It's had queues 'round the block since it opened in December 2012, and now, Glasgow's most famous takeaway is branching out with its very own restaurant and bar. Buddy's BBQ and Burgers will still dish up the same famed burgers and house-smoked favourites that have drawn hoards to its tiny Shawlands shopfront. But this time the restaurant will come with a fully licensed bar attached and room for up to 100 people to park up and enjoy the fare. 

The bar will serve up what Buddy's describe as Glasgow's best selection of American craft beers, alongside an extended menu of classic barbecue dishes and Southern soul food. The interior, like the food, is an ode to America, with a 1950s roadside diner theme; think red leather booths and brick walls and old movie theatre signage. Our very own slice of Americana culture, right in the heart of Glasgow's Southside. One of the most anticipated new openings this year in Glasgow. 

Please note - until Christmas 2013, Buddy's is BYOB with its licence pending.

Terrible service and food. They had no bananas left for a milkshake. They had no grilled chicken left. I wasn't even offered an alternative, the staff just dumped the menu in front of me to pick something else. How could they run out of this at 5 o'clock? I ordered a burger which had no sauce or cheese on it - it was very dry. There was no salt n pepper on the table, I had to go and find it myself. We weren't offered any mayonnaise or sauces. I had to ask for this and was charged for it. Staff was too busy talking amongst themselves to bother checking the customer was happy. We would've been cheaper and better off going somewhere else. Certainly won't be recommending this place to anyone.

The quality has really slipped in Buddy's. The original kitchen team no longer work there apparently and you can real tell in the quality of the food. ALSO was recently in for lunch since even with the reduction in quality a £1 taco is good but they weren't open despite it being during their published opening hours. Disappointing.

YEEEEEESSSSSS!!!! So excited for this, no more long queues, well, hopefully! Though the pulled pork or western burger is always worth the wait!
