The owner of Charboys Burgers owner Shravan Gautam he has three recipes tattooed on his brain. One for the popular seasoning he uses on his fries, a second for his southern fried chicken and the third for his secret burger sauce. The ingredients aren’t written down anywhere. He hasn’t shared anything with anyone. It’s all in his head.
Charboys flips some of the very best burgers in Brisbane – deceptively simple creations defined by the quality of their ingredients: custom-ground Wagyu beef patties, crisp-fried chicken, fresh brioche buns, crunchy hydroponic lettuce.
The space has a straightforward fit-out: polished concrete floors and simple wooden tables put together by Huni's Recycled Pallet and Timber Furniture. Elsewhere, there are a few clusters of pedant lights, a heap of Charboys’ signature greenery – and that’s about it.
Charboys has nine burgers on the menu, including vegetarian options with lentil patties. There’s also soft-serve ice-cream, milkshakes and a rotating selection of beers (both craft and major labels).
