Launched in 2011, Ribs & Burgers is a foodie favourite with a focus on fresh and healthy ingredients.
A growing chain of wholly owned restaurants and rapidly expanding in Australia, with global expansion on the horizon, the delectable dining brand turns four this month.
The name Ribs & Burgers says it all. The venue offers fresh, hot, succulent burgers and eight hour slow cooked ribs paired with friendly service, cosy vintage furnishings within a warm welcoming atmosphere.
BBQ Beef Ribs
Slow cooked for 8 hours to ensure that the meat is cooked in its own juices for a stronger natural flavour, the ribs here are amazing. No effort is spared to prepare these beauties - From sourcing the finest cuts to the traditional preparation.
Lemon and herb Lamb Ribs
Both the BBQ Beef Ribs and the Lemon and herb Lamb Ribs were stunning - Tender, falling off the bone, juicy and packed with flavour.
We enjoyed the Original burger - an almighty burger with a large beef mince patty, shredded iceberg, tomato, Spanish onion dill pickles and their special pink & BBQ sauce all squeezed into a fresh, toasted brioche bun. Yum!
For something a little different from the beef patty, we recommend their Lamb burger which is filled with beautifully spiced lamb, tomato, rocket, fetta, Spanish onion and tzatziki. A clever and pleasingly complex combination of flavours that we loved.
The menu also boasts a tasty election of sides. The mouth-watering onion rings in particular were a stand out - deliciously encased in the crispiest of batters.
For a sweet end to the meal, we recommend getting one of their thickshakes. We tried the milo thickshake and seriously haven’t stopped thinking about it.
A testament to serving honest food alongside genuine hospitality, Ribs & Burgers is a winner.
