There was a 10% bank holiday surcharge which put us off straight off, as Brits we don’t see this although there seems to be a fair few places do it. We ordered chopped brisket, which was a bit fatty and dry, mac and cheese, which was okay but nothing special, sausage which was okay, and pulled pork fries, which were the best bit. The gravy was a bit salty but really delicious overall. Not the worst bbq place we’ve been to but definitely not the best.

Had our staff Christmas party here. Nothing to write home about. Food was ok if you like the typical American fare. Most of the staff were friendly besides the 2 blokes at the bar who mocked me and my friend who asked for sparkling water due to loads of free alcohol available. Yeah not everyone can drink alcohol (illness/ pregnancy) and the eye rolling was not appreciated. Poor attitude. Not recommended.

Feels like you’re in a bungalow on Rainey St in Austin. Great vibe, the burgers were good. Free shuffle board and video games, great fun. (The ladies toilets need some love and cleanliness though).

Great place for a meal and beer. Looks inviting from the outside and comfortable on the in. Burgers were good washed down with a jug or two of the YH's newtowner. Sides such as nachos, coleslaw, mac and cheese were good as well but the surly fries could be tastier. Did not experience much of the desert menu but pumpkin pie was ordinary. Staff were great and I will return with friends.

Really friendly staff, really take the time to offer recommendations. The food is amazing, from the southern fried chicken to the brisket burger with mac n cheese, oh Lordy, I could live on nothing but this food. Their in house sauces are fantastic and really capture the southern flavours of the USA. I would dine here every night if it weren't so far away from my home, but I am always looking for excuses to be near Surlys at dinner time.
