Service was absolutely terrible, we had to wait to have our order taken and the girl that did it could not have looked any more miserable. Food was terrible plus they didn't have the specials on the menu. Place looked dirty and seats were disgusting. Should've payed attention to all the signs..
If it weren't for one of the girls that noticed how bad a time we were having and came to ask how we were doing this place would be the lowest of the low. Hopefully she finds a better place to work at.

Terrible service tables not cleared and we were ignored. Nachos were soggy and cold. Other food was only just okay. The specials outside seem good but are not nice at all.

We went Belly Busters after thinking that the lunch special menu looked pretty good for not much money. The woman at the front showed us to a table. We only got two menus despite the fact that there were three of us but that wasn't a huge deal. The waitress, who clearly hates her job, took about 20 minutes to take our order. Our drinks took another 15 minutes to get to out table although we could see them sitting on the counter, we nearly went and got them ourselves. Even then two of our drink orders were wrong.
Our food was acceptable and didn't take all that long. The poor table behind us ordered their meal before ours, and had the same meal as me, but it came half an hour after ours.
We were also not given cutlery or napkins so we had to eat with our hands. We would've asked for cutlery but the waitress had naffed off to the toilet for about 5 minutes.
As we left one of the waitresses commented on the lack of tips which we weren't surprised about and she shouldn't be either.
The only two people in the whole restaurant that looked like they were working hard were the two behind the bar.
We won't be going back.

Good rump steak. The pork ribs were just average, but after living in Texas I have high standards for BBQ ribs. Huge portions. Good valu for money.

Went to Belly Busters for a quick burger when I was in Surfers Paradise and it was one of the worst culinary experiences I've had. Half of the tables were filthy with dirty plates sitting there, lazy waiting staff and food coming out at different times! Took 20 minutes to get my drink!! And then another 20 minutes to get my burger which was nicely cooked but you could hardly find any meat in the massive bun! And the sauce was all over the outside of the bun and had just been thrown together and the cheese wasn't even melted! And they've got the cheek to charge 21 dollars! I asked a waitress for the WiFi password and got a very blunt 'no' in response. I saw a young family of 5; mum and dad and two kids had their food and the last poor kid had nothing for 5 minutes until it eventually came out! Attitude of the waiting staff was disgraceful; lazy and couldn't even crack a smile! I'll never be eating at Belly Busters again
