“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Visited this establishment as it was highly rated as being child friendly and open till late. Arrived at 9.45pm - the restaurant was quiet - we were the only ones there. Hardly any staff on hand. Ordered the Buffalo Wings (7/10) and the Beef Fajitas (4.5/10). The food came out piping hot but portions of the condiments were tiny. My Son had the Beef Burger which he enjoyed - i took a bite out of it and it was above average (6/10). Took some time to get the attention of the service staff while we were there which was a little annoying, and the ones that did turn up had a tough time understanding English. Overall, it rate it as a miss.
P.S. If you decide to sit outside to the right of the bar, make sure they close the roof as the blossoming trees tend to shed their buds which conveniently add to your plate portions ! it took us quite a while to get a taxi back from this location.

“Bad service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

My second time here because we have to give a second chance to everyone. My mistake. I had a home delivery both times and both times I opted for a classic deluxe burger with french fries.
The first time they came with a wrong order (a plain hamburger), that did cost less than what i ordered and paid for (but the meat was good). I had a refund for the difference of cost, that is why I gave them a second chance, and the hamburger was good by the way.
The second time they took 1hr and a half for delivery and the food was completely cold and poor of quality. Cold french fries. I don't need to say more; neither for the cheeseburger with cold cheese and with meat hard as stone.
Home delivery requests a range of time, people knows it, but they are 500mt from my home and the first time they took only 30min to delivery.
Btw, is useless to say that there won't be a third time.

“Wednesday Buffet.......Just OK”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Arrived @ 7pm to an entirely empty restaurant & bar. After a few beers (San Migs @ 105b) we hit the BBQ buffet.

We enjoyed a selection of freshly grilled Ribs - Kebabs - Sausages (Thai style) & beef burgers.

Salads were limited with a very basic Ceaser & coleslaw available. Taco shells, beans & other related sauces were available.

Other than the burger/hot dog buns, no other breads were available as was the case with no potato variants.

Service was average - facility OK - Food was approx 500b per head.

Its unlikely we will return. The overall value equation is poor. There are some far better alternatives in BKK.

“Wednesday BBQ Buffet: not bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Been there for the first time about a week ago for the Wednesday BBQ Buffet: food was decent, but the place was almost empty..shame, because the place DOES look nice.
I would have liked to see a bigger diversity for the buffet: a few more side-dishes like bbqed corn, bread and more salads..and some more meat-fish items as well, like bbq chickenbreast and some prawns. Their burgers are grilled freshly for you..nice. The ribs were tender, not to fatty, but a bit heavy on the bbq-sauce flavor for me.
Not the best BBQ, but money-wise the Wednesday BBQ Buffet IS a nice deal.

“Excellent Ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

The St. Louis style ribs here were great! I ordered the half-slab and was very satisfied with the portion. The ribs were very meaty with little fat. Their house BBQ sauce was the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. However, the best part of the experience was the service. The manager Tony, came to our table to check on how we were doing and to make sure we were happy with the food. He was very personable and gave us some excellent tips on things to do during our stay in Bangkok.

Next time I'm in Bangkok, i will definitely return to The Great American Rib Company to try out the Buffalo Wing special. (24 wings with a free pitcher of Singha)
