I took 4 of my 5 kids to the White House for burgers and shakes on a Friday afternoon on a recommendation. I have had burgers all over the world and these were simply world class. Definitely the best burgers in Adelaide by some margin. A must when you are in the Adelaide Hills.

We found The White House on Trip Advisor - and, once again, it didn't let us down. This is easily the best burger I've had in years - no comparison! It was just the right amount of juicy without getting gooey; and oh so tasty! The chips with their herb salt dusting were delicious too! Treat yourself!

On a recent trip to Hahndorf we stumbled across The White House...a beautiful restaurant with loads of charm in the Adelaide Hills. The owner spent time talking with us, serving food and clearing at the same time telling us a little about why they have changed the menu to burgers. It is, in my opinion the right move. In an...

In a town where some of the restaurants can be accused of trying to be too many things to too many people The White House stands out as a gem. "Burger season" delivered a lunch significantly above expectations. Faultless burgers on excellent brioche buns were a delight. Fries done just right and a balanced wine list underline the quality of... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed a burger each. The menu is short and simple which meant what they served was very good. The staff was excellent at customer service. Highly recommended.
