Brooklyn Depot has recently rolled out your new favourite weekday event – Frat Tuesdays – which is every bit as rowdy and fun-filled as you’d imagine.
Featuring a beer pong challenge, copious board games, a hostess on roller skates and bottomless fries, you’re guaranteed a good time every Tuesday from 5pm.
There’s a DJ spinning old school tunes, cocktail specials and $1 wicked wings along with all the other American-style eats Brooklyn Depot is famous for.
Let’s start with the fries – there are way too many delicious options to choose from but in the interest of fitting in a burger too, go with the Garbage fries – doused in bacon, onion strings, cheese sauce and frickles (crispy fried pickles!).
Mac ‘n’ Cheese should also grace your table due to the multi-cheese factor. It’s made with Gruyere, Mozarella and Parmesan, baked in béchamel sauce and topped with crispy bacon bits. It doesn’t get much cheesier than that.
Handcrafted burgers and Hot Dawgs are Brooklyn Depot’s pièce de résistance and there are more options than you can poke a sauce-filled syringe at (see below).
The Filthy Pilgrim is a must-try with succulent turkey breast, homemade gravy, rustic roasted potatoes with garlic, melted brie cheese, herbed stuffing crumble and cranberry mayo. It’s a mouthful in more ways than one!
For the carnivores, don’t go past the Fuhgeddaboudit. It involves a grass fed beef patty, beef chilli, American cheese, onion rings, chilli relish and your choice of lethal injection hot sauce, which you literally inject into the burger via syringe. Who says it’s rude to play with your food.
Frat Tuesday’s, get involved.
HOURS: 11am until late daily.
LOCATION: The 4217, Beach Road, Surfers Paradise.
