When Brisbanites sleep, do they dream of burgers? The latest burger joint to open its doors certainly hopes so. Bringing American-style feeds to Petrie Terrace, Hank's Burgers & Beer might be yet another place grilling up the city's favourite meat-and-bread combo (and veggies and bread, for non-carnivorous customers); however what they do, they do well.
Every burger on their menu keeps the US theme going, so prepare to take your tastebuds on a tour. Those after a classic kind of burg should opt for the New York, while anyone feeling extra hungry should double up on their beef and cheese with the New York New York. You'll find fried chicken on the Kentucky, of course, and pineapple on the Hawaiian. Fish fiends, the Florida is tailor-made for you. And if you're looking for slow-cooked pork and slaw, you're after the Iowa.
Just as live tunes spice up Saturday nights at the Caxton Street haunt, weekly specials add other choices to the mix, like the Idaho with double beef, double cheese, bacon, onion, pickle, mustard, ketchup, Hank's sauce and fries. When it comes to washing it all down, the beverage of choice is right there in the name, though other options are also available. Soft drink refills are free with any burger purchase, and their shakes are big, bright and delicious.
