So why Brooklyn Depot?
She says: He is just so good at this. I feel like I should have a permanent answer to this question that I cut and paste every time that says “He found this joint. He is a genius at burger stalking. I honestly believe He could find good burgers even if the internet didn’t exist”.
He says: Convenient location and a great looking (American styled) menu made us heed the call to Brooklyn Depot.

Tell us about the Depot Burger?
He says: I’m always appreciating some double patty action so was pretty stoked with this one. Unfortunately the patties definitely erred on the overcooked side of things. Massive fan of the addition of pineapple, hickory smoked bacon and a wonderful Depot special sauce. If only there was a bit more pink in that patty.
She says: I only ever order the double if my arm has been twisted (or if it has been so long between doubles that I feel bad). It really relies on the meat, the quality and how well it was cooked. Here the quality was pretty good but as he says it was a bit overcooked. Despite that I liked this burger, more so once I removed the second patty. And let it be known, I am a total pineapple convert – and with the bacon and the cheese, oh lordy!
So then, how did you find the Chicky Babe Burger?
He says: A solid burger with on point chicken, slaw and chipotle mayo. Not really a fan of the so called ‘cowboy caviar’ as its black bean flavour was a little jarring when combined with everything else here.
She says: I liked this burger – the beans were a little jarring but over all, crispy chook and cheese with coleslaw, always gets me.
Now, what about the sides?
He says: The winglets (we chose spicy buffalo sauce) were top notch, the garbage fries tasty as fuck, maclovin balls had their moments but were a little dull, and the Gringo shake was as delicious as it sounded on the menu.
She says: The sides were super trashy and would be awesome to share with a big group – we were massive pigs and got heaps to ourselves.
