Although no longer a ‘country town’ Toowoomba has very strong ties to the local producers and farmers in the greater Darling Downs region. So it’s no wonder we’re serious about our meat!
Muller Bros has become a local institution with their churrasco, a dramatic Brazilian-style slow-cooked BBQ. Dinner reservations are highly recommended, especially on weekends, which tend to fill up weeks in advance. You only need to think about drinks and sides – otherwise, skewers of pork, beef, chicken, lamb and even pineapple will be brought round to your table. The bar upstairs is known as a highlight of Toowoomba’s growing nightlife, if you’re in the mood to kick on!
The owners of Squealing Pig Farm, which specialises in the free-range rearing of berkshire pigs, have recently taken over the Norville and it’s good news for meat-lovers everywhere. The beautiful historic pub has a new lease on life. The beer garden is the perfect place to spend a weekend afternoon as the smoker fills the air with the delicious scent of BBQ.
Sofra is regularly named as one of the most popular restaurants in Toowoomba. The extensive menu is designed to share and suits a whole variety of dietary requirements. It’s full of hearty and comforting dishes that are a bit Mediterranean, a bit Eastern, but all nourishing and delicious – and while it’s meat-centric, there’s plenty here to keep vegetarian friends and family happy too!
This local restaurant has partnered with Oakey Beef to provide paddock to plate steaks at affordable prices. There’s also plenty of options on the menu to keep everyone happy, as well as a kids’ room and pool table to keep kids of all ages occupied! The beer garden is the perfect place to enjoy some sunshine and knock back a beer.
This local pub is embedded in Toowoomba’s history, established in the 1880s as The Caledonian. The now modern pub is divided into different spaces, with casual bar areas, as well as the full-service restaurant and an open-air beer garden. There’s always something going on at Fitzy’s and locals know to park out the back on Church Street, instead of trying their luck on Margaret Street! Check out the Tuesday night trivia, the daily menu specials, or live music on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons.
