Goodbye old friend. Brod’s red caravan put out to pasture

By Holden Caulfield - 23 November 2012 16

red caravan

Driving home from work the other day I noticed the famed red Brodburger caravan appears to have ended its useful life in the back streets of Fyshwick (Wiluna Street, in this case).

May it rust in peace.

[ED and here’s a memory of the glorious past]

Defiantly great burgers,

Definitely, say it with me now, de-fin-ite-ly! Sorry, I try not to be a dick about spelling and grammar, but those are two very different words and it shouldn’t be that difficult.

Clearly I spelt it wrong, but safari auto correct obv picked the wrong word. Not really a issue.

Given the trouble they went through with ACT Govt bueracacy, I think ‘defiantly’ was the right choice of word.

ACT Govt bureaucracy; you mean the bureaucracy where the ACT taxpayer subsidises a private business to relocate to a subsidised location in Kingston, just to keep all the hipsters happy after the NCA finally got jack of the bludgers expecting a perpetually free electricity supply for their caravan down at the lake?

And we’re probably still subsidising the lazy bastards too. Must be bloody hard to run a private business when your rent, etc is being (partially?) paid for by others……..

And we probably all paid for the fit-out of the place too.

The wait depends on the day. Totally worth it for the helium cheese.

Like just about anything I care to name in the universe, the wait has been vastly improved by the availability of beer.

Sigh, part of Brod’s appeal was the wait. Rollerblade around the lake for a few hours, order food with friends, sit and wait, almost pass out from starvation, wait some more, have philosophical discussions brought about by hunger-hallucinations, wait a bit longer, write folk songs about eels, then finally, burger-nirvana!

We have truly lost something wonderful. Folk songs about eels…. the mind boggles.

Defiantly great burgers, but still do not live up to the hype or a wait more than 15 mins.

That second picture makes me laugh. It’s like they were making love to the burgers.

They’re just that good

I’ll miss the van.

Last time I went, which was a few months ago now, we ordered, ate and left very satisfied around 30 minutes after walking through the door. That was a sunny winter afternoon and all but one of the tables were full when we arrived.

some reports from recent customers … 15 minutes. (9pm on a weekend).

So what’s the waiting time for a burger now? Might go try them at the new location if it’s down to something reasonable (say ten minutes max).

fabulous – it was a daft eyesore in front of the glassworks…
