    The place was full of smoke from the grill within minutes of us walking in! You could see the smoke hovering round the place from the down lights! After we left you could smell the smoke all over our clothes and hair! The burger patties were so thin, barely any meat! I lifted it up to add some sauce and it fell apart! Fries were average! After hearing good things we were really underwhelmed!

    Fabulous succulent wings and ribs. Friendly staff made this a great night all round. Tables could maybe have a bit more room as they were a bit squeezy for full bellies to fit in all the food!

    Roddys is a rarity amonst Brisbane restaurants. They are better now then when they first opened, and they were pretty great then. The service, food and value are unbeatable. Every time we walk out we look forward to when we can go back. Thanks Roddys

    Love the food!! Service usually takes a little while to get drinks (about 20-30minutes) which seems a little odd. I think it would be better if they poured it and then handed it to us at the front desk there since we already are ordering and paying there.

    The restaurant, staff and food were absolutely fabulous. Only criticism is that the booths are too close together. Felt as though we were in a straight jacket will little room to move.

    The beef ribs were amazing! Massive portions, really tasty. Small place to eat in depending where you sitting so can be cozy but good service, little while for food to come out but worth the wait.

    Food was ok but not wow. Baby back ribs the best and decent servings but didn't make me want to go back. Was surprised it felt more like a takeaway place and I was expecting a restaurant but I guess that's the theme they are going for

    My husband is bit fussy on his slow cooked meat and ribs, he said this was the best meat that we have tried dining out, so BIG compliments here! Very tasty meal, everything was delicious,

    The food was 10/10 Best ribs in the city. Cramped seating, Bit shabby inside. Order at the counter. Not a premium dining experience. if you base value for money purely on the food, Definitely!! I’d takeaway here for sure

    The food, service and atmosphere was great, but the biggest disappointment was booking a table through 'the fork'. Having to enter your credit card number to book a table and being held to ransom to the tune of $300 if you cancel within 24 hours of the booking is absolute robbery. Theres no way of contacting the restaurant directly since they don't answer the phones and says so in their recorded message if an attempt is made. No shows from a restaurant's perspective is frustrating, but tactics such as these are driving customers away. Do you want a booking filled by a sick person obliged to turn up at risk of losing $300 if they don't??

    Upoj our arrival till the exiting the restaurant. Staff members were excellent. Warm welcome, superb customer serivce skills and amiable exit. The food (Royal Sampler with max sauce and corn cob) was really beyond my expectation. Good work kitchen team???? Thank you Big Roody's team members for a great night~~????
