It was the Australia Day long weekend, and I was spending time down on the Mornington Peninsula. Looking for places to eat for lunch and I spot a place on my burger radar called “It’s a Burger” in Rosebud. Very “American Diner” looking with the décor and menu following suit.
Whilst I debated in my head about which burger to try out, being a fan of chicken in a burger, I couldn’t resist going for the “Grand Farmhouse” which comes with beef, fried chicken, streaky bacon, pickles, American cheddar, butter lettuce and special sauce. I also felt it was a good decision when the guy taking my order simply smiled and said “nice choice” – expectations were lifted immediately!
This was a great sized burger – not too big, not too small. I felt like Goldilocks! First bite and I was hooked. It tasted so good. Nice juicy patty, crispy bacon (but not too crispy), the right amount of sauce that had the right amount of zing to it and a neat, soft bun too. The other great thing was that the chicken was not at “burn the crap out of your mouth” temperature, it was a warm “woofable” temperature, which made it so much easier to enjoy.
Chips on the side were actually traditional thin cut French fries and they were awesome too.
Overall, I likened the style of the burger to a Bettys Burger or Royal Stacks, and the quality was just as good too. Highly recommend this place and it is definitely worth trying out if you’re down that way.
