Oportos shut down???

By martin75 - 16 October 2012 36

Does anyone know why Oporto’s shutdown in Civic and Woden?

Their website is still up

I have heard rumors but nothing has been confirmed.

Looks like i’m going to have to get my chicken Burgers from the Fish Shack from now on.

What’s Your opinion?

I just visited majura park to buy some money….

You buy money? How does that work? Or were you buying a packet of chimps, and dropped the ‘k’?

If I’m being obtuse here, I apologise.

I just visited majura park to buy some money, and could’ve sworn the Oporto near the door was open as usual. Might have to wander over again and look at it properly.

Damn, I loved their Bondi burgers.

Oporto tastes like a petroleum by-product – I can’t stand the crap.

That said, I am a huge fan of Whoppers and the good old Angry Angus, which is strange, because they most probably ARE petroleum by-product. I guess they just hide the taste better.

So Oporto’s has closed, and their slogan was ‘You just got to go, O’Porto’

Coincidence?

Couple of things I always find odd:

1. Oporto Belco will be deserted while the Maccas across the way is chocker. The Oporto tucker is reliably superior, same sort of $$, and there’s no waiting. Remarkable no. of people with unwavering Maccas habits.

2. Variation from one franchise to another. Oporto Belco are consistently good. We went to the Oporto Civic twice and they were dreadful both times (such that we subsequently referred to them as “Oborto”).

So, not surprised the Civic shop is gonski. The Woden shop seemed to be in the wrong place.

I love me some McDonald’s, almost entirely because of the Mighty Angus burger. Incidentally, has anyone else tried the new ‘Ultimate’ Angus burgers from Mickey D’s? I’ve had two “new and improved” mighty Angus’ and they were both disgusting, to the point of being inedible. They’ve put some new heinous seasoning into the beef patty and ruined the whole burger. At least, in my opinion. Does anyone else share my sentiment? I’m worried that I’m the only one who feels this way and that they’ll never bring back the originals.

Easy answer. Mcs*** is a staple food for bogans.

Oportos Belconnen was still a going concern at least last Thursday.

Where the service and the food is crap – and I can talk legitimately on Woden and Tuggers stores. Once turned up to Nandos in Woden and asked for chips and burger at about 12pm on a week day – was told that the chips would be about half an hour wait as they hadn’t even put them on yet – lunch time in a busy shopping area with many office workers about to teem out. They have also failed several times to listen to the order correctly.

We usually go to Grill’d as they seem to be prepared for customers and they cater well (probably too well) for kids.

Personally always thought Oporto was better than Nandos.

Civic and Woden have been purged from their locations map http://www.oporto.com.au/locations/map.aspx

A franchisee dispute?

Probably because they went from serving great tasting chilli chicken burgers (particularly at the original stores in Sydney) to stale crappy tasting things.

The wonders of franchises and being bought out by bigger competition.
