Here at The Urban List, we don’t discriminate. We love everyone. But there are some types of people out there we just can’t wrap our heads around. Like people who are rude to waiters. People who push in front in the coffee queue. People who don’t hold the lift when they see you coming.

And vegetarians.

We’re sorry to all our vego readers, but we just can’t comprehend. Have you even tried slow-cooked ribs?

So as an ode to meat, we have compiled a list of Perth’s best destinations for meat lovers. Put your stretchy pants on, kids.

Side Door Barbecue


If you truly love meat, you can’t go past Side Door Barbecue. Take some friends and get the incredible share plates that arrive at your table covered in ribs, brisket, chicken wings, and pork lollipops. You’ll have the meat sweats afterwards, but boy will it be worth it.

Holy Smokes


The team at Holy Smokes know that all anyone really wants in life is world peace, and a good piece of meat. Which is why their no-fuss menu is both straight-forward and mouth-watering. Beef jerky, pork scratching, chicken wings, brisket, pulled pork, pastrami, ribs… The list goes on.

Deen Street BBQ


Deen Street BBQ in Northbridge serve some of the biggest, baddest, juiciest and most delicious ribs and meaty goodness in Perth. This droolworthy meat house also dishes out mac n cheese, American brisket and salads (but honestly who goes to an American BBQ to get a salad?). 

Pleased To Meet You


Pleased To Meet You has a section on their menu that is simply titled ‘Animal’. We like. Angus steak, roast pork, chicken, chorizo or coal-roasted pork suckling. Meat lovers, rejoice.

Old Faithful Bar & BBQ


The perfect place for meat lovers, Old Faithful has plenty of options on their ‘Today’s Meat’ menu. Ribs, barbeque chicken, pork belly, beef brisket or smoked chicken drumsticks—take some mates so you can try everything.

The Old Crow


Plenty of unique and inventive meat options await you at The Old Crow, like smoked beef brisket with cheese curd, Angus beef flank with smoked marrow, fried chicken wings with blue cheese and—chocolate lamb shoulder—no, you didn’t read that incorrectly. Chocolate and lamb, together at last in beautiful harmony.

Brooklyn Lounge


The team at Brooklyn Lounge dishes up 12-hour slow cooked barbecue ribs, spicy chicken wings with blue cheese, Wagyu steak and beef and lamb meatballs. Plus they have an impressive selection of good old fashioned American burgers.

Rockpool Bar & Grill


Obviously if it’s a quality piece of steak you’re after, you have to go see what all the Neil Perry fuss is about. You won’t be disappointed at Rockpool.

Manuka Woodfired Kitchen


Don’t assume that a woodfired kitchen only serves woodfired pizza—oh no, the team at Manuka dish up some seriously good woodfired meat of all varieties, like pork belly, beef sirloin, miso chicken and chorizo sausage. Run, don’t walk.

Miss Kitty’s Saloon


Anywhere that offers pork ribs and chicken wings by the half-kilo is serious about their meat. Miss Kitty's Saloon's marinades are next-level, and they also dish up seriously good sliders, filled with braised lamb, pulled pork and honey-braised beef.
