“Nice joint, good affordable food”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

I like the vibe, food and service, and on performance nights the venue is a melting point for the gay community and heterosexual people. Think Ru Paul, and you'll get the picture

“Fun and Flavoursome!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

The vibe is gay and Friendly. Always a treat to have one of the many burgers and watch a drag show or Bingo. Your food is served by good looking waiter who makes you feel welcome. If you want an evening out on the town, this is the place to go!

“Anything but a drag!”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

A super fun and vibey place to go! The burgers were quite delicious, but the drinks menu was better. The pink tea - I think I had about 5! - was addictive! Definitely a place to visit for the entertainment value.
We went on the evening of the drag queen show and what a show! Not to mention the waiters, which aren't at all hard on the eyes.
A great place to visit for a friends hang out. Service a little on the slow side, but super friendly.

“Fun and vibey”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I've been here twice and really loved it, the atmosphere is electric and everyone is there to have a good time, the drag show was amazing as the guy sang exactly like Adele. To make it even better is that the food is GOOD, as in the burgers. I had a lamb burger with some mint cream and it was delicious! Will definitely be returning

“Such an enjoyable evening”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Heard a lot about beefcakes so decided to go with some friends one evening. What a great experience! The drag show featured Princess Pop who was incredible! What an amazing singer and performer. Cocktails were delicious and the waiters were great, so friendly and not too bad to look at either. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Sadly didn't eat but I plan to come back and sample the food as the burgers look fantastic. Will be bringing more friends!
