Hello Harry opened its first burger joint at Maroochydore in Queensland in 2014. It can now be found in NSW, Victoria and South Australia. Hello Harry at Union Street in Adelaide CBD is the first branch of this chain of burger joints in Adelaide. The selection of burgers offered at this burger joint covers a wide range of options, from familiar favourites to more unique offerings for the adventurous.
The Crispy Pork Belly Burger that we ordered had strips of pork belly that were juicy. The pork belly was grilled slightly to give them a bit of crispiness. The generous amount of sticky soy sauce gave the burger an Asian flavour, with the wombok (a type of Chinese cabbage) adding some extra texture. Balancing the saltiness of the soy sauce was creamy mayonnaise, which notably included some mint.

As its name suggests, their Maple Bacon Burger included maple bacon to impart a distinctive smoky taste with a hint of sweetness to the burger. The beef patty that formed a key part of the burger was well-done with a succulent interior and had a good degree of char-grilled flavour. Completing the dishes were pickles and mustard to provide a sharp flavour and tomato jam for a bit of a sweet taste.

One of the burgers classified as a pulled meat burger, the Texan Brisket Burger had pulled beef that was cooked just right, with a smoky taste imparted by the sticky BBQ sauce it was marinated in. Partnering nicely with the beef was green apple coleslaw.

For something other than the usual chips to go with your burger, there is the Zucchini Fries. The zucchini still had a bit of bite to them and was contrasted wonderfully by the restaurant's special crumb coating. Served with the dish was honey mustard to add some tanginess. Take care when eating them as they come steaming hot and remain so for a while.

Also making use of the special crumb coating, their Onion Rings was of a size that made eating them a satisfying experience. They had the slightly sweet flavour that we like and were sprinkled with powder that had a delectable garlicky flavour. Though tasty enough on its own, aioli was provided to add more flavour.

The restaurant had a casual and relaxed ambience. Its location off Rundle Street makes it a convenient place for shoppers in the CBD to stop by for a snack or a meal.
