Miss Kays - Brisbane CBD

After our wonderful experience at Melt Brothers, owners Justin and Felix passed on our contact to the management of Miss Kay's Burgers, which the also happen to have founded (pretty awesome life achievements imo). Receiving a gracious invite from the manager, the Tomcat family and I soon found ourselves at their CBD store to try out a few of their menu options. 

Decor was largely the same as last time with its red brick theme and neon lighting. Tres American. Unlike last time though, the upstairs seating was fenced off and we had the whole area to ourselves, which we really appreciated. 


As expected from a burger joint, the menu consisted mainly of burgers with some sides and a focus on shakes, the true American way. Ordering at the counter downstairs, we were given a number and waiting patiently for our food.

Luckily it came quite soon to much oohing and aahing. 

This was the signature double cheeseburger. It came with two patties, double cheese, mustard, ketchup, onions, pickles and miss Kay's sauce. The bun was served fresh where I would have preferred it toasted. Both patties erred on the side of being well done, where I would have preferred it to be on the rarer side, but the sauces added much to the texture. 

Whilst we were keen to try out this month's special, mozzarella burger, that was sold out and we were recommended the poutine burger, cos who doesn't like chips on their burger. Other than chips, it also contained a beef patty, bacon bits, haloumi, gravy, pickles, lettuce and mayo. It was by far my favourite burger that meal. The gravy and chips made the burger a very comforting and homey experience while the pickle added some extra zing to the burger, and the haloumi added some depth to the overall texture. 

Our third and last burger was the Get Clucked. It contained a very healthy piece of lemon pepper chicken breast, pineapple, guacamole, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. Like the beef, the chicken also erred on the cooked side and was a bit dry. This was slightly alleviated by the mayo, but could have been better. Given the pairing of guacamole and pineapple, this was the freshest tasting of our burgers, drawing sharp contrast to the poutine burger. It had a decidedly summery theme to it and whilst not the type that I would usually order, I still found it to be quite enjoyable. 

On top of out three burgers, we also had three sides. These were the onion rings which came super crunchy and freshly fried. Whilst Tomcat found the batter to lean towards the thicker side, I found it to be quite delicious and part of the onion ring experience. 

We also had a serve of sweet BBQ wings. Given the sauce, the skin was as expected no longer crispy, and the sauce absorbed well into the meat, giving it a very smoky, sweet, and tangy taste. 

Our final side was of course the dirty fries, topped with Miss Kay's seasoning, cheese sauce, tomato chilli and chives, the flavors exploded in my mouth. The fries were deliciously crunchy and soaked well in the sauces. The chives added a whole new dimension and I couldn't help but think it would be perfect if it had added bacon bits. 

Drinks included the Cee Lo Green and Puff daddy milk shakes. Both were amazingly rich and creamy with delectable minty and caramel tastes accordingly. As you can see the portions were amazing, but we definitely needed water to clear our palate rather than be overwhelmed by the thickness of the drinks. Without a doubt, we really enjoyed our experience at Miss Kay's, whilst some improvements can always be made, the substance was all there and we would be back without a second thought.

Espresso and Matcha were invited guests of Miss Kays, but our opinions, as always are solely our own.
