TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR HEATED & COVERED TERRACE FOR GROUPS FROM MULTIPLE HOUSEHOLDS

Red Dog Saloon is an Austin, TX Barbecue restaurant, serving 18-hour roast ribs, brisket, aged chuck steak burgers and much more, all best enjoyed with tasty cocktails or milkshakes.
Barbecue grew up in the South of the USA where cooks learned to slow roast cuts of meat over fire pits to make them tender. Exposure to the smoke of the smoldering wood added a distinctive smoky and juicy taste to the meat. Our award-winning smokers have been imported from the USA and are built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We use the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavor, and the meat stays in the smoker for up to 18 hours.

    Was really good food nice atmosphere the only bad thing I can say is because it was busy I got the feeling that they wanted you in and out as quick as possible but overall really good experience.

    We were gifted a voucher and after reading recent reviews were in two minds whether to bother making the trip but we are so glad we did. From start to finish, I cannot fault anything. Our vouchers included 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides and 2 drinks. The menu is a bit tricky to get your head around but our waitress Tasha was so patient with us, explaining the different dishes, what we could get for our voucher and checking with the manager when she was unsure as she had only been there 2 weeks. I chose the BBQ wings for my starter and my husband went for the ribs. Both were cooked perfectly with very tasty sauces. For mains, I chose the 3 pieces of chicken and my husband went for the chicken burger. Again, both were cooked perfectly, very tender and tasty. We had a side of brisket mac and cheese and the slow cooked greens. We ended up taking 2 pieces of the chicken and the mac and cheese home as we just couldn't finish it so that was supper sorted! We both had a cocktail each included in the gift voucher and when I accidently knocked my shot of prosecco over, they very generously replaced it even though it was my fault. The place was buzzing, every table was taken and people were even eating at the bar. We were so glad we made up our own minds in the end and chose to ignore the negative reviews. Well done Red Dog and especially Tasha who was an absolute star.

    Food was ok but the £14 for a burger without sides it's ridiculous. 3 people ordered it in our group and there wasn't even an offer to order some sides from our server. There is better valued higher quality BBQ food in Southampton, so I'll skip this if I were you

    Oh WOW!! We were "greeted and seated" in no time at all. We sat discussing the menu for ages - no one could make their minds up, there are so many nice things on there. Our server was so understanding and returned multiple times to give us a chance to choose. The food was Great - really tasty. The service was snappy and prompt. I haven't been out for a while, but I know I will be returning there again - it was great.

    Best burger I've had in a long time, top quality patties, juicy and cooked to perfection-slightly pink with a great flavour, cheese and sauces bang on, every bite was moorish. Mac n cheese was a delight, smoky cheese sauce with a BBQ topping, fries are banging, cocktail are decent scratch made.

    Always great food, nice atmosphere and wide selection of food and drinks. The only negative is the 10% gratuity automatically added to the bill. I don't think this is acceptable.

    Honestly cannot tell you what I payed £63 for!!! I ordered a single burger and a chicken strips platter and was surprised that for the (what I thought average price for a burger meal or chicken strips meal) came without fries or something!!! The chicken strips were meant to be ‘hot’ there was no spice whatsoever and they were just pure grease. Four cokes came to around £20 at £4.75 each!!!! Extortionate. Desert was mediocre and messy, the plates were covered in syrup and so when we left, we were also covered in syrup. Honestly, should’ve just gone to hickories and I’d probably have been charged less for much better food. Would never go again. Also, if you’re gonna serve burgers on their own, double check with customers that they know no fries come with it.

    We booked Red Dog Saloon for my son's 13th birthday. We were able to get to our table earlier which was great and when we experienced a problem with the table the staff were happy for us to move. We found the menu a little confusing but the waitress was very helpful. Unfortunately the food let the whole experience down as when your paying the prices red dog charges you would expect it to be much better. My husband ordered brisket and it was quite dry which was ashame at over £8 for two slices. We were told my son's burger was going to be medium rare and it was more like well done. We ordered the guerilla fries and we were expecting caramelised onions and they were soggy and with the cheese the fries become and soggy mess. Also with paying £12 for both mine and my son's burgers I would have expected some other garnish on the plate like coleslaw or pickles as this is what we would have experienced before with Red Dog. We paid over £86 for our meal and you even put on 10% service charge which I didn't notice until after we left as we were going to watch a show. It should be a choice of the customer in this day and age that they give a tip. We didn't say anything as didn't have the time to waste having food recooked. I also put a request on my booking whether my son could be sung happy birthday too but I wasn't told this request couldn't be carried out but it didn't happen. I'm not sure what happened but it definitely isn't the same you just seem to be after people's money.

    The service last night was very slow. The waiters/waitresses were polite just slow bearing in mind it was exteremly quiet when we were there. My food was brought out on another persons tray so they just brought over a small plate and put my brisket on it, therefore i didnt get everything else that should have been with it. We have been to red dog a few times and have always enjoyed our visits but this was terrible. Very disappointed

    Food was good quality however there were no kids menus available plus my son’s chicken strips were chewy and over cooked to the point where he couldn’t eat them. Burgers for an adults meal don’t come with fries so it makes the meal expensive.

    Had a reservation for 7pm, we arrived at 6:50pm but were directed to the bar where we waited until 7:25 to be seated. The man seating people was seating people who had come through the door seemingly without reservations, and we were not the only couple having this experience as had been sat at the bar with another couple who had arrived before us and waited the same amount of time. Once seated the service was relatively fast but we don’t feel based on this experience that it was in any way worth the large amount of money we paid (£56 for 2 burgers, 2 portions of fries and 3 drinks) and the food was nothing extraordinary to be paying £14+ for an individual burger. Would love my money back!

    We love Red Dog, and have eaten in Southampton lots, however 10 of us ate there Friday for my husbands 50th. The service was shocking, drinks took forever and we’re invariably wrong, we had to ask about 5 times for water. The burgers looked like they’d been shoved together by a 6 year old, two that were supposed to be the same, you’d have never have guessed as they were totally different sizes and amounts of meat. My Philly cheeseburger was late (was told Philly fries got ordered instead, fair enough mistakes happen) when it did come, it was clearly the dregs of what was left over, I’d asked for medium rare, it was well over cooked, and no sign of any cheese whatsoever… Didn’t feel that we could complain/mention it at the time as we were being treated to the meal by friends. A real disappointment. 😔

    The staff were great, warm, friendly and couldn't do enough to help...all with a smile. We we in a rush and had 45 minutes to eat before a show, which we managed. We ordered pulled pork with brisket fries and double cheeseburger with bacon and a side of philly fries. Everything was delicious and full of flavour. Would highly recommend!

    Extremely short staffed, service was unwelcoming, the gentleman that served us did not appear to know what he was doing, everyone was rushing around. The chef kept coming out to look for someone to serve the food. The only really friendly person was the lovely lady who asked us if we would like another drink and issue us with our bill, she had a smile on her face and a friendly approach even though she too seemed rushed off her feet. Food was salty, the burgers seemed a hit though.

    Food was nice and well presented although served on a small plate so not a huge portion. Horrified to find out afterwards that the chips were not included in the price for the burger. We were charged and extra £4.50 each. Paid £66.00 for 3 x burgers and 3 x drinks. Probably won't go again

    Burger & fries were delicious , and very enjoyable, we got moved as there was a table of 15 due so don’t understand why we were allowed to sit at the table , luckily we had finished eating and just had drinks to finish, everyone was really polite and apologetic. Bit over priced for just burger & fries, fries are sold separately at a cost of an extra 4.50 🤷‍♀️ .

    The male Waiter got our order completely wrong.Brought an additional burger,forgot the mozzarella sticks,they even poured us jack daniles whiskey instead of the preferred whiskey we asked & paid for! - not to mention the burger tasted like it had all been heated in the microwaved. It was my favourite place when it opened,I doubt I’ll return :(
