Red Sauce Revolution | A New Menu For Frankie And Benny's*

Frankie and Benny's is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in, I mean what's not to love? They have the most adorable chic, vintage interior and the most delicious Italian food to go with that! I was invited along to Frankie and Benny's restaurant in Glasgow's Fort to try out their new Red Sauce Revolution menu, I jumped at the chance! Here is how it went.

Frankie and Benny's in Glasgow Fort is laid out the same as the Frankie and Bennie's I usually visit. It is decorated with sleek red, leather seating booths and green table tops. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant. It is very modern, yet it had a very vintage feel feel, and their music game is always on point. Any restaurant that plays Elvis tracks and music from the 50s-90s has my vote.

Arriving at Frankie and Benny's, seating was very fast. It took no more than a few minutes before we were seated and had our drinks ordered, I got a coke! The waitress was lovely, she was very attentive, and happily answered my questions about the new menu with a smile and was very friendly.

The Red Sauce Revolution menu is a collection of new dishes to provide a mix of Italian Anerican dishes. The restaurant have introduced a variety of new dishes and sauces to amp up their menu and provide amazing quality food.

When I first read the menu, I was very impressed before I even ordered anything. There was a huge variety to chose from that I felt wasn't previous on offer, I had such a hard time choosing what to get because I wanted to try 99% of it - I was very impressed.

For an appetiser I got Bruschetta Napoli. It was a delicious bread dish, with crisp ciabatta styled bread, creamy mozzarella cheese and torn bruschetta salad. It was good, the bread was very crispy and it had good flavour. The tomato and onion mix on top was tasty, and the flavour was very strong! The portion was a good size, in one portion you got three large pieces, which is a pretty good size for an appetiser!

For the main course, I ordered the New Yorker Wrap and a side of onion rings. It was absolutely amazing. I loved every bite of it. The wrap contained crispy chicken, a delcious and very fresh salad, BBQ sauce and cheese sauce. It was an amazing combination of flavours, the dish was a winner. The BBQ sauce was rich and tangy but not overpowering to the other flavours which is a bonus! The salad was fresh and crisp, and the chicken was perfectly crisp on the outside, yet so soft and juicy on the inside. It was delcious. I would definitely get it again. The dish came with a stack of potatoes skins and Benny's sauce on the side. The potato skins were lovely and soft and tasted amazing, and the sauce was perfect. It was a perfect consistencey for dipping my onion rings in and the portion size was amazing. The onion rings I ordered were crisp and had a little kick of spice to them which was a nice touch.

For dessert I got Eli's Peanut Butter Cheesecake. I love the vanilla cheesecake on offer from Frankie and Benny's, so this time I decided to try the peanut butter version. It was amazing. The cheesecake was creamy amd smooth, with a perfect hint of peanut butter to give amazing flavour, but not be overpowering to the other elements! The chocolate sauce drizzled over the top was amazing and so was the little peanuts on the top of the cheesecake. The dish came with cream, and a scoop of peanut butter flavoured ice cream which was a nice touch, seeing as it's a peanut butter dish. It was amazing, and the flavour was great considering peanut butter can be an overpowering flavour to work with.


While I was browsing the menu, I saw a section that made me grin like a toddler. I noticed that when they brought in the Red Sauce Reovolution menu, they started serving Snapple. I was so happy about this, as Snapple is one of my all time favourite American drinks, and I don't know of a single other restaurant that sells it, so I thought that was very cool and unique! When I was having dessert, I ordered myself a Snapple in the flavour 'Passionate Peach' which was iced tea, and it was amazing!

Frankie and Benny's is one of my favourite restaurants and are an amazing food chain, and this new menu shows that. They have really gone above and beyond to deliver this menu and to give the customers what they want. Their new menu is incredible, it has something for everyone and a wide range of foods that there are so many good dishes you can choose from. The waitress who served me gave me a booklet to take away, that contained all the information about the brand, and their new menu. It told us information about what was in their new sauces, which I think is a good touch for people who want to know what is in the sauces on their meal. It is little extra touches like that that show how much a restaurant really cares for its customers and values them as customers.

I really enjoyed my visit to Frankie an Benny's, they done well. Very well! It's a definite 10/10 from me, and I will be visiting again!
