There's just one burger on the menu at this Nashville hot chicken joint - the Fat Belly Burger with southern fried chicken breast, pickles, oak lettuce on a milk bun. Those with a big appetite can add crinkle cut fries, creamed corn, Memphis slaw, mac n cheese or bacon fried greens to have on the side. The restaurant is licenced.

7. Charboys Burgers, Brisbane City
288 Edward st, Brisbane City
Charboys started at the West End markets and now they serve American roadside-style burgers from a funky shipping container in the city. Their most popular burger is the Queenslander, which has southern fried chicken, grilled pineapple, and bacon. Or try the Carnivore which comes stacked with a Wagyu beef patty, fried chicken and bacon. All are served with a signature sauce, made with whole-egg mayonnaise and spice.
6. Benz on Miller, Murrarie
1/57 Miller St, Murrarie
A small joint big on flavour with owner Ben Kirk serving up American-style burgers with house-made patties, hot dogs and twice cooked fries. Kirk says his most popular order is The Hick which is a southern fried chicken burger with bacon, cheese, confit garlic aioli, lettuce topped with his own Benz barbecue sauce.

5. Ze Pickle, Fortitude Valley
1 Prospect St, Fortitude Valley
First coming to popularity with their Burleigh Heads outlet, this eatery pays homage to the classic American takeaway, while being unafraid to experiment. Juices will be dripping down your arms with their Triple Loco boasting three wagyu patties, triple cheese, triple maple bacon, pulled pork, jalapeños, fried onion straws and slaw served between two grilled cheese sandwiches. For those with less of a hunger, there's chicken burgers, classic beef options and vego numbers.

4. Getta Burger, Carina
1396 Creek Rd, Carina
When size matters, turn to the American-inspired Getta Burger. With outlets now across Brisbane, the original Carina venue is still the favourite, adored for its monstrous bun creations that promise more fillings than a dental surgery. Expect the likes of the Getta Lot with a beef patty, bacon, double cheese, grilled onions, tomato, lettuce on a milk bun, alongside pulled pork and beef brisket burgers, plus chicken, vego and vegan options.

3. Beardy's Bar and Kitchen, Kippa-Ring (Tied third)
405 Elizabeth Ave, Kippa-Ring
