“Best. Ribs. Ever.”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

If you're a vegetarian or don't like ribs, this isn't your place because that's all Mu does. But they're sticking to the formula of choosing one thing and doing it well, and for that we are thankful. You'll get a huge plate of tasty, succulent ribs, a selection of excellent sauces, and enjoy them with a fabulous fresh mojito, all served very fast and with a smile. Try to get a table on the terrace for a fabulous night out. One word of warning: they only open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

“Ambience and service - outstanding”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Went to Mu with my wife and two other couples and order one big plate plus another half.. Seemed just right. The fries were good, the sauces too.. but the ribs had very little taste without the sauces..... guess that's why the are there.. duhhhh...


Surprised that they only sold ribs, no veggies, no soup, no dessert, But they seem to be good at what they do as they were full with people waiting.

“Very good ribs but not much else”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

This is a good place for huge pork ribs, the only item on the menu served with french fries. The ribs are prepared ¨dry¨but apparently without a spicy rub. Sauces are provided at the table and include barbeque, hierbabuena, hot sauce and chimichuri.
Drinks are ok but nothing special but the beer is cold. Service was pretty poor unfortunately and the narrow metal stairway to the outdoor patio was a challenge. The patio itself was nice.

“Probably the best ribs I've ever had”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Mu is definitely a must visit when coming to Medellin. The ribs are massive!!! Unless you're REALLY hungry, I suggest the small order. The large order of ribs is enough for two people.

“Great Ribs, weak drinks”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Did I mention ribs? The secret is braised slow cooked finished on the grill. These are the big beef ribs. The fries are hand cut and seasoned just oh so perfect. Only complaint is the lack of booze in the drinks. Order a shot on the side (or pack your own flask) otherwise your mojito will be no more than a limey spearmint 7Up. If you are not a drinker this place is a home run!
