Yummy grilled meats, chicken, and seafood are all within your reach. Greatly satisfying, too. All at Ribshack Grill Bacolod!
Bacolodnons are known for the Bacolod Chicken Inasal. But actually, we are more than just chicken barbecue, as we love anything that’s grilled! And one Bacolod restaurant that has captured the essence of the Bacolod barbecue equation isRibshack Grill.
Ribshack Grill Beginnings
Ribshack Grill started as a takeout counter in the downtown area, barely two years ago. Confident about the public’s acceptance of their food offerings, they opened their first branch in a mall at the 888 Chinatown Premier Mall with a stall at the 2nd Floor Food Court.
Fueled by the overwhelming response at 888, they decided to open another branch, this time with a big dining area at where else, but SM City Bacolod. And just like that, people have been flocking to their branch there that you CANNOT, just cannot make reservations especially during rush hours because of the fast turnover of diners.
And now, they have a third branch (yeah, third because they already closed their operations in the Bacolod downtown area) at The District North Point, which opened early this year. And it is really making waves there.
Ribshack is a Sensation
The main reason why I say that Ribshack Grill understood the essence of Bacolod barbecue is that they offer only grilled stuff–back ribs, spareribs, blue marlin, jumbo squid, pork barbecue, beef kebabs, and chicken inasal and of course, rice–and nothing else.
But, since they specialized on their grilled menu, they were able to come up with the best versions of these grilled favorites that people were satisfied with them and didn’t want anything else. After all, the people that go there are seeking for barbecues anyway.
The Ribshack Value
And the most important factor at Ribshack Grill is the price. Even while operating in a mall where rent can be steep, you can still feast your heart out at Ribshack with your entire family without fear of draining your pocket because the food is really affordable and the servings are big. You will already give up eating but your budget remains healthy.
This is very important for Bacolodnons–we love to have only the best at the least possible price. haha Plus, you get to dine in a comfortable, air conditioned restaurant that has plants (yes, live hanging plants) on their wall. Ribshack Grill is eco-friendly with a refreshing view. And oh, did I mention that they have their own clean restroom with plants?
If you are wondering how Ribshack Grill can bring down the price when everything in the market, including rent and electricity, is very expensive nowadays, just don’t think that their food has extenders of some sort or what they serve is Made in China (bad joke hehe). They use only the freshest meats, seafood, and chicken but they can bring down the price because they buy directly from the source.
And the family that owns this Bacolod restaurant has a meat shop as their primary business, so don’t fret. You just get honest goodness from all the dishes at Ribshack Grill at a price that is friendly to the regular Bacolodnon’s budget.
I cannot point out to you what are my favorites at Ribshack, because honestly, I love everything that they offer. Everything is so tasty, tender, juicy, and the blue marlin is oh so good!!! It’s my daughter’s favorite actually.
So if you are craving for anything barbecued, you can feast without regrets at Ribshack because you know that everything there fits your budget. Your dessert or iced from a nearby coffee shop may be more expensive than your meal here. *wink*
