San Antone by Bludso's BBQ - Crown Melbourne
Nice atmosphere, helpful staff, tasty food
If you like BBQ then this place covers all the bases not cheap but portions are large
Wonderful staff, food service is good timing and the corn bread the best I ever had. Really captured the essence of Smokey slow cooking. Will be back
The meat on the ribs was a bit dry and it was NOT fall off the bone tender. The pulled pork was good but I've tasted as good in an HSP. Authentic slow smoked pulled pork should taste way better than reheated frozen pulled pork I can but at Woolies. All the sides we tried, beans, potato salad, corn bread, mac & cheese were all good. The chicken was good too. The Brisket and the cheesecake where phenomenal.
We were initially taken by the mouth watering aroma. We ordered the 3 meats platter each where we chose 3 meats and 2 salads. The brisket was dry as were the pork ribs. Salads were covered in too much dressing. Service was friendly and fast. Cocktails too expensive we thought as were prices of food overall for what we received.
We went for an anniversary celebration and were disappointed. It was slow to get water, we received our food before drinks. The food was way spicier than advertised. It was also very very expensive for what it was. The ribs were hard and chewy almost like plastic, the sausage was chewy and way too spicy, the beans looked and tasted horrible and hard. The mac and cheese was powdery and not even cooked properly. Drinks, chicken and brisket were awesome, but half of the other food was inedible.
Food was fantastic and cooked superbly
Waitress could have been more attentive.
The atmosphere there was great and the food was amazing!!
The servers were exceptional and very friendly
Would definitely recommend San Antone to everyone!!!
Great value for money.
We thought the food was amazing. The beef bisket and pulled pork were to die for. The staff were friendly, seemed a little rushed being so busy but that’s a good sign! Definitely recommended and we will be back!
So when you advertise you specialise in Ribs and Brisket, but when you arrive for 7pm dinner and you are told that they’ve completely sold out of Ribs? WTF??
It got worse. 30 minutes after arrived still no drinks arrived. They were ordered quickly but not a single waitress / waiter came back. Others around us got there entrees and drinks before us and arrived after us. Perhaps sitting in a booth doesn’t mean you’re a valued customer?
Very pleasant dining experience. My family enjoyed the meal.
Great BBQ, fast friendly service. The beef brisket and the spicy beef sausage were muat haves. The mac and cheese was a hit with the kids.
The food was disappointing. The pork ribs were so dry, almost not edible.
Unfortunately the service was really disappointing from our waitress. She did not smile once and offered a perfunctuary 'how are you'. Did not offer dessert or another drink.
The other staff we had to deal with were lovely and really highlighted our waitress' surly manner.
Shame as we had booked especially for Christmas Day.
Very unlikely to go back for a special occasion.
Would have loved some table decorations too like crackers given it was Christmas Day!
We had a table of 12 for a Xmas break up. There were mixed feelings about the meals. Half the table complained about the ribs and chicken being dry but everyone enjoyed the brisket. The salads were also hit and miss. The waiters forgot about our drinks on 2 occasions. Overall it was disappointing. We won't be back.
Decided to eat at San Antone to try something a bit different. Booked online, received text message the day before asking to confirm. Did as requested but on the day there was no record of any booking. Luckily there were still tables available given it was 7 pm and so close to Christmas. Food took a little while to arrive but was generally good and well presented. Margarita was horrible. No real Texas bbq place would serve something like that. Interesting place to try once. Also very noisy.
Awesome food at an absolutely great price!
Amazing meat and sides. Had a great time at a reasonable price and left full and happy.
Beef and sausage were excellent
Ribs were dry and did not fall off the bone
Chicken is forgettable
Potato with sour cream was great
Great family spot for lunch. Kid friendly with great meat options. Some a little dry but overall tasty meal. Party platter for 8 adults and 4 kids was plenty of food! We’ll be back.
The good was delicious. An enjoyable dinner.
Excellent food and great atmosphere
Meat meat everyone
The Pulled Pork, Brisket and Macaroni Cheese were the best. The House fries for size and price I believed were pricey. Chips are usually a throw in these days with a lot of meals.
The brisket was awesome the best food on the $89.00 platter, the sausage was to rubbery.the chicken was ok.the ribs were way to tough lucky i had my own teeth.the 3 sides do not include the chips overall the food was below average for the cost which was high. I dont mind cost if food is good but my wife and I were dissapointed.
The toughest ribs I have ever eaten in my life, though they were meaty and well seasoned. It’s a big disappointment. Brisket was much more tender and flavourful. Staff was polite and welcoming. Just a big shame that they don’t know how to cook the ribs properly.
Yummy food at a reasonable price, quick service and amazing happy hour margharitas!
Loved it! Easy to find, food was great. Our interstate visitors will definitely return - and so will my family.
Delicious and great value. The all the sides & all the meats platter was wonderful value and all tasty. Will happily come back again!
The food was delicious, I loved the simple but delicious menu options, basically pick the meat you like and pick your sides! The smell as soon as you walk up to the restaurant of the BBQ flavours was just amazing. The restaurant was spacious, not too busy (but it was early on a Monday night when we went) and we were served quickly, but not rushed to leave at the end which was lovely
I have been here many times before, but this time was a massive let down. The meat came out cold which was off-putting. The server did not know the size of the meat servings in the shared meat platter and she even said it comes with 1/4 chicken when it said 1/2 chicken. I asked this question as I wanted to see if it was value for money or just go with the 3 meat/2 sides platter. And not sure about the prices anymore, for 2 people and 1 drink it was $99.00
Great food and ambience. Meals are big and great for sharing!
Delicious brisket that fell apart to touch, excellent Mac & cheese and good green beans
Great service. We were there at 3pm so it wasn't a peak time, but there was still a good ambiance to the restaurant. The quality of food was great with lots of variety.
The place is awesome. Food is amazing. All the meats and sides are cooked to perfection. Have been there a couple of times and definitely going back
Great atmosphere, friendly staff and great value for money! Food was yummy! Would recommend the Mac n cheese and nachos!
Great food, good prices. Lovely dinner.
There was not much flavour in the food and it was cold. Worse still the meat was really dry - the worst BBQ that we can remember. Like the meat had been taken out of the oven, carved, then put under mild heat until needed.
The potato salad was all sauce and just thick and gluggy.
Not a lot of food either and hardly any BBQ sauce.
Staff were ok except for when we asked for more sauce and it never came.
Staff at the front counter were good with our feedback and did provide a discount.
I first saw this restaurant on the morning TV show, 'TODAY' for the 4th of July.... and had been waiting all this time to visit it for myself.
It was my son's 17th birthday
The pork ribs and sandwiches were out of this world.
Delicious!!! The fries and macaroni and cheese were awesome too.
My kids also loved the homemade iced tea drinks. It made me feel like I had been transported to America. I loved the music that was playing too
Can't wait to come back again soon
