6. Jerry’s Café (Benoni)
Jerry’s Café is a restaurant well known for its diverse menu and an overall what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of atmosphere. Like the restaurant, their burgers are divine.

The café/restaurant’s flavoursome cheese and avocado burger is simply undefeated.

5. Hudsons – The Burger Joint (Bedfordview)
Hudsons burger patties are some of the best there is – that range from 180g to 250g of awesomeness. Their beef burgers are made using free veld fed beef and are served medium rare to unlock the flavour. Try their Badass burger which includes two juicy beef patties, each stuffed with habanero chilli, topped with jalapeño jam, white onion and cheddar.
Corner Skeen Boulevard and Hawley Road, Bedfordview
Turn ’n Tender (Boksburg)
The burgers at Turn ’n Tender are superb, without trying to be gourmet or fiddly. They arrive in manageable portions made with good-quality products, and are served with excellent, crispy potato chips on the side. Speciality options include the smoked mozzarella and biltong burger as well as their tremendous Jack Daniels treat; stuffed with onions, chilli and some good marmalade.

At Burger Republic, every burger is crafted with care – right from the brioche buns down to their special selection of house sauces, beef patties and cheese.

Their staff is also quite friendly.
