Friday Foodie Fives – 5 Meat Crazy Restaurants

This week saw the great and good of the Glasgow Food Scene celebrate Nation Burger Day on Wednesday, as homage to the great burger I was going to do my Foodie Fives on burgers but the truth of the matter is only occasionally will I actually order a burger. Sure there are times that I take a taste for one, but more often that not I won’t go out to try burgers in restaurants. In light of this I decided to change up my list to include the best places in Glasgow to get your meat on. Here are my top picks to satisfy your meat cravings…

Alston Bar & Beef steak

My top pick for the best steak in Glasgow has to be the reasonably newly opened Alston Bar and Gin. I have been here now a few times and thesteaks are completely sensational. One night when Mr Geek and myself were feeling particularly flush we even went nuts and ordered the 35 day dry-aged Porterhouse, I have to tell you it was the best steak I have ever eaten. This is a meat eaters paradise which a whole range for gorgeous steaks on offer for you to choose from.

Bread Meats Bread


For burgers I am sure by now you all know where I consider the best burger in Glasgow – Bread Meats Bread. There burgers are flavoursome and always incredibly juicy and scrumptious. They do a range of delicious options to add to your burger including my favourite, the incredibly tasty 12 hour smoked in-house brisket. It’s fast, cheap and tasty – whats not to like?

The Butchershop Bar & Grill

If you are looking for a tasty steak then I would highly recommend the wonderful Butchershop Bar and Grill, where you can chow down on a mouth-watering T-Bone which will be cooked to succulent perfection. On offer is a brilliant array of steaks including a Côte de boeuf, a Chateaubriand and a veal t-bone if you fancied something a little different. Definitely one of my favourite steak restaurants in Glasgow and worth a visit anytime.

Burgers and Lebowskis

How could I mention meats in Glasgow without mentioning the insanely good burgers at Lebowskis. These guys make a mean burger and the range of additional topping is fantastic. They absolutely win the award for the tallest burger in Glasgow – these guys stack ’em high which I love, although if you add tons of toppings like me you will definitely need to eat it with a fork and knife. If you are looking for a tip on topping my favourite combo is a beef patty, smoked applewood cheese, smoked bacon, Stornoway black pudding and the smokey mayo…my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Steak - Butchershop

Included in my meaty favourites in the city  is the steaks available at Grill on the Corner at 29. This is they only place where I have ever eaten Wagyu beef and it was sensational, an acquired taste as it is quite aromatic but I adored it. They have a wonderful range of steak available which have always been cooked really beautifully whenever I have dinner here. Also worth a mention is the Wagyu beef burger which I have never tried but is incredibly tempting – perhaps on my next visit 🙂
