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.

    Thank you, the Hoosegow team! My partner and I had a wonderful meal, and the Mollydooker was excellent! (It was served perfectly, as it should be ;) ). I've been wanting to get said partner out to your restaurant for a while, and I'm glad we had the chance to dine with you before the harsh restrictions on non essential businesses went ahead. Fingers, toes, and any other malleable body parts are crossed for a speedy recovery, industry-wide. We'll see you again after the storm has been weathered. Keep your spirits up and your limoncellos high! All the best, take care. :) x

    We went for the chilli chicken and it was really good. We left full and it was tasty. The dining room atmosphere was great - the staff service was friendly.

    Food was good....signature dish chilli chicken was very good. But my husband ordered a wagyu rump steak which was $58 and while it tasted really smokey with the charcoal grill it was full of gristle and a bit chewy! Wishes he had of chosen something else. Initial greeting was good, but staff kept on approaching table to ask how the food was. Just let people enjoy their meal for Gods sake. We had 5 different staff approach table while eating!!

    Friendly staff, and plenty of them. Welcoming. Food very good, would like to return to try more menu items. Very happy with our evening. Sat night was a touch noisy, but you might simply call it "convivial". This is not a cheap-eats restaurant, see prices on their online menu. Bottom line: we'll return.

    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

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!
