ʻThe Burp Dispensary and The Residenceʼ”
“In January 1936, this site was purchased from a Mrs. Barron by Anargiros Aroney, with the intention of constructing a ground floor retail space and a first floor residence for himself and his new bride.
The property was an addition to Mr. Aroneyʼs real estate portfolio that already included the Niagara Milk Bar and McGarryʼs Hotel in Victoria Street. Mackay
The original building was designed by Architect Edwin R. Orchard of Cairns and constructed by the Queensland Building and Engineering Company of Nelson Street Mackay at a cost of £2,279 and additional Architect fees of £132.
Due to policy changes Mackay Council disallowed the use of the First Floor as a residential premise, and consequently both ground and first floor were tenanted – the ground floor by Queensland Batteries and upstairs by a Dentist, a milliner, and a dress maker. A garage at the rear of the building was occupied by real estate agent Mr. Cavello.
Over the years changing tenants have included:- Williamson Tailors, Evan Carne – Dentist, Mira Petrovic – Dental Mechanic, a Lingerie maker, Alec Dawson – Accountant, John Mirls & J V Kane – Surveyors, Peter Keogh – Dental Mechanic, George Novikov – Civil Engineer, Alan Murphy – Jeweller, Andru Dimitrios – Computer Systems Support, Clements Recruitment, Optus Networks and Maudie and Me – Toys Clothing and Homeware.
The name The Burp Dispensary was inspired by previous owner and longest continuous occupier of the building, pharmacist Peter Dimitrios and his wife Mary Dimitrios, daughter of Anargiros and Evangelia Aroney.
A new chapter begins with the purchase of the building in September 2012 by Damien and Adrian Connors, and the renovation to its present condition by NE Food Cafe Pty. Ltd. for “The Burp Dispensary”


The Tapas menu comes directly from the kitchen and has the first class magic you would expect adapted to bite size portions. Designed as appetizing shared-plates packed with flavour TAPAS is perfect for both small and large groups whatever the occasion! 
New to THE DISPENSARY we have added a grill option, this is just incase you aren’t good with sharing and would rather sit down to a more traditional meal!

  • Went to The Dispensary with friends for the roast and red night , the meal gives a whole new meaning to the word roast at $20 per person it was great value. I had the beef cheek roast and a glass of nice red which was only an extra $5. Great meal great tastes great value even better service and atmosphere. Definitely will be back again next Tuesday roast and red !!! Great job.
