Well, the place does look rough from the outside but the inside is worse. Food on the floor, a dirty tablecloth, filthy menus. I am really surprised this can this be no 1?

We should have seen the warnings. We went a week ago on a Friday and the place was empty. Surely all the locals would go to the No 1 steak place in Rockhampton.

You cook the steaks yourself which is fine but do watch for the flying fat which does go over your clothes. Don't dress posh, The napkins were some of the thinnest paper napkins we have experienced and so do not protect your clothes.

The food is pretty good, big portions and the staff are friendly, but that does not make up for the place being dirty.

We were travelling up the coast from Brisbane to Cairns and being told Rocky was the place to go for meat we quickly looked at where to eat, this place came out on top from where to eat... we certainly were not disappointed!

Upon arriving we were slightly unsure from the look of the building, but the expression never judge a book by its cover is definitely the case here! when sat down it was explained how the food would come out on a hot stone. The had a very informative description of where the different cuts came from and what the positives of each were.

Once chosen the food was quickly out, we were then asked to cut a piece and try it in its natural state, this bit of steak is the best steak i have ever eaten, a feeling that continued as i devoured the rest of the meal.

If i was local i could easily see myself eating here regularly!

Rockhampton is the Queensland cattle capital hence we thought, well thats the place for a beef steak !

In an unpretentious building, this was a classic case of dont judge the book by ita cover.. Having venue expectations to match big standards, we were unsure about the lunch stop until we walked in and delicious appetizing smell got our culinary needs to a critical point - we sat right down and ordered the big ones -2 orders of 500g expecting to leave with takeaway...

Soon 2 large raw cuts were served, to our surprise - yet on a hot stone platter, with detailed instructions of how to enjoy own cuts and final finish of servings...fun to do indeed and no flavour nor juice was lost this way...

No takeaway left at - as the chips(fries) were home made and delicious too..
