Brodburger review

By Barcham 5 March 2013 68

When asked about reviewing something south of the lake in his $10 lunch reviews Johnboy said “When I find something good south of the lake I’ll let you know about it.”

He’s making me write about Brodburger. Draw your own conclusions about that.

So Brodburger is apparently a thing. Everyone has heard about about it. Well, everyone except me it seems. I had not heard about Brodburger until this morning which inspired Johnboy to take me there for lunch. On the drive down south he filled me in on the history of the Brodburger, its humble beginnings, through its troubled days at the park, and onto its new home at the Glassworks.

I was rather excited as we pulled up. The place is really trendy, the staff were nice, the rest of the customers were rather excited, and it felt like I was playing a part in something much larger and more important than simply having lunch. This was a THING. I was having a great time. The lady said my burger would take 20 minutes and it did pretty much exactly. That’s awesome, I’d been told tales of people waiting over an hour for their burger. Everything was going my way…

It’s a shame the burgers are powerfully average and extremely overpriced.

Ahh well.

What’s Your opinion?

if the burger was excellent (like say Fergburger in NZ) i would happily wait and pay a premium price…but they’re a LONG way off that

LOL, sounds a little too close to “furburger”.

Whatever it sounds like, I am a massive burger fan and eat them all over the world…always have a burger craving…and these were the best I have ever had. Damn it now I want one :'(

Ah sauce! What needest thou of meat?
Does not an honest bun’s virgin fold
Contain sufficient joy for us to hold
With your squirty ideogram so sweet?

Well thank God I didn’t mention the onion rings.

It could be worse. Your name could be Virginia Cockburn of Bluetit Ave, Scunthorpe. That would also cause flirtation…

Why do people get so passionate about a hamburger joint? I have never been, and don’t feel a huge lack in my life.

This is the seventeenth thread on this place, I think. Autumn of the Seventeenth Roll?

I think you should write a poem about it! How popular would it be?!?! 🙂

Given I’m vego, probably not very popular at all!

Love it! But, they do have vego. See:

In fact there is a fourth option – they DO recognize they are inefficient, but are unable to rectify due to kitchen space/manpower/cost issues being too great.

Well, the space issue was understandable in the caravan, but not really an acceptable explanation in their permanent location.

They also go to some lengths to notify that “Quality takes time” on their website and under the menu in the shop.

That said, the last few times I’ve been the wait times haven’t been too bad (15-25mins), so I’ve not got too many concerns about going there regarding wait times anymore.

I still haven’t managed to wrap my head around the whore-hugger’s term “powerfully average”. Maybe it’s one of those terms used and understood by the bone-framed-spectacle, fixed-speed bike riding, latte sipping crowd, but to me “average” in food means “uninspiring”. How can something be “powerfully average”? Obviously this food inspired you in some way (even negatively), so perhaps a contrast to other burgers that your readers are likely to have encountered would be in order?

Brodburger used to have the nicest seasoned meat patties in town. Perhaps they’ve changed the recipe? Then there was the home made relish and aoli.

Maybe I’ll have to go to Brodburger myself in the near future and show you how a proper food review is done.

I think the problem is that you don’t seem to have the same definition of “average” as the *average* person. If you did, you’d understand how something can be powerfully average 🙂

Either they do not recognise that they are grossly inefficient (despite any google search telling them so) or it is a basic and deliberate lack of respect for customers.

There is a third option which everyone seems to be ignoring. That is, they are happy with the size/output of there business, and don’t wish to accept the reduction in quality that a increase in production would likely cause.

The fact that they are operating to capacity much of the time, and are charging premium prices would tend to suggest that there are making “enough” money (is there such a thing) and are happy with the status quo.

Of course, a simple solution would be to only take peoples orders when you know that you can have the product on the table in a reasonable time – I suspect they aren’t quite at the point where they will make people queue for half an hour without taking an order, as I suspect that would increase their walk away numbers.

In fact there is a fourth option – they DO recognize they are inefficient, but are unable to rectify due to kitchen space/manpower/cost issues being too great.

It’s funny how some people complain as though they feel personally aggrieved like – “a basic and deliberate lack of respect for customers”. What giant wankers.
