seanaussie Local Star

I'm Sean & I've lived in Sydney, Adelaide, Launceston & visited every state of Australia - that's why they call me seanaussie! So I've reviewed anywhere that either annoys me, amazes me or ably accepts me into their establishment! I hope my reviews help you as you travel around too.

  • BP

    Petrol & Service Stations Rosewater, SA
    Although it seems unusual to review a servo, this one's a cracker. They pack a whole lot into their 'On The Run' - a Wendy's, an incredibly tasty coffee bar, Wok in a Box, even a Subway. They're all clean and neat, and as far as I can tell prices were the same as you'd pay at their regular retail stores and certainly the food we had tasted just as good as elsewhere. Staff were friendly too, and it wasn't busy. Oh - they did have petrol too (and the obligatory expensive car wash)!
  • Chocolates Del Mondo

    Cafes Burwood, NSW
    Went on a week night and it wasn't too busy at all, didn't have to wait long to be welcomed and for the food to be ready. The menu is fantastically superbly yummily extensive (as long as you like chocolate - and if you don't, why are you reading this??) though prices were a bit high though not excessively so given what you get. Food lived right up to the expectation, the chocolate sauce was divine. It is true this can get busy on weekends but we avoided that time for that reason, looking at the previous review that seems a wise choice.
    Did I mention it was delicous? Delectable? Tasty? Yummo? It certainly is...
  • Wendy's

    Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Ingle Farm, SA
    Unfortunately while I was here they ran out of several items - hot dogs and cookies for shakes, and although they replaced them with alternatives it wasn't a great look. However what we had was certainly yummy, sweet, and the price is good. Staff were a reserved sort of friendly, but it is just an icecream spot.

    Visiting here today was like a rerun of a bad movie. Maybe the movie 'Frozen' - you'll see why in a minute!
    After 3 years of not visiting here, in a rush we came through today. Order taking was a bit quicker than 3 years ago, but it still ended up being a long visit as it took them ages to prepare our 3 tiny meals. It's a tiny kitchen but I counted 5 staff in it all looking at each other, perhaps trying to work out where the chicken was (they actually did run out of fillets after my order?!?)
    Then came the frozen bit. As my wife bit into her original fillet burger, she mentioned it was cold. Then she noticed the bread & lettuce was actually not just cold, but frozen! I took one feel of my zinger works burger and sure enough it was also cold. A bite confirmed that my bread & lettuce too was...frozen!
    So I went up to the counter (we were the only customers in the store). The staredown began as the 5 staff looked busily around at each other in the kitchen & I waited at the counter. After 1 minute had passed, I actually had to call out to them. To their credit when I gave them the burger they immediately offered to replace it (my wife had just taken off the frozen parts because she doesn't like lettuce anyway!). There was no apology, just an offer to replace it.
    After a couple of minutes they brought my burger to the table with a rather muted and very quick apology. I'm a bit confused about this as it was incredibly clear that there was a problem with the bun & lettuce: anyone who even took a brief feel of it would know that it was frozen, even through rubber gloves.
    Can you guess what happened next? Yep, a frozen re-run! I honestly thought I must have been imagining it, but got my wife to check and lo and behold my second zinger works burger also contained frozen lettuce and partially frozen bun. I really truly can't believe they didn't notice this this time.
    So I followed my wife's lead, took the lettuce out, broke off the frozen part of the bun & left vowing to never return again.
    (I did give them half a star as my daughter's popcorn chicken wasn't frozen...Infact they were so hot she couldn't eat them at first!!)
    • Just thought it fair to add that after I wrote this review they called me to sincerely apologise & offer a voucher for a free meal. Well done on their behalf.
