Top 5 American Eateries in Brisbane Right Now!

Now I don’t know if I fell asleep on the train… but it seems I have opened my eyes and a whole bunch of American-inspired eateries have sprung up in Brisbane!

Here are my top 5 from ‘would eat there everyday’, ‘would eat there when i’m broke’ and ‘next on the list to try’.

1. Southside Diner – South Bank

Holy guacamole! Southside Diner is outrageously good! I’ve tried the ribs, the pulled pork sliders, the hot dog and the mac n cheese… ok I’ve eaten there way too many times in the last month!!


2. Yard Bird Ale House – New Farm

If heat is your thang’ (it’s not mine!) then the death wings are a must try. Luckily for the not-so-adventurous of us they have another tonne of options of wing flavours! The chipotle BBQ are my personal fave!

3. Mighty Mighty Cue & Brew – Fortitude Valley

I dropped in here last night and they were booked out! I think it has something to do with their slow cooked lamb ribs marinated in COLA!! Holy yum… I am desperate to get some of their ribs in my belly!

4. Papa Jack’s – Fortitude Valley

For more of a bar-inspired evening Papa Jack’s is awesome. Papa Jack’s takes you on a journey into the heartland of the Creole South, rich with traditions, stories and of course inspirational music, delectable drinks and dazzling cuisine. My suggestion, leave it up to the bartender, the bar allows you to pick a dollar value for a one-of-a-kind cocktail experience!

5. Carolina Kitchen – Coorparoo

Carolina Kitchen is my local! It’s cheap and cheerful and kinda like walking into your friends place and picking up a slice of delicious pecan pie!

38  Macaulay st, Coorparoo, Brisbane
