“Better than expected”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This place was recommended to us by different people. I'm always aware to the difference in tastes, therefore I take EVERY recommendation with a "grain of salt". I'm a renown "carnivore" and I very much enjoyed their spare ribs. The price was right too. My "significant other" prefers not to eat meat, but he also couldn't resist the temptation and had his share. I just recommended this place to 2 other couples traveling to Amsterdam.

“Fantastic ribs”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We came early and were lucky to get at table at once. We had the mixed ribs - which are both normal and smoked. They came with two sauces and a salade. We also had baked potatoes. The portions are huge - so you need to be very hungry to finish it all. But it really do taste wonderful and you better be prepared to eat more than you really need. The staff are efficient but friendly. The prices are really good.

“RIBS”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Good beers, friendly staff.
They also serve the best ribs you'll ever eat in your life...

Be sure to reserve a place or come before 6 pm or there's no way you're getting in.

“A little overhyped?”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Was highly recommended for their ribs by a few friends as the best in the world. Portions were very big and value for money - about €17 for 3 racks of ribs, basket of French bread, 2 sauces and slaw, which was really yummy. Amstel pint was <€2. Taste wise it was ok but I've had better. Ribs did not fall off the bone. Some chewing required. The cafe was more a pub and you will come away smelling smokey. Sat at the bar. Long wait if you have more people.

“Worth the visit.....food not great”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

High hopes unrealized. Portions indeed large for 24 euro range, hence the "4" in value. We Got 3 things: 1) regular ribs, 2) lamb shoulder, 3) smoked chicken. 1 was large, tender and had good flavor- BUT fatty, which means not cooked long enough to render the fat. 2, interestingly, was so overcooked it was dry and meat badly separated. 3, surprisingly, was delicious, if not cooked long enough for meat to release bone. Average slaw side. Fun pub atmosphere with friendly service and nice low oak tables. May go back some day when I want to pack my intestines with meat like a sausage, but it won't be for the food. Come on, people, honestly, a "5?" Never.
