Just hearing their name your brain starts conjuring visions of mighty meaty feasts that are as smoky as they come and are drizzled with moreish BBQ sauce. And you wouldn't be far off; that's exactly what Bison BBQ do best!

Located in Ferrymead, Bison BBQ has got that ranch life all figured out with a family-friendly restaurant that deals only in huge portions. Inspired by the mammoth barbecues in the southern states of the US, they're keeping it cool and casual, inviting diners to simply come as they are to experience some barbecued meat-loaded plates and platters. Let's be honest, a white shirt and tight jeans won't cut the mustard here; comfort must prevail!

And in the words of Bison BBQ, let them eat meat! We hope you've come with a roaring appetite because their Texas-style BBQ meals don't hold back. Depending on how many of you there are, you can opt for as much meat, sides, bread, house pickles and sauce as you want. The meat includes goodies like house-smoked sausage, NZ pork ribs smothered in a BBQ glaze, and tender beef brisket.
