“Hamburgers that cant compete with the Big M!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

The food here is fantastic. Such a simple, fresh idea to do healthy and fresh hamburgers for people with all sorts of eating needs..ie gluten free, vegans etc. The burger menu is extensive and so hard to select from. The line up out the door was evident its a great place. The line moved pretty quickly and our food came out at a reasonable time too so dont be put off by the line up. The food speaks for itself as a result. Not too much conversation around the table when the burgers arrived. They were delicious! Great friendly staff.
One of our best meals out in Cairns. Well done to the owners of Grill'd!

“Veggie alternatives - a plus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Always on the look out for a restaurant that provides both a regular menu and vegetarian alternatives - this is it. Have the Bombay burger, oh so good. Just finger licking good. Great location on the esplanade. Young eager wait staff always right there! For those interested in watching their meal being prepared find a seat near the kitchen. They appeared to have high standards for cleanliness and food preparation.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Visited twice in past 6 weeks & both times we have received excellent service & a quality meal. As locals we love to promote locals businesses where possible & the Owner of Grill'd is doing something right.
Ordered the Queenslander burger both times & to say that it filled me up was an understatement, dinner was skipped later on both occasions & I left the Restaurant fully satisfied. Atmosphere is great especially if you sit near the front & enjoy people watching, no lack of entertainment along the Esplanade.
Very happy to recommend Grill'd to anyone who wants a great meal at a great price.

“The standard remains high no matter what state you're in.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

I usually eat from the Melbourne stores as i live there, but having seen this place whilst on holiday in cairns, I didn't think twice about giving them a go up here.

I was not disappointed. What a chain this is! the standard is so high in every store I've tried (4 now). The concept is so simple, good quality ingredients and a good price. Please spend the little extra few dollars and upgrade from Macca's - at least you'll know what you're eating!

“A stack of goodness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Great taste and great price for what you get.
If you want "Mackers" style and price you won't find that here. I do not regret choosing this restaurant for the easy hassle free meal we were looking for. The prices are from $10.50 up to around $16.50 but you don't need the most expensive to satisfy your pallet. You get your choice of bun type. The fries did not come with the meal but we ordered a regular size to share. We loved the taste they were flavoured with herbs and salt were mouth-watering and very "Moorish" We were also very impressed with the friendly service we got when ordering. There are 3 types of dips to choose from to go with your fries the fee is minimal. (.70c) Our burgers were delicious and very filling. You would be hard pressed to walk out of Grill'd hungry.
A good thing about the restaurant is that even give back to the community. You are given tokens every time you come into the restaurant and you can choose one of the selected charity groups you would like to put you tokens towards. At the end of the month the charity with the most tokens gets a donation of 300. The other two also gets a small donation of 100 each. How good is that. Way to go Grill'd!
