We are Huxtaburger; untameably cheeky and a touch twisted. We own taste and aim to inspire people through our passion for flavour. We started Melbourne’s burger craze back in 2011 and we intend to keep pushing the burger boundaries by always following our gut and continuing to bring heart and personality to the table.
Huxtaburger was founded in 2011 by three genuine hospitality legends, Dante Ruaine, Jeff Wong & Daniel Wilson. These guys are the epitome of ‘work hard, stay humble’. With decades of experience between them and resumes stacked with awesome accolades, it should come as no surprise that Huxtaburger launched with hordes of eager customers in queues around the block to have a taste (not to mention sitting on the sidewalk just to score a seat). This landed them Huxtaburger gigs at pretty much every notable event on Melbourne’s social calendar.
These three guys had a vision. Between them they had a solid set of skills, some serious balls and a truck load of passion. It all began late one night (more like early morning, if we’re being honest), when the boys conceived the idea of opening up an epic burger joint, while sitting inside their one hatted restaurant, Huxtable, which had barely opened its doors on Smith Street. The very next day they rolled up their sleeves and went to work with fists full of enthusiasm to turn their vision into reality. They knew a premium burger joint was exactly what Smith Street needed, but little did they know. They would soon go on to create a cult burger joint that would take the whole of Melbourne by storm. They haven’t looked back or stopped since.
Over their expansive careers, the boys have been fortunate enough to have seen the entire hospitality industry from every possible vantage point. They’ve always had an ear to the ground, knowing exactly what the customer wants, as well as the financial sensibilities that underpin commercial success. They are now extending the very same opportunity to like-minded people, who are just as dedicated and driven, to join in on this epic ride and run their very own Huxtaburger.
