Getta Burger - West End

After a substancial hiatus, the burger connoisseur has returned to review another burger joint with me when he heard that Getta Burger opened in West End. With the recent rains in Brisbane, we braved the storm and arrived there dripping wet for dinner.

Upon arrival, the big cow decoration really caught our attention. Being surrounded with descriptions
of how the meat has been cooked, I definitely found it to be both interesting and informative. We ordered at the counter and were given a number, although food was brought out to us.

 Hot sauce was available on the table, and cutlery was also provided.

Our food arrived before long, and was served on a tray. with extra forks provided for the dirty fries.

Lemon water was provided on a DIY basis. I enjoyed the nice difference it had to regular tap water.

Burger connoisseur ordered the signature "Getta Burger", which came in a sesame bun and contained a beef patty, lettuce, onion, tomato relish and cheese. 

On the other hand, I ordered the "Getta Lot" burger without pickles. It came with bacon, a beef patty, double cheese, onion, tomato and lettuce. I was quite impressed with the ability to make alterations, as I am well aware that some restaurants do not allow changes. 
Burger connoisseur and I came to a consensus about our opinions of both burgers. In terms of the bun, whilst it was soft and fresh, we would have liked an option of a different type such as a brioche or ciabatta bun like Grilld or Miel. The patty was nicely cooked and slightly pink on the inside, sufficiently thick and had a good texture to it. The only thing we both agreed on was that it really needed a bit more seasoning to give it more flavour. The tomato and lettuce was fresh and crunchy, as was the bacon. The cheese was deliciously melted on top of the beef patty was strung out when we bit into it. Whilst the burger wasn't particularly impressive in terms of taste, we were very surprised by the generous portions of the burger. It definitely filled us up.

What we really loved though, was the famous "filthy fries", which were shoestring fries (my favourite), served with braised beef, pulled pork, onion, bacon and covered with melty cheese and sauce. It was very rich and full of flavour, but the chips could have been a bit crunchier. Like with the burger, the portions were very generous.We absolutely loved it.
