Barbecue
Bluestone American BBQ features a Latin American spin on authentic low and slow traditions from the US BBQ belt. Chef Alvaro Malel draws inspiration from his Uruguayan heritage, and his passion for cuisines from both American continents to reimagine smoked classics like Yearling Beef Short Rib with chimichurri, and Pit-Braised Pulled Lamb with salsa criolla and arepas.

His talent for bringing together the best of North and South American food traditions has been a drawcard for diners across Melbourne since the restaurant opened seven years ago. He credits the success of Bluestone to his Uruguayan culture and heritage, which is all about “food, family and fire…BBQ is a feature of all my best memories. There’s no better way to celebrate milestones, or to just kick back and have fun with the people you love. Bluestone has always been about creating that experience for other people.”

    A bit expensive but well worth the value. Highly highly recommend, especially if you’re going for your husbands birthday dinner. The number 3 pack has everything we both wanted and we took enough home for another full meal.

    Bluestone know how to barbecue. They’ve been in Coburg for a few years now, & become something of a fixture. That’s because they’re great at what they do. If you want excellent fare, you’re going to love this place. That’s why we keep coming back.

    Amazing good quality food. Came out quick, fresh and hot. Staff were very attentive and responsive. 10/10, would go back. Yes a bit pricey but worth the quality meal.

    Great place to get together with my sons. Head there for the Tuesday platter - great value, & certainly enough food to fill us up. Great selection of drinks to accompany the meal, too. Get down here. You’ll love it. Maybe not so much, if you’re vegan.

    Terrible food. It was so disappointing. It was flavourless, seemed reheated and I truly don't think the chefs are even familiar with an American BBQ. The staff are very friendly but I would never come here again. I'm suprised no one woke up sick today.

    Food was great, but a little disappointed by fact that we arrived 10 minutes early and all of the food was placed on our table shortly after, there were no courses, just all at once. So even though it was a 2 hour booking, we had finished within 60 minutes, felt very rushed which was a shame as it was a mothers day lunch that my wife was looking forward to.
