Feeding London’s current appetite for all-American BBQ feasts and Wild West shenanigans, this Hoxton hangout aims to be as authentic as they come. The dining room sets the scene, with
cracked-leather banquettes, overhead fans, rodeo trappings and hunting paraphernalia on the walls adding to the log-cabin vibe. But it’s the food that sells the concept: mighty slabs of quality
meat are rubbed with barbecue spices then cooked slowly in a hickory-burning smoker imported from the States. Otherwise, the hot chicken wings come highly recommended, blackened salmon brings two
juicy fillets, and the menu also touts pimped-up burgers with names like ‘the devastator' – plus ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, comforting sides and salads. Wash it all down with bottled US beers,
and save room for desserts such as ice cream sundaes or homemade apple pie. Service gets top marks for friendliness.
Dozo opened a new branch in the heart of Soho; this restaurant is I think my new favourite place to have Japanese food in Soho...

At first glance Hoxton Square is a quite unremarkable place, just like any other square anywhere in this part of town. It's not even pretty in the way that maybe Primrose Hill is; it has a slight lingering whiff of the down and out it used to be before it became famous.It still comes with a huge amount of hype, the place to be if you're hip and edgy, if you're one of the cool kids. The reality is probably that the really cool kids have moved on in the general direction of Hackney and Dalston but that said it still has a great vibe and is now a slightly awkward mix of tourists, hipsters and city suits.You need to walk...

Have a break, have a kit kat. NO. Have a Devastator… If you’re up to the challenge. As part of ‘The Devastator Challenge’, the waiter will instruct you to ‘eat an 8 inch tall burger, fries and a milkshake within 10 minutes‘ to win the respect of your onlookers but most importantly get the meal for free. Failure carries a £30+ fine! He took one look at us and strongly discouraged us to even think about it, we thanked him for being an honest man and his wisdom for holding no boundaries.Many have attempted but only a few succeeded, all of them being men and apparently the fastest completion...

We’re serious barbecue fans, so it’s probably an understatement to say that we were excited at the prospect of putting Red Dog Saloon’s “authentic American BBQ” to the test.The initial signs were very good. They even hold Man V Food style eating challenges and have a burger called The Devastator (which contains three 6oz patties, 200g pulled pork & 6 rashers of bacon). However, if you look Red Dog up online, you’ll see that it’s attracted some very mixed reviews since opening its doors in July 2011. The only true test though, is to see for yourself...

Red Dog Saloon has terrible reviews. Even easier-to-please-than-a-retriever Time Out only offered it two stars. But they must be doing something right, because it's constantly spilling out onto the streets, despite the Byron that opened opposite late last year, and I was determined to find out what.Jay Rayner had a nightmare there - involving raw chicken wings and reheated ribs - but the thing that really angered him was that the owners have never even been to America. It's shocking of course, but I'm not sure that matters in the end. None of its customers have either. Being on Hoxton Square, on a Wednesday...
