Thursday cheeseburger special at Old Faithful Bar & BBQ, Perth

Old Faithful

I’m lucky enough to work just around the corner from Old Faithful Bar & BBQ on King Street just out of the Perth CDB, although I usually grab lunch to take back to the office so it’s not somewhere I eat that often. Besides, it feels a little odd to go to a rather small, dark bar in the middle of the day…

The last few times I’ve visited it’s been fairly quiet and more lunch-like than bar-like, however a couple of weeks ago we went to try the Thursday-only double cheeseburger special ($17) and it was very busy. All of the tables were occupied so we had to sit at the bar and were continually pestered to buy a drink, which was a little off-putting when we were just there to eat. Thankfully our food arrived quickly and we were in and out in under 30 minutes.

I’m loving being able to get a decent burger in Perth, and now I have Old Faithful, Ribs & Burgers and East Village all within walking distance of my work. It’s a hard life.

Old Faithful I’m keen to sample some of the ribs and meat available at Old Faithful, I’ve only ever had a roll or burger and haven’t been disappointed – this one is pulled pork and slaw.

Old FaithfulI tried this the last time I visited, being physically incapable of resisting anything orange flavoured. It was an interesting drink, with a very strong flavour of vanilla.
