One burger joint in Australia called Pablo's Escoburgers is copping plenty of backlash at the moment.

The pop-up, located in Prahran, is taking its name fairly seriously, serving a burger that really goes to imitate the Colombian drug lord.

Photos of a burger, complete with a fake $100 note and fake line of cocaine across the top of the bun, popped up on their social media channels and gathered plenty of interest.

Apparently the line is just garlic powder, but it hasn't stopped the intrigue.

"What’s that white powder sprinkled on top of the bun," one Facebook user wrote.

"That will be $305 thank you very much."

The store defended itself from the criticism in a recent Facebook post.

"Lovers love our burgers and haters are always going to hate! Not all Colombians are going to love our name but they all love our burgers," they wrote.
