Everyone knows that Rip Van Winkle slept for 40 years straight.
But most people don’t know what actually woke him up. In fact, it was the scent of burgers and onions wafting from a nearby griddle that jerked him out of his slumber.
If burgers get you motivated as well, then this Big Deal from Van Winkle BBQ Pit in Gallowgate is going to be right up your street…
American-style grill bar
Van Winkle is based on the Gallowgate near to the Barrowlands. Bourbon, BBQ and burgers are the mainstays of the menus and, as you might expect, the decor also takes its cue from the US of A.
Soak up a few southern charms with today’s Big Deal on burgers and beers for two people. Your beer will be a pint of Tennent’s each. You can make the most of this offer until the end of February 2020, making it an ideal stocking filler.
Lip-smacking burger magic
You can choose most burgers from Van Winkle’s menu, including the flavoursome bourbon BBQ pulled pork burger; the hefty double 3oz steak chilli cheese burger, and the veggie halloumi burger with sweet chilli sauce.
Burgers are served in the Van Winkle brioche bun with lettuce and house dressing, with fries on the side.
Note, the Van Winkle monster burger is excluded.
Step into the Deep South
Van Winkle’s artfully stressed corrugated tin, stripped wood tables and brick walls all give you the feeling that you might just have stepped into a honky tonk in the Kentucky backwoods.
A big screen shows the major sporting events while Americana bands provide the entertainment on Thursday evenings.
Happy grill food fans
Since opening in 2017, Van Winkle BBQ Pit has earned itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Here is a snippet from one review:
‘Quirky and good quality. We went for lunch today, fab atmosphere, excellent music and tasty…would return when next passing, excellent service.’ 5/5
Combine it with a gig
Since Van Winkle is handy for the Barrowlands, it would be a smart move to pair this burger and beer Big Deal for two with a gig.
It’s also perfect for those evenings when you’d like to escape from cooking and head to a bourbon-soaked, backwoods Kentucky bar instead (and let’s face it, we all have those moments).
