Not all heroes wear capes as one Brisbane man clad only in jocks has proven after helping police track down a runaway driver.

A car ploughed into a fish and chips shop at Hendra around 2am on Thursday and the driver ran from the scene.

A neighbour named Daniel gave chase down the street and was able to help police track down the alleged driver, a 35-year-old man, while only wearing "me jocks".

"All I had was me jocks on and I was chasing (the driver) up the street," he told the Nine Network.

The driver has been charged with one count of unlicensed driving and is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on January 31, while his pursuer has been labelled a hero.

"He (says to me) 'don't be a hero mate,' and I said 'I'm not trying to be a hero but the police are coming'," Daniel said.
