Sunnier weather may be here but it’s a brave man who is thinking about setting up his BBQ outside.
When it comes to beautifully smoked meaty treats, best leave it to the experts.
And they don’t come any more expert than the kitchen team at MeatHook, providers of today’s tasty Big Deal.
Launched at Partick Cross towards the end of last year, MeatHook is a sweet new BBQ and burger joint with a menu which reads like a carnivore’s dream.
And with a location which is just a hop, skip and a jump from Kelvinhall subway, it’s a very convenient dream.
Their meaty flame-grilled burgers are made with locally sourced beef and chicken while southern style BBQ rubs and spices mean that the food emerging from their smoker tastes divine.
In fact, the chefs at MeatHook on Partick Bridge Street take it so seriously that they even make their own mustards, ketchup and relishes.
Meal for two
Available Monday to Saturday, this Big Deal is for two people to each have any burger or hot dog from the all day menu. Or you can share a BBQ platter.
There are several burgers to choose from. We like the sound of the chilli beef but can see why you might go for the char grilled shrimp or the chicken topped with pineapple relish.
Veggie burger options include the falafel and five bean chilli or the smoked field mushroom and halloumi.
The dogs are available as pork or veggie options and can be crowned with toppings such as sauerkraut, chilli cheese or cream cheese and jalapeño.
The sharing platters come in two varieties. Choose between pulled pork, brisket and smoked chicken breast or the wings, ribs & bratwurst platter.
MeatHook has not been open for yonks. Some happy diners are already making their views clear on the venue’s 5pm page:
‘Great find. Found this restaurant on 5pm and will be back! Pulled pork burgers were lovely and food and drinks were excellent value. Staff were lovely with service extremely efficient!’ Rating 5/5
This chuffed review is from TripAdvisor:
‘Meat-tastic. I visited this establishment recently with a friend and we were delighted with the food. We got a sharing platter for our main course which was excellent; the ribs were particularly good. The sweet potato fries were also a hit! Will definitely be back.’
MeatHook is the sort of place where people pop in for a drink or a bite to eat and end up staying all night.
Play safe. Keep the BBQ in the shed and let MeatHook do the hard work with today’s two man Big Deal on a burger, dog or sharing platter.
