Motorhome Majestic brings the burger love to Ascotvale

There are few things more satisfying than biting into a well-made burger – but how about a well-made burger with beef, fried chicken, bacon and special sauce?

Ascotvale’s Motorhome Majestic offers this to its patrons and more, including some pretty smashing kinder surprise alcoholic milkshakes, ribs, chicken wings and then some.

MM has its roots in the city’s Grand Trailer Park Taverna, so you know it’s gotta be good. And with the décor made up of converted motorhomes which have been transformed into cute little booths, what’s not to love?
