70 Spital Street, Dartford, Greater London, DA1 2DT
The Hideout is a Dartford restaurant that has a fast food menu that's as big and bold as its appearance suggests. Fluttering US flags adorn the exterior, while its insides chime with a guitar-heavy all-American soundtrack. It's all designed to get diners in the mood for the US, Southern and Mexican-inspired dishes served within its walls.
Diners can play spot the icon while browsing The Hideout's menu, which names many of its dishes after famous American faces. The Clyde bacon burger is topped with American cheese, the Capone gets lashings of barbecue sauce, and Machine Gun Kelly christens the spicy chicken burger. Hot dogs, meanwhile, either come straight — with cheese or chilli — or Lansky-style — with bacon, pineapple and cheese.
Flicking to the Tex-Mex section of the Hideout's menu, diners will find cheese-packed quesadillas, burritos overflowing with meat, vegetables and sauces, and sizzling fajitas that can be packed with Quorn, fish or meat. Other Mexican dishes tick off the likes of the warming chilli con carne and cheesy enchiladas.
In fact, The Hideout's menu is mammoth, going on to encompass seven flavours of steak — from sirloin to teriyaki — a handful of popular pizzas, and a smattering of pasta dishes. The starters menu is just as varied, starting off with barbecue chicken wings and onion rings and finishing things up with Mexican fish cakes and deep-fried calamari.
For diners bringing along a pint-sized family member, The Hideout has a children's menu that aims to please picky eaters with its choice of chicken nuggets, miniature burgers, sausage and chips, and fish fingers.
