“Just Ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stumbled on this place next to the market place. All you can eat ribs for 18.5 Euros. At least here they offer you a choice of fries, croquettes or jacket potatoes. They found us a table for two despite no reservation. Service was pleasant albeit a little slow to begin with. However, they came around with extra ribs without prompting. Overall I enjoyed the ribs and the beer was well priced.

“Meh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Slow service, the spareribs themselves are average, the price is a bit higher than most spareribs i know in Belgium, the place does not look interesting (the pictures speak for themselves).

I am not going back. To be honest, this is the worst sparerib restaurant i went in my life. (In total i have visited 5 spareribrestaurants.

“If you want to have ribs that's the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The best place to have ribs in Leuven. It's a cozy place you can spend time with friends and enjoy your ribs. A big advantage is that you don't need to book in advance.

“ok, but don't expect too much”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We went on a saturday eve ( fully packed with some big groups ) and there was a mix up with our reservation but that was dealt with swiftly.
We had a table with a view on the open kitchen where the friendly staff was working very hard.
The whole restaurant has the feel of a small factory, not much personal service and the attendance of the waiters ( when we left and said goodbye , no one answered back ) was rather offstandish. The guy in charge ( boss ) was rather unrespecful towards his staff ( not something you want to experience as a customer, felt sorry for the guys !)
Ribs ( only one choice of marinade on the menu ) were ok but I've eaten much better in Belgium and for less the price than here in Leuven. 18,50 € for a rack of ribs is quite steep.
Choice of beers was rather limited , could have been better. There are so many beers that can be paired beautifully with all kind of different meats.

“Very slow service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We pre-booked well in advance with all orders made - but it seems they forgot everything, and it was - no joke - probably 2 hours before we saw our food. Some ordered extras after but never saw anything. Seems to be in a bustling location, which has probably trapped some - but you'd be best off missing this one.
