One of Dubbo's best kept culinary secrets. Closest thing to a genuine US style burger experience in the Central West.

Came here with another couple and our two young children(2). Kids meals are good value with the free paddle pop included. Very attentive staff and great Mojitos! Burgers were fresh and delicious- was just missing a pickle on the cheeseburger. Onion rings fantastic and so accomodating with our kids. Would love to come back but aren't local to the area.

Got takeaway from The Monkey Bar tonight & it was amazing! I got their weekly burger special the 'Super Freak'! Their burger buns, so good! I loved everything about it! The girls at the bar were super friendly & even though they were really busy I didn't wait long for my takeaway! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Thought I would check out The Monkey Bar recently and I was not disappointed! My partner had a burger (he loved it!) and I had the beef ribs.. OMG..the meat just fell off the bone.. They were tender and full of flavour! Laid back atmosphere.. Friendly service! Everything was spot on! 👌

Fantastic nachos, perfect size for one person. Bessie burger was delicious & perfect size for my 11 year old. I had a schnitzel with chips & salad. Too big for a little person. But still delicious.

Laid back atmosphere and good burgers. The other dishes looked good too. Excellent veggie burger option for those looking for an alternative to meat.

Came here on a whim. By far some of the best food I've had in a long time. Not much to look at on the outside but walk in to a nice relaxed place. Had the cheese burger, Clive Palmer burger with onion rings and sweet potatoe fries. All brilliant! Couldn't fault! And then there was desert! Red velvet churro... More
