Royal Stacks is the newest Shake Shack inspired burger place to open up in Melbourne with the help of Dani Zeini who also opened Grand Trailer Park Taverna, Truck Stop Deluxe, Easey’s and Dandenong Pavilion. I was invited to attend pre-launch of Royal Stacks and all opinions expressed are my own.
It was baby A’s last day in Melbourne so we decided to grab lunch on my lunch break. The babies picked me up and off we went on an adventure.
My grandparents were in town and daddy bear wanted to take them to try out Ribs & Burgers (yes, he is more hip than I am) so we had a whole fam bam outing and made our way to the Northcote one at Northcote Plazza. Baby A suggested to make a booking since he said the eatery was quite small so I called up and they don’t take reservations (WHAT??? Why?? I don’t want to waittttt) and said there are usually seats free around 7:30PM so in we went.
8 bit has been around for a while now and they’ve opened up in the CBD and since my friend, Mr Slowpoke hadn’t tried it yet, we decided to head to Footscray to pop his 8 Bit cherry.
The new burger joint on the westside has opened up and it was St. Burgs. I haven’t been so stooge 1 (stooge 2 was out of action being sick) took me here to satisfy our burger cravings. It’s located in an apartment block and we got there at 6:30PM on a Thursday night and it was empty.
I finally got to come here and I decided to take Mr D out (Yes, I took him and not the other way around, Ka-ching!). We got there at 11:30am on a Saturday and thank god they open at 11:30am!
So I came here the second time to take baby A and J-baby for good burgers inside a train carriage.
Decided to finally go to Big Boy BBQ as I’ve heard lots of people raving on about it. Entered the little shop and it was such a boy’s place to dine. Sauces on the table, large plastic red cups and american slow cooked meats with unlimited soft drinks refill!! We couldn’t decide what to get so we finally decided to get the little boy platter to share amongst three (I’ve got a teeny tiny stomach and there was too much meat)! So on the platter we got the pulled lamb shoulder, saucy beef brisket and ½ lamb ribs! When it came out and was huge!! However, I found it to be a tad salty and it wasn’t really my cup of tea.
