The ‘Bad Boy Dog’ loaded with Caramelised Onions, BBQ pulled pork & coleslaw is the largest of their selection of hot dogs.

All Star Lanes, Deansgate
Bowling alleys have a reputation for sticky carpets and bad hotdogs and poor décor. All Star Lanes have padded out their Manchester location in homage to the archetypal 50’s bowling alley with the obligitory dining booths and the menu is filled with all things Americana. . We recommend the ‘King Pin Burger’ with ‘Cured Treacle Bacon’ and of course bowling!

Red’s True Barbeque, Manchester
On a mission to educate the people of Britain about ‘True Barbeque’, Red’s takes a unique approach to American barbeque. From cured meats to glazes and signature seasonings finished over the pit, Highlights on the menu include the ‘Memphis Dry St Louis Ribs’ with a side of ‘Mac ‘n’ Cheese’.
22 Lloyd Street, Albert Square, M2 5WA 0161 8209140
Southern 11, Spinningfields
While its sister restaurant Neighbourhood is based on the New York style eateries, Southern 11 is very much a southern style barbeque restaurant. In fact it derives its name from the 11 southern US states which inspire much of the menu.

Rookwood Bar & ‘Cue
Rookwood Bar prides itself on serving locally sourced meat from North West family butchers, ‘Albert Matthews’.
