The Almighty Burger

Almighty Burger

Dear foodies and thrill-seekers, lend us your ears and sharpen your cutlery! A culinary Everest awaits at the Third Wave Cafe – a food experience so gargantuan and flavourful it will rewrite your dining dictionary. Presenting to you, for this month only, the culinary titan known as the “Almighty Burger” – a challenge, a treat, and a feast rolled into one.

At first glance, the Almighty Burger might strike you as a mythical creature from a gastronomic folklore, but this leviathan exists in all its glory at the heart of the Third Wave Cafe. “Big and meaty” barely scrapes the surface of describing this edible monolith. A gourmet expedition you and your mate could conquer in 15 minutes for free, but who could blame you if you savoured this grand odyssey over a more extended period?


The journey begins with a house-made brioche burger bun – a doughy testament to our commitment to quality. It stands tall, cradling the mammoth treat that lies within. Not one, not two, but six sizzling, juicy burger patties rest next in line, char-grilled to perfection and vying for your attention.

Yet, the adventure doesn’t stop there. A staggering dozen slices of mature Jack Cheddar cheese cascade over the patties, turning the humble burger into an Alpine spectacle. Each slice is a velvet blanket of matured, creamy delight, transforming every bite into a symphony of oozy goodness. But wait! Here comes a generous dollop of house-made relish to add an explosion of tangy contrast.

As you dig deeper, crunchy pickles and fresh tomatoes add a layer of zesty crunch, while a slathering of robust garlic mayo rounds off the flavours. To top it all off, six enormous, tender slow-smoked beef ribs jostle for space, adding a smoky richness that will make your tastebuds sing.

But oh, did we mention the Oink Balls? Six mouthwatering spheres of swine delight, expertly spiced, and impeccably fried. Then there’s the mountain of crispy fries, golden and enticing, absolutely drenched in creamy cheese sauce for an eruption of indulgence.

Sharing is caring, and this beast is ready to be tamed by 6-8 people under normal circumstances. But daredevils and flavour-fanatics, here’s your chance to prove your mettle. If you and a mate can polish off this gastronomic wonder in 15 minutes, the Almighty Burger is on the house!

Are you ready to take on this titan? If your taste buds are yearning for a daring adventure, it’s time to book your table at Third Wave Cafe. Grab your fellow food warriors and join us for an unforgettable culinary quest. Bookings are now available at

Hurry, this mammoth delicacy is available for this month only. Grab your fork and knife, don your food-warrior bibs, and charge headlong into the exciting food journey that is the Almighty Burger. We can’t wait to welcome you to the challenge. Bon appétit!


Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, we have cemented a reputation as a great neighborhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy our exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, we transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the best American BBQ experiences you’ll have outside of the US.


Third Wave Cafe started as a trendy inner Melbourne café with an aim to grow and so we did. After 9 years, we are one of Melbourne’s favourite American BBQ restaurants with a huge emphasis on slow-smoked meats and burgers.
