Using an in-house smoker to produce an authentic, rich barbecue taste, the team at Mighty Quinn’s aren’t joking when they say, “Your days of bad barbecue are over.”
The US-founded barbecue chain, which started out in New York, has several locations in America, as well as in Taiwan, the Philippines, and now two in Dubai – at The Dubai Mall, and at The Walk, JBR.
Both are at family-friendly locations, ideal for a pit-stop when hunger strikes on a day out with the gang.
We visit JBR, and the venue is spacious and stylish, with a smoky, woody smell that will make you super hungry.
Dishes can be a touch on the expensive side for the size of the serving, though there’s good variety. We opt for the Mighty Trio, and the succulent and slowly smoked beef brisket, chicken drumsticks and lamb ribs, all rich in barbecue flavours, present a glorious meaty feast.
Desserts don’t fare so well, although it’s the meat you’re really here for. A bread and butter pudding with s’mores isn’t the high point, but the sweetness of vanilla ice cream with roasted marshmallows is delightful. There are also a range of shakes for a treat.
If you fancy barbecued meat when you’re out with the family in JBR, this should be your prime destination.
Open daily 9am-midnight. Unlicensed. The Walk, JBR (04 429 8847).
The bottom line
Laid-back spot that’s top for a barbecue.
