Who would have thought there's a foodie place along 17th Ave in Cubao? Well, so just you know there's this place that serves gorgeous slabs of ribs.

The place is simple with yummy quotes and murals. And when you arrive you'll be greeted with mouthwatering aroma of grilled ribs. Since we are only 2, we got the half slab. The ribs are served with sauce at the side. Yes, unlike the usual slabs served in restos, those that are thick coated by barbecue sauce to help accentuate the flavor.. This one you get to taste it without the sauce and see for yourself. Its tender and flavor is deep set into the meat. You may opt to eat it without the sauce 128521

Aside from ribs, we also had buffalo wings. We get the mango flavored sauce for it.. Guess what? Its great and a must try. For side dish, we had herb baby potatoes and corn, nothing spectacular but it goes along with the "star of the meal" .. The ribs. But honestly, the best partner is a cup of rice.

This place is worth visiting, but please be advised that orders were served from 10-15 mins.

It was a lazy Thursday afternoon when I suddenly thought of wanting to have dinner with my workmates after our work hours at the Cubao clinic. I searched around online for a good food place and stumbled across this joint. We wasted no time after work to get there.

The place is located a little out of the way of a big road and is quite simple. No frills interior and exterior, like a fast food place.

We went in like 10 minutes before 6 PM and the waitress at the counter looked at us in an annoyed manner. We didn't know what was up until she told us "6 pa kami nag-oopen". Oh okay, didn't know that, sorry. Also, your door wasn't locked. We started to ask about the food and she didn't even let us finish before saying "Mamaya na lang kayo mag-order."

?????? 🤔🤔🤔

It was like 5 minutes to 6 PM and we were just asking about the food, but okay. Luckily, another waitress comes in and starts taking our orders and answering our questions, much to the disproval of her co-worker. We even joked "Miss, bawal pa yata. May 30 seconds pa before 6. Hintayin na lang natin". Anyway, the menu was pretty straightforward. Ribs, pasta, chicken wings and sides. They also had drinks and desserts, but sadly no stock of desserts (key lime pie and ice cream) when we came.

We decided on a half-slab of their ribs (475 pesos) a dozen chicken wings split into Buffalo style and Honey Mustard and their buttered rice and herbed baby potatoes for sides.

The food took a bit of time to get to us but we were able to see how they cooked the food specifically for us (they were smoking the ribs outside). Food finally came and we dug in. The ribs was glorious!

Go here for their ribs! I repeat, go for the ribs! 128077 Tender, flavorful and sulit! The wings and sides were okay. The real star of the show was the ribs. They even offer a solo plate version of it at 190 pesos that already comes with a side and some mixed veggies.

Honestly, hope they improve their service, though. Snobby and unfriendly right until we left. Hmp! Minus one star for you! 128078

Just a quick note, don't forget that they're close from 2-6 PM! We went here at around 5PM so we were a bit surprised that there weren't any customers around yet 'til the girl told us that they'll be open again at 6. We were there again at 6:18PM but yet again, nobody was there yet, not even the staffs. We were about to head out already just when the staffs came back & finally opened the restaurant!

So let's get down to the more important part, the FOOD. We were supposed to order a Half Slab of Big Daddy Jay's Original Smoked Ribs but we each opted to have their Solo Plate (P180) instead, which already came with our choice of sides and mixed veggies, and are also only free for their solo plate. Their ribs were really good but not really the best ribs I've had. It tasted different from the ribs I'm used to but not in a bad way. It was actually a bit saltier than usual but the bland tasting herbed baby potatoes kind of complemented the very tasty ribs. We also ordered their Honey Mustard Chicken Wings (P160 for 6 pcs) which was delicious as well. Again, it's not really the standout kind of good. There are a lot of restaurants offering wings way tastier than theirs, but it's still worth a try.

Overall, the food was great. It's not really the best but you'll be satisfied with the affordable price you've paid for. And oh, don't go here if your tummy couldn't take waiting for 20 mins or more for your food to be served.

This unassuming place in the middle of Cubao has some of the best ribs I've ever had. They were hefty and meaty while still remaining soft and chewy. The flavor and the sauce were smoky and spicy; they really enhanced the taste of the ribs. The only side I tried was the bowl of baby potatoes and they were good, too. Sulit yung half slab for two people. This place is a must-try for meat-lovers.

We were always planning to go here because I saw different reviews about this restaurant. I was amazed with the pictures of the grilled pork whenever I browsed their menu. Last Saturday, we tried to go here with Kurt and Thea.

🔹FOOD & PRICE: The three of us ordered the Grilled Pork Combo for P180.00 only. It consists of side dish and little portion of corn and carrots. When I saw the serving, I was kinda disappointed because of the pork's size. But booyah, the taste nailed it! 128077 Super duper to the highest level tasty and delicious grilled pork I have ever tasted. Sorry for being so exagged but you should try it to believe what I'm saying. 128514 Sulit with the price but will not make you full if you are very hungry.

🔹SERVICE: Good so far. Medyo tinatamad lang mga crew when we got there because we were the first customers that night. 128513

🔹PLACE: You can't easily notice the place but it's across a gasoline station in 17th Ave. The ambiance is carinderia type. Sad. No music. 128560

Perhaps if the Rib"s were served, minus the fatty Liempo it would have been a better experience for me. I just really dislike being served inedible
And unhealthy FAT. I was expecting ribs and not liempo. Not to mention, i tasted a gas like flavor in my pork. I did not want to mention anything, but this is my honest opinion.

Well i can finish one solo plate and would still like to have another haha. Tender and tasty ribs! I love their sauce too. Not to mention it's really cheap. It's also a good thing that they added desserts and chicken wings to their menu since we first ate here which is a year ago. What I didn't like about it though is their schedule :( I wish they're open like the usual operating hours, so I could my cravings can be satisfied anytime hehe

I'm going to make this short and simple....

BEST Ribs I have tasted so far! This goes to show that you don't need Ribs that costs 4 digits to enjoy awesome food! Don't let the small menu fool you as all you need are Ribs and Wings then you're good to go! Whenever you're near the place make sure to visit and come back again. No ragrets!

Its scary-looking burnt exterior worried me from the start but after the first bite, boy, all my apprehensions were unnecessary. The meat is soft and packed with smokey flavor. It's perfect with the buttered rice. And the best part of the ribs? That black layer!

Bf and I were in the cubao area and we remembered this ribs place I wanna try. I had no mobile data on my phone and I can't remember the exact address but I'm glad that I saved it on my Must Try list here in looloo! :D

Anyhow, we ordered the smoked pork ribs (half slab) which costs P480 + buffalo wings. The half slab and full rack don't include any side dishes, so you need to order it separately. You gotta be patient here because your ribs will be grilled and will be ready at around 10-15mins. The verdict: the pork ribs were so tender and you can really taste its smokiness. It has been cooked for 6hrs. Also you can see on top that it's really dark due to the cooking process. It's not that dry too. What I also like about this is that it's not just the mere ribs part you are eating, they have included some extra meat parts, hence one slice is thick enough. It's also delish when you put some of their sauce.

The wings weren't bad too. It has that right kick. Overall, if I'd compare it with rub ribs...Rub is more affordable because you have side dishes already. If you prefer the usual ribs that are saucy go for rub. But if you want to taste flavor, go for Big Daddy Jay's. I advice that you guys at least try this one.

They're closed on Mondays btw, it's their smoking day.

love this more than rub's but boyfriend says otherwise. we're comparing it with rubs since they are both using ribs but with different style. rubs has a jucier meat and the flavors come from the sauce. meanwhile, big daddy jay's a little bit dry but it's the flavors that i love. i could really taste the meat and its "smokey" flavor, and the barbecue sauce that came with it definitely enhanced the flavor. their potato and mixed veggies felt like they were cooked with butter, which is yummy. to top of our lunch, we ate key lime pie. it was definitely something that i didnt expect. it's goooooood! the right flavors for something sweet and sour.

definitely coming back! :D
