Betty’s Burgers & Concrete Co
Betty’s Burgers started in Noosa, QLD, in 2014. The 1950s-inspired burger shack now has outlets across the country. Its first Adelaide restaurant opened in December 2018.
The menu is built around a staple burger, the Betty’s Classic, which sells for $10 and is a deliciously simple cheeseburger. Southern fried chicken, crispy pork belly and fried mushroom are some of the other main players on the list (you can swap in a gluten-free bun or order it bare – no bun, just a lettuce wrap), as well as thick shakes, wine, beer and soft drinks.
The “concrete” in the name is the frozen custard Betty’s serves, which is made in-house and served with custom mix-ins such as New York cheesecake, choc-chip cookie dough and bits of glazed doughnuts. The kiosk is filled with jars of sweets and Coca-Cola fountains.
The fit-out continues the brand’s signature weather-beaten beach shack vibe. There are wooden shingles, timber panelling and a whole lot of plastic ferns hanging from the roof.
