Bloody good bogan burger brings out best of Rocky
GARTH Ramsay couldn't contain his excitement when he took his first bite into the new Aussie Bogan Burger.
The 22-year-old boilermaker said it was "better than your typical pub burger” and wanted to recommend it to his mates.
Recently, the Aussie Bogan Burger resurfaced
on to the menu at O'Dowd's Irish Pub in Rockhampton after disappearing for a number of years.
Garth's first thought of the burger was "there are a lot of flavours and it's massive”.
The Rockhampton man said he considered himself a bogan because of his lack of dress code, love of beer and, of course, his mullet.
When it comes to hobbies, Garth said drinking beer was number one.
But the mullet won't be around for long.
He'll be shaving it off in March for World's Greatest Shave in honour of a family friend who lost his battle with leukaemia before Christmas.

latest addition to their menu, which was once
called the "Central Queensland Bogan
The large burger
contains an Angus beef pattie, chicken schnitzel, bacon, cheese, onion, pineapple, beetroot, lettuce, tomato, barbecue sauce and aoli.
Miss Butler said the inspiration behind its colourful name was its
size and the amount of meat on the burger.
"We wanted to put something on the menu
that is massive, to challenge people,” she said.
A previous chef had suggested for staff to reserect the burger from an old menu.
