Burger lovers of Sydney and Melbourne, rejoice — yet another place selling your favourite food is posed to join the culinary lineup. If you've ever been on holiday in Queensland and grabbed a burg on the Gold or Sunshine coasts, then you might be familiar with the newest joint heading down south: Betty's Burgers.
Don't go donning your best stretchy pants just yet, though. An opening date for Betty's first two ventures outside of their home state is yet to be announced (setting up a retro burger barn that'll make you feel like you've been whisked back to '50s America takes time, after all). But, expect them sooner rather than later — Melbourne staff have started training in the lead up to the new 97 Elizabeth Street firing up the grills, and the Betty's Facebook page has been posting pictures of Manly in Sydney.
Of course, good things come to those that wait, as your mum always told you. That includes five types of burgers, including classic, crispy chicken, pork belly and shroom selections. And there's also the massive stacked concoction that combines a good old' beef burg with its mushroom sibling.
If your stomach is already grumbling, that's understandable; Betty's meat-and-bread (and veg-and-bread) fare tastes as good as it sounds. Plus, it's not just the titular fare that's the attraction here, thanks to their Shake Shack-style frozen custard desserts known as 'concretes', which are available in everything from peanut butter brittle to hot fudge doughnut flavours.
