Feasting at Ribshack Grill–so hearty!

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 is Ribshack 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.

The counter of Ribshack Grill at SM City Bacolod where you order and pay. Then the food will be served to you.

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.

Must-try Pinoy Foods

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.
