Prepare to drill another notch in your belt peeps, ‘cause this diet-crushing burger joint is en route and we’re quietly confident you’re gonna bloody love it!
Just when we thought the city’s obsession with burgers had reached its threshold (who were we kidding?), Byron Bay’s hottest burger bar announces they’re setting sail across the border; staking a claim on Broadbeach, along with our waistlines.
Main Street Burger Bar has been kicking serious goals since opening early 2016. After witnessing a swag of happy faces visiting from the Gold Coast, they thought it was high time they saved us all the drive, delivering a slice of that Byron Bay vibe and their juicy creations right to our doorstep.
While we don’t want to serve up all the meaty news at once, we’ve been told you can expect the same kicking cool atmosphere, funky tunes, handcrafted (boozy) sodas and shakes, craft beers, cocktails, and only the best produce being prepped and cooked in the kitchen by fair dinkum chefs.
Start starving yourself now in preparation for burgers loaded with spiced buttermilk-fried chicken, grass-fed beef patties, and smokey BBQ pulled pork. Or, for the vegos, a pulled chipotle braised jackfruit burger topped with smashed avo, black beans, and corn. There’s even a classic Ten Buck Burger that sells for, surprise surprise, 10 bucks (we’re looking at you, tight arses). And us? We’ve totes got our stretchy pants ready for The Fancy Joe, with double the beef, double-smoked bacon, double-aged red cheddar, raw beetroot, and truffle oil. Ermagawd.
Despite our fondness for burgers the size of our heads, our environ-conscious selves can be comforted knowing these guys use only 100 per cent organic grass-fed beef, free range pork, happy chooks, and locally-sourced seafood. ‘Nuff said.
Those in the vicinity of Broadbeach’s long-established Oasis Shopping Plaza will have already noticed works are well underway to give the exterior perimeter yet another foodie shakeup. Come April, Main Street Burger Bar will be gunning for the title of the best burgers on the Gold Coast and joining the ranks alongside The Loose Moose and Hatch & Co., with hint of even more eating joints still to follow.
Stack ‘em up, Main Street. We’re ready for you.
