For gourmet hot dogs and good times you can’t go past the Wiener Haus.
The much-loved local food truck, offering gourmet hot dogs and sodas with a side of tongue-in-cheek, has put down permanent roots at Stocklands Burleigh.
A stand alone timber and black shipping container is the new home of the Wiener Haus and judging by their opening day crowds, it’s going to be a saucy success.
Offering authentic German Kranskies loaded with a variety of gourmet toppings, the food truck opened in 2013 with the slogan no d*#k jokes.
Their sense of humour, which extends to the menu, has made them household names from Brisbane to Byron Bay.
The ‘Ron Burgundy’ is a traditional hot dog with tasty cheese, red onion and Sauerkraut, the ‘Sanchez’ is made up of sour cream, guacamole, salsa, with jalapeños and corn chips and the ‘Italian Stallion’ is a pizza style dog with tomato and herb sauce, bocconcini, pepperoni and melted tasty cheese.
The Wiener Haus also makes their own sodas in flavours like ‘Granny Smith and Ginger’, ‘Lemon and Lemon Myrtle’ and ‘Pink Lady and Raspberry’.
Exciting times for foodies up and down the coast who need never wait until the weekend for their wiener fix again.
HOURS: 12pm to 8.30pm daily.
LOCATION: Stocklands Burleigh Heads (next to Nook Espresso), West Burleigh Road.
Burgers that glisten, concrete ice cream, thick shakes and cold beers. The apple of Surfer’s eye, this retro themed beach shack will have you coming back time and time again.
Your mouth will water in anticipation for Betty’s Burgers, Betty’s Classic; angus beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and Betty’s special sauce, go deluxe and add pickles and bacon. Enjoy with a side of crispy onion rings and a Peanut Butter thick shake.
Prefer the bird instead? Go the Crispy Chicken; southern fired chicken, lettuce, tomato and Betty’s special sauce. For the vegetarian, a Shroom Burger; crisp fried mushrooms filled with melted gouda and gruyere cheese, lettuce, tomato and Betty’s special sauce.
For the sweet tooth the Concrete Ice cream is a must, “concrete ice cream” you say? Rich, creamy frozen custard set and scraped from the barrel then mixed with the Betty’s goods like hot fudge sauce, dello mano classic brownie, Krispy Kreme doughnuts or marshmallow sauce.
With a menu offering the goods how cold you not be smiling ear to ear. A fun and funky fit out that can be described as french provincial meets a 70’s summer, bright bubbly staff and even a beach comber in store. Betty’s Burgers will be your new found addiction and forever happy place.
