    We came in and were greeted immediately and so happily - our waiter was determined to make sure we had all we needed and were looked after. We had used a Scoopon voucher and despite this - the service was still amazing!! The food was INCREDIBLE. I'm still dreaming of that chicken burger. And those beans!! Omg. Everything was amazing and we will definitely be back.

    Great addition to the Roddy's franchise. Have been to the one in Fish Lane many times so was keen to try out the Fortitude Valley one. Friendly staff and great food.

    Big Roddy’s is never disappointing. From the friendly smiles and acknowledgement when you walk in, to the absolutely delicious (and sizeable) menu, and ongoing amazing service, it’s just completely on point. The food is consistently good. The ribs are fall off the bone tender, burgers don’t leave you hungry, portion sizes are large, and possibly the best Sweet potato chips and authentic Canadian style poutine in Australia! Prices are reasonable for the portions and quality, and the venue has a great vibe. I love everything about this restaurant...and I’m fussy!

    The food was great and the service was excellent, but the exception was the readability of the menu. Not easy to read a white font on a pale orange backround under dim lights.

    On arrival I was ignored for quite some time. After ordering a drink, it took at least 10 minutes for the distracted staff to deliver it to my desk. When the food finally came, it was dropped on the floor only to be replaced immediately (why had it taken so long). The after all of that, it wasn't that tasty. Disapointing.

    The best ribs in Australia. We’re regulars and wouldn’t even think about trying any other rib establishment, when it’s this good, why would you go anywhere else.
