For the next month, The Annandale Hotel and The Raby Tavern in Sydney will be doing something slightly special: they’ll be selling World of Warcraft burgers, ahead of the launch of Battle for Azeroth. Spoiler: they’re massive, tasty, and available from today.

There’s two burgers available – one Horde and one Alliance – and you’ll be able to buy either from the Burgers by Josh venues at both hotels. The Horde burg will set you back $20, and comes with jalapenos, house bourbon honey chipotle BBQ sauce, sriracha maple bacon, spicy fried chicken, pickel guindilla chilli horns, slaw, and a bright red potato bun:

What’s not mentioned in that description, but you can clearly see above, is that the chicken patties are fucking enormous. Mind you, they’re a hell of a lot easier to eat than this situation:

For $22 – because of course Alliance has to be a bit fancier – you get a double wagyu beef patty, american cheese, crispy bacon, picked peppers, chilli jam, onion, tomato, lettuce, saffron aioli, a hash brown, a bright blue bun and a fried jalapeno popper on top.

Oh, and obviously, both burgers come with chips. Because if you’re going to destroy your body, you might as well do it properly.

The fun trick amongst all of this is that whatever burger turns out to be the most popular will remain on the menu for a further month after Battle for Azeroth launches next month. Obviously, this all only matters to those who can physically get to the Annandale and/or Raby Tavern.

That said, it’s a neat PR trick. And for the record, I went for the Alliance burger. After all, I remember what happened the last time I had a blue burger, and figured blue was better than red the second time through.


  • I have hyperextension in my jaw and even I’d struggle. I’d just dismantle it and eat some of the components before I had a manageable sized burger.

    • The Horde burger is a lot easier to eat, that’s for sure, but the Alliance burger was tasty AF. Needed knife and fork though.

  • wait a fucking minute… The Raby Tavern in Sydney…. do you mean the Raby tavern in Raby? like in campbelltown? like the one around the corner from my house…. please alex confirm……… ;D

      • omg… I’m trying to get in shape but i want this so bad hahaha. why does it have to be so close to me lol! I think I’m going to have to cave in and try it at least once.

        • You owe it to all of us who can’t make it over there to try both burgers at some point over the next couple weeks please ^_^

          • me and my Brother will be heading over next weekend to try them so ill post a video and update a link here probs ๐Ÿ™‚

  • lol! I read this, saw the pics of the burgers and thought awww, I can only eat the Horde burger because… I ONLY PLAYED HORDE IN THE MMO!…

    What the hell is wrong with me?? I’m a grown-ass man! I haven’t played WOW in 10 years! THIS IS REAL LIFE! I CAN EAT BOTH, GAWDAMMIT!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I’ve gotta be honest, they look terrible. I get the red/blue gimmick for horde/alliance but they look like they’re too big and they’d be an utter mess to try to eat. I’d much rather they actually did the same thing but sized (and priced) them a bit more reasonably.

    Admittedly, it’s a bit hard to get a good idea of scale since there’s nothing else in the shots…
