Dennistoun Bar-B-Que (Duke Street, Glasgow) : Review

V: 10th February 2020


I have been told about Dennistoun Bar-B-Que a few times, and always meant to take a visit but I was never really in the area.

Tonight I decided to take a drive and visit and see what I was missing.

The Food

The people who recommended here told me I have to get a burger, so I couldn’t let them down could I?

Wow they had so many great sounding burgers it was very difficult to choose, but continue reading to find out what one I ordered tonight.

Side

Seasoned Fries : £2.85 (V)

Skinny fries!! this was a great start as I LOVE skinny fries, and they smelled really good.

These were seasoned and had a slight kick to them, and were very very nice.

Main Course :

This was tonight’s burger of choice…

Kinny Burger £8.25 (add bacon £1.15 extra)

Now how good does that look, and that’s exactly what I thought when my order was ready.

This looked and smelled amazing so it was time to dig in and see how good these burgers actually were.

WOW!!! this was amazing!!! it was perfectly cooked, the bacon nice and crispy, and every bite was just mmmmmmmmm

Is it bad that I could have easily had another after this as I really enjoyed this!!!

Drink :

I was also told to try the Mexican Cola from here as its much better, so I did…

Mexican Coca Cola

I cant remember the cost but lets say around the £2/3

This tasted just like how Coca Cola used to taste when I was in high school and I will be getting this again when I return.

Visit Overall :

I am so glad that I drove here tonight, I had a great meal and one that I could easily have again.

The burger for me is currently my favourite, and currently for me my top spot for burgers as this was just mmmm

I will be adding Dennistoun Bar-B-Que to my top spots page.

See you soon guys 🙂

Well this is a first for me, as I have had many plans over the past few years to come here and eat or drink…or even both but something has always made me change my plans.

Tonight I was attending a Jagermeister Cold Brew event so I thought I would visit early and finally see the Tiki Bar and try the food.

The Food

Since I had an event to attend I didn’t want to be late, so I decided just to go for small dishes for quickness….but next visit I will try some other dishes.

Dinner

Honey Pork Ribs £6.50

pork ribs in sticky honey sauce (Ce) (GF, DF, NF)

This smelled good and looked nice, and I have not had ribs for ages so I was really looking forward to this.

This was messy, full of flavour and just mega mmm the meat was tender and the sauce was really good.

Its a bit costly for what you get compared to other restaurants.

Salt & Pepper Squid £6.50

lightly battered squid tossed in mixed spices with Thai sweet & sour dressing, served with green Mayo

I love this dish so I had to try it here.

I picked up my squid and it was soft! huh what ever sauce they drizzled over the top has made it soft…shouldn’t this be crispy?

It was nice but the flavour was lacking and also I expected them to be crispy or even just a little.

Again a little costly for the portion size.

Sweet :

Deep Fried Mars Bar £3.00

I saw this and had to try how here do it.

Ok so this was actually really good, I think I still prefer the one from a chip shop but it was nice here and I would have this again here.

Visit Overall :

What a disappointment, don’t get me wrong the food was good but a little costly for the portion sizes as I have had these dishes at other restaurants for cheaper and was just as good or better.

Sorry guys, I will try something else next time I visit.

Back again to use my second and last (so far) Itison Voucher, and tonight I was trying another burger.

Main Course

The Lemmy (normally £9.50)
Beef burger topped with BBQ pulled pork, shoestring onions, cheddar & jack daniels BBQ sauce.

When this arrived it looked goooood and smelled goood, but just like last time lets start with the fries.

The fries just like my last two visits, were very nice and cooked perfectly but I would actually these were MUCH nicer than the last two visits. What ever you have changed guys, or if its the chef tonight don’t change it!!

Overall

This time I am very glad I decided to go for a burger, as I really enjoyed it.

Guys you need to take a visit here with or without a voucher, its a good atmosphere to enjoy your meal or drinks in.
