Located in the heart of Surfers Paradise, in the 4217 building, is Brooklyn Depot. For burger lovers, this place is heaven! For people visiting the Gold Coast, Brooklyn Depot is a short walk away from most accommodation and for locals, you can either catch public transport or park in the Bruce Bishop and get your ticket validated once you have finished your meal.
The kids enjoyed the Brooklyn Classic burgers with the biggest side of fries they had ever seen! My two older kids are in that in between age where kids meals are too small but adult meals are too much – these burgers were perfect.
I was after a bit of spice so I ordered the Nashville burger which included Southern Fried ‘Howlin’ hot chicken, coated in Nashville hot sauce, sliced lettuce, sliced pickles and chipotle mayo – the burger was huge!
Verdict? The kids loved their burgers and skinny fries along with some cheesy sticks and potato nachos. I also ate every single bite and even though I was busting at the seams, it left me wanting more. The portion sizes are bigger than average so you will definitely get your money’s worth.
Side note: While the kids wait for their meals, they can enjoy some colouring with colouring pencils and paper provided or they can enjoy playing a range of board games, cards or Jenga.
Brooklyn Depot definitely ticks the boxes for being family friendly. There is also some great art work on the walls and props around the place so you can ask the friendly staff to take some family snaps – they’ll all be framers, I promise!
Address: 4217 / 10 Beach Road, Surfers Paradise
