Some friends are going on a working holiday and had roped the SO to help move their worldy possessions into storage units. By the time the time they were done, everyone was starving and wanted one last hurrah in their homebase.
One of the places they had been recommending is Babu Burger and Grill and this was the perfect opportunity to check it out. We arrived to a relatively empty restaurant out front and in the main dining area, but there was a large group of women at the back, which appears to cater to events and large groups.
Our friend quipped they have a sign they occassionally put out, proclaiming Babu Burger and Grill are 'probably the best burgers in Brisbane'. I like honesty and a touch of cheek. (^_^)
All burgers are served with fresh salad on the side - lettuce, tomato, pickle & onion, plus gourmet tomato relish. They are dressed in a balsamic dressing and I opted to slap them into my burger.
Your meat pattie is cooked to your preference, just like steak. And they have a range of extras you can include to customise your burger, including grilled eggplant.
The Classic Babu - Big Babu with cheese, bacon & fried egg
The Junior Babu (150gm patty), with cheese and bacon
$11.90 + $1.20 + $1.50
Ned Kelly - Big Babu with cheese, caramelised onion & beetroot
Chicken Breast Burger + avocado
$11.90 + $1.20
Interestingly, you can order a side of chips with your burger for $2.30.
Check out the rest of the menu.
We got a newbie waitress, so rather than the Junior Babu burger I requested for, I got a chicken burger. It wasn't a long wait for the food, but by the time it arrived, I was so hungry, I decided not to quibble over the mistake. The chicken was really nice and yummy, but watching everyone else wolf down their juicy patties was torture.
If you're not particularly hungry or a monster eater, stick to the smaller Junior Babu or possibly the Lady Babu (2 smaller burgers). They're hefty portions and will not leave you wanting.
