I never thought the day would be possible for me to be recommending The Groove Train to anyone for a burger, but this burger was up there with the best. Juicy patties, cheese to die for and a perfect chilli sauce that brought all the flavours together.

The Groove Train in Plenty Valley invited me down to try their menu. I have been to The Groove Train closer to home at Southland Shopping Centre and could barely eat the burger from their menu, in fact it is sitting closest to one of the worst burgers I have ever eaten, so when the invite to come down to Mill Park happened it wasn't something that made me overly excited.

I thought I would give them another shot as they mentioned each franchise is different and they claim to be the best of the best.

On arrival I was greeted by the owner and head chef who said they were willing to change/update their specials menu to something me and the burger community would be proud of, they wanted to change the perception of The Groove Train and it somewhere people would travel too for one of Melbourn's best meals.

After making the trip to The Groove Train Plenty Valley 4 times, each to sample an upgrade from the time before - their burgers are now at a standard that puts them well above a lot of other burger joints and for those in the Northern Suburbs, they are likely to become a local favourite.

The burger pictured is my design, I ripped their standard burger apart and kept it simple. You don't make friends with salad so I removed all it. Bye Bye Tomato, Bye Bye Beetroot, Bye Bye Lettuce, Bye Bye Egg :P

If you are down in Mill Park, Epping, Eltham, Bundoora and wabt the best burger in the area, I highly recommend The Groove Train Plenty Valley - You will be presently surprised.

Check out their milkshake! Although very similar to our other top milkshake mates at Demazzi, it is one worth ordering!

Zomato Rating below is not a true reflection, if you enjoy this recommendation from me, give them a good score.
