Red’s True Barbecue, Nottingham

In early March we visited Red’s True Barbecue with a group of friends. For Keith and I it was our second time in quite a few years since it had opened. We went on a Saturday which as you can imagine required quite a long waiting time as its quite a popular and busy place but for some reason did not allow us to reserve a table. However luckily they have a system in place that allows customers to go away for a while and get a notification when their table is ready.

The first time we visited Red’s the service wasn’t great and the food was only sub-par.

This time however I’m glad to report its improved since our first visit all that time ago.

Keith and I both ordered burgers as did the rest of our party. He had the Donut Burger whereas I had a single Classic Bacon Cheeseburger. The others had the Juicy Lucifer.

Classic Bacon Cheeseburger – Available as a single or double patty. Includes tomato, onion, pickles and lettuce. (£8.95/£10.95)
The Donut Burger – Two patties, melted cheese, smoked peppered bacon, crispy onions and Dirty sauce. All between two sweet glazed donuts. Served with frickles. (£12.95)

Service was prompt and polite. The burgers and fries were delicious and have definitely improved since our last visit! I’m told that the donuts instead of buns was a strange but interesting twist to a burger. It works though strangely enough!

Overall I’ve got no complaints about Red’s. There are other restaurants that do similar things so its never really my first choice of a dinner venue. However it’ll do if you ever wanted a meal purely meat based. So I’m rating this 3 simply because it doesn’t really stand out as a restaurant I MUST go to.
