A North East restaurant has been hailed 'the ultimate for responses' after replying to a customer's complaint regarding its 'healthy food'.

Smokin' Joe's in Guisborough is known for its burgers, wings, loaded fries and sides - with droves of customers raving about the 'amazing' food. 

Boasting a five star rating on its Facebook page, the reviews speak for themselves.

However, at the end of last week, the restaurant and takeaway received a complaint from a customer, with a Google review simply saying: "Absolutely unhealthy food" with several sick emojis to follow.

Despite the unflattering review going on Smokin' Joe's Google page, it was the restaurant's response to it which has made people laugh.

Posting the review to its Facebook page, the venue quipped back with: "Hmm - you don't go to a burger restaurant for a salad, do you?"

And it seems the response has made people's days.

After the Facebook post was shared on Saturday (August 12), one person responded: "I prefer plenty of burgers with my salad, that being chips."

People were also quick to say that they also enjoyed the salad from Smokin' Joe's too.

Earlier this month, Smokin' Joe's hit the headlines after a woman threatened to burn the restaurant down if a CCTV appeal to find her and her family, who are alleged to not have paid their bill, was shared.
