Your new favourite summer takeaway
While it's only been open just a few months, the St Kilda Burger Bar (STKBB) is St Kilda's fastest spreading secret for this summer.

Head down St Kilda's Brighton Road, just next to the the Grosvenor Hotel until you get to their drive thru bottle shop and inside you'll find exactly where all the magic happens (yes, in the drive through of the bottle shop.)

The first of its kind to be situated in a pub drive through in Melbourne, the STKBB offers up a range of burgers, including the Mr Fun Guy for vegetarians and a gluten free bun option too.

All the beef burgers are made with hand pressed patties using only 100 per cent certified grass fed Angus beef sourced locally from Gippsland.

You'll spot the signs on St Kilda's Brighton Road from 3pm. Just drive on in to STKBB.


Cleverly located next to the bottle shop, it's a great place to pop in and grab a drink to go with your burger. Rumour has it the sizeable craft beer selection offers up some pretty well paired bevvies.

We pop in to suss out the menu and Head Chef Paul Tyas gave us the low down on the burgers which reflect the no-fuss burgers we all grew up loving from the local fish and chip shops. They're delicious but not too clever for their own good and the ingredients are sourced locally.

We tried their signature burger – The Grosvenor – featuring Chef's grandma's ketchup recipe and a ridiculous amount of deliciousness that isn't too heavy or greasy. In fact, these burgers are the 'oil running down your wrist' kind of burgers at all. Don't get us wrong, you'll need two hands to eat them, but you certainly wont finish your meal feeling like you've eaten a brick.

The Grosvenor includes beef, streaky bacon, shed sauce, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles and a delicious sauce.

We also tried the popular Gatwick Roadhouse burger with beef, beetroot and red onion jam, pineapple, cheese, ketchup and mayo.

The menu also features the must have sides of chips and onion rings you'd expect to find as well as kids sized burgers too.

There's also an atypical dessert menu that include apple pie from Johnny Rip in Red Hill as well as a peanut butter and jam ice cream sandwich made in true gourmet fashion or the Saint's Halo (similar to the wagon wheel treats of your childhood) with marshmallow, raspberry jam and chocolate biscuit.

From time to time, you'll also find guest burgers on the menu, keeping the STKBB always serving up something new.

While it's best suited for takeaway, we suggest hopping onto their website and pre-ordering to grab your order on the go. And if your a fan of the hot sauce that's served on the The Plugger burger, the great news is that you can pop inside the bottle shop and grab a bottle to take home as well (along with about 150 other local sourced groceries). These include the essentials such as milk from St David's, Lievito bread, and 7 Apples gelato to ready-to-heat and serve meals prepared by Head Chef Paul Tyas, along with Grosvenor Hotel's very own aged grass fed beef.

What a great idea to have this at the drive thru. I hope there will be more of them soon.
