Chose here because they had vegan options for my fiancée. Delicious burgers at good prices. The chips are definitely worth the extra.

After snorkeling all day on the reef, we were famished. We walked by & although we had really wanted something else -the smell drew us in. Had "The Mighty" with the low-carb bun - SIMPLY AMAZING.. Seriously,

Was just wandering around cairns looking for a place to eat and have a beer, came across this place and I had the best burger I've ever had. They use very fresh ingredients and I'd definitely recommend the panini bun!

Good and yummy burger for awesome price (for Australia!), french fries are really good (sauce is extra $.70). No A/C but there are fans and it feels good.

Fantastic burgers and chips as always. The mighty QLD is a great choice with everything packed in it. I prefer the Mighty Melbourne lol since I'm from Melbourne

Fast food burgers and fries but they have three vegetarian options which you can make vegan. In a place mainly known for seafood and meat this is very exciting to a vegan. I had the veggie vitality burger and fries which were delicious. Quick friendly service. My friends had salad and chicken burger and enjoyed them as well.

Courgette chips were deep fried not baked in oven as i thought originally. It was TOO salty. Veggie burger looked pre-made to me at a factory as it looked too perfect so not sure if made in restaurant ir not. Had mine with gluten free buns. The whole meal tastes nice as a one off but I won't come again.... More

The Grill'd bird & brie burgers are delicous! Served with cranberry sauce and fresh bun & chips. I love the zuccini chips. Service is always prompt.

Thank Jacolas
