“Five times in six visits to AMS”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Love it here. The staff, the food, the sister bar. I've only ever eaten ribs here (mixed at e21) and believe I will always visit when in town.

The staff are great. The little waiting bar over the road is great. The ribs are amazing.

Not sure what else to add. The cost was ~e50 for two very hungry diners.

“If service isn't a priority, this a the place for you.”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Great food for carnivores but service is much to be desired.
The waiters hinge on the point of rudeness.

“EAT. THE. RIBS.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Walked across town to get here on a friend's recommendation. Upon arrival my girlfriend couldn't help but blurt out "oh, is this it?" in a very underwhelmed tone. Once I'd got her inside though it was all smiles. Great service and fantastic food. The mixed ribs plate is huge, definitely enough for 2 to share and it comes with bread. Ask for the garlic butter! Possibly the greatest ribs I've ever eaten. Will be visiting this place every time I'm in the area. NOM NOM NOM

“Great ribs, great staff - but try the lamb shoulder!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Really fantastic place, right in the city center--portions are huge, ribs are out of this world-- but you have to try the lamb shoulder-- simply amazing. Warning: go early or face a small wait-- no reservations. Casual friendly staff will joke with you-- smallish interior not suited for large groups, but very worth the trip!

“Great staff, great food!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

First things first, if you go here make sure you try the ribs! They are the best ribs I have ever had and WOW the portion was huge! They have 2 types of ribs - regular and smoked. The first time we went, they only had the regular ones and they were delicious! Seriously the best ribs I've ever tasted. So much food as well! The ribs come with a basket of bread and garlic butter, and a really tasty coleslaw/salad. We ordered a jacket potato as well just for a bit of variety but we knew we couldn't eat it all! The staff were really friendly as well, good to have a joke with them and had a long chat with a couple of the guys. We were so impressed that we visited again on our last night in Amsterdam. My partner tried the smoked ribs this time, but we both preferred the regular ones. One of the guys behind the bar told us that if he'd taken our order he would've suggested getting half and half, as they are quite salty and not really suited to an English person's tastebuds. We still had a great time though. It was busy both times we went, and there was a great atmosphere in the place! I would definitely go again!
