Sydney’s epic Burgapalooza is back, and we’ve got the menu

Sydney’s burger lords are once again about to join forces in Parramatta’s Prince Alfred Square Park for Burgapalooza. And if previous years are anything to go by, burger fiends can expect some of the best damn creations from both legendary burger chefs and some widely acclaimed newcomers.

Festival all-stars Down n’ Out, BL Burgers, Burger Head and Mister Gee will be returning to set up stalls and churn out exclusive creations, alongside the likes of Fat Belly Jacks, Black Bear BBQ, Jimmy’s Burgers, Newy Burger Co, and Burger Hounds.

Since festival organisers have hooked up with presenting partners Menulog, the festival has grown substantially. This year, that growth will include a giant, inflatable Wipeout-style obstacle course here anyone game enough to enter can complete an “extreme delivery” for their chance to win free burgers, Menulog vouchers, and glory.

Although we know what you really care about is knowing exactly what you’re going to eat. So we’ve rounded up the menu, giving you a chance to prepare those stomachs before you’re forced to make the forever difficult choice of choosing only one or two of these beauties (unless you want to roll home, of course).
