Last Friday my fiancÚ and I went out for lunch. A burger, as you'd expect from that title. We walked down Rundle Street, which was crowded with people and then turned right at the rather neglected-looking Synagogue Place. Sceptically, I wondered just how good this place was going to be if it was hidden down a side-street. As it turns out, Fancy Burger is a fantastic place to have lunch. Judging by the fact that we were hard-pressed to find a table, quite a lot of other people think so too.
Only having opened just over a month ago, this place is bustling. Worry not though, they also do take-away if you your lunch break is just too short. The menu is substantial, with beef and chicken burgers, steak sandwiches, veggie burgers and chips. The owners clearly care about food, with the buns baked fresh daily and the patties sourced locally. The eggs are free-range and the sauces which you can dip your chips into are made on-site. These include BBQ and tomato relish, herby mayonnaise and smoked chilli mayonnaise. I can personally vouch for the BBQ relish, it was excellent.
The decor seems to be that of a 1950's style diner, with a focus on re-using products. Inside, tungsten lights overhang wooden tables, while outside shipping crates have been used to create dining spaces. Inside these hangs a crowded assortment of artwork. The table we sat at, was in fact a door.
Upon ordering, you are given a trophy as your table number, which makes you feel really special until you realise everyone else has one too. You get over that pretty quickly though, when you realise just how much care has been put into making this burger in front of you.
During the past week three of us had 3 different choices of Fancy Burgers' burgers with large chips and drinks at Fancy Burgers, Blackwood.
We all had magnificent burgers with lots of filling and the most delicious chips.
Service was warm, friendly and couteous and we would recommend to others to visit and enjoy their treats.
Disappointed with the Blackwood store, though. The last burgers we had were very short on filling ( a piece of lettuce and some dressings ) and the meat was dry and burnt. Too late to go back once we got them home - just won't be going there again...
The burgers are overpriced & not worth the money! For the price you pay, they are very short on the fillings. 1 piece of lettuce, 1 thin slice of tomato, 1 thin onion ring. I also waited over 1/2 an hour for my order after being told it would be 10 mins. It's a rip off. Don't bother!
