Pistol Pete’s Food n Blues is the Southern feast you’ve been looking for this Spring. It’s the only place in the Geelong region where you can taste, smell, hear and actually feel like you are right in the middle of the Southern States – minus the travel fare.
Drawing from passions of both blues music and the cuisine of the Southern States, owner Pete Raimondo has aimed to create a true American experience since opening back in 2014, now creating a place you can go late at night for a full dining experience, or for quality food takeaway while experiencing the true flavours of southern Louisiana. You can also pre-order your Southern feast via their online app when you can’t be bothered heading out into the weather.
The menu consists of three sections. A range of ‘Vittles’ are great for something to nibble on, while ‘In Ya Hand’ covers your range of burgers and po boys, from the crispy Southern Chicken BLT, the tasty Mojo Burger, to the Shrimp Po’Boy and Pete’s famous New Orleans style Gumbo.
‘On Ya Plate’ steps it up with scrumptious eats like tender Pulled Pork, Jambalaya or Southern Style Chicken with your own choice of sides, or there’s sharing options like the Pistol Platter and The N’Awlins Taster Plate to take your taste buds directly to the Southern States.
There’s also no stress for those with the dietary requirements, as they have a range of vegetarian and gluten free options, including the Southern Style Tofu Burger or Jambalaya with Okra.
With blues music as an overarching theme, there’s a staged area for live blues music, which is now hosted six times a week. The venue is always looking for new artists to showcase – whether they are blues musicians, soul, folk or root.
It’s the place to go to for a pleasant Spring evening, enjoy the hot food and live music with brews direct from Louisiana.
