Betty's Burgers Is Now Slinging Burgers and Shakes at Its New Howard Smith Wharves Joint
Stop by for stacked burgers, decadent thickshakes and its signature frozen custard treats by the river.
May 29, 2019
Betty's Burgers just keeps expanding its empire, with the Shake Shack-style joint opening its latest Brisbane outpost at Howard Smith Wharves. The new store — the fast-growing chain's fourth in Brissie — comes less than five years after opening its first eatery in Noosa, and less than two years after finally making the move from the Sunshine Gold coasts.
First announced in April, Betty's new location not only pairs the brand with one of the city's best new precincts, but with a river view. Yes, that means tucking into burgs, onion rings and frozen custard while peering out over the water. Given the chain's coastal beginnings, Betty's has always had a beach burger bar vibe, so its new digs are rather fitting.
The HSW spot joins existing stores in Chermside, Newstead and Indooroopilly. As always, burg-lovers can expect plenty of their favourite dish, plus thickshakes and five types of 'concretes' — those aforementioned frozen custard desserts.
For those keeping count, this makes 11 Betty's stores in southeast Queensland, with further eateries in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
At HSW, Betty's sits alongside an ever-expanding range of places and spaces — a riverside brewery, overwater bar, Greek taverna and cliffside hotel among them. In the coming months, the inner-city spot will also welcome a Japanese bar and a Chinese restaurant.
