Trailer Food - Can't Beat This Sydney Tradition

This was one of our Food Tour stops and it was really fun. I expect this is the first true Trailer Food restaurant. We were served the Meat Pie with MASHED potatoes, peas and gravy. I'm glad we shared one -they are very large and filling. Fun spot and everyone should have one of Harry's... read more

Maybe they were just to hyped up to us but the pies were good don't get me wrong but people had us thinking they would be worlds better than other places whereas it was daily similar to most competitors.

The hot dog de wheels was amazing! My husband ordered it but after trying it I had to steal it. It was plenty for two. My meat pie was just ok but I would go back for a dog anytime! Parking in the area was tough but we got lucky and something opened up. This was the best and cheapest... More

Not for everyone, but every now and then you need a quick satisfying meal while sitting on the footpath or Sea Wall listening to water lapping against the Sandstone contemplating your excuses for getting home at 3 am in the morning.

I love pie. Harry's pies are great. Meaty and yummy. I love the potato and peas and gravy. Even the hot dogs and sausage rolls are yummy too. You get more value for money than the swishy expensive restaurants nearby. And you can sit and enjoy Woolloomooloo wharf and the navy ships.

this is a must visit place! This is a roadside eatery that serve tasty food. The chillie dog is a must. A hearty snack with great chillie dressing. It's a treat for the taste buds. Combine with a walk through the botanical gardens

This was our first taste of lunch Australian style, something that we don't get at home. We came across this chain the day before when we were in Bondi Beach. Of course we had to go there again for an encore! I had the Chicken Curry Pie, my husband had the Sausage Roll.

The best thing about the coffee was that it was in fact coffee. One bad about it was the person who made it, who was more interested in chatting up another customer than dealing with me. The worst part was just how bad the coffee was. McDonald's or Starbucks is to this coffee as the finest artisanal italian espresso in... More

This was a tiny take out place. We went for lunch one day. This is not my kind of eatery or food. I tried a meat pie and didn't care for it.
