Mary's Melbourne

Melbourne gets its very own 'slash and slay' burger bar


Time Out says

You've heard of Mary's, the rowdy, rock 'n' roll dive bar that's home to Sydney's most famous burger. Even if you haven't been to Sydney in the last ten years, you've probably heard of these burgers. If you recall, Mary's even briefly supplied Fancy Free with a menu while it had a home on Little Collins Street.

But lo and behold, Melbourne finally has its very own Mary's. 

Stumble to Franklin Street to find Mary's self-proclaimed 'fat delights' from the original, Newtown menu of fried chook, the Mary's burger, cheeseburger, mushroom burger and mash with gravy.

There are also a few vegan items (think bean-based patties, dairy-free cheese and vegan gravy) and Melbourne-specific dishes to keep our offering a little more diverse than the Sydney original. Add to that a 100-plus strong wine list put together by Mary's group sommelier Caitlyn Rees for your next big hangover. Not a hard task, considering Mary's is open seven nights a week. 


167 Franklin Street
Opening hours:
Mon-Thu 4pm-1am; Fri-Sun noon-1am
