BBQ Restaurants Dublin - Our New Obsession!

BBQ Restaurants Dublin - Our New Obsession!

It looks like Dublin has become obsessed with BBQ food. It went from only one spot, the Aussie BBQ, to almost too many to choose from. We even have a yearly BBQ festival now for the BBQ food obsessed. So where can you find the meatiest ribs, juiciest burgers and most delectable pulled pork? Have a look of at this list of Dublin’s BBQ restaurants, drooling is allowed!

Bison Bar

Without a doubt my favourite place for BBQ food in the city. Bison Bar on Wellington Quay is a whiskey bar where you can get the tastiest slow roasted meat in the city. With its saloon looking décor, it certainly puts you in the mood for a glass of whiskey and succulent meatiness. Brisket, pulled pork, sausage, chicken or ribs: choose a plate of meat or a combo that comes with two sides and things get dirty!

Pitt Bros

Pitt Bros opened after Bison Bar in the spot-on central location that is Georges Street. The menu is very similar and you will find the same meat options while they have a larger choice of sides, which includes options like mac and cheese or bone marrow mash. The bun meals are great value especially the pulled pork and brisket ones, served with a side for €11.50. Plus you’ll be happy to know that free ice-cream is available for all at Pitt bros.

My Meat Wagon

For people based on the Northside of the Liffey, My Meat Wagon would be the go-to eatery in case of BBQ cravings. The kitchen has been pimped to look like a food truck parked inside the restaurant hence the name. The interior is quirky, the drinks served in jam jars, the music is loud and the food hits the spot. Decide between meat in a box, burger or served on a board and get sides to go with it (your fries will be in the cutest mini trolley).

Now, Asador would be the poshest option on the list, it’s a swanky looking modern barbecue restaurant.  Starters feature maple smoked BBQ ribs, chicken wings and even the raw meat beef tartar. For main courses, there are different cuts of beef (fillet, sirloin, côte de boeuf for 2), barbecued fish and several other types of meat. If you’re two people, definitely go for the BBQ seafood or BBQ meat platter to taste of a bit of everything.
