The G.O.A.T – Dukes Burgers, Home to Joburg’s Original Gourmet Burger

Dukes Burgers Melville

Since 2010, Dukes Burgers in Melville has established itself as the original home of gourmet burgers. With hundreds of restaurant reviews under our belt, we can confidently say that they are still the Greatest of All Time!

Melville, once plagued by increased crime and a lack of support from the city, has undergone a remarkable transformation and is now experiencing a vibrant resurgence. It has reclaimed its status as the center of Joburg’s dining and nightlife scene and is celebrated for its diverse range of restaurants, bars and cultural destinations. In 2019, Time Out magazine named 7th Street in Melville as one of the world’s coolest top 30 streets, a testament to the area’s revival and charm.

Dukes Burgers stands as a true Joburg landmark, renowned for its trendy design and versatile dining areas, both indoors and outdoors. The restaurant is a reflection of Melville’s bohemian charm and diversity. What sets Dukes apart is its commitment to homemade excellence. Every gourmet burger patty, bun and sauce is made in-house, an incredible feat considering the extensive menu that features over twenty unique burgers.

One of the highlights is the immensely popular ‘The Dukes Burger,’ consisting of a 100% beef patty, tomato relish, cheddar cheese, pineapple, mushrooms, crispy bacon, deep-fried crumbed tomato, sunny-side egg and gherkins, topped with onion rings. It’s a mouthful that caters to the very hungry and adventurous diners. The menu also boasts a wide range of delicious lamb burgers, chicken burgers and four vegetarian options for plant lovers, ensuring there is something for everyone.

In addition to their gourmet burgers, Dukes offers an array of scrumptious melted cheese sarmies. The Joanna Classic, featuring fresh basil leaves, sliced tomato, avocado and melted mozzarella, is a standout favourite that promises to delight the taste buds.

Dukes isn’t just a late-night destination for Melville’s jollers; it’s also a welcoming spot for families during the week and the perfect venue for special celebrations, like Dad’s 60th birthday. The inclusive environment and mouth-watering menu make it a go-to restaurant for any occasion and we highly recommend a visit if you’re looking for exceptional burgers and a great vibe!
