Few people know this but when Elvis sang Always On My Mind he was always thinking about burgers.
Snap up today’s Big Deal on two burgers with hand-cut chips at Broomhill’s Velvet Elvis and you’ll quickly see why a man might become obsessed.
Velvet Elvis is a neighbourhood bar and grill offering casual dining and drinking on Dumbarton Road.
An enjoyably quirky joint, the decor mixes the fittings of an Edwardian butcher’s shop with an old school vinyl jukebox.
The menus are a combination of pub classics and well established bistro dishes – all prepared with care using local, seasonal ingredients.
Two burgers, twice the fun
Available noon to 10pm, Monday to Friday, this Big Deal is for two people to each have a burger with fries and all the trimmings from Velvet Elvis.
Freshly prepared and cooked to order on the char grill, the burgers are served on a toasted bun with coleslaw, lettuce, red onion, beef tomato and hand-cut chips.
Choose from any of the following four varieties: ½ pound beef burger; Cajun chicken, chicken breast or spicy bean.
Toppings such as cheese, Ayrshire bacon or salsa can all be added for £1 each.
