Over-the-Top Burger Palace Milky Lane Arrives in Brisbane This Week

The burger joint is finally bringing its monstrous burgs up north.

When Milky Lane opened in Bondi back in 2016, it immediately generated a cult following. Thanks to its calorific concoctions, casual any-night-of-the-week vibe and celebrity endorsements, the venue has become a go-to for many Sydneysiders when an indulgent meal is a must.

The chain made the jump to the Gold Coast in 2018 but, for Brisbanites, the slog down south can be long and painful (albeit worthwhile once the mega shake and burger-induced coma hits). Thankfully, there's now a solution a lot closer to home, with the team is opening a new venue at Gasworks Newstead on Wednesday, September 11.

The formula has remained pretty much the same across Milky Lane's six stores so far, with five in Sydney and one in Queensland to date. On the menu: artery-clogging burgers, loaded fries and shakes. Hey, if it ain't broke. Graffiti typically lines the walls, transforming the burg joint into the sort of place that instantly makes you feel cool by association. And as for culinary favourites, there's the fried chicken Chic Kanye burger, the bacon-stuffed Kevin Bacon burg, mac 'n' cheese croquettes, deep-fried Golden Gaytimes and Kit Kat Choc Fudge Booze Shake cocktails, among others.

The venue is sizeable, too, seating 200 burger fiends both inside and out. It's also mighty close to the other burg, shake and dessert-swilling eatery in the area, Betty's Burgers — but we all know how much Brissie loves meat between two pieces of bread, hefty piles of fries, milky drinks and over-the-top sweet treats.

Milky Lane Brisbane opens at Gasworks, 76 Skyring Terrace, Newstead, at midday on Wednesday, September 11. For further details, visit the chain's website — or keep an eye on the store's Facebook page.
