Burger Foundry


After trying a number of burger places around Adelaide, not so long ago we decided to try Burger Foundry at Magill.

We had heard that it was best to order via phone first as it can take a while for your order to be completed due to their specialty being hand crafted burgers. We ordered at 7:00pm, there we 4 burgers and chips in our order. We were advised a 30-45min wait, so we decided to arrive at 7:45pm.

There were only two people waiting in the shop, so we presumed that our order wouldnt take long. By 8:00pm, they mentioned there was a back log of orders. We noticed that there wasnt anyone cooking in the back in the 15 mins in the shop. Also the two employees at the front of the shop seemed to just be on their phones waiting for the burger patties to come to the front to “hand craft” the meals.

By 8:15pm, we finally saw someone come to the back to start cooking our burgers. 5 minutes later we were advised that there were no potatoes left to make chips. We noticed right behind the employee were potatoes stacked in a bowl! We said cant you just cut those ones up? They were not allowed to. We werent offered any free items such as drinks for the inconvinience.

By 8:45pm, our burgers were finally packed and ready for us to take away. We drove past McDonalds’ with was 100m away and bought chips and went home.

The burgers were ok, not the best burgers we have had in Adelaide. I guess by 2 hours after we ordered, we were too hungry to worry about reviewing the food.
