“Make sure you're hungry...”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

My girlfriend and I have been trying to eat here for a while, and finally got the chance to. The reviews here are 100% accurate - I loved this place. I enjoy my BBQ, and these ribs were outstanding. We sat outside on the second floor, ordered, and the ribs and mojitos were quickly on our table. Ribs were tender, juicy, and flavorful. This place knows its barbecue - love the very limited menu. Only downside was that it's cash only. I definitely will be coming back!!

“Ribalicious!!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Before visiting Mu F**** Good Ribs, I was told that the owner's philosophy was to just do one thing and do it right. But the truth is that they do two things and they do them spectacularly. First, of course, are the ribs. These are a lesson in perfection. Wonderfully tender but not overcooked to the point that they fall off the bone and as flavourful as any ribs I've ever had. Enhancing the taste of the ribs is the selection of four scrumptious sauces served with them - spicy, BBQ, sweet and sour and chimichurri. The only thing bigger than the flavour of the ribs is the size of the ribs, which looked like they came from a prehistoric mastodon instead of a pig. Then on to the second thing that they do so, so well - their fries. These are huge beefsteak style fries almost an inch wide and half an inch thick. Served piping hot, they're crisp and golden on the outside and as fluffy as a perfectly baked potato on the inside. There were five of us in our group and the total cost after being stuffed to the gills, including drinks, tax and tip was about $105.00. Our dining experience can be summed up in three words, WOW, WOW & WOW!

“A MUst if you are in Medellin”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

CASH ONLY! Now that you have that info go prepared to enjoy a tasty meal. In all the reviews I read no one mentioned that COP was the only form of payment and we had gotten spoiled in Bogota where we used our credit card at even the smallest restaurants and cafes. So we were a bit limited in our beverage consumption but...

The ribs are delicious. The concept is brilliant. No menu, no choices. Oh yes...six ribs or nine. We went for nine and had a few to take home. What a great idea to provide guests with plastic gloves...so much better than using 50 paper napkins which end up sticking to your fingers and littering the table.

Our servers were friendly, attentive and were patient with my poor Spanish. We had a great table on the upstairs balcony overlooking the street.

If you are reading this before you travel to Medellin, be sure to plan to visit on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday...the nights MU is open. You too will join the MU fan club.
