Cairns Burger Cafe
When a restaurant name includes a specific food, they'd better do it well. Luckily, Cairns Burger Cafe does just that.
The menu feels as though it came out of a stereotypical American diner. There are burgers, milkshakes, onion rings, and an all day breakfast. Be warned, a burger and a milkshake might be a bit much - the serves are generous and the milkshake is thick. Every menu item I've tried has been executed well, but I have to rave about the barbecue burger.
First of all the presentation is fantastic. It looks like something a food stylist in a fast food commercial slaved over for days. But that's nothing compared to the taste. I was worried that with a beef patty, cheese, and an onion ring, the burger might be a little too greasy. However the crunchy coleslaw cuts through the grease, perfectly balancing the burger.
Of course, what's a burger without chips? The chips accompanying my burger were consistently crispy, meaning I didn't have to hoard all my crunchy chips until the end of the meal. Everyone does that, right?
At the end of the meal, I discovered Cairns Burger Cafe does home delivery. This could be the start of a dangerously delicious addiction.
