The Brisbane burger institution with the mostest, Ben’s Burgers have spent most of the last four years knocking our socks off with the powerful and classic combo of patty, bun and sauce. Their reputation precedes them by such a stretch that we have been driven hog-wild by the latest news that Ben’s is on the verge of expanding into the Caxton Street strip THIS. FRIDAY.
We shit you not, fam.
For anyone unfamiliar with Ben’s Burgers, you really only need to know that these guys are purists of the holiest order. Their burgs are made with only the best quality produce, and crafted to look and taste as classic and perfect as possible. Given this laser focus, Ben’s offers excellence in just three burger iterations: the 'Classic' with beef, cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mustard and mayo; the 'Cheesy' with beef, cheese, pickles, onion and special sauce; and the 'Veg' with mushroom, parmesan, Swiss cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion and aioli. This holy trinity has put Ben’s OG Winn Lane digs on the map, and now they’re gearing up to expand by bringing their burgs to the Caxton strip with the help of Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall.
This collab will see everyone doing what they do best, with Lefty’s providing live entertainment and whisky apples, and Ben’s taking over the food operation. They’ll be grilling from 5pm until 11.30pm every Wednesday to Sunday night, offering the full menu from the Winn Lane location plus a few surprise extras you’ll have to come by and check out for yourself.
If this news gets your blood pumping you’ll be pleased to know that Ben’s first day of Caxton trade is THIS FRIDAY. TOMORROW. THE THIRD OF AUG. Run don’t walk, you gotta earn those carbs.
What: Ben’s Burgers Caxton Street
Where: Lefty’s Old Time Music Hall
