Have eaten here a number of times and each time it was undesirable. The food is dull, and I make better at home with no effort. Don't eat here.

We had lunch here while shopping the mall in Alice. Good mix of food and average prices for Australia. The staff was a bit slow and our food was late getting out, but when I paid for the meal the cashier mentioned he was sorry for the delay, so that helped a bit. Nothing stood out to me, but if you ate there at night it might be more festive than the lunch crowd.

Had lunch at Sporties and enjoyed the large portions and friendly staff. A lot of racing photos on the walls. Nice place locals eat.

All in all a disaster. The food was over cooked, dry, tasteless and just plain bad. Felt like I was at a school cafeteria. Service was lacking. Just a really bad experience.

Popped in for a quick lunch with friends and we were to disappointed. Sportiest is in Todd mall so right in the middle of the main part of Alice Springs so great for people watching'. Portions of food are very generous so order less than you think! Fast service and full of locals. Furniture and cafe clean but basic and a bit dated. Menu selection had all the usually for a casual cafe , most of which involved chips and salad. All up was very good value and a pleasant visit & we enjoyed it. Will visit again when next in the Alice.
