After a long day in the sun, it was time for dinner and after a disappointing burger at lunch time, I was keen to turnaround the fortunes of the day. This time, I was at IronBar Saloon in the main street of Port Douglas. This place is most famous for the toad races they hold each night, but before that I needed to fill up on something tasty.
I ordered the self explanatory, “Double Beef Burger” which came with (surprise, surprise) double beef, bacon, cheese and tomato chutney. This burger was a beast. It was heavy when I picked it up and once I got the right grip, got stuck into it straight away. The meat was so tasty and nothing short of sensational. The bacon was not crispy and cooked to perfection. Topped with the the cheese being on point too. As soon as I finished, I actually said “that was one of the best American styled cheeseburgers I’ve ever had!” and mark my words, it was. Add in a few cold beers and you’ve got yourself some of the best fun you can have with your clothes on. Seriously.
It was surprising that a small bar known for racing toads would produce such an amazing burger. That’s one of the things I love about this adventure, you never know what you’re going to get. Or is that a box of chocolates instead? Hmmmmmm not sure?!
If you are in Port Douglas make sure you make the trip to IronBar Saloon, not just for the toad racing fun, but to try out their Double Beef Burger – you won’t regret it, so hop to it! (Yes, that just happened!! Lol)
