All you can eat Pizza Hut Gympie

all you can eat pizza hut

So I've been spreading the rumour that the Gympie Pizza Hut was the last all-you-can-eat joint left in Queensland, a quick google search proves that to be very wrong, but hey, it did make the experience a lot more elusive

I've been dreaming about this all-you-can-eat experience since forever or at least a few months back now. Ben and I even had an earlier failed attempt when they wouldnt let Ben in cause he wasn't wearing shoes...let's say it was a very quiet car trip home. Ben said he would make it up to me, so we went back last Friday and dived into it!

Now I was pretty confident I could get my money's worth here, $15.95 to be exact, but to my surprise it only took a few slices in to realise I was going to struggle

I don't know if it was nerves or what but in the end I only managed 7 slices....7!!
Even saying that makes me shake my head in disgust

Ben managed 9 slices, bit better and to be honest we did eat some of their garlic bread, mousse and select items from the salad bar, which by the way seriously had nothing on sizzler!

At the end of the day my childhood experiences of the all-you-can-eat experience was much sweeter, maybe because I distinctly remember getting some Land Before Time puppets, sadly lacking from this dining experience!

Afterwards we dragged our swollen bellies down to the gympie park/lake thing

On the way back home, Ben and I spotted the giant kangaroo at a rest stop. Ben did a risky turn around so we could get a photo, ahh that in itself more than made up for the previous, lack of shoes, experience

He also won three skill tester toys which I thought was pretty rad :)

So all in all, an awesome night!
