Dirty Bones

American themed restaurant Dirty Bones are known for their top class mac ‘n’ cheese balls, fish tacos, and epic burgers.

But you’ll want to save room for one of their booze filled milkshakes. There’s Shadow which is filled with bourbon, the Banilla Ice, or the Butter Baby, made with butterscotch, vanilla ice-cream, milk, and Ketel One vodka.

There’s also shakes without alcohol including the Shadow Shake with double chocolate ice cream, Oreo and chocolate sauce. Yum.
