“Love the food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We ate here everyday when we visited Amsterdam, can't fault the food one bit. Great value for money.

Make sure you try the unlimited ribs!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Loved this place when visiting Amsterdam. We ate ribs and drank sol to our hearts content due to the great deals. The bar staff are lovely and friendly. Also watched a few football games here and it was fabulous. You could choose from about 20 TVs and they showed all games. Must go :)

“The ribs are a godsend.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

I usually travel on the cheap so this place is a godsend. The ribs are great - you're not going to get more food for 9.90 euros and despite the fact that it's high quantity, there seems to be no compromise on quality.
They also do bottles of Sol for a reasonable price (we didn't find anywhere cheaper for beer) and cheap shots too!

Admittedly it is very touristy and, past 8/9pm, can become quite busy. On one occasion we were told we had to buy more drinks if we wanted more ribs...surely a breach of their own unlimited policy...but we had consumed a ridiculous amount of ribs.

If you're looking for a post-coffeeshop feast or trying to save pennies, this place is probably your best bet.

“Go to the rib restaurants near by instead”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Ribs were nice, the rest of the food was bad. Cramped seating, rude staff and management, totaly not customer friendly. The ginger head managress doesn't treat customers right, nor her staff. There are few more rib restaurants just meters away, off the square. Don't fall into the that tourist trap!

“Good Ribs but too many Rules!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Too many Rules for a nice relaxing dinner. Every Person has to order a MAIN dish otherwise you are not allowed to sit down. There was a nice man who wanted to eat and drink but they wouldn't give him one of the 6 free tables because he was by himself???? We had to order drinks at the same time as food. We had a misunderstanding about a drink order and he wouldn't take it back because it was already typed into the register and he would have to pay the mistake with his salary?? I ordered ribs and wanted no chips, i said i pay the same, but he said he has to give me chips i can throw them out afterwards. Really? Lucky we didn't have to pay for the extra napkins we asked for..... The Ribs were very good though!
