Gladstone residents would love to have a Sizzler restaurant in town.
Gladstone residents would love to have a Sizzler restaurant in town.

GLADSTONE residents are crying out for some healthy eating options, if comments on The Observer's Facebook page are anything to go by.

Responding to a column by reporter Kara Irving about the lack of choice in takeaway and eating out options, it was clear residents were keen to see new businesses open in the booming city.

Topping the list of wanted eateries was Sizzler and Hog's Breath.

With a Hog's Breath on the way at Kirkwood, at least that need will be met.

Owner Alex Staines said the store had been due to open in August, but the developers had "hit some hurdles that are completely out of our control".

"The Gladstone Regional Council have been fantastic throughout this project," Mr Staines said.

"The GRC, particularly Mayor Gail Sellers, have been very supportive and know the Gladstone community is screaming out for more family-friendly dining venues."

Also on residents' wishlist was Mexican, sushi, Sumo Salad, Nandos and healthy options such as a sandwich bar or Boost Juice.

Other suggestions included Grill'd, Middle Eastern food, and the return of former Gladstone business Pie World. 

Our Facebook likers answer the question: What takeaway or eating out options would you like to see in Gladstone?

Susan Neil: Sizzler, Hog's Breath,Boost Juice and Aporto, and a nice salad and sammy bar other than Subway, where you can get fresh fruit salads, rolls, wraps etc.

Jaimi-lee Stimson: Mexican! Healthy options like a RAW restaurant or Sumo Salad.

Catherine Harris: Sizzlers and lots of sushi.

Kate Larson: More "restaurants" like Rockhampton has got. Then maybe we will get the same rate of diabetes they have. Healthy options would be great. Sumo Salad or an organic vego healthy place. That would be awesome!

Roslyn Bambrick: Sumo Salad.

Rowan Walters: Hogs Breath would be great!!

Kerry McDougall Perrie: A big complex housing heaps of different dishes like a food court that's in Rocky or Brisbane or Sydney.

Rach West: Sizzlers, Nandos and Hog's Breath.

Joshua Valks: Nandos, Cactus Jacks, Hoggies and Healthy Habits.
