What is happening to Brod Burger?

By Lala.C - 16 August 2010 22

Does any one know what is happening to brod burger? (You know, the red van that sits on the lake in Kingston)… They have the greatest burgers and while you have to wait it’s definately worth it!!! I’m hankering for a burger just thinking about it!

I have heard that they are apparently closing or being asked to move elsewhere. Can someone please confirm/deny this as it would be very sad to see them go!!!

Cheers 🙂

I don’t understand what all the fuss is. If people think these burgers are great you need to get out more, maybe it says something about the quality of food in the ACT.

Been there twice and the burger were ordinary at best, both times. It was ridiculously overpriced and the service adn wait times were disgusting. I spent 35 minutes in the cold surrounded for an overcooked, over-priced and way over-hyped burger that was already lukewarm at best.

Don’t care if it goes, it is nothing special.

I’ve just taken delivery of a whole container of newly minted bandwagons, made in South Korea and like their internet, guaranteed to spread fast. They all feature a finely crafted platform for jumping on, and the deluxe models come with a force field that makesit difficult for customers to jump ship. Mainly designed for Reiki and homeothapy practitioners, they are also ideal for fast food vendors and craft stores. These bandwagons have a guaranteed life of three months but businesses have been known to make them last quite a lot longer. Contact me for price and availability at http://www.bandwagons4u.com.au.

You know, I clicked on the link fully knowing what I would find. A little part of me hoped it existed.

I’m a pretty big fan of Brodburgers, but the wait times have put me off and we now make our “Brodburgers” at home. There’s less wait and guaranteed service with a smile!

I tried them once, when they were still fairly new, and I thought the burger was nice (but not spectacular), a bit expensive, and slow.

I haven’t bothered going back. If anything, this just highlights the crappy value Canberra offers food lovers generally.

What is happening to Brod Burger? Let me think… the service is getting worse for a start.

I thought I’d find out what all the hype was over.

Lined up for 15 minutes amongst some of the most stuck up and self absorbed people I have ever encountered, and all I received for it was a dodgy burger that wasn’t worth half the price. Tasted boring and was incredibly chewy.

Have fun lining up down there for that!

I heard there were second thoughts on forcing them to move for now. But I believe the powers that be still want to revamp the area they’re located to a more formal place to sell food.

Such a shame really, the informality of the location was part of the charm. It was a bit expensive sure and the wait was sometimes 25 minutes, but the food was good.

Jethro – there are plenty of things in life worth waiting 25 minutes for, a decent quality burger is just one of them.

25 mins… Such luxury!

The handful of times I have been there, it’s have almost always been a 45 minute wait.

That included one time when we arrived 15 minutes before opening and were first in the queue. Still had to wait 45 to get an overcooked burger.

They are nice, but definitely not worth the excessive waiting times.

their van is entirely the wrong shade of red…

No burger is worth waiting 25 minutes for. Like most of Canberra’s so-called ‘must-have’ food experiences, it is all a bit over-hyped IMHO. That being said it is in a nice little spot on the lake and it would be a shame to see them go.

As far as your question goes, why not email them and find out direct from the source?
