Red Dog Saloon is Hoxton’s answer to the Wild Wild West! 

Red Dog Saloon is Hoxton’s answer to the Wild Wild West!

Words: Ray Cabby


The restaurant is buzzing! Situated in the corner of Hoxton Square, floods of people begin to gather outside. Already I begin to think that this must be one very popular restaurant, rarely seen in the East End of London. As we enter, we are greeted by the welcoming, energetic team and shown the way to our reserved booth.


The dining room sets the scene, with cracked-leather banquettes, loud American music, overhead fans turning lazily and pull-out lamps from the wall creating that mysterious, yet authentic atmosphere.


But it’s the food that sells the concept: slabs of food on heavy wooden plates 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 BBQ ribs. We literally had it all plus on top we decided to go for side dishes including Mac & Cheese, French Fries, and Onion Rings. Like real Americans, we washed it all down in true style with bottled US beer, ‘Brooklyn’. The food was superb, cooked to perfection and impossible to fault in any way.


Considering this was a very busy Friday evening, the Red Dog Saloon team shone under pressure and were very helpful; this visit couldn’t have gone any smoother. Very polite waiters, who have extensive knowledge of the menu are always there when you need them.


If you’re brave enough and have a stomach of steel, then try the Hot Wings Challenge (made with fresh Napa Viper chilies)…we say no more!






Travelling Foodies: A Guide To Eating Out In Vancouver

Deciding where to eat out in the Canadian city of Vancouver is like asking a child to choose their favourite sweet treat in a shop full of sweet treats; they’re all equally delicious in their own right and it’s much better to educate the taste buds than to stick to the same flavours (in my view, anyway).
