We were going to go out for breakfast on Sunday. But the boy’s only request was that he wanted ‘a really big strawberry milkshake, the kind served in a metal cup.’
This led to a disagreement about the best breakfast place for this, and so the suggestion was made to nix breakfast and head to lunch instead. At Captain America’s Hamburger Heaven.
Conveniently located not so far from our house, this outer Eastern suburbs burger joint is looking a little worse for wear, and the closed door even has you questioning if they are open!
But despite its rough appearance, they offer extremely friendly service and good, classic burgers.
We started with onion rings, because the rule is that if they are on the menu, they must be ordered! It was a good effort, nice and crunchy, although the slices of onion were a tad too thick for me.
Moving to the mains, I had the mushroom burger on a gluten free bun. My only complaint is that the bun was a little large for the burger patty, but aside from that, a good burger with just enough mushroom to not overpower the flavour.
The boy ordered the Mexicana Burger, a beef burger with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, chilli and cheese, served with chips, corn chips and guacamole. He enjoyed it very much, and made the big declaration that this place is better than Mistys Diner!
Also, he rather enjoyed his strawberry milkshake 🙂
A good place if you are wanting to eat many calories and gorge!
