We went there on a Saturday evening, around 6. It was full already. The waiter offered to write our name on the waiting list and sent us to a bar close by. We waited there like 20 min, then he came and picked us up. In the cafe we ordered one portion of spare ribs and one portion smoked spare... More

Best ribs ever, says this Texan. The baked potato is pretty insane too, and I had a great Dutch beer or two while waiting on my food. This place is wild and loud and fun -- but lots of people seemed baffled by the limited, meat-centric menu once they finally sat down. This is a steak house! Don't think you... More

the best place for having spare ribs while enjoying the local atmosphere. you should order the spare ribs (and not the mix) in my opinion it is the best... and don't forget to order the baked potato. be prepared, the place is relatively small and you'll might have to wait up to approximately 45 minutes in the nice bar across...

Well known place for eating ribs, we took regular and smoked ribs, both were pretty good. The beer on tap was also good. All together the price was reasonable. As they are well known, you may need to wait. The service is very inpersonal.

It's kitchen stays open late that's a bonus. But the rest I find so so. There is no reservation option just turn up and put your name on a list. Waiting can be very long but ok. The person taking down the name & group size I find in general behaves as if they have the British Crown Jewels locked... More

The ribs were very good and good portion as well, we took the mixed dish. However, we only got in after waiting for a seat for two hours. Waiting is in a decent near by bar, but nothing special.. Bottom line - even though the food is good I wouldn't recommend it, the waiting is way too long and the... More

It was fully booked so we waited in the pub opposite for 45 minutes. They came and fetched us when our table was ready! It was defiantly worth the wait! Amazing food will defiantly be back.
