1. Meat Stack 

Now with two locations in the city, Meat Stack’s freshly ground salt-aged beef is what makes them so delicious. They also make all their own relishes and sauces which bring the burgers to life. Once you’ve had one of these you may never be able to look at other burgers in the same way again.

3. Red’s True Barbecue

They call themselves “the church of true barbecue” and it’s hard to argue with that statement. Expect lots of slow cooked meats and sharing style platters, while the flame grilled burgers are bursting with flavour and they keep the toppings simple with bacon and cheese. An absolute killer burger.

Gotta say I can’t agree with this list like. I’ve been living in Newcastle for years and Meat Stack is definitely not up to standard, their burgers are pretty small and honestly a bit greasy.
