Burger lovers of Brisbane, rejoice — yet another (yes, another) place selling your favourite food is posed to join the culinary lineup. If you've ever grabbed a burg on the Gold or Sunshine Coasts, then you might be familiar with our newest resident: Betty's Burgers.
After announcing they'd be opening new stores in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane last year, their shiny new burger joint opened in June inside Westfield Chermside's brand new dining precinct, their first in Sydney. This new pastel-coloured store has custom Italian wall tiles and room for 100 diners. It joins Bin 931 Bar and Dining from Gold Coast Little Truffle restaurateur and chef Daniel Ridgeway, and Bootlegger from Sydney's Tom Chidiac of Sourdough and The Naked Duck fame, along with Zeus Street Greek and 4Fingers Crispy Chicken in the new food precinct.
So what's Betty's all about? Well, they do a range of burgs that have been pretty well received on the coast. If you haven't tried one yet, you can except their classic, crispy chicken, pork belly and mushroom signature burgers to make their way to Sydney, as well as their insane Shake Shack-esque frozen custard concoctions. These are called 'concretes', and you can choose to get things like peanut brittle, pecan pudding, doughnuts and lemon cheesecake mixed through them.
Betty's was first opened in Noosa by David Hales in 2014. He has since opened more stores across the country — three on the Gold Coast, one in Toowoomba, one in Melbourne and one in Sydney. Another Brisbane store is already slated to open in Newstead this year.
