Livestock branding is a common practise in a town like Parkes surrounded by cattle farmers, but have you ever seen burger branding? If you have not been to the Burger Hub at 263 Clarinda Street, you have missed out according to loads of accolades bestowed on this establishment as satisfied customers rave on its Facebook page.
“This is just what Parkes needs, something different, something top shelf gourmet food; Best food and best people; Food was so good and service was amazing.”
Only three weeks after opening, and owners Jason McGuire and Sophie Meek are still completely overwhelmed by the response of the public. “We returned to Parkes with the idea of starting a business. We decided on doing burgers on our way back from Canberra one day,” said Jason.
Over his 18 years of being a chef at the Parkes Services Club to the Whale Bone Wharf in Port Macquarie and a few others in between, Jason has gained valuable experience and ideas and these came to good use when creating the Burger Hub’s menu.
“We are more American style influenced and have special sauces, but most important for us is to make everything in house or source locally as far as possible. We are not a fast food restaurant, and make every single patty by hand, as well as all our sauces, while the bread rolls are baked locally.”
All tastes, diets and appetites are catered for with gluten free options available, a herbivore burger for vegetarians, and a double up option for everything between the two bread buns for only $6 extra.
The industrious couple has many plans up their sleeves to keep the Hub humming, but for the time being make sure to get in early from Tuesdays to Saturdays to lay your hands on one of those branded burgers as they are still selling out regularly.
