There's a new BBQ joint in town! Smoke Barbecue Leeds has found home in the Merrion Centre, serving up delicious all-American authentic wood-smoked barbecue food inspired by the ethos of Texas dining: hospitality, passion and lots of meat! Starting with their first restaurant in Sheffield, they've now branched out to deliver their delicious food to a wider sphere of hungry diners in Yorkshire.
The restaurant's architects, Koldo & Co., have turned the shopping centre unit into a triumph of rustic yet modern interior design. Wooden panels, exposed light bulbs and bold graffiti all combine to create an environment that perfectly suits the food that's served.
With "put the fork down" emblazoned on the walls, dining takes on the most casual of forms at Smoke: eat with your fingers with no fear of judgement! The food itself is designed to be finger-licking good: they don't use gas in their cooking, at all. Instead, the focus is on wood-smoked meat that tastes amazing. Get in on the real Smoke Barbecue experience by ordering a plate: brisket, ribs and chops come spiced, seared and rubbed to perfection, all served with twice cooked chips. There are also burgers on offer, with bacon mac and cheese, pulled pork and philly cheese just a few of the featured ingredients, we assure you there'll be something that takes your fancy. Finally, there are delicious desserts and ice cream milkshakes available to round your meal off perfectly. There's also a very reasonably priced lunch menu available for weekdays, a great option for those taking a day trip to Leeds or looking to catch a quick lunch during a day of shopping. After dinner, take advantage of the well-priced cocktail menu, featuring a tasty rum punch and O'Hara's iced tea. In addition, beer buckets are only £12!
If you're looking for big, flavoursome food, you're browsing the right restaurant. Smoke Barbecue in Leeds is a welcome addition to the city's food scene, the perfect place for any meat-lover to sink their teeth in to.
