Reviewed 3 December 2012

Love going to ricks for their fantastic burgers which my hubby and sons love. They also always have healthy options available for me too which are always so enjoyable. Even better is now they are licenced you can have a local or Japanese beer to enjoy with your lunch whilst taking in the lovely beer garden atmosphere. Great for kids too. Reasonably priced. Excellent service.

“Unexpected find!”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

We were taking a drive and intended to eat Montville, but on the way there we saw Rick's garage and made the snap decision to eat at Ricks...what a GREAT find! We had watched an episode of Man vs Food the night before so my husband thought he would try his luck at the "Big One" a huge burger and if you finish you get to write your name on the ceiling. At $20 we figured it was worth the price to try his luck....it is a huge burger but according to my husband tasted really good which explains why he was able to finish it! I opted for the chicken burger which was really good and the fries with aoili were very yummy! We sat inside so my husband could watch the cricket, but there is a great outdoor area where you can eat as well. We loved the atmosphere...old US diner style with Elvis tunes playing! Service was very friendly. It is really worth the short drive from Noosa and I am sure we will have a few more folks who are keen to take up the burger challenge!

“Superb burgers, great people”
Reviewed 25 October 2012 via mobile

Had lunch at Ricks Garage with a friend, the best made steak burger I've ever had, and the beer was truly ice cold. Fantastic outdoor area with picnic table seating under large brolleys. I'm going back tomorrow morning for breakfast!

“Amazing food!!!!!”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

This restaurant is a little gem in the little sleepy town of Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast. They have the biggest most delicious burgers, so big that if you can finish one you have sign their ceiling. They also have more delicate options such as their chicken, bacon and avocado burger and yummy steak fries. There is a 50's bar open Thurrsday to Sunday nights with outstanding decor, and a great grassy outdoor area with umbrellas. Also we have yet to try their breakfast menu but from the sound of it we can't wait to try it.
