We were on holiday from the UK & stayed in Rockhampton for a night. We were told that the best place to eat a steak was at the Hogs Breath Cafe & were definitely not disappointed. The steaks were everything that the menu & our friendly waiter (Jeff) said they would be. All the trimmings & drinks were also great,... More

Overcooked steak, and disinterested staff! 3 out of 4 meals were inedible. The sauce on the Surf and Turf was cold and tasteless, which then made the rubbery seafood, cold and tasteless. Waitress was not concerned with feedback on the meals, not even sure she passed it on to management.

Even though they have annoyingly changed their menu, the steak is still awesome. Their cheap lunches are awesome too.

On quick trip to Rockhampton to see a doctor recently, we had about 90 minutes to spare and decided to try Hoggies for a little lunch. Being midday on a Tuesday, I thought it shouldn't be too busy inside and that 90 minutes should be enough time. On arrival we noticed it was quite busy inside but decided to stay... More

I like my steak cooked to rare so I ordered from the "Grill" section of the menu, where they offer a 250g Eye Fillet Steak. When presented, my steak was tiny and did not look anything like the size a 250g eye fillet usually looks like. The pepper sauce had zero pepper flavour and the mashed potato was dry and... More

Lunch specials are dirt cheap and amazingly delicious! Staff are always friendly and helpful. Meals are out quick regardless of the amount of customers. By far one of my favourite places to have a quick lunch.
