3rd. JB’s Corner

Results: 20/30

JB’s Corner has a fantastic selection of burgers and you’re bound to find something there, no matter your preference. Dig into their Dagwood burger (their tribute to the roadhouse burger); an Old Fashioned Cheese Burger; Gorgonzola, Bacon & Avo burger or their Brie, Bacon & Red Onion Marmalade burger. Our panel rated these burgers as top notch and we’d definitely go back! Their ingredients are of excellent quality and the portion sizes aren’t bad! We also loved that you can order their burgers in two sizes – the baby wow (100g no coleslaw) or the wow (200g).

2nd. Burgerville

Results: 22/30

This 1950s diner has fabulous decor and delicious burgers to boot! We loved the classic American-style burgers on their menu – and there’s just so much to choose from! Dig into favourites like Cheese and Pine, Blue Cheese, Bacon and Cheese and much more. They’ve also got a fantastic selection of gourmet milkshakes on their menu. Our panel loved their burgers and thought they were the perfect burger to satisfy a good ‘ol fashioned burger craving. Burgerville’s burgers are juicy, tasty, and great value for money.

1st. Dukes

Results: 26/30

There’s just no denying it - Dukes is THE best burger joint in Jozi. Their burgers are second to none, and their offering won hands down with our panel of hungry judges. Dig into favourites like the Hola Amigo (hearty beef patty, tomato relish topped with cheesy nachos, tomato coriander salsa & a dollop of guacamole with cucumber ribbons); Mrs Balls (Lean Lamb Burger topped with chunky apricot chutney, grilled feta cheese, sauteéd onions & cucumber ribbons); or the Uncle Sam (Hearty Beef patty topped with our famous tomato relish, gherkin & cucumber ribbons).

The quality of ingredients used is like no other, and their portion sizes are more than generous. All their burgers are 200g served on a bed of greens and their famous tomato relish with a choice of sweet potato wedges, potato wedges, French fries or salad.

I''m not sure when you conducted this review but Burgerville has CLOSED DOWN !!! I suggest removing them and adding number 4...

If you decide to try this exercise again I suggest you add Olivia''s in Northcliff to your list. From their home made patties to their delicious fries, I have yet to taste better.
