This joint is definitely a city go-to, not just because of its amazing burgers, but also because of its famous clientele; in 2018, comedian Kevin Hart put in a large order which was zipped off to the Hydro. As if that wasn’t enough, just a month later, country music superstar Shania Twain visited the West Regent Street in person when she brought her tour to Glasgow.
Personally, our favourite one here is definitely the salt ‘n’ chilli buttermilk fried chicken burger that comes with everyone’s favourite salt ‘n’ chilli seasoning and Chinese-style curry sauce - bliss!
