It has been a while since I ate such tasty burgers. At the Roo's Leap they sure have have a good choices of burgers, and they all are delicious (well, based on the fact I tried three of them). I would definitely recommend this to all burger-lovers

Very friendly staff. We all had the monster Bob which none of us managed to finish! The food was great and very reasonably priced. Have been here 2 weekends in a row and both visits were just as good. Recommended.

As an Australian who has tasted the Aussie Burger many times, I am pleased to say that Roos Leap version of the Aussie Burger is amazing! The burger is big, juicy and tasty.

Hot wing starters were good, the hot dog less so - very similar in taste / texture to the hotdogs available at the cinema, rather than the more authentic frank / beef dogs available in many diners / bbq...
