I’ve driven past this place so many times on the way to and back from 1000 steps thinking that one day, we’d go here for a meal afterwards. That day came one Sunday afternoon after a very satisfying 1000 steps run at Mount Dandenong. Having been meaning to try the place at least once, Le Boy and I were finally prompted to come here. On It Burgers is easy enough to access from Burwood Hwy with plenty of spaces to park you car.
It is set up like a fast food restaurant having originally been a KFC restaurant once a long time ago.
Fun Guy $9.90
Panko crusted cheese filled portobello mushroom, lettuce, tomato, basil pesto and truffle mayo
As I’m not a major fan of beef burgers, I immediately opted for a vegetarian option. Although a little uncreative with using a large portobello mushroom as a vegie patty, I was impressed that they managed to fill it with cheese and cover it with a nice crispy panko crust. The brioche bun was nice and soft and overall the burger was a lot nicer than I had given it credit for. I can’t say however that the basil pesto and truffle mayo was something I could really taste that well.
Bacon Jammy (standard) $14.90
Extra slathers of bacon jam, beef patty, smoky “on it” sauce, melted American cheese and bacon
The bun was really nice once again and the bacon jam and “on it” sauce were certainly something very different. Overall, Le Boy found it to be quite a nice burger, but nothing about it left him craving for more unlike the burgers from JD’s.
3 Chilli cheese fries $8.45
Japanese togarashi seasoning, Thai Sriracha sauce, Mexican dried Jalapenos, coriander, Kewpie mayo, melted cheddar
These were a tasty hot mess. Not too overly spicy, but enough to provide you with a good kick. These chilli fries were well worth the price tag.
The burgers at On It were good but not great. It’s good if you happen to be in the area and the idea of driving anywhere remotely towards the city puts you off eating out in general. The establishment has a clean layout, furnished with simple dining chairs and tables. It is nice place for a casual meal with a mate, some friends or an easy family meal.
