There’s four flavours of margs available: classic, mango, strawberry, blueberry, served frozen with Olmeca Altos Plata tequila, Mezcal, Cointreau and fresh lime or creamy concoctions like the ‘That’s Just Peachy’ cocktail: a mixture of Jack Daniels apple, purรฉed peach, peach liqueur, lemon and egg whites.

Those looking for an Instagram-friendly drink find their new favourite in the Cotton Candy: a cocktail of Beefeater and Cointreau shaken with lemon juice and poured over a huge ball of candyfloss, which dissolves into the drink as you pour your cocktail into the glass- it’s a showstopper.

Elsewhere on the menu, you’ll find a range of US Craft Import beers like Brooklyn Lager and Voodoo Ranger Hazy IPA, as well as huge freshly-made milkshakes with flavours like Biscoff, triple chocolate and Cosmic Unicorn (strawberry and white chocolate).

Sink a few drinks between the best of American dining. Featured on the menu is everything from nachos to southern fried chicken, corn dogs to burgers: even the fries have been inspired by the US and come as a cheesy chilli variation.

The menu has been hand-curated over a number of years by the owners, inspired by their American roadtrips. Perfectly slow-cooked meats come on the menu as endless combos, like the Texas Style Beef Dip Sub, a slow-smoked beef brisket hand-carved to order and packed in a sub with onions, sweet peppers, mustard, pickle, cheese andTexas gravy for dipping.

Although there’s plenty of vegetarian options on the menu, but this really is a meat-lovers menu.

Three toasted buns, two prime-beef patties, a Southern fried chicken fillet, streaky bacon, bourbon-glazed brisket, a hash brown and two slices of American style cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles and Hickoryโ€™s burger sauce makes up the ‘Go Big or Go Home Burger’, and all the other burgers are similarly stacked with drool-worthy meats and sauces.
