The Glenelg BBQ Inn is a steakhouse that has been around for over 50 years. As you walk in, you can see the premium cuts of meat behind the front counter refridgerator, and at the rear, there are sizzling meats cooking away on the charcoal grill. The menu is simple and straight forward, offering a selection of shaslicks, sausages, pork chops, chicken and various cuts of beef.
For lunch, I had the Mixed Grill which consisted of lamb chops, a barbecue sausage, a porterhouse steak and two chevapchichis. Each portion of meat was tender, succulent and perfectly cooked. The porterhouse steak and lamb chops had nice pinkish centres and I could tell they had used premium cuts. The smokey flavours from the meat really shone through and I was savouring every moment with each bite. The dish came with a traditional salad made up of finely chopped up onions, tomato, potato salad and cabbage. The potato salad was full of flavour and was definitely a highlight.
My friend ordered the 500g T-Bone Steak which was cooked to perfection. Nicely charred on the outside with a lovely pink centre.
The staff were friendly and the service was very good. Drinks arrived promptly and plates were cleared as we finished. The atmosphere was relaxed and the pricing was reasonable. Both the dishes were $25 which is fantastic value considering you’d be paying more elsewhere.
I’ve had a few disappointing steaks in my time, but with their decades of experience, this place certainly know what they’re doing.
