Meet the Chef

Head Chef Chris Pangrazio has come back home and to Hoosegow after a few years in tropical Queensland. His love of chilli, spicy foods and zingy freshness matched with beautiful local and Australian produce inspires him to create fusion food 'which is what Hoosegow is all about’ says Chef Chris! Hoosegow's menu bursts with flavour. A unique fusion of Latin American, Eastern and Asian dishes cooked on charcoal to a mostly gluten free menu. Chef Chris and his team are one of a kind. Harmonious, fun, passionate with 'nothing but the best will do' attitude. His mission is to bring culinary charcoal deliciousness to the Adelaide.

    Good food, excellent service . The only issue for me was it was a bit noisy but that would not stop me going back. (I’d probably avoid weekends because of noise levels).

    Amazing dinner experience from beginning to end! You walk in to a beautiful and warm atmosphere, which is followed up with sincerely warm and welcoming staff. The food that followed was amazingly flavourful, so well presented, and very generously portioned. Their signature chicken, oh my, delish! A great night out all round.

    Don’t know why it’s taken us so long to check this place out! Beaustifulnfood, relaxed setting and the best thing for me is that despite being busy it wasn’t loud at all, easy to have a conversation with your dinner party and be quite unaware of the other patrons. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely amazing service from the moment we walked in. The food was all fantastic and of very high quality. I don't usually eat steak, but opted for their Scotch fillet and it was one of the most perfectly cooked steaks I'd ever eaten

    Nice restaurant, good range on the menu and food was delicious. Only let down was service, as it was quite difficult to get staff attention to order drinks etc.

    Great service and beautiful restaurant. We got the meat platter to share it was generous servings but the meat was a bit average tasting. Desserts were delicious.

    We booked the restaurant for a meeting for 9 people and it was perfect. We had a rather secluded area and exceptional service catering to all of our needs. Everyone commented on the sensational food and generous portions. We will most definitely be returning both for social and professional events. Thank you so much!

    The food isn't the cheapest so if you're one to look at prices first, this might not be your thing BUT you definitely get what you pay for. The flavour and texture they get into each dish is fantastic and because of that you don't need to order a heap of food which means despite the prices, you end up having a great value meal. The food, service and atmosphere at this place is exceptional, I go here on every special occasion and am never disappointed.

About the restaurant

Prisoners of Food

If you go gooey over succulent chargrilled meats which have been loaded with spice and laden with finger licking sauce, then you can't go wrong with Hoosegow Charcoal. Hoosegow - which translates to ‘jail’ in english - has certainly captured our hearts and our tastebuds. Here they’re serving a blend of Latin American, Asian and Eastern flavours in damn fine fashion. For the ultimate dish try their signature chilli chicken which is deliciously smoky and spicy. What more can we say, its simple charcoal deliciousness!

Best Dish: Signature Chilli Chicken
