Charboys Burgers – Brisbane (Burger)
In this day and age, instant gratification is sought after over everything else. We want the best and we want it now. Due to this expectation, things don’t often live up to the hype. A superheavyweight fight ends in the first round after months of hype and promotion, that amazing holiday you booked turns out to be a dud because the photos of the resort were taken when it was brand new and no maintenance has been done since they were taken, television programs in the 60’s implied that we would have colonies on the moon and driving flying cars by now, losing your virginity (probably one of the biggest hyped activities that always turns out to be a bit of a letdown….well, nowhere near and fantastic as one envisaged. On the hunt for the best burger in Brisbane, this is not the case…with Charboys burgers.
Screw you Foodora
There is a window of time you should plan to arrive at such a heavenly food preparer like Charboys. Too early and you’ll need a second lunch, too close to lunch time….and you will need to wait while a thousand people line up ahead of you to order their carby goodness, causing you to wait…and smell…and consider your dining options…then reconsider….then change your mind…then change it again when you see someones freshly prepared burger, giving you a really bad case of food envy. This isn’t even including the delivery guys for Foodora.
Just as you think you order is about to be announced, some overly happy lad (or lass) arrives at the window wearing a large cube shaped pack on their back. Collecting 3-4,5-6 or what seems like the next 100 orders that are prepared, the Foodora delivery peeps basically mean that you have to wait longer.
Food envy at it’s finest
With a variety of burgers, incuding the Carnivore (which includes 3 types of meat – american fried chicken, wagyu beef and bacon), the Lentil (Vego) Burger (which I assume comprises of lentils and heapings of self-righteous smugness and disappointment) and The Schorcher (which includes both jalepenos and sriracha for multiple burn times). Standing in line, I changed my mind 3 times – Carnivore, to the double burger, to the Scorcher and finally settling on The Goodfella after seeing some random lady seemingly dislocate her jaw just to ensure she was devouring all flavour sensation providing ingredients at the same time.
Apparently the oning rings are amazing, but I don’t think I could handle any more awesomeness that the current experience provided. The fries were about as delightful as you can get. Perfectly crisped with a brilliant coating Charboys signature seasoning secret goodness, what can only be described as zing (I liken zing to 2 parts kapow, with a sprinkling of WTF and a dash of “oh yeah”).
Hand Pressed Wagyu Beef, American Cheddar, Bacon, Grilled Pineapple, Brioche Bun, Signature Sauce, Hydroponic lettuce, tomatoes, onions, coconut chilli, ketchup & mustard – these all combine to create a absolute feeling of satisfaction, as if eating manna from the gods or like when you are eating nana’s upside down apple rolly pollies (you know the ones, they are absolutely delicious, fill you up and make you feel safer with every mouthful). While, without a little bit of careful eating, the Charboys Goodfella can be quite messy, distributing coconut chilli sauce across your face and Charboys signature sauce dripping down your wrist, you don’t care because, a quick glance around will see a bunch of other people in the same situation – food across their cheeks, grins across their faces and the glazed look of someone really enjoying (quite possibly) the best burger in Brisbane.
