Disappointed with the food - ribs while very tasty were very dry & the jalopena poppers were not in fact these!! They were a take on spring rolls. Jalopena poppers are filled jalopenas!!! Not a jalopena in sight ☹️ ..... misleading & wouldn’t have ordered if we’d known. Ok to have a quick but noisy meal here - pretty much on value for money

Burgers were average, could get them anywhere, salad was was from the 70s with store bought dressing and chips ok. Ribs were the highlight but not enough to go back.

Our first visit here and it was brilliant. We went on Friday night as we heard it was kids eat free and we were not disappointed. Had a sharing board together and we couldn't eat it all so the staff offered a takeaway box which wad brilliant after paying a fair bit for just 2 adults. The meat was amazing. Mac cheese was a huge hit for the toddler too

Absolutely recommend BPLP! American BBQ is always a winner. Food is good, really well made, delicious and a good selection. Only issue I'd have would be with portion size which tends to be a little small and therefore slightly overpriced. Can't fault anything else though - I'll go back!

Was a good experience however a few things would have made it better!!

The place didn’t take Amex.
We ordered the buffalo wings and on the board showed 8 and there were 4 people and we only got 6.
It was a rather hot day on Friday and we found it hard after a couple of hours with no Air conditioning.
We wanted a coffee and you guys didn’t make coffees therefore we didn’t have desserts. Missed opportunity for extra income. I was told that you didn’t want to take business away from the coffee shop across the road !!!! It is called healthy competition. People wanting just a coffee will continue to go there however diners at your establishment can also enjoy a nice coffee after dining, it doesn’t make sense for my guests and I to go across for just a coffee after we spent $253.00 on lunch at yours.

I will definitely come back but these are just feedback for overall a nice place. Food was delicious credit to the chef.

Feel free to contact me if required.

Great place to chill & have a beer & some good food. Been here a few time but brisket was a little disappointing this time as it was dry. Southern fried chicken was delicious. Good atmosphere nice place to go to on a Friday night

There was a mix up with another party seating themselves at our booked table. Big Pig Staff could not have handled it better - we were asked to wait at the bar, offered a couple of free drinks while they sorted a table for us (it was a busy Saturday night so no spares) We were happy to sit at the bar tables to eat and the staff were super thankful and again offered us a free drink, and checked in throughout the night to make sure we were happy - and we were! The food was delicious, fresh and generous servings. Atmosphere was also great. My only suggestion is to have a 'please wait here to be seated' sign or direction as you enter, as we were a little confused as to where to go - but all in all a great atmosphere and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. We will definitely be back.
