In­ter­na­tional Cheese­burger Day to­day

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

TO­DAY is In­ter­na­tional Cheese­burger Day and Childers is jumping on board to cel­e­brate.

Be­han’s Bar and Grill owner Jef­frey Be­han has 12 dif­fer­ent burg­ers on his menu and said the Aussie burger and the Mex­i­can burg­ers were usu­ally the most popular, but ex­pected they would be over­shad­owed to­day by his Amer­i­can cheese­burger.

“I bloody hope so,” Mr Be­han said.

Mr Be­han has owned the Churchill St business for five years, but has worked in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try for 25 years and started out his pas­sion as a baker.

“I love it (hos­pi­tal­ity), I live and breathe it ev­ery day, it’s a good pro­fes­sion,” Mr Be­han said.

But from baker to burg­ers, Mr Be­han said he has ex­pe­ri­enced some very in­ter­est­ing re­quests from

Jef­frey Be­han We get strange re­quests ev­ery day, peo­ple are crazy.

cus­tomers at his Churchill St store.

He said peo­ple some­times re­quested an Aussie burger with­out beet­root.

“Beet­root is Aus­tralian,” he said.

Mr Be­han said another cus­tomer re­quested no pineap­ple on her burger to avoid it be­ing soggy.

“Then she asked for a runny egg in­stead,” Mr Be­han said.

“We get strange re­quests ev­ery day, peo­ple are crazy.”

Jenny Lazell and Kevin Bos­ton were trav­el­ling through Childers from Townsville when they stopped in to Be­han’s Bar and Grill last week and said they were un­aware of Cheese­burger Day.

But Ms Lazell said she un­der­stood the at­trac­tion of the cheese­burger.

“Ev­ery­one loves cheese, meat and fresh buns,” she said.

But while Mr Bos­ton agreed cheese­burg­ers did “taste nice” he said his favourite was quite spe­cific.

“I like a ba­con and egg burger, no onion,” he said.
