Woden is about to get a whole lot greasier.

Already widely acclaimed for its restaurants in Braddon and Gungahlin, and its food truck, ‘The Pitts’ in Phillip, Grease Monkey has found a more permanent home southside in the Westfield Woden Bradley Street dining precinct.

The new store will open on Sunday (12 December) from 11:00 am with 500 free Greasy burgers being given out to celebrate the occasion.

All the old Greasy favourites will be on the Woden menu: Greasy’s burgers, fried chicken, wings and Detroit-style pizzas, as well as its range of cocktails and craft beers.

Director of Grease Monkey Nick Tuckwell said the permanent home acknowledged the southside’s long-term support of the food truck.

“Our food truck has been set up at The Pitts for the past two years, and the Woden community has got right behind us, so it’s great we can now open the doors on a permanent shop,” Mr Tuckwell said.

“The past couple of years have been really challenging for the Canberra food scene, and we want to thank everyone that has supported us. We’re really proud we’ve been able to continue our plans to expand and open more Greasies in the ACT.”

The Pitts will stay open for a brief period after the Woden restaurant opens before moving to a new location in Kingston in the new year.
