Ribs and Burgers have been on my list for ages. Dearest Ling has recommend it to me for a while now. Sadly I didn’t find the time to go in Melbourne but I was relieved to find out there was branches in Sydney as well. On the downside Ribs and burgers does not take bookings, going on a Friday night during peak hour time was so risky. But we decided to go ahead for the love of ribs and meat. Luckily, there was a few tables still available when we arrived about 7:15pm. At Ribs and burgers it’s similar to service at a bar/bistro, you order the food at the service counter then take a number and get a table. The restaurant is very family friendly and has outdoor seating if you prefer
I couldn’t make up my mind what to order but then I saw the Ribs and burgers combination meal. Done! I picked the pork ribs and chicken and a beef burger for the two burgers. With a serve of cabbage salad on the side. The chicken burger was really good it was juicy and the sauce with the burger really went well together. The beef burger I felt was a bit average nothing special at all. Upon first bite of the Pork ribs it was so tender and full of saucy goodness and I quickly gobbled up the next few ribs. But the awesome tender ribs did stop there. If you noticed on my picture above the pork ribs are split in half. The first rack I had was really good but the second rack was so dry. I wish it was more consistent.
Mr K orders the beef ribs and I noticed the portion is significantly smaller then the pork rib version. But it is a bit cheaper after all. I didn’t get to taste the beef ribs but Mr K gave us a big thumbs up.
Ms A orders the Feather steak. The steak came out looking like a slightly thicker minute steak that you can purchase from the supermarkets. Ms A wasn’t impressed with the steak and gave it a thumbs down. It didn’t have any flavour at all and Ms A was mopping up the sauces with the steaks.
As a rib lover I admit I always do compare everything back to Hurricanes. Is it better? Or is hurricanes better? Ribs and Burgers come close, I wasn’t happy with my second part of my ribs but comparing with the first rack that I had, it was really something! But in the end Hurricanes is still leading the ribs supremacy. Pricing wise Hurricanes full rack of ribs (pork) are more steeper in cost in comparison $44.9 vs $29.
So readers, do you have a favourite restaurant to go for ribs?
