Sometimes you feel like some good basic food, something like a hamburger. I’ve been before to Grill’d at Crows Nest (with multiple other locations), serving interesting hamburger combinations, and decided to get back there. The hamburgers are full of fresh, healthy ingredients, and the herbed fries tasty.
What’s on the menu?
Here are some of the burgers on the menu, including beef, chicken, lamb and vegetarian:
- Almighty: grilled 100% lean beef, tasty cheese, crispy trim bacon, free range egg, a couple of slices of beetroot with salad, relish and herbed mayo
- Tuscan Delight: grilled chicken breast, roasted peppers, basil pesto, tasty cheese, salad and herbed mayo
- Baa Baa Burger: grilled lean lamb pattie with avocado, tasty cheese, salad, relish and herbed mayo
- Bombay Bliss: premium quality chickpea pattie with roasted peppers, tzatziki, salad and relish
They also serve salads for the times when you don’t want a hamburger.
What we ate
Last time I had the Zen Hen hamburger: grilled chicken breast with tangy satay sauce, coriander, shredded carrot, salad and herbed mayo:
There was lots of carrot, and the satay sauce is gentle, not overpowering, just adding to the mixture of flavours.
The buns are quality, light, and satisfying. You can choose to have a panini bun, the traditional (a wholemeal blend) with or without sesame seeds, or a gluten-free bun.
Their fries are thick-cut, crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle. They’re advertised as being cooked in low-cholesterol oil. They’re served herbed, and you can also order freshly made dipping sauces such as sweet chili mayo or herbed mayo.
There are plenty of tables inside and out. We sat out today, watching the world go by. Fun watching the people of all shapes and sizes and ages go by.
My choice for today was the Back Bar steak sandwich: grilled scotch fillet, crispy trim bacon, rocket, feta, tomato, spanish onion, tomato relish, herbed mayo on ciabatta::
Here’s how it looked inside:
Very tasty. I think I’d like any of the burgers served there, with the interesting, fresh ingredients. Serves are large, and I’ve wondered if their mini-burgers may even be big enough, especially with a serve of fries.
Sure, you could call this fast food, just because it’s burgers, but it’s a cut above, with fresh ingredients, flavourful, good-sized portions. Grill’d does satisfy the urge for a good burger.

Where do you go when you feel the need for a good hamburger?
mmm i love the fries at grill’d!
oh yes! some of the best fries around. love potato and rosemary.
I’ve been on a bit of a burger blitz at home – so easy if you make your own patties and freeze. I slathered over some leftover gorgonzola the other day – zomg so amazingly good.
Gorgonzola would be faaabulous.
I’m determined to keep trying Grill’d fries until I figure out each & every secret ingredient…love them. I normally have a Mini-Moo burger, with gherkin. It’s big enough, with a side of fries. LOVE Grill’d.
Ah, that’s good to hear about the Mini-Moo burger. I had suspected it would be enough. Trying to keep figuring out the secret herbs on the fries is a good excu… no, reason to keep going back 🙂
You know, in spite of all of the wonderfully sophisticated food us bloggers get to try, sometimes you just want a plain old burger. Looks delicious! If I ever wander up that way I’ll give it a try 🙂
Yes, sometimes it’s good to get back to the basics. Oh so many places to try!
