Tuckshop Take Away is a small burger joint in Caulfield North, on the corner of Hawthorn Road and Glen Eira Road, specialising in burgers and chips. I decided to visit this place after hearing about it from a couple of friends, and seeing it on the list of Top Ten Burger Places in Melbourne by the Herald Sun. Tuckshop Take Away is easily accessible by tram 64 towards East Brighton - there's a tram stop right outside the burger joint, and there's also several side streets nearby for parking as well. I really enjoyed this burger experience, and can definitely see why it has been named as one of the best burger places in Melbourne.
The burger joint itself is quite small; there's only about thirteen seats at most, and most people do get their orders take away. We went at 11am on a Saturday when it opened, and were lucky enough to grab seats at the communal table. Although the place isn't very big, it's quite an open space setting with old school decorations, consistent with the name as a Tuckshop. There are clocks on the walls similar to what we used to have at school, a set of small lockers with decorations in them, and a sign at the back leading to the 'Principal's Office'. Even the cups for the water have coloured pencils as the pattern - this is self serve from a tap to one side of the burger joint, near where the magazines are placed. There's also really cool graffiti style art on one of the walls outside the burger joint, which is very bright and eye catching, and a hopscotch drawn in chalk just outside the entrance.
