Square Meal Review of Red Dog Saloon ?

London’s current appetite for all-American barbecue feasts is as rampant as the Wild West, and this East End effort aims to be as authentic as they come. The dining room sets the scene, with cracked-leather banquettes, overhead fans turning lazily and hunting and rodeo paraphernalia on the walls. But it’s the food that sells the concept: slabs of quality cuts are rubbed with barbecue spices then cooked slowly in the kitchen’s hickory-and-mesquite-burning smoker imported from the States. Burgers, made from 100% chuck steak, also feature lavishly on the menu, as well as classics such as pulled pork and the more gimmicky chilli 'dawgs'. Wash it all down with bottled US beers, and save room for desserts such as ice cream sundaes or homemade apple pie

    Ruby in the City :: Red Dog Saloon

    Hoxton Square is dense with bars and eateries but I'm going to pick three of the best. The Red Dog Saloon has to be up there, why?, well I like it first up because its almost a one off, OK one is opening in Clapham sometime soon but Hoxton Square has started to get that creep of the chains. Byron is here which is great and you get a damn good burger in Byron whether it's here or in Bluewater and Bill's too, not knocking them but I don't want Hoxton Square to become everyplace for everyman...

    The List :: Red Dog Saloon

    Red Dog Saloon is an "Authentic American BBQ", housed in an attractive and well placed space on the corner Hoxton Square. We sat at the bar as there weren't any tables free, but it's arguably the best place to sit anyway as you always get great service from barstaff. We quickly munched our way through some tasty pulled pork buns with Magaritas and Schooners of Samuel Adams on the side. The award winning hickory smoked ribs also looked wonderful as they went past. For the brave and hungry, there is The Devastator Challenge...

    Over the Hype :: The Devastator

    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 time to beat was 4 minutes. Come on ladies, we have to step up to the plate in the name of equality...

    London Piggy :: Red Dog Saloon – Hoxton, Texas?

    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...
