Following in the tradition of Westfield food courts, Charlie & Co. Burgers is horribly overpriced; burgers ranging from $14-16 and chips starting at $7. They may have a small area for private seating, but when it comes down to it, we’re still talking about a fast food burger from a food court. Regardless, Charlie & Co. still attract large queues, with signs indicating that their burgers are worth the wait (no mention of the cost).
Most of their beef burgers feature a Waguyu patty, and admittedly, it’s a pretty good quality and taster patty. Their are also chicken, vegetable and fish of the day (with an actual fish fillet rather than patty) burgers. Most come with caramelised onions, but if you want the luxury of salad, you’ll need to purchase one of the more expensive burgers or pay the extra $1-1.50 per topping. The buns are quite nice, and bigger than what you’ll find at most burger joints, they’re also not particularly greasy which against the trend of many of the “gourmet” burger outlets popping up nowadays.
If Charlie & Co. weren’t so expensive, I’d rate them pretty highly, I mean the party did taste good quality. When you pay $14 for a food court burger and all you get is a patty, onions and sauce, it’s hard to be impressed.
