“superb pizza and pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This was our 4th visit, and once again found it to be excellent, from the warm welcome, to the excellent service from the waitresses, the food superb and plentiful, compliments to Mike the chef. From Tony and Elaine.

“Don't waste your time or money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We went to Gasoline Alley even after hearing terrible reviews from friends and family. Its boasts to have the best steaks in town and after we received a recent leaflet through the door we gave it a try.

First off the atmosphere was terrible, it was dull and bare and the tables were sticky. I ordered a steak my partner ordered the 'alabama slammer' (a burger) - it took over 45 minutes to get our food. Given that it took so long I at least expected a platefull of food...this was not the case, I got an average looking steak with a handfull of 'homemade' chips. My parter got an undercooked burger on a dry burnt bun. The steak tastes ok but it was nothing special, I expected a huge lump of meat, this was not the case! We complained and got 10% off. I won't ever go back. I wish I'd listened to my friends and family and went somewhere else.

“Could be so much better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Really didn't enjoy this at all. Wouldn't rush back. Menu is pretty limited, and try have an extensive pizza/pasta menu... Which feels leftover from previous Italian restaurant. Didn't feel like a steakhouse at all.
The food, the guys in our group left still hungry as their portion sizes were pretty poor.
I had their special, a burger. Which portion size was fine but the burger was so bland and tasteless & dry. Disappointing!
The deserts were ridiculous - a packet waffle cut in Half and advertised as waffles, plural. And cost more than double what a pack of 4 do in the supermarket.
Poor value for money.
Service was pretty shocking too - the waitress clearly thought she was something. Which really gets my goat!!
To be honest if you are after an authentic American style meal, u can't go wrong with Missisippi Grill in town, way better value for money, and pleasant service. Wouldn't rush back to Gasoline Alley unless they drastically revamp.
