The Wesley Chapel restaurant will be the third Tampa Bay location, joining one at International Plaza that opened in April and another at Westfield Brandon that opened in November. The newest location will also be the first to feature a drive-thru.

“Aussie Grill is all about taste adventure, with fresh, high-quality food prepared to order, served in a fast-casual setting in under four minutes,” said Suk Singh, President of Aussie Grill. “Our first stand-alone restaurant with a drive-thru will add even more convenience for guests.”

Aussie Grill, inspired by the flavors of Outback, features an indulgent menu with a variety of sandwiches, burgers, large plates, and salads made-from-scratch using only the highest quality ingredients. A favorite across the globe is the Crispy Sriracha Chicken Sandwich, hand-breaded and topped with a spicy, tangy, and sweet sauce.

The first Aussie Grill opened in Saudi Arabia in January 2019. There are currently five: two in Saudi Arabia, one in Hong Kong and two in the U.S.  The brand was designed for large international markets as a smaller sized alternative to a table-service experience.  The first U.S. Aussie Grill was an incubator to test ideas for the international menu.  The U.S. location quickly gained popularity, resulting in an additional focus on domestic expansion.


Inspired by the bold flavors of Outback Steakhouse®, Aussie Grill® features a chef-driven menu with adventurous and innovative meals and snacks prepared in under four minutes. The craveable sweet, spicy, salty, bitter an umami flavors are uniquely Aussie Grill. Follow the adventure at and
