|Rub Ribs & BBQ|
Rub Ribs & BBQ. It was yet another special day for two of my closest friends as they invited the whole gang to join their post birthday celebration and to welcome back one of our good friends who had strayed away from the group for quite a long time. Join us as we have fun, celebrate, and dine only at Rub Ribs & BBQ in Pasig City.
Rubs Ribs & BBQ is a small restaurant situated in East Capitol Drive, one of the well known food districts here in Pasig City. This restaurant has its walls decorated will all of these 70’s posters and memorabilia. They have a small interior space that could sit around 40 to 50 people at the same time, but due to their huge volume of guests coming in almost non-stop even way past dinner time, you may have to wait in queue in the restaurant’s waiting area outside the store to be seated. I suggest you send one of your friends ahead if you are planning to dine here since I don’t think they accept reservations and they were only on a first come first serve basis; well at least that was the case when we went there.
|Family Brunch Meal|
We ordered four platters of their Family Brunch Meal which was good for 4 persons but personally I think I can clean that entire platter out given how delicious their Baby Back Ribs were. The Family Branch meal costs Php650.00 and is served with 2 whole slabs of their juicy, melts-in-your-mouth, great tasting, and mouth-watering Baby Back Ribs and three side dishes which you can select from whatever is available for that day. The side dishes that we were able to choose from were mashed potatoes, French fries, buttered corn, garlic spinach, Texas toast, coleslaw, potato salad, and buttered veggies.
|2 Slabs of B-B-R's and 3 Side Dishes|
I personally have never eaten spinach before because I was really not a fan of “green and leafy” veggies, but the moment I tried their garlic spinach, it was so good I needed to take the spinach out of the other rib platters. Their ranch style sauce and their Baby Back Ribs was just a match made in heaven as they complement each other’s own unique flavour which makes every bite an explosion of meaty goodness.
If you are visiting with a date or just a good friend, you could order the Super Duo meal which costs Php350.00 and is served with 1 whole slab of Baby Back Ribs and two side dishes of your own choosing. However, if you are just craving for a slab of meat and have no one to share it with, you may order their Singles Meal for Php195.00 and is served with half a slab of Baby Back Ribs, one side dish, and plain rice.

They also offer other American Style dishes such as sandwiches, soups, salads, snacks and nibbles, and several main entree meals as well.

|House Blend Iced Tea|
|Boding with my best friends|
After all the heavy meat munching that we did, the best way to flush down all of those strong flavour in your mouth was by having their House Blend Iced Tea for Php100.00 which was good for 4 servings. With an excellent ambience and a relaxing atmosphere, me and my friends just stayed there for a while, relaxed and told stories to catch up with what’s new within our circle of friends. But we were not able to stay for that long because seeing that there were still quite a few people waiting in queue to be seated, we just continued our conversation someplace else.
|Just hanging out ^_^|
In my personal opinion, I think the management could have opt for a bigger space knowing that their Baby Back Ribs were really good, people kept on coming back. When I saw their branch in Makati City along Nicanor Garcia Street, it still had a small dining space and I think when more people in that area discovers how good their Ribs are, they will also have some trouble because of space issues.
But I don’t think that would be much of a problem since the excitement that comes from waiting in queue in order to be served with one of the best Baby Back Ribs that I have tasted so far would totally be worth the wait. Truly, Rub Ribs & BBQ is one small restaurant that packs and provides a huge Meaty B-B-R dining experience.
