I love Scoopon and what I love even more about Scoopon is when I get a really good deal for a really great place, and that is what I got with the Local Burger Co in Croydon. For $12 we got a deal where you get a burger, chips and a drink such as a milkshake or house made lemonade.. What a deal!!
The local burger co is a chain of burger restaurants, but you would not know that when walking in. As I hustled my family in out of the rain we were met with a cosy little burger cafe amongst a strip of shops in Croydon. The smell, the chatter and the visuals grabbed my attention straight away and I was eager to try their food.
A lovely lady dressed in 1950s clothes greeted us and showed us all to a table. We were given menus and told that when we were ready we could just order at the counter. This was a teenie off putting as I thought being such a cosy cafe wait services would be offered, however I was not too fussed haha.
Those of you who have been following me would know that I love bacon, so naturally I chose the Beef, bacon and cheese burger. My husband being a little different chose the Classic chicken burger. For drinks I had the Raspberry milkshake, hubby had the Salted caramel milk shake and Miss 15 had the Peanut butter milkshake.
A bowl of chips came out first and I was a little confused as we had ordered 3 bowls of chips. We mentioned this to the waitress and she let us know that they were coming along with the rest of the food. I relaxed a little as we sat around sharing the most yummiest chips ever!
My Beef, bacon and cheese burger came first with chips and it looked amazing. One mouthful and I was in burger heaven. The burger was just so so so good! There were elements of spices such as nutmeg and possibly a little ginger that danced on my taste buds and everything was cooked to perfection!
Next came out the Classic chicken burger, or as I like to call it, The classic chicken tower! Ingredients were abundant with this burger with layers of chicken high enough to please any poultry lover. I took a bite of Hubbys burger and it was delightful! Soft, tasty, popping with flavour and fresh.
The shakes were just as good as the food. I tried each flavour and could not decide which one I liked the best. However I am partial towards peanut butter!
Our night was really enjoyable. The food was perfect and I could not fault, the service was friendly and the atmosphere cosy.
I give The local burger co in Croydon a delicious 9/10!
