- In other words, it is perfect drunk food, salty, savory, and, for Australians at least, nostalgic and full of sentiment. – Hugo Kugiya, Crosscut
- …the meat pies (flaky crust covering meat and cheese; meat and mushroom; meat, cheese, and bacon; etc.) are pretty fantastic as well. Ever since my dad found out you can get them on this side of the outback, I'm not really welcome in his house unless I've picked up a six-pack. – Laura Cassidy, Seattle Weekly
