroot... I love you.

    As an Aussie grill cook, I can tell you a 'burger with the lot' or 'the works' is (working from the bottom up) bun bottom, lettuce, tomato, beets, ground beef, onions, pineapple slice, egg, bacon, bbq sauce, sliced cheese, top bun. This is the roadhouse type of burger.

    Hi from an Aussie living in Canada for 12 months. This burger is very close to the ones I grew up with and serve at home. However we also add bacon and a slice of canned pineapple. In Oz this is called a "burger with the lot"!
