SquareMeal Review of
Red Dog Saloon
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.
