“Worst Tough Ribs Ever!!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I can't believe I went off the reviews for the best Ribs in Vienna. I'm glad they weren't claimed as the best in the world! We visited September 9th 2013 here having the Meter Ribs with the 3 selection and all were tough. These ribs are not the best at all, they don't fall off the bone...more like you have to cut or twist them hard to seperate them. I was very disappointed with them. I would not go back here again :(

“Every flavour of ribs you can think of!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

After reading some good reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to visit Ribs of Vienna. It was located towards the end of a quiet street, not too far away from the centre of town. We had not booked but was lucky they had a table for us since it was a Saturday night. The decor was basic, but interesting as it was underground. We chose the ribs menu for 2 people, which meant we could choose up to 5 flavours of ribs along with vegetables, coleslaw, garlic bread and potatoes. We opted for 3 flavours in the end and wow, the portions were really big - good value for money! We did not even finish all the ribs, let alone touch any of the other side dishes! The vegetable, coleslaw and garlic bread was only ok, but the potatoes were delicious. I would suggest booking a table as it was busy. Overall, great experience - the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent!

“Good restaurant, good food, good place”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Though the location is quite hard to find and the underground restaurant seems to block all the smoke inside, the ribs of Vienna are superb. My recommendation for girls is that you should order a portion to share as the dish is quite big for a girl.

“Places to eat in Vienna”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you like ribs this is the place to go in Vienna.
Grate food fast and very friendly service fantastic atmosphere and they cater for veggies without laughing at your wife when she asks for veggie food in a rib joint.
Very popular place for ribs so book a table and they will have ribs, if you just walk in they may well have sold out of ribs.
I went for the 3 rack special and this is a meter and a half of ribs,take your pick of different flavourers from the menu and get your rib face on.
My wife had onion soup,deep fried mozzarella with salad and fries witch she says was lovely.

We found this place after looking for and finding a very snobby veggie restaurant witch was a place to be seen eating over priced veggie food in a meat centric city, not for us.
