Christmas Day Buffet Lunch at the Rodeo Bar and Grill

Located at the prestigious Isa Hotel, the Rodeo Bar and Grill is hosting a Christmas Day Buffet Lunch for everyone.

With excellent value for money, the buffet lunch promises deliciously decadent options that have been prepared by highly trained and skilled chefs. Meals cooked to perfection is an understatement, and it is no wonder the quality of food you will find at the Rodeo Bar and Grill has led to its renowned fame throughout Mount Isa.

Here, you will find customer service that will go beyond expectations, mouth watering food that will have you going back for more, an exceptional drinks menu containing plenty of options both local and imported, and so much more.

Expect the place to be jam packed due to popular demand, so booking in advance is recommended along with showing up on time.
