This place reminds me of Hamburger Mary’s in La or Mo’s in San Diego - the burgers are great. Ask for Viv, she is incredibly fun and made sure we had a great time! Well worth a visit!

On our first night in town, my daughter and I were craving burgers. Rather than settle for an average, chain store burger, I googled and found this GEM of a place 100m from our accommodation. The staff were amazing (welcome to Sydney!), the margaritas were strong, and the burger were hands-down the BEST EVER. My daughter had a classic burger (beef, cheese, tomato, lettuce) and I had the double double (double beef, cheese, bacon, pickle, BBQ sauce) - OMG! We were in burger heaven! The fries were crunchy and delicious, but nothing will beat that burger! Give it a try if you're in the area!

You guys knocked it out the park. The heavenly Clamato juice was just what this Canadian expat needed. Loved the vibe and service, felt just like home. Keep on keepin on team.

Hi Greigh!

Glad we had you covered with the Clamato Juice! Surly's owner is Canadian so he makes sure to have a little bit of home at each of his venues.

Hope to see you back at Surly's again soon.

I was really looking forward to trying an assortment of US BBQ at Surly's. I'd call myself a real BBQ enthusiast, smoke a lot of food myself, so I'm pretty particular. As much as I really enjoyed Surly's bar atmosphere as a cool hangout, the BBQ just didn't quite get there. Ribs were not all that flavorful, if anything a bit too dry for dry rubbed ribs. The burnt brisket ends were also ok, but not mouthwatering. Also at 7:30 when we ordered they had already run out of brisket itself unfortunately. I can't recall the other accompaniments as non stood out other than the crinkle cut fries which were pretty tasty. Having just had outstanding BBQ in Melbourne recently, I'm afraid I can't give Surly's the nod for top Sydney BBQ in that same vein.
