San Antone by Bludso's BBQ - Crown Melbourne
Don’t no who the cook was, but I tell you what I’m still licking my lips a day later. Well done 10 stars
It's a vibrant place with a good ambiance and good selection of meats. Great for a birthday celebration or catch up with friends
Loved it, awesome food, great atmosphere, will definitely be back.
The brisket was dry, and they didn’t give us sauce options. When we asked for a different sauce they didn’t tell us we’d be charged for it.
The sides were delicious but the meat itself was underwhelming
Food was very dry, have eaten there multiple times and disappointed on the food for a large group of people. Many people complained that the food was not at usual standard.
Service was quick and good. Will effeminately come back again.
The food and atmosphere was awesome, however the service tended to lack a little. We always needed to flag someone to get a drink (and we were not drinking fast ;))
Loved San Antone!
Customer service was great, really appreciated being put in a private booth after I requested it.
Food was delicious, great value for money and a lot of care has gone into the menu and making sure everything works well together.
The vinegary potato salad cut the rich meat so well and the corn bread was great
Love all the drinks we got, super different to all the cocktail bars at crown. Especially loved the Boozy Apple and Black currant sweet tea and the blackberry moonshine
One of the better Briskets I've had from a US style BBQ house, will happy eat here again.
Interesting food good atmosphere nice service worth a try
Quick meal, didn't have tit long. Meal was ok, have had better from an American BBQ place.
Beef brisket was the best I ever ate, along with mac n cheese. $75 platter was sufficient for 2 people.
The food and service were great ! The vibe was just what we had hoped for ! Prices were slightly above average but ultimately it was a great meal !
Concept of smoking meats is a could one, unfortunately the meal and presentation on the night was not something I could rate highly. The Brisket was nice and juicy with a lot of flavour. The Pulled pork was dry, chicken was rubbery. Kids meals were average, however the kids didn't complain
Both food and service were amazing. only problem i had was i ate too much! but I'm sure i wont learn from this next time I'm there
Been hanging out for a good slow cooked meal. This did not dissapoint.
We had shared platters including Brisket, pulled pork and chicken. All succulent and topped with some awesome sides like their coleslaw, corn bread and Mac and cheese.
Sauces were really tasty and some good kick.
Service was quick and we took our time to enjoy.
Will be returning soon.
Great place for a BBQ experience . We got a Smokey Platter and there was way too much food. It should feed 4 people.
Great food and quick delivery of food once ordered....but sat for 15 minutes at the start with no one even offering us water or to take a drinks order - despite numerous servers walking past us during that time and many attempts to make eye contact! Unfortunately had to end up shouting someone across which was uncomfortable or else we likely would not have been served.
Setting that aside, will definitely return as the food makes up for it.
The brisket and pulled pork was beautiful, it just melted in your mouth!! The hot sauce complimented the meat perfectly.
This was the most disappointing Crown restaurant we've ever been to.
The food: We got the smokehouse tray & it was entirely overcooked, dry & tasteless. The tray came with 2 half filled tiny bowls of dipping sauce that was meant to feed 2-3 but was barely enough for 1. The side of mac & cheese was the only decent dish. The service:
After we got our food the staff forgot about us & we had to constantly call them over.
Really poor overall & we wouldn't recommend to anyone & wont be going back.
San Antone by Bludso’s BBQ is a restaurant we keep coming back to again and again. We went here for Father’s Day dinner as it’s my dad’s favourite restaurant and they were just as friendly and accommodating as ever. We always recommend!
We had a great table, with wonderful wait staff who were very attentive and bubbly. The food came pretty fast, was delicious and abundant. Other american bbq places in Melbourne tend to give you very small protions for a high price - we had so much food we couldn't finish it!
Quite a disappointment. The side dishes were fine but the pork ribs were terrible. They came out barely lukewarm and so exceptionally dry they were inedible. The waitress saw only one rib in my half rack was touched and only 1.5 ribs of my husbands rack were touched and all she said was "do you want to take it away?" When I explained how they were she didn't care.
If you are after ribs, avoid this place. Overpriced as well. We will stick to Meat & Wine Co as they never disappoint.
This place is amazing we travel 2 hours for it and it’s so worth it.
Good food took a long time for a waiter to attend to us
Good food, big portion sizes and efficient service. Would go back again.
The atmosphere was great and electric! The smell as walked in was mouth watering! And when the good and cocktails come out we just enjoyed every mouthful! The meat just melted in our mouths! 10 out of 10 guy's! Will definitely be back and recommend to everyone! Cheers!
Some of the food was a little bit dry, but the ribs, chicken and brisket were great. The sides that went with the tray we ordered were tasty and plentiful and we 6 couldn’t finish it. Definitely a nice lunch spot.
Good just as good as it smelt. Served the 3 of us with a plate. Nice and quiet and clean. Recommend to friends. Will be coming back for sure.
Family of 4 all enjoyed the meal. Music super load - had to Talk loud to be heard. Drinks took forever - had finished entre before drinks arrived. Meal was awesome - will return
I wish I had a bigger stomach to try more of their menu.
Meat was fatty and very small portions. Not great value for money. Staff were fantastic!
Food amazing, came out super quick even though the restaurant was full. Beer was cold. Staff were friendly and cheerful. Highly recommend.
Amazing meal with many options of meat & sides. We were impressed with everything we ordered especially the beef brisket, fried chicken, corn bread, onion rings and coleslaw. We can’t fault our meals and will definitely return!
Food was good but the noise very loud and hard to hear yourself talking at the table. Lucky we had booked a table as at the time we ate there was a line out the door for walk-ins waiting to eat.
Not worth the money you pay for
Prompt service and very friendly staff
Food and Drinks was great.
Happily served our big group.
My only disappointment was when I asked the waitress on the Fried Chicken, she told me it was tenders and it actually wasn't.
I would have just ordered the brisket and saved my self a few extra dollars
Great atmosphere, but the food was a let down. Meat was dry, and sides were cold. I Think they just reheat in microwave?
The place was so packed, i think it caters to quantity but not quality which is a shame.
Service was good meals came out quick food was excellent
