The food isn’t cheap cuts of meat either, good quality. Bring the family here all the time and our visiting friends and they are all blown away by the food and surprised at how much it doesn’t sting the wallet.”

55 Reviews for Bronco’s Steak House
Unfortunately on the last two occasions I have been I have been really disappointed, and suggest the owners take on board feedback to remedy as if I was a first time visitor I won’t be impressed.
I notice staff are young and need to be more attentive to the customer – we were directed to a table which was obviously not properly cleaned (crumbs on the table and seats), we never got water that was asked for, and food was not served at the same time – so our meals went cold while we waited for the kids meal – which was piping hot so the child couldn’t eat it straight away. In general – staff would benefit basic training – were clearing tables rather than keeping an eye on paying customers, clearing plates before others on the table had finished.
I have been to Broncos for most of my life – but if nothing changes, I have to say I will need to find another local!

The bad reviews all seem to come from lunch. Different chef for dinner service ?

Recently went for dinner, my partner ordered the Bronco Rib… well he couldn’t finish it as it was huge..but he was definitely super happy.. I had the Fillet Mignon which is called something like a rustler on the menu and it came out perfectly medium..
The cheesecake we shared tasted homemade and was doggy bagged with no qualms.
The decor is quaint and the music suits the Steak House vibe.. the service was as expected, not fussy just neighbourhood friendly.
However, all that took a dive when the food was served. A third of the steak (medium rare ordered) was raw at once end, the Pork Chop which was described as succulent; was anything but that, and the Baby Back Ribs were overdone and chewy.
Seriously; the quality of food as it is will not bring me back; there are heaps of better diners out there.
Came back last night (25/4) as a group of 7. All the food was delivered promptly and everything was perfect. The service was great from friendly and efficient staff and the food was good quality, well cooked and presented. This is definitely a good informal and relaxed place to eat.

I ordered Surf and Turf. Unfortunately, it was a bit dry and bland. Honestly, they could have been a bit more generous with the sauce! Hubby ordered medium rare steak – it passed the steak test, but nothing to shout about.
They should spruce the place up – our table was quite dirty and had dried bird poo stuck in between the crevices of the table. Also, their waitresses are terribly slow with understanding or accepting orders – I asked for the menu twice and she forgot – despite walking past our table so many times. Honestly, how hard is it to remember orders when the restaurant is hardly full of guests?

p.s (the kitchen definitely needs a tidy up. Not the best look when your bathrooms are just across from it)

Our Mains arrived after a shortish wait, but it looked and tasted quite dry. My chicken breast looked like it had fought Mike Tyson. My wife also commented that he meal was fairly dry and uninspiring !!!
The several waitresse’s that attended us, were friendly and often checked if everything was OK.
It will be quite sometime before I will dine here again
Not sure we will be back.

Apart from that we were pleased with the food and service at Bronco’s and would not hesitate to recommend it.
Sticky tables, bad service, bad food.
RESULT – Inconsistent and not worth the gamble – not going there again and would NOT recommend it to anyone who has choice!
Our food and drinks was tasty & lovely not rushed at all, we had 2 entree’s the Cobb loaf with garlic butter and baby back rib’s tasty we loved them, then followed with our mains 2 Crumb Chicken Breast Schnitzel with salad and fries and then a Banana Split and drinks also we enjoyed our self’s so much we will recommend Broncos to all our family & friends, for $76.00 that we spent for all that i think that’s pretty good value for our money.
We gave up and walked out. I don’t think the staff laughing and joking behind the bar even noticed we’d even been there at all.
But it did mean we found a fantastic Thai restaurant at the Gardens in Manurewa. Thai Tradition. 4,1/2 stars.
Food is always consistent, and tastes the same every time and the size does not change either. Their entrees are delicious and I would recommend trying the Cobb Loaf with whipped Garlic Butter. Its delicious!!
Prices are very reasonable for what you receive and service is usually good.
Have been going to Bronco’s since I was a kid and I would rate them very well to anyone who asked me.
good food tho
