About Blue Ox Babe BBQ
We are a Texas inspired, low n’ slow BBQ Joint located in Pukekohe. Serving live fire barbecue meats and classic southern hot & cold sides. She’s generally pretty fast pace at BOB’s but you’ll always see us stopping to spin some yarns with our guests. Step into our winter garden, an all-purpose outdoor garden retreat that adapts to all weather conditions. Whether you’re catching up with the lads for a few brews and BBQ, out for a cheeky long lunch with the girls or having that family gathering, we have various spaces to suit most occasions. You’ll generally see people for all over New Zealand coming to visit us and of course to see the country’s biggest barbecue!
Overall had a good experience but way over priced and I’m not the biggest smoke expert but the meats tasted all the same. The ribs weren’t very juicy or smothered in sauce as expected. The brisket was the best. Value for money? Not at all but overall decent experience.
Once again BoB comes up trumps! Absolutely delicious food, great range of drinks and service to match. You would have rocks in ya head if you didnt give BoBs a crack!
Delicious as always ! Top service dealing with our lot !
Thank you for a wonderful experience,
Simply amazing. Amazing pork belly, almost brisket like. Best loaded fries I've had in ages.
Awesome food awesome service/people 10/10 will be coming back
Brilliant again , Food and service were Exellant.
Great value for money. Would be nice to have a few more sides to choose from. Wouldn't think of mac n cheese as a side dish. Really enjoyed the pickles. The Brisket was the best, really tender.
Always a great time and awesome atmosphere. Our server was amazing and tentative for our table. Will be back again soon.
Awesomeness!! Highly reccomend. Coming back for sure
Awesome food. Love this restaurant.
Good food friendly. Great service.
BBQ brisket was A+, great outdoor setting but it ends there. Service is questionable, server forgot water and had to ask to 3 times, food quantity could improve for sharing platter, Mac and cheese was runny - kid size for 2 adults.
Awsome service and great food. Well worth the money.
Wonderful meal with fantastic service!
Great Texas style low and slow BBQ,service with plenty of southern hospitality. The beef cheeks that were on special were amazing.
Thanks team worth the wait. Excellent service, hard case crew. Prevously managed restaurants was impressed. A carnivores dream we will be back. Mark definitely add some simple desserts to the menu I was full but wanted a dessert it was the only thing missing. Cheers
We had two tables booked (11 people) both tables had orders missing. Our table had a beef cheek missing and a drink. The other table had a chicken portion and beef cheek portion missing too. We did get them in the end when we told the wait staff they were missing, but would be better if we didn't need to remind them. There were quite a few things on the menu that weren't available also.
It was disappointing that chicken, brisket, sausages and ribs were not available given our table was booked for 6pm. The food and wine that we did have were superb as always
Great food and a great team. Atmosphere was a bit restrictive under Lev 2 but Blue Ox Babe have a good process following the rules and protecting everyone. The crew are super friendly and the food was awesome. Generous portions and fantastic quality. We'll definitely be back.
We were a group of 11 and from the get-go we were looked after by our lovely and very attentive waitress without flaw. The food was beyond our expectation, yummy, fresh and most importantly made with love. Thank you so much we had been looking forward to dining with Blue Ox Babe BBQ for a long time and it was worth the wait. We will be back. Murti Family xxx
Great service & great food 😊
Great place. Great vibe. The brisket was fantastic, loved it. The pork belly was surprising dry, thought that would be tender. Sides were great. The burgers were delicious. All round a solid 8.5. Absolutely considering coming back.
Had a awesome feed of brisket. Little annoying they had runout of sausage, but that’s something for next time. All in all a very good experience and will be back again.
