Cult burgers and frozen custard from Queensland.
Burger lovers of Sydney, rejoice — yet another (yes, 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 our newest resident from up north: Betty's Burgers.
After announcing they'd be opening new stores in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane last year, their shiny new burger joint is now open underneath the International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour, their first in Sydney. This new store will have 20 seats indoors and 26 outside.
So what's Betty's all about? Well they do a range of burgs that have been pretty well received up north. 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.
The concept sounds similar to burger joint Royal Stacks, which also does burgers and frozen custard desserts, although it must be noted that Betty's was first opened in Noosa by David Hales in 2014 (before Royal Stacks opened up shop in Melbourne). He has since opened more stores across the country — three on the Gold Coast, one in Toowoomba and one in Melbourne.
