Do one thing and do it well. Your menu choices: large plate of ribs or small plate of ribs. The ribs are huge and delicious. They come with some interesting sauces. Bonus- plastic gloves to wear while eating your ribs. You also get chips and guacamole. The guac is a little heavy on the lime juice. Mojitos are tasty, but... More

This restaurant is only open Friday and Saturday night. They only do one thing, ribs, but they do it right. The small order is enough for 2 people and the large order feeds 3. The ribs were outstanding and the mojitos very tasty. If you like those two things, it is a Must Go, if you don't then stay away.... More

Ribs were great and just as we like them with the meat almost falling off the bone. No messing around in this place ribs are what the menu says and ribs is what you get. I do not understand the reviews when people complain because at the end of the day it's RIBS small, medium or large portion. Tree hugging... More

I was searching for another BBQ place in El Poblado that, as it turned out, was being renovated at the moment. But some locals were sitting in a bar close by and directed me to Mu. Simon, the owner and cook, is turning out some very tasty pork ribs with some very nice sauces to go with them. One of... More

I was a little skeptical to go at first as I hadn't found a nice rib place in Medellin. One of my co workers informed me of this place and I was pretty amazed by the service and the awesome ribs they offered. They open around 6pm COL so this would be more for dinner. Don´t plan on taking lunch... More

After you visit Mu, their ribs will be in your list as one the best pork ribs in the world. No doubt. And the potatoes! For sure you'll want to be back to eat here. Reservation advised; you'll find a line en the street to enter. And confirm their business days. They normally open Thursday to Saturday.

How this place is not rated in the top five in Medellin is beyond me. By far the best food in Medellin and the ribs are as good as I've eaten in Texas. There not open every day but the food is delicious.

My visit to Medellin, Colombia happened to fall on my birthday. The wait staff was attentive. The food was great and I had to take half of it back to my apartment! This exceeded my expectations. The have a great 2nd floor patio with a view of the park.
