Critic's review

Graham Howe

Seriously good hamburgers with all the trimmings have made this burger chain a benchmark over the last decade. Bite into a generous bun and taste a real old-fashioned burger made using free-range, grass-fed beef supplied by local artisanal butcher Frankie Fenner. Whet your appetite with delicious triple-cheese chilli poppers and guacamole with GMO-free tortilla chips. The salads are just as fresh, healthy and wholesome. The BBQ ribs and chicken wings are also very popular. But the burgers are the big crowd-pleaser, tempting with twenty different versions made from beef, brisket, free-range chicken, pork and ostrich. Imaginative burger toppings range from pulled pork and cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, feta or cream cheese) to mushrooms, spicy chilli relish, jalapenos and habaneros.

Vegetarians need not fear – options range from a vegan, falafel or chickpea-and-lentil burger to falafel tacos. Don’t forget to order sides of onion rings, sweet potato fries, skin-on fries and coleslaw. The retro shakes and waffles are straight out of your childhood, and come in classic Oreo, peanut butter, Bar One and salted caramel popcorn flavours.

The generous portions make for good value.

There’s a well-priced selection of craft beers, cocktails, shooters, tequilas and wines by the glass.

High energy with attentive bar service and a smile.

Vibey neighbourhood burger joint where tourists can meet the locals.

The indecisive can opt for a trio of smaller burger sliders.

  • Great tasting burgers with a delicious chip side. Unfortunately let down by the poor service. Waited 45 min. for our food and when the designates driver asked for a Castle free "beer" the waitress adamently said that they do not have it. Only after it was pointed out that it is on the menu and that she should enquire, was it served. Burgers finally arrived, but not the cutlery... ai tog!

  • A perfect venue for the occasion! The food was incredibly tasty and the service good. My only criticism is two on-tap pints I ordered weren’t possible due to faulty taps etc. Otherwise a superb place to share some great food and fun times!
