Latest Restaurant Review:Reds True Barbecue, Manchester City Centre

"Wow that was some meat feast! My folks took me for my birthday. I had ribs to start and then an awesome burger with a donut in it! A great milkshake in a cool retro milk bottle. I even ordered one of their t-shirts. Reds True Barbecue is my current favourite burger/meat American style venue!"
