“Good food, near train station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We ate at 'De Bengel' a few times, most often when we were stuck in Eindhoven due to the dutch railroads messing up again. It's near the train station and has good food. Can be a bit busy at times, especially since it appears that each time we were there there also were large groups in the restaurant. When the weather is nice, you can even sit outside and enjoy a nice cool drink or some food.

“Best ribs in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

The is THE place to go if you like spare ribs. Better than in other parts of the world (and I keep trying and comparing ....). Service is fast compared to other restaurants in The Netherlands. Other food is good too, considering this is not a michelin star restaurant, but a place for good, simple, inexpensive food. Prices are low compared to other restaurants in town.

“Quick and a lot...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The food in this place was quite okay but nothing really special. It's more something you go to with a larger group of people to eat....

“Best rib in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Ok this only my opinion, but many of friends agree. The staff and service is the best in Eindhoven. They go out of their way to ensure your excperience is a good one. The steaks and hamburgers are very very good too. If seafood is your dish of choice try the seafood stew. yummy!!

“love the spareribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Best ribs in town! Bengel Burger is also very good, cajun fries are Jummm! But it's not a 100% success, some visits are kinda disappointing compared to other visits, even when same dishes are ordered. But the friendly crew and good rates are worth it.
