We went on the $3.50 special day. I had a cheese burger and my wife had a tropical burger. The cheese burger was good. Not out of this world, but at the same time I do not recall ever saying that about a cheese burger....More

Knew I was on a winner when rocking up here and saw the tables filled with locals. Great burgers and very reasonably priced. If looking for an economical, family friendly meal then Palace Takeaways is a must.

So we had heard that the burgers were pretty good here and they lived up to expectation. If you go there, I must recommend the "wet cheeseburger" - unique, delicious, juicy, yummy!
