1) Murray’s New Orleans 

Key ServiceMarinated smoked spare ribs
AddressB6 Bonifacio High Street, Taguig, Philippines
Phone0945 122 9796
Operating HoursMonday 11:00 AM – 12:00 AM
Tuesday 11:00 AM – 12:00 AM

Saturday11:00 AM – 2:00 AM

Murray’s is known for its traditional Cajun dishes, but their ribs deserve special recognition. Marinated in a dry rub and smoked over six hours before grilling, these plump pieces of meat are charred to perfection with the perfect hint of smoky flavor complemented by a sweet-tangy sauce that doesn’t overpower the taste. To top it off, heartier eaters will love their generous serving sizes!

Key Differentiators:

  • Well-seasoned spare ribs
  • Juicy meat
  • With sweet and tangy sauce

Customer’s Review:

The food was great, especially the ribs and the pork belly. They had free food for kids (we got the fish and chips, which was literally a piece of fish and a bunch of dries) due to cross-ordering. Rice was also generously served (but I would’ve preferred mashed potatoes), and their staff was friendly!

Phone0906 244 2996

Enjoy the delectable flavor of Southern cooking with these best-selling ribs. Each rack is meticulously slow-cooked in a smoker to ensure that each bite has an unforgettable smoky essence and tenderness. And to add one more delicious layer, they are then brushed twice with their mouth-watering barbecue sauce for maximum satisfaction! Once you take your first forkful, the succulent meat will effortlessly fall away from its bone – so don’t forget utensils!

Key Differentiators:

  • Southern-style American cooking
  • Basted with barbeque sauce
  • Tender and juicy meat

Customer’s Review:

There’s something about Roadhouse that screams comfort food and nostalgia. They’re well known for their ribs, steaks, and bar selection but we aren’t heavy meat eaters and we don’t drink.

Rib shack is a personal favorite because of its good affordable ribs and quality customer service. The underdog of their menu is the pulled pork nachos. The bar staff also makes good mixers. Oh, and they take credit!
