About the restaurant
Pizzburg in Glasgow is an Italian restaurant that specialises in producing authentic, high-quality dishes packed full of flavour. Named after a portmanteau of two of the United Kingdom’s most favoured foods, pizza and burgers, this Sauchiehall Street eatery consistently satisfies the taste buds of meat lovers and vegetarians alike with its selection of culinary treats. All of the restaurant’s juicy burgers are made with 100% Aberdeen Angus beef, whilst veggies can happily tuck into mouth-watering wood-fired calzones. For those of you with a sweet tooth, Pizzburg’s menu features delicacies like carrot cake, a Belgian waffle sundae, and a classic banana split. Located just a stone’s throw away from the city’s Charing Cross Station, Pizzburg is also just a short stroll from the King’s Theatre Glasgow. A restaurant that tends to fill up quickly, particularly on the weekends, we recommend arriving at Pizzburg with a pre-arranged reservation.
Situated on Glasgow’s buzzing Sauchiehall Street, one of the city’s most vibrant shopping and business thoroughfares, Pizzburg is a restaurant that prides itself on embracing the gastronomic culture of Italy. Passionate when it comes to using the freshest olive oils, cheeses and herbs on the market, the talented kitchen staff at the family-run Pizzburg are masters at incorporating artisanal cooking techniques into their work. All of the pizza bases at Pizzburg are made with homemade dough, before being baked to perfection in the restaurant’s grand wood-fired oven. With a wide variety of pizzas available, we recommend trying the New York offering with spicy sausage, roasted mixed peppers, and sundried tomatoes.
As Pizzburg’s name suggests, the staff here also know a thing or two about burgers. As well as having the option to build your own, the menu also features a number of beef, chicken and vegetarian options. The ‘Full House’ cheeseburger with bacon, Parma ham, gherkins and BBQ sauce is a big hit with the local foodie community, as is the ‘Chick Chick Boom’ burger with chilli fried chicken breast, chipotle mayonnaise and jalapenos. A perfect spot to eat at either before or after stopping by Charing Cross Station or nearby Kelvingrove Park, Pizzburg’s convivial atmosphere means it truly is a delight to visit for a long lunch or delectable dinner. A specialist in not just one but two of the UK’s favourite foods, tables at Pizzburg tend to get snapped up quickly, so be sure to plan ahead and make a booking to avoid disappointment.
