Donut Burger?!

Morning lovelies,

This post is not for the faint hearted, calorie baulking, of you out there - RUN!

Red's True BBQ is at the very top of Call lane, next to The Corn Exchange, in Leeds. It specialises in BBQ food, and my God it is GLORIOUS! 

I have wanted to go to Red's for a really long time, but the pricing has meant that I've had to stay away. Realistically, it's not that expensive, no more so than a steak restaurant would be, but since I was on a student budget, I just didn't have the spare cash floating about. 

The atmosphere is very relaxed, and I'm not going to lie, it really is quite smokey from the grills, but not in an eye-watering, cough inducing manner. It really just adds to the authenticity of the place. Don't dress up, my advice is keep it casual, and wear something loose!!

 Choose from a variety of BBQ/Hot sauces, I really recommend the second and third from the left.

Meet Red's Ultimate Milkshake, Pecan Apple Pie and fudge blended together - absolute heaven.

The Donut burger, and yes, that really is a donut on the top. This is the single most amazing thing I have ever eaten in my life, I cannot tell you how incredible it was! The sweet potato fries and fried gherkins were also to die for!

This is an incredible place to get together with friends; it's a great casual and friendly atmosphere, with amazing food that's such a good talking point. Aim for lunch there, as you can't make reservations so the dinner time queue can be lengthy. I also think the obvious thing to say here, is that it's not the most Vegetarian friendly place out there! 

If you're in or near Leeds, give this place a shot, I dare you!
