Here often

I go here often with friends, the food is what you expect, doesn't blow you away, still nice, service is good, a strong point for them. Menu is over priced I believe, you can end up paying $40-50 on a steak, which is a very average steak may I add.

Have been quite a number of times. They do a good steak, though very over-priced. Love their curly fries of course, seasoned well and perfect crunch. It's usually quite a long wait tho. Staff are pretty friendly

I am now convinced that there are no better steaks in the world than Hog's Breath Cafes - now a frequent visitor we have also attended a few of their cafes ranging from Surfers Paradise to Tamworth to Wagga Wagga to Wantirna (Melbourne)...no complaints whatsoever.Looking foirward to our next visit.

I have come here on numerous occasions since 2009 and can say that this particular Hog's Breath has never failed me through their service or food. The service is always fun, quirky and helpful and the food is always great (especially the ribs). It is not by any means fancy, but it is delicious and has a great atmosphere.

My first experience and my most recent experience at my local Hogs Breath (a few years apart) were practically identical. Amazing. Every time I've gone, we've been served by a smiling friendly staff member, and eaten delicious food. Obviously they specialise in their 18 hour slow cooked steak, and for good reason. It has a perfect fat content, and is... More

Not bad, the kids always pick the best meals I think and they are very affordable. I had the Caesar chicken wrap with chips and salad. It wasn’t bad. I must say the chips definitely fill you up. Overall I believe this place is a good option based on affordability.

Hogs Breath is one of our favourites. We loved the good and there are lots of things to see around the restaurant. The only negative is the wait time for the meals, especially with hungry children.
