    The chicken I received was raw & the waiter said it wasn’t - there was blood coming out. A child’s meal got missed had to ask twice where it was. A waiter spilt a drink on 2 people at the table but was nice enough to take the spilled drink off our bill.

    What a great place!! The atmosphere here is very cool, great service and so quick for the meals to come out. Great options on the menu particularly with the bbq meats and pretty reasonable prices too. Having options you can share on a platter is such a good idea. We had the brisket, Southern fried chicken and smoked links (sausage) which were all really tasty and well cooked along with a nice creamy mac & cheese, collated greens and the corn which was so juicy and had a great flavour. Definitely recommend to check it out. Presume it was the owner we spoke to when we arrived and left and he was fantastic, so personable, you can tell he loves his bbq and his business but all the staff were so genuinely friendly. Great look, great food, great service👍🏻

    Great food , and service was fantastic, the owner chatted to us , and regularly asked how everything was, We ordered a variety of food, from pulled pork, to onion rings, smoked and grilled watermelon salad and a double beef cheese Burger, which was moist and very tasty, just a little to much mustard for me. But otherwise great place,and looking forward to going back. 👍🏽

    Made a reservation. Turned up on time. The restaurant was fairly quiet. Shown to a table straight away. Orders taken for drinks then. 35 minutes later still no drinks, no order taken for food so we left.

    Nice clean venue, friendly staff, had to wait for 30 minutes for a waiter to come and take our drink order as we were told to sit and they would be there for our order soon. One of our meals did not turn up, we had to go and ask for it. Food was average. Maybe just an off night for them.

    Amazing food, they did get one of our food choices wrong but they went above and beyond by giving us what we asked for, not charging us for it and giving us a free drink, they were amazing

    We love this place but the last visit was extremely disappointing. Our booked table was given away to walk ins. The pork belly bites were served as 1 large chunk and nothing to cut it with. A quite small portion of mashed potato was $9. The service was terrible, food & drinks constantly being delivered to the wrong tables. Long wait time to get served at the bar, despite the bar tender only polishing glasses. The table next to us had to ask where their drinks were, got charged twice then waited an hour for food. I tell everyone to come here but may need to rethink that.

    We weren't prepared for some of our meals to come out on a share platter. Now we know, we will order differently next time. The food was very nice. The beef brisket melted in your mouth. Will definitely be back.

    Ryan along with his staff are what Toowoomba needs! The perfect BBQ place that serves up some serious good eats here! The smoked chicken was my absolute favourite along with the Mac n Cheese! Highly recommend trying a bit of everything as I could not fault anything! Made my wife’s birthday extra special! Will be coming back for more delicious BBQ and for the friendly service!

    Love this place. I return here all the time and recommend it to friends and family. Food is beautiful service is outstanding. Upbeat atmosphere with a feel good vibe. Staff very attentive. Owner/manager pleasant and although was very busy night he took the time to acknowledge his guests. Only have one moan and that Is trying to find a park in cbd.

    The venue is very relaxing, nice and modern, the bar is next level beers on tap and a spirt selection like you would not believe. The food was probably the best tasting meats, with beautiful gravy sides were great too. Totally recommend this place and I have told most of my work mates who are planning on a visit next week. Thanks awesome guys
