It all started here. In this decrepit 1920s building on Brunswick Street, New Farm. Known as ‘The Avalon’, it was an abode to a motley crew of artists, prostitutes, gentry and drug dealers.
Fast forward 90 years and this bohemian dwelling became the home to our first hole in the wall burger shop.
No one does it quite like us. Known for our out of the box approach to just about everything, we pride ourselves on making delicious burgers that are also good for you.
Most importantly we believe in using only the freshest, premium, free range produce sourced from local Aussie farmers.
Ten years on, and a few million burgers later, our approach hasn’t changed. We’ve always been a little different, and that’s just the way we like it!
A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE...
This is the part where we are supposed to talk about fluffy, feel good things, but our approach to life is pretty straightforward.
We make great burgers and have a lot of fun doing it.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously – you won’t find any cravats in our kitchens!
Sometimes we ruffle a few feathers and sometimes we’re a bit left field.
One thing is certain – our burgers are good. Dangerously Good.
SUPPORTING AUSSIE FARMERS
SUPPORTING AUSSIE FARMERS
Supporting Aussie Farmers is a Burger Urge initiative designed to offer financial support to farmers and farming communities in need.
Each year, we set targets and complete fundraising initiatives through our network of restaurants, the proceeds of which are donated to four different areas of farming that we identify as needing help.
WINTER 2017 APPEAL
Our Winter 2017 Appeal will support Aussie farmers in drought.
Cattle and sheep farmers in Western and Central QLD have been doing it tough for most of the last two decades. Ongoing drought has caused the death of hundreds of thousands of livestock, leaving farming families with no income and struggling mentally.
In June, July and August, Burger Urge will be donating 40 cents of every cheeseburger sold across the network to Buy a Bale, a not-for-profit charity that delivers fodder to farmers with no feed left for their livestock.
Our target this season is to raise enough money to purchase three semi trailers of hay for the rural families that need it the most.
BUY A BALE
Buy a Bale is a not-for-profit charity program run by Rural Aid.
Established in 2015, Rural Aid’s primary purpose is to relieve the poverty, illness, distress and disadvantage of farming individuals and families whose primary production businesses have been affected by natural disasters.
For more information or to donate, visit www.buyabale.com.au
A small bale of hay costs only $20 to purchase. Every dollar counts!
