The appropriately named Ribs & Burgers is ideally suited to the Queensland lifestyle and tastes. The food is no nonsense, fresh and delicious, with something for everyone – even vegetarians.

Inside Ribs & Burgers James Street

Diners can eat in at the James Street location with comfy booths and tables inside or tables and a bar in the alfresco area for those who love the 'sunshine' part of living in the sunshine state. Ribs & Burgers also provides takeaway food for those trying to squeeze a decent feed into their busy lives.

Some of the Cool Interior Design

Cutlery Kettle is so Hip

The cutlery and sauces come in groovy old fashioned kettles that would make hipsters swoon. Ribs & Burgers' décor is wrought iron, metal, and wood, with retro style lighting and vintage gadgets on display. The large chalkboard menu greets you as you enter from James Street to place your order at the counter before taking a seat.

The Counter and Kitchen

The staff are friendly and they don't smother you with interruptions like those at some other venues. The open kitchen allows you to observe the chefs in action from the right vantage point. The atmosphere feels alive and upbeat, with the music and bustling surrounds adding to the vibe.

The menu boasts ribs, burgers, chicken and steak, a kids menu, salads, chips and onion rings. Many meals are served on a board or in retro tin plates that add to the down-to-earth feeling of authenticity. But for me, the absolute best thing about Ribs & Burgers is their signature 'Pink Sauce'. I don't know what they put in it, but I think I am addicted! Luckily my mother taught me not to drink sauce right from the bottle or I could have created quite a stir during my last visit.
