Fat Freddy’s Beach Bar & Diner
Located beneath the Avani tower on Surf Parade in Broadbeach, Fat Freddy’s Bar & Diner offers a reimagined take on classic American eats and drinks. The menu starts with beer-friendly bites like barbecue-spiced popcorn tossed in bacon butter, breaded bacon bits with candied chilli, wagyu beef jerky with smoked-ale cream, and decadent four-cheese mac’n’cheese croquettes blanketed in parmesan. From there, you move on with a Lousiana-style po’ boy with poached Moreton Bay bug and salted-lemon mayo on a buttery roll, the New York street-style hot dog topped off with mustard, white-onion relish, smoked ketchup and crisp onions, and loaded tater tots topped with grilled ricotta, chilli salt, jalapeno and optional beef brisket. At Freddy’s, the classic cheeseburger is served simply with American cheddar, onions, mustard and ketchup, or you can get stuck into a striploin with onion rings and brisket-fat gravy. To sip? Think boozy milkshakes, spiked sodas, tap beers and an endless selection of American whiskies. Late-night snackers are in luck, with Fat Freddy’s dishing up eats until 11:00 pm every night, guaranteed.
