Proper mans food at Reds on Saturday. Took the family for a real meat treat, hubby loved it!
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!
It's nice to walk into one of the new breed of restaurants in Manchester, without being looked up and down to see if you are dressed "correctly" or have the relevant length beard. This is the second time I have been to Red's and it didn't disappoint. I wanted a quick lunch with colleagues and we had an hour to order, eat and pay. As soon as we sat down our drinks orders were taken, but being midday on a Friday, we all opted for sparkling water, although I did almost cave in to the great looking Craft Beers on offer (the water was lovely none the less and I was given an option of ice and lemon) We all ordered the Bacon Double Cheeseburger and I opted for the Sweet Potato fries over the skin on fries. After no more than 10 minutes, the food arrived and looked fantastic. Whilst my colleagues opted to tackle the mammoth burgers with cutlery, I decided to tackle mine the traditional way, only just getting my jaws round the double burger. The burgers were cooked to perfection, pink in the middle and succulent throughout, complemented by the bacon, cheese, lettuce and sauce. The brioche burger buns were excellent and did a great job of holding everything together. My sweet potato fries were really tasty and something I will definitely be ordering on my next visit. No time for pudding and the bill came within 2 minutes of asking. We were out within 50 minutes but at no time felt rushed. The staff were attentive, maybe a little too much at times, but I would not hesitate to recommend Red’s to the business diner, looking for great quality and value food.
