We were at the Melbourne Zoo and ready for a hearty meal and so a suggestion was brought up that made Hollywood feel really good, The Dude Food Man. It’s one of those places that advertises amazing burgers but is a bit out of the way for the Melbourne Fried Chicken scene to venture out to, but on this specific day we did!
There were 3 of us so we decided on the dude burger, the southern fried chicken burger and the mushroom burger along with a side of mac and cheese and the fries
The Chick has an issue with fried mac n cheese in that she feels it usually dries out the sauce. These ones were OK, better than the usual ones but the creaminess factor was not up to the chick’s standards.
The dude burger was good too, however it wasn’t amazing but nonetheless really good to have
The fried chicken burger on the other hand was really good, we enjoyed that one the best out of all the 3 burgers were ordered
The Dude Food Man has some good burgers to offer however our take on it is it’s more of an “if you’re in the area” kinda joint
Hollywood’s Rating: 6.5/10 Clucks
The Chick’s Rating: 6/10 Clucks
