As a Gungahlin resident, I try to purchase as much as possible at my local shops. Something I encourage, to maintain a thriving suburb! While I shop, I chat with the locals. So I thought, why not interview them and share their stories with the Gungahlin community. Here is one story & watch this space for many more….

Background of the business?

Grease Monkey began operating out of our Lonsdale St location since June 2015. Specialising in American style burgers and fried chicken, with a great range of Australian craft beers and wines. We have since become a crowd favourite amongst locals and interstate travellers. Since opening, we have sold close to 1,000,000 burgers and have since added Detroit-style pizza to the menu. We’ve expanded to a food truck and now a venue in Gungahlin!

Products & services you provide?

Besides burgers, pizza and beers, we offer our visitors a great space to enjoy those beers or a slice of pizza with some mates. Working closely with The Market Place, we’ve managed to create a little slice of Grease Monkey heaven. We’ve carved out our own spot in a new laneway covered in some of the best street art in the ACT, it makes you feel like you’re tucked away somewhere in Melbourne or Sydney.

We’ve got 6 big screen TV’s, a sound system that’ll blow your hair back and we’re open from 11am til late every night.

Although we’re in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions, we’re still able to cater to dine in, although it’s best you ring ahead to book.

We can’t wait to get this place up and running at full capacity, we think it’ll be one of the best places for a night out in Gungahlin.



Why set up in Gungahlin?

Gungahlin is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia. We see the future of the Gungahlin hospitality scene as one to keep an eye on and we would love to be a part of that growth.

There is a great variety in demographics across Gungahlin, with students, young adults and families making up a significant part of the community. Grease Monkey is perfectly suited to the Gungahlin community!

What do you love about the Gungahlin area?

Gungahlin has such a diverse community that’s constantly growing. We’re excited to be a part of the landscape here. We hope to grow along with it!


The perfect way to get to know the locals is to interview them! Thanks to Nick Tuckwell for allowing me to interview you and teaching me a few things about what your business has to offer.

Until next time, happy shopping…
