Red Sauce Revolution @ Frankie and Benny's* // Food

Tuesday, 11 August 2015 2 comments


It's no secret, I love food. Especially Italian. So it's no surprise that when one of the biggest high street Italian chains Frankie & Benny's contacted me last week, asking me to try their new Red Sauce revolution menu, I said yes.

The red Sauce revolution menu is a range just launched by Frankie & Benny's on the fourth of August which combines vibrant stateside flavours with Italian classics. The menu is quite large and there's definitely something in it for everyone.

I'll admit, I'd never actually been to Frankie and Benny's before. Despite there being a branch quite close by I'd never really paid it any attention. So an excuse to go was great. We went to the Glasgow Fort branch, which isn't my closest but is possibly on of the bigger ones close to me. I'd like to apologise for the photos in this post, Frankie & Benny's had tiny tables and dull lighting which made photographing my scran almost impossible!

Upon arrival I noticed that it was packed. Like seriously heaving with people - I know this is a good sign, but my god it was hectic. We hadn't booked before hand and only had to wait roughly fifteen minutes for a table, which isn't bad considering how packed it was. We ordered some drinks and out starters shortly after and the waiter seemed happy to help, but they took a good while to arrive at our table!



I ordered the potato skins as a starter, which isn't from the red sauce revolution menu sadly, but there wasn't anything I could see that really struck me on the starters menu. I got the Goats cheese and homemade bruchetta variation and they were to die for,  Emma got the chicken strips which came with the nicest red french dressing - it was so good, the plates were cleared.




A short while later our mains arrived. I went all out. I ordered the Manhattan Waffle burger which, I may add was totally out of this world and came with some gorgeous fries, which were served in the cutest paper bag - loved it! The barbeque sauce was pretty sweet which went so well with both the waffle and the burger and the buns! Don't get me started on the buns. Emma got the Cheese burger, which she also gave her compliments. By the end of our mains we were unbelievably full, but I insisted for the purpose of the review we MUST have a desert, so we decided to share one of the Red sauce revolution Cinnamon Waffle crunch.



Now, the Cinnamon Waffle crunch was insane. I can't put into words how the chewy texture of the waffle paired with the smooth ice-cream and toffee crumbs complimented each other. But they did. It was the perfect mixture of textures and flavours and I never expected it to be as good as it was. If I could recommend one course for today, it would have to be this. GET IT.



The food was great, in total it came to roughly £34 I'm sure. Which is great value for money considering we had three courses and unlimited drinks, and it's a place which I'd definitely recommend. The only issue we did face was serious waiting times for food which was annoying, but this is something which you come to expect of a popular restaurant!

Thanks to Frankie and Benny's for inviting us along to try the new menu!

Ps. I love learning Italian in the toilets!
