Enjoy a classic burger, shake, and custard ice cream in the beach shack within Castle Towers.
First opening in Sunshine Coast, Betty’s Burgers expanded throughout Australia and Sydney now claims two joints in Darling Harbour and Castle Hill. There are two more locations to come soon in Bondi Junction and Manly Wharf.
Amidst the bustling Piazza of Castle Towers, Betty’s Burgers is one of the restaurants where you need to join a queue on the weekends. I was told there would be a thirty-minute wait and there were people waiting on the side of the queue waiting for their takeaway orders. The wait wasn’t too bad with workers walking up and down passing us menus and making conversation. The décor reminded me of sunny days alongside the beach, enjoying good food and cocktails with friends.
My friends and I all ordered Betty’s classic and we enjoyed the fresh ingredients and the simple but vibrant flavours. The leaf of lettuce was a bit big in comparison to the burger for our taste, but it seems to be part of the aesthetic. One of the servers recommended the Crispy Chicken and I also had my eye on the Pork Belly.
It was a shame that there was no option to make our orders a meal, but we opted to share French Fries with their Siracha Mayo sauce. The fries were well cooked and seasoned well: nice and simple French Fries.
I had wanted to order a Concrete (custard ice cream) after we finished our burgers, but I realised that I would have to join the back of the line to order ice cream! I instantly regretted not ordering it with the burgers and made a mental note to do so next time I came during the dinner rush.
Pros and Cons
The food was simple but fresh and well-cooked, we didn’t have any complaints! The service was attentive and friendly although most of the staff looked quite young. The only downside would have to be the wait in line but on a Saturday night, it’s not too surprising. It only shows how big the demand is!
My friends and I enjoyed our time at Betty’s and we are glad to have a burger place close to home. The affordable and simple burgers didn’t overwhelm us like the other burger towers Sydney has gotten accustomed to. I will probably come again during lunch time and test out their other classic flavours.
