Beat’s Burgers of Melbourne: JD’s Burgers


When was JD’s Burgers born? Daniel came back from three years of travel in Asia, and one day, just thought, ‘Why the hell aren’t there any awesome burger joints in Melbourne?’ Months later, JD’s Burgers became a reality, landing in the top five burgers in 2014 to 2017 consecutively by The Urban List, The World Loves Melbourne, Burgers of Melbourne, and other media and food guides.


Mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard or all? Neither. Secret fusion sauces are used at JD’s. Born through three years of research and development, our MSA-grade pure angus beef and JD’s secret fusion sauces make JD’s unique, with an explosion of flavour in your mouth only attainable at JD’s.


What’s a JD’s Burgers moment you will always cherish? When the Herald Sun featured JD’s 1.5kg legendary Super Saiyan Burger Challenge. Seeing my burger featured in an Australia newspaper got me so stoked after so much passion and sweat was poured into the making of JD’s.


What are you most proud of at JD’s Burgers? JD’s takes pride only using the highest quality ingredients selected for our burgers. Locally selected, fresh produce, MSA-grade angus beef, premium French brioche buns, American imported cheese, and most proudly, JD’s own secret fusion sauces.


How do you tackle the challenge of competing in a food hub like Melbourne? In order to strive in a competitive market, you need a unique selling point. At JD’s we market as Asian fusion burgers and secret fusion sauces. We have our very own niche sub-culture that really enjoys JD’s delicious Asian-American fusion flavours.
