American BBQ diner and grill at the bottom of Byres Road serving superior burgers, dogs, deli sandwiches and sides

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

All faux-authentic Americana memorabilia from retro Coca-Cola adverts to a fake taxidermied buffalo head, the unimaginatively catalogue-picked décor at this BBQ diner and grill belies the quality of the cooking. What’s going on in the kitchen proves far more compelling a reason to visit newcomer Meathook, which is based adjacent to the foot of Byres Road in the former premises of the Butterfly and the Pig and Pop-Up Pig. They don’t go in for starters as such, just finger-licking bites to get you going including spicy buffalo chicken wings and deep-fried dill pickles. A bit of pulled-porkery is par for the course, but Meathook do it much better than most, with tender strands of smoky pig meat loaded onto a soft brioche bun together with crunchy, tangy North Carolina slaw. The crispy French fries are a cut above, too. From the grill, go for the sourpuss lemon chicken and smoked bacon skewers with green beans and sweet tomato dip – a zesty, summery dish full of flavours. The hot aspect is mysteriously missing from the hot chocolate fudge sundae, but the chunky milk chocolate drops give it satisfying crunch.

  • High point: One bite of that chicken skewer and you will literally be hooked
  • Low point: £4.50 for small bottles and cans of American craft beers
  • Notable dish: Sourpuss lemon chicken and smoked bacon skewers with green beans and sweet tomato dip
  • Average price: £13 (lunch); £13 (dinner)

At Meathook we take great pride in our work, meticulously crafting the food we serve. Some would say it's a labour of love.

From the hand-crafted mustards, ketchup & relishes, the bespoke blend of 100% Scotch Beef we use in our classic burgers, to the unique flavours we create in our woodchip smoker with American southern-style BBQ rubs & spices. Everything is prepared with the utmost care & attention.
