Eating Out in Glasgow - Find the Best BBQ
American barbecue is a trend that just keeps getting more popular in Glasgow. Get yourself round to some of these places for some top notch food that you can pretend you’ve cooked over an open fire. No BBQ recipes here, just the best Glasgow BBQ food around.
Near to Kelvingrove Park (handy for running across, grabbing a snack and then returning to bake in the sun some more), their food is also available inside Pivo Pivo on Waterloo Street. Oak-smoked tender meat with a mouth watering variety of dishes such as beef brisket, pulled pork, burgers, tacos and the latest thing – “poutine” (that’s cheese curds and gravy over fries - a Canadian dish). Delicious food, grab some and head to the park, or if it’s the usual Glasgow weather, you can sit in with a drink.

Dennistoun Bar B Que
Rough and ready like the deep south in the posters adorning the wall. This ex-kebab shop still has the kebab shop chic counters with the addition of some school tables and chairs. The price and service in Dennistoun is east-end. The brisket is one to drive over for and the burgers are good and you’re keeping a local butcher happy. No fancy wax paper or baskets here, just good grub (although the towering pulled pork looks like a work of art!)
585 Duke Street, Glasgow, G31 1PY (read more about Dennistoun in The Best Burgers Around)
Buddy's Bar and Grill
The one that started it all - well, the second one - it started out as a takeaway along the road on Skirving Street. Buddy’s have now progressed to a 60-seater restaurant. Even then there was still a wait for tables, however you won't be waiting long. A huge selection of ribs, burgers, pulled pork, as well as brisket and poutine on the menu.
677-681 Pollokshaws Road Glasgow G41 2AB
From Friday to Sunday during the summer, the grill is fired up in Cottiers and ready to go outside this gorgeous looking old church in the west-end. Running from noon until late in the evenings, there’s usually marinated chicken, lamb koftas, steaks as well as the usual burgers and sausages. There is an outdoor bar, so there’s no need to move inside if the weather is here.
93-95 Hyndland Street, G11 5PU
