Visited on the $12 Thursday. The heisenburger has got to be one of the best burgers I've ever had. And $5 Stone and Wood to wash it all down 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

The big Kahuna was the bomb. I donot mind paying good money for good food and even though this burger cost me $18 it was worth every single cent! Would have been nice to come with a small side of fries as my wife shared some of hers and the fires were also excellent. All round fantastic experience, highly recommend!

We halved the Alamaba Slammer burger, because they are absolutely huge! It was really tasty and they had good options and combinations. The drinks were quite expensive though, like most bars on the Gold Coast.

Hubby and I went here with our daughter and some friends. Hubby ordered the mini-phat and calls it the best burger he has ever had! Would definitely recommend! Arrive early as it gets pretty busy!

A wonderful experience of American culture under the Q1 hotel. It was a bit pricey compared to your usually burger place but once you have a bite it's worth the money and the wait! Definantly a 5 star Bar/Cafe.
