The wait is over for Southside Greasy's fans - the Canberra burger store is opening in Woden on Sunday as part of the Westfield Bradley Street dining precinct.
While Grease Monkey has had a food truck on Hindmarsh Drive in Woden for the past couple of years, this is the first time it will have a permanent store in the area.
Grease Monkey director Nick Tuckwell said the southside had been really supportive of the pop-up "The Pitts" and it was time to give them a permanent dose of the Grease.
"Our food truck has been set-up at The Pitts for the past two years and the Woden community has got right behind us, so it's great we can now open the doors on a permanent shop," he said.
"The past couple of years has been really challenging for the Canberra food scene, and we want to thank everyone that has supported us. We're really proud we've been able to continue our plans to expand and open more Greasy's in the ACT."
