The Best Steak in Town
Hog's Breath Cafe is a well known restaurant which has been famous for making top quality steaks since 1989. They specialise in providing delicious mouth-watering prime rib steaks. Each individual Hog's Breath has its own little quirky aspects in terms of decorating and the atmosphere it provides, but one thing always stays the same and that's the top quality food and service it provides.
Hog's Breath at Blacktown is one of my local Hog's Breath Cafes and it provides great quality food mixed with a lovely atmosphere and great service from their floor staff.
My recent visit to Hog's Breath proved just what a high standard this restaurant provides its customers because just as we had stepped in the door there was already someone attending to us and took us to our table and provided us with menus. At Hog's Breath Blacktown, they have a variety of tables to suit every family size. Along the edges of the room they have booths, suitable for medium sized families, and in the middle they have groups of smaller tables of 2,3,4,5,6 and even larger tables for bigger groups of people. We sat at a table for two.
Not even 5 minutes after we had sat down, there was a lady who came to introduce herself, told us her name and that she would be looking after us for the night, she pointed us towards the blackboard with all the specials and asked us whether we wanted any drinks or starters. Within 10-15 minutes the starters were brought out to our table and the drinks were at our table within 5 minutes. The lady who served us provided top quality service the entire night and made our night very enjoyable.
The starters were delicious. We had a plate of four chicken strips with a side of honey mustard sauce and garlic bread. It was the perfect way to start off our meals. Shortly after we had finished there was someone there to collect our plates for us.
The main meals were out fairly quickly and as soon as you saw them you knew it was going to be a delicious meal. They were aesthetically pleasing, they were a good size and great value for money. The two meals we ordered were the special 500g sirloin steak, cooked medium with dianne sauce, chips and vegetables and the chicken mushroom with chips and vegetables. Both meals were delicious. They were cooked very well, provided lots of flavour, in terms of temperature both meals were very hot and were a great value for money. Not long after we got our meals, another staff member came to our table to make sure our meals were okay. During the course of our main meal our server also came over to make sure everything went well with our meal, and later came to offer as more drinks as soon as she realised ours were finished. I would definitely say that the experience at Hog's Breath Blacktown was a positive one and I would definitely go back.

Overall I would definitely recommend Hog's Breath Blacktown. It was a great place to share a meal with my partner, the atmosphere created in the restaurant was great, the tables were situated far enough away from other people that you had your own personal space and their was the ability to hear my partner when talking. The service was great. Despite the weather being cold and raining, it was nice and warm inside the restaurant, making for a great night out even with cool weather. I thought that the prices were fairly reasonable considering the portion size of the meals and the quality of food on the plate. I would definitely recommend everyone to go to Hog's Breath Cafe in Blacktown.
Sounds like you had a great night, glad to hear. If you get yourself a frequent diner card, you can get 25% off your main meal every time you visit any Hog's in Australia or New Zealand! How good is that?
