Every time I walked past Ribs & Burgers I thought to myself, damn, I keep meaning to go there but I've just eaten. I just haven't managed to get in until now.
By the time we reached the front counter, we knew what we wanted to order. I was keen to have the 'Spare Pork Ribs: smokey BBQ sauce' ($28.50) and Mr. T wanted the 'Old School Cheese Burger' ($10.50). We decided to order a portion of 'Our Famous Chips' ($6) and a portion of onion rings ($6), as well as two drinks.
We took a seat indoors as it was quite a chilly evening and we did not have to wait very long until our food was served. I have heard rave reviews about the ribs from Ribs and Burgers and read many reviews to say that the ribs definitely were better than the burgers. Was it true? Yes it was!
I couldn't eat the ribs quickly enough. The meat was falling off the bones and I was very reluctant to share any of them with Mr. T as he tried to steal a few from my plate. The sauce that coated the ribs was sticky and sweet but it kept the ribs soft and tender and extremely juicy. They were absolutely delicious. If you ever had a thought to go to Ribs & Burgers, stop procrastinating and just go, it really is worth it for the ribs alone.
Mr. T's initial idea was that we would share a little of each dish however his burger arrived with lots of salad and as I'm not a fan, he ate most of it. He enjoyed the burger, he said that the bun was fresh, the salad was fresh, and the burger itself was quite moist and juicy; exactly what you want from a burger.
The onion rings were a little unusual as I had never seen onion rings like these. The rings themselves were not thick, they were quite thin and heavily battered. There was not much of a taste of the onions but they were crunchy and I still enjoyed them for what they were. The fries were quite a large portion also. They were cooked well and crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, exactly what you would ask for.
