Quality burgers from the comfort of your car? Drive this way. The Grosvenor Hotel's St Kilda Burger Bar (STKBB) opens Monday, June 15, joining the hotel's drive-through Grosvenor Grocery and Bottle Shop selling bespoke produce and plonk.

The former shed in the car park of the Brighton Road pub has been transformed for takeaway tucker, although there are some cushioned beer kegs outside the shed.

The burgers are made from the trimmings of Gippsland grass-fed beef that head chef Paul Tyas uses on the hotel's bistro menu.

The Grosvenor burger is filled with beef, bacon, pickles, cheese and lettuce – around 200 are sold every week in the bar.

The Plugger is a binge of double beef, bacon, cheese and a hash brown.

Vegetarians have a roasted portobello mushroom option, and for the little people in the back seat there are kid-size burgers.

Desserts-to-go by pastry chef Dan Grieff include a peanut butter and jelly ice-cream sandwich.

Honk if you're hungry from Sunday to Thursday, 3pm-11pm, and Friday and Saturday, 3pm-midnight.
