Say hello to the best gourmet burgers on the Sunshine Coast
Well hello there, and welcome to the Sunshine Coast's latest and greatest burger joint. Ocean Street, Maroochydore has a new favourite hang out - may I present to you Hello Harry. There's no doubt in my mind, this place is set to become the next big thing in burgers on the Coast.

You know what I love about this place? It's so simple. I used to think Grill'd (just over the road at Sunshine Plaza). Don't be put off by the simple menu - it's hard to go wrong with the choices available. My burger of choice is the free range chicken with local avocado, slaw and mayo. Coleslaw is something I usually try to avoid, it bring back bad memories of what they serve up at KFC. But Hello Harry really nails it - it's very crispy and really compliments the burger. All burgers as well come in at a very reasonable $10.

Have I mentioned the buns yet? These bad boys deserve a special mention. They're so soft, honestly it may have been my favourite part of the experience. My dining companion compared it to the burger buns you get in America, just without all that sugar. Another friend of mine compared it to a croissant. And as with any burger joint, there's got to be some sides! I opted for the chips on my first visit, and I was not disappointed. It was a very generous serving also. My dining companion and I managed to share one serve between us. That combined with the burger made for a satisfying meal. If chips aren't your thing, then you're in luck with the option of crispy onion rings, chopped salad and slaw. Each are only $5 and will compliment your burger of choice beautifully. If that's not enough to fill you up, there's also a selection of shakes made by the chefs ($7) and desserts ($10).

If I've yet to convince you to at least stick your head in, here's another big reason you should dine in or take away. One of the owners, Tony Kelly, is a master of food. Previously he's been executive chef and part over of the Coast's 2006 restaurant of the year, The Wine Bar Restaurant. If his name's on it, you know it's going to be good.
