I first heard of this place described as 'the great burger place', a food truck by the lake. We had the details and intended to go but got waylaid on a failed adventure, and I had to listen to complaints on the drive back to Sydney "We should have just gone to the great burger place!".
Fast forward a few years and Brodburger now has a permanent home in the Kingston Glassworks carpark. It is a groovy diner with a retro feel, with indoor and outdoor seating - and it needs it all.
As we were heading up from Sydney, we arrived 1.30 on a Friday, and the place was packed. We were able to order straight away and our food came quickly, as we were the tail end of the workday lunch crowd. It is popular, with good reason. It is also proper food not a chain takeaway, and good food takes time. They have signs warning of a wait, and they're in the process of implementing an app to place your orders so you get the idea of just how pumping this place gets.
They offer a range of burgers - and they're cooked medium rare. I was very impressed with the 'Mum-to-be' option where they cooked the patties well done, with egg-free aioli and only the hard cheeses. It's an indication of the well thought out plans behind this not so humble burger joint.
Even with the standard Brodburger, you can choose from four cheeses - cheddar, swiss, blue and brie. A generous side of chips is a mere $2.50 extra. There are chicken, fish and vegetable burgers on the menu.
