When here for Christmas lunch today and honestly this was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had in my life. Main course was over an hour late with no apologies or explanation, and when it finally arrived it was cold. Various weird accompaniments that were inedible such as red onions with spices and whole dried apricots. When the dessert... More

I was just waiting for your review. We served 35 happy people for Xmas dinner, and you. The food was inedible? Your partner ate it!! We are a small alternative restaurant / bar that offered a hell of a lot for a low price on Xmas Day. The production of that meal was incredibly hard work, and rewarding with the... More

Food was okay at best, alley stank of feces and it was wafting into the restaurant. The place is dank and dirty with an owner that treats his local staff like utter dirt. Would never step foot near that dark cesspool again.

Happy Xmas to you too! I don't think I have ever been so insulted by a Tripadvisor review. I don't know what situation you misread regarding our staff, but I can assure you we respect them and the work they do very much. The alley outside is not our property, but we do our best to keep it clean. We... More

My meal was lovely, soft tacos with pulled pork. My husband had the 1/4 pounder burger with chips a chilli cheese then spent the next 24 hours in bed between visits to the bathroom. He normally has a caste iron stomach as he was born in the tropics, but this meal floored him. We had eaten fruit for breakfast and... More

Stopped here for lunch as fancied a burger. The burger I chose was very tasty and of good quality and the decent chips went well with it. Good Mexican menu with other things than burgers on it

Had a cheeseburger deluxe I think it was called(?) for $6.25us which aint exactly cheap. Beers were good value though. Burger pattie I enjoyed but the stale, McDonalds style glazed bun wrecked this unfortunately. Possibly toasted may have fixed this. I ate mine without the bun. The girls on staff were very nice, not good English but the basics are... More

Glad you enjoyed the meal. We think the burgers are good value as they use imported Australian beef. Sorry you didn't enjoy the bun, I prefer them toasted myself, but my business partner disagrees preferring them to be buttered and grilled on the hot plate. Feel free to request a toasted bun. More

Come for the food, not the atmosphere. As one reviewer notes "...basically in a garage with some booths added and graffiti on the walls." Actually, the walls are decorated with old rock concert posters that match the absolutely casual atmosphere just fine. My wife and I ordered quesadillas, soft tacos and a few Coronas. We both agree that the chef... More

Not nice place, basically in a garage with some booths added and graffiti on the walls. Ordered chilli burger and added chilli cheese to my fries. BAD CHOICE! The chilli was obviously from a can, I couldn't eat my fries. Tried to eat my partners fries but they had a hair in them. After my main was finished my onion... More

My bf and I have been here a couple times in the past month for dinner and haven't been disappointed. Its a great local bar with friendly staff and food/drink specials every night. And,most importantly, don't pet the owner's dog, he doesn't like you.

Found out about the restaurant from TripAdvisor, had a browse of their menu online and had to try! Had the Navajo Fried Bread for a starter and the Chorizo Quesadillas as my main which was delicious! Whilst I was there, a few guys were doing live music, loved it Will be back!

I could eat at this place everyday. I was lucky to be staying at the Okay Boutique which is a couple of doors down from this brilliant little bar/restaurant. By far the best ribs I have ever eaten (tall call I know) served with mashed potato and gravy and green beans. They only serve the ribs on a Tuesday and... More
