Following in second position from 32 nominees was Gympie’s favourite burger winner in October, Johnny Dee’s with 9 per cent.

Sitting in third position was Southside Take Away on 8 per cent.

A notable mention in the poll should be Alchemy, which gained 6 per cent of the vote but has only been operating since February.

Popular Gympie burger joint Johnny Dees won the online poll for best burgers in October but are the runners-up in the best takeaway poll, but only by one percentage point.

Bruce Pearce, owner of Fisherman’s Haul was “absolutely stoked” with the win.

“We’ve been working really hard to keep up with the demand during this current situation.

“And we get all our produce locally so I guess that’s got something to do with it,” he said.

Mr Pearce said on a good day they would use more than 60kg of potatoes from Gingers for “the world’s best potato scallops”.

“We make them all by hand by slicing up the big sebagos. Gingers can’t believe how many potatoes we go through,” he said.
