Free Burgers this Wednesday!

By Barcham - 8 November 2013 22

Grill'd logo

Grill’d is opening up a new store in the Canberra Centre and I am full of excitement.

You should be too because they are offering up free burgers from 11am to 3pm this Wednesday (the 13th) and you should probably make sure to eat one.

Actually no scratch that, I will eat one. You’ll all just make the queue longer so um… forget I said anything.

At any rate I’m looking forwards to having a fancy burger. I hope Grill’d makes burgers as good as they say they do.

Well at least I hope they’re not really over priced and powerfully average.

Grill’d founder Simon Crowe said the Canberra Centre restaurant will more than satisfy the demand for healthy, convenient food options in the precinct.

“Grill’d is more than just a great tasting, healthy burger restaurant. We place a huge emphasis on offering a casual environment where people of all ages can enjoy a fresh and convenient meal with their friends and family,” he said.

“We currently have restaurants in Belconnen, Manuka and Woden however locals have been asking us to open another Grill’d in Canberra for a long time. This location is a perfect fit for Grill’d – we’re happy we will become part of the city scene and fill the burger-sized gap in the precinct.

“I encourage locals to come in next Wednesday and experience the Grill’d offering on us!”

What’s Your opinion?

Yeah i can’t see why brodburger was hyped sooo much. I guess they fill the void of the old school takeaway hamburger.
I’ve always been a bit more gourmet in my burgers. I do like London burgers and beer, but find the idea of reserving a seat or getting a seat sometimes annoying.

Grill’d have a good Satay chicken burger which I really quite like.

I tried Grilled when I lived in Belco. I was underwhelmed. The alarm bells started ringing when I noticed their blurb which said “we use healthy ingredients”.

If the ingredients were really healthy they’d run away before being made into a hamburger.

Grill’d burgers are the best burgers I have tasted in Canberra. (except for my mate Tommy’s burgers… Oh nom nom nom).

London Burgers – woeful, over priced. Bleh !
Brodburger – not worth the wait.
Local takeaways – too greasy.
Burger Edge – yet to try them.

I’m glad none of you like their burgers.. means the line tomorrow will be shorter. 🙂

i like grill’d….i mean it’s not the best burger i have had (that honour goes to fergburger in NZ – seriously for burger lovers) but they’re good, fresh and the chips are yummy

someone mentioned that there isn’t much competition anymore and that is pretty true – corner shops with good burgers are a dying breed

oh and i don’t like brodburger on any level (food is overrated and the service is atrocious)…so grill’d wins for me

Their salad is great. First time I’ve never felt hungry after eating a salad.

In Canberra it is anyway. On a couple of recent trips to Melbourne for work I was blessed with great suburban takaway burgers.

It’s been a while since I’ve had one, but Watson Take Away never missed a beat when looking for an old school hamburger with the lot.

I like Grill’d. I like Brodburger.

Methinks some people expect too much from a burger if they’re not finding something very pleasing in at least one of those options.

I agree, I had a Grilled burger in Melbourne (never had one here as there has never been an outlet close to me) & throughly enjoyed it. I would probably nearly have one over a Brodburger because they dont have the 60 minute wait.

brodburger s***z all over grill’d. dry and tasteless. Plus their chips are woeful.

Why were you sampling the sh1t that Brodburger did all over grill’d to know it was dry and tasteless?

Perhaps that had something to do with how woeful the chips were afterwards?

Unfortunately that is true. Grill’d is only ‘good’ because they have no competition.

The days of the local fish and chip shop doing a great burger with a juicy and well seasoned home made patty are gone.

Most now use frozen pre-made burgers and generic home-brand bread rolls .

I can make my own at home but they never have the flavour of meat from a take-away grill that has been cooking burgers for a decade.

Same, had a few at Woden.

Abysmal.

Tasteless.
