Definitely the place to go if you’re craving an old-school Australian cheeseburger. This Australian restaurant, sitting in Albert Park has been selling huge burgers for almost 70 years now. Andrew’s surely likes to tell their customers to use both their hands if they really want the juicy experience that comes with it. Each burger comes with the onions cooked, the bread buns carefully toasted, a crunchy lettuce and a fried egg properly cooked throughout. The burgers come with a mouthwatering stack of beef with a cooked onion that maintains the juiciness of the freshly made burger. With add-ons of double cheese, bacon and tomato ketchup, Andrew’s surely deserves our salute.
