Family-run Bar-B-Q restaurant brand Red Dog Saloon, have continued their expansion plans with their first venture in the North.
The company’s fifth American restaurant will open in May on Bold Street, Liverpool following a £1.2 million investment.
Already renowned in London for its fat ribs, buffalo chicken wings, hickory smoked pulled pork and burgers, the company has launched restaurants in Nottingham and Southampton within the past 18 months.
Owner, Tom Brookes, said: “It has been an incredibly exciting year for Red Dog Saloon and Liverpool was the perfect choice for our first foray into the North.
“As an incredible powerhouse for companies, the region offers such an exciting platform to continue growing our brand.
“After a nationwide search for suitable locations, Liverpool was chosen as it is a fun, energetic city with a thriving independent scene that perfectly reflects Red Dog Saloon’s personality.”
Launched in 2011, Red Dog Saloon prides itself on the quality and provenance of its food, with no binders or fillers in its burgers.
The brand only uses the best meat, flavoured with its special rub and cooked low ‘n slow for 18 hours in smokers imported from Oklahoma.
The restaurant will open with a brand new menu, which will also feature an extensive selection of cocktails, bottled beers, tequila and bourbon, a bottomless brunch menu and belly-busting food challenges.
“We feel we offer something really different to other Bar-B-Q restaurants in the city,” added Chad Crooks, Operations Director. “This is a family-run business and we are passionate about the food we serve and the fun, unpretentious party atmosphere we create for our customers.
“Our chefs use original cooking techniques that have been handed down over years, so we really do provide real deal American Bar-B-Q.
“We can’t wait for to join Liverpool’s fantastic bar and restaurant scene and see what the city, and the North as a whole, thinks of Red Dog Saloon.”
