We dined at 6.30pm with a few friends and this is our first time since it was SSS BBQ. In the menu it said meals came with baked potato and sour cream, wedges or chips. I ordered my meal with baked potato and sour cream and was told they don't serve them until about 7.00pm (Disappointing). Meals were basic and everyone enjoyed their meals. Some of our group had the wedges and said they were dry and tasted terrible. Service was quick.

We came to SSS BBQ actually only to find it has been changed to The Lions Pride restaurant. The staff said it is the same restaurant and same menu, so we decided to have dinner there. The menu is different. It offers cheaper meals. The steak was cooked too long and the gravy is salty and watery. The ribs were just average. It is very disappointing after waiting more than 40 minutes for the meal while it is not that busy. The service is great however, but we came to the restaurant to have a great meal, not a great service.

We went to Lion's Pride expecting as good as former SSS BBQ and were very disappointed. Lousy beer choices, no free peanuts and the beef ribs (sadly no pork ribs on offer) were a big pile of small pieces which were no more than a plate of fatty bones with hardly any meat...very difficult to eat, it was a meal more suited for the dog! Service was friendly and efficient though.

Just had dinner with wife and daughter and while the chicken wings were very good, the ribs were terrible and the pasta almost as bad. Don't expect a rack of ribs when you order 'rack of ribs' - you get 6 or 7 very fatty knuckles of beef rib that were only tasty from the sauce and after 3 I had to stop. Salad and wedges were both good but I came for the ribs and they were very very bad.

Never again. Should have tried the Hogsbreath instead. Tomorrow it's the RSL as there's not a lot of choice in Dubbo. Orange leaves you guys for dead.

Service was extremely slow and very confused. The girls tried hard but it was chaotic. I can't remember the last time I didn't leave a tip at a restaurant but I had to leave a zero tip tonight.

Food was very good. It used to be the SSS but is now Lion's Pride. Try the $42 three course meal challenge!
