Leigh Sales not impressed by the Brodburger traditions

Star of ABC TV Leigh Sales is busily tweeting her feelings about the wait at Brodburger.

I’ve been waiting 1 hour, 40 mins for a burger at Canberra’s #brodburger. Suspect the 70ish woman nearby was a teenager when she ordered.

I’ll have to leave soon so I don’t miss the baby’s first day of school in 2017. #brodburger #epicfail

We hope she’s taken the time to enjoy the glassworks.

A burger is a burger, I’ll take a McCr@p hold the hair. At least it is quick, well most of the time.

I had lunch here during the week and can report the crowds are down to more manageable levels and as a result our table of six was served within 15-20 minutes of ordering.

Happy days!

WTF are ‘pastel shorts’?

Part of the tasteless – and “unique” – accoutrement you yuppies sport on your days off.

Check your cupboard – you should find them two shelves up from the leather jandals.

Underneath the fedora?

Yep, right next to the skivvies, and right in front of the red beret with the mao badge, unworn since 3rd-year Uni.

This is what happens when all and sundry want to sink their teeth into an issue.

Jandals? I thought when you had originally posted that, it was a spelling mistake, but here it is again.

It seems you have a strong understanding of the attire of people you seemingly dislike, is there something else you’d like to get out of your closet?

Maybe a collection of shirts covered with ‘homemade aioli’ from different truck stops?

comparing brodburger to caltex truckstop is apples and oranges

You may be confusing truckstops with service stations. Some of the best, freshest food money can buy can be had at truckstops.

The best truckstop is the Pheasants Nest service centre (southbound) the first stop on the road out from Sydney. Great food and you don’t have to wait over an hour.

It does seem to spread.

And, somehow, one senses that it adds to overall flavour.

Of the post, of course.

I’d say comparing hamburgers from any two cafes is completely valid

But taking the further step of attempting to compare it to a, hold on, HAHA! truckstop burger is simply ridiculous. Honestly…

Mind you, I wouldn’t turn up to a trucker’s diner wearing your pastel shorts and leather jandals if I were you, they may very well treat you to some of their own very special and unique “homemade aioli”….

You just walk straight off the set of Craig Ferguson? Not everyone in Canberra is in a rush to immediately eat once ordered.

I am rather surprised that Brodburger have managed to stay open for so long. It just goes to show how desperate Canberrans are so something unique and special.

People will line up to be different.

Even if a truckstop burger was exceptionally good, there is no comparison. There is always a danger being associated with the sweaty hoi polloi at those places.

The Brod is an ‘experience’. Standing in line there marks you out as….well, it marks you out.

Yeah, and I bet those Caltex truckstop people can’t even spell “homemade aioli”. Losers.

25 minute wait for myself Sunday. Ordered cheeseburger and side of fries for takeaway at 12pm, on my way home by 1230pm 🙂

Half an hour wait for a hamburger? I don’t know why you’re smiling, my local takes 12 minutes.

I love the ‘my local’ arguments, won’t even address that. And yeah, smiling as every table was seated, with roughly 15 people ordering ahead of me!

So yeah, 25 minutes 🙂
