Burger joint 5 Boroughs might take its name from New York's five divisions, but it could also be giving Brisbanites a sneak peek of things to come. With a new eatery set to open in Balmoral on June 23, that'll bring the chain's footprint to three stores across the city. It's not quite up to five yet, but it's getting close.
Coming to the corner of Riding and Barton roads, the new burger outpost will keep slinging its American-style street food, just in a new eastside location. That means more burgers of the classic, cheese, bacon-filled and vegan variety, as well as baby back ribs in Bulldog Bourbon sauce, cheese fries, fish tacos and reuben sandwiches.
The chain has also just launched five new burgs, featuring mac 'n' cheese, brisket, and both fried and grilled chicken — as well as a Manhattan Royale with Cheese, which comes with a pickle on top.
Joining existing restaurants in Stones Corner and Ascot, the Balmoral space will also be getting things started in the usual 5 Boroughs fashion — that is, with a two-for-one deal. Head on down on opening day to nab an extra burger with your order, although, because the special is designed to encourage you to bring a friend, you are required to purchase two drinks.
Find 5 Boroughs Balmoral at 216 Riding Road, Balmoral from June 23. For more information, visit the chain's website or Facebook page.
