Southern Grace Diner by Big Boy BBQ

Slow-cooked meat any way you like it.

The motto at Big Boy BBQ is 'Slow Food… Fast', meaning that the meat is generously rubbed with spices and slow-cooked for up to 16 hours — but the crew can still dish them out quick sticks once orders start coming in. The Caulfield South restaurant had an overhaul in 2019 and this new concept, Southern Grace Diner, is an homage to the traditional 'meat and three' eateries that are dotted all over the US deep south. The menu is straightforward enough. First, choose between juicy smoked meat or ribs, then select up to three sides to enjoy with it — think salads, fries, coleslaw, crackling, vegetable gratin, mash and gravy or mac 'n' cheese. Be sure to save room for sweet potato pie for dessert, too.

This spot offers BYO beer and wine for only $5 surcharge per person, and if you fall in love with the addictive southern-style barbecue sauces, glazes and vinegar dips, the restaurant sells takeaway jars for $13. Southern Grace Diner offers BYO beer and wine.
