AMERICAN BBQ DONE RIGHT
Influenced by the low and slow cooking style made famous in America’s southern states, we have taken what we think are some of the best examples of BBQ in the world then put an Old faithful Australian twist on them.
We support local farmers, breeders, growers and suppliers for all of our meats and fresh ingredients.
All of our meats are carefully prepared and smoked in-house in our open kitchen, this gives you a complete interactive experience where you can see the BBQ process in action.
The Food: Low and Slow
Our food takes time.
Most of our meats begin their journey to you by resting in a brine solution for up to 12 hours. We then rub the meats with a variety of spices to compliment the different cuts.
Some of the ingredients that these dry rubs consist of are: black pepper, paprika, cumin, mustard & mustard seeds, onion, garlic, cayenne, chilli, coriander seed, oregano, cinnamon, clove, fennel, all spice, tumeric, myrtle, pimento, coffee, nutmeg, celery salt, sea salt, and sugar.
We have used a combination of traditional American BBQ flavors and Australian natives spices to compliment the smoked meats. The meats are then cooked in a Low n Slow hot smoking method, ranging from 18 to 26 hours, using a combination of beech, hickory, and coal.
We are also very proud of our sauces which are all made in-house on King street, these are also available for purchase! ask our staff about how you can take some Old Faithful home with you.
Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements so we may help you choose – not all ingredients are listed on the menu.
Despite our focus on meat, we have a large range of vegetable dishes to satisfy any vegetarian hunger.
Nothing goes together quite like beer and BBQ.
This is why choosing what beers to serve with our food was such a tough decision for us. Like our food, we want our beer to be fresh, local and hand crafted. Our partnership with local brewers Feral (swan valley) ensures we serve nothing but the best. Look for some surprises and seasonal rotations.
The cocktails on our list are big, bold and flavorful.
Complimenting our foods perfectly we offer delicious contemporary and classic with-a-twist cocktails. Our pitchers are designed to be enjoyed the same way as our food, by sharing with your friends new and old.
