Ever had the regret of waiting in line to grab some grub at the footy, then completely disappointed when you walk back to your seat with a soggy, stale burger you just paid top dollar for? Hanks Burgers and Beers will leave you regretting no more, and located just a couple of steps away from Brisbane’s iconic Suncorp Stadium.
These guys are relatively new to Brisbane’s established burger scene, opening up shop in the last couple of months. As the fit-out suggests, they offer proper American food on a big, big scale. There’s plenty of space for large groups to sit down for a quick bite before the game or a couple of cold beers.
The burger menu here isn’t as wide as other burger joints in town, but if you’ve got a handful of options done right, why do you need more? The New York New York is a must for those with a proper appetite – this multi-level beast will leave no room in your stomach – guaranteed! The meat is succulent and cooked to perfection, while dripping in Hanks special sauce.
Not as beastly, but certainly easier to handle, is the spicy krispy chicken burger. This thing packs a punch, but could do with a little bit more in the sauce department. Too many burgers around have dry, dry chicken – this one does not! Like the meat patty on the New York New York, it’s succulent and flavoursome.
The menu prices at Hanks is more than reasonable for the quality of food. Big match days will obviously mean this place will be heaving, so be sure to get there with enough time to spare!
Well priced American burgers and sides with funky fit-out and great big spaces.
