It seems I can't get enough of ribs?!? Actually, I got kind of umay already after our eat-all-you can ribs at Rib City last weekend so the last thing I would want was another smoked/grilled ribs. I ordered the Southern Fried Chicken instead. My sister ordered the Classic Ribs.

127831 Southern Fried Chicken (half, ₱380) I liked the chicken, and I was glad it had no blood so it means the chicken was indeed cooked to perfection. Big, but not too plump which was a good thing. Very crunchy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. The buttermilk biscuits slathered with butter and honey were good too!

127830 Classic Ribs (half, ₱355) - I liked Racks' ribs better than the ribs I had at Rib City (I was kind of thrown off by its sweet-ish BBQ sauce). Not dry, quite tender and well-seasoned.

Both sides, the Coleslaw Salad and the Potato Salad (regular, ₱60 each) made great accompaniments to the ribs.

Went to Racks SM Megamall last July 12 Tuesday for lunch. It's my cousin treat because she just came back from Bahrain. It's a mini reunion with my cousins on mother side.

We got the Family platter which is good for 5-6 persons and were 5 in the group so there is an allowance.

We got the Racks Ribs & Chicken family platter combo. The famous combination family platter, half rack beef ribs, half rack classic pork ribs, half smoked chicken , choice of any two large side dishes and we choose cob corn and pasta. Then a pitcher of iced tea. For the price of 1,795 pesos.

The staffs are accommodating, we had picture taking while having our lunch and they are our cameraman lol. We've stayed for around 2 hours and they patiently wait for us to finish .

Truly one of the best ribs in town!

I've always been a fan of Racks ever since my boyfriend brought me to this place. There's nothing much to review about because the food has always been the best for me. They just need to upgrade the quality of their service.

Every time I visit Racks, I always order the:
🔹Racks Baby Ribs
It's so soft that you wouldn't have any struggle on getting them off the bones. The texture's amazing, and so is the flavour (with or without the sauces).

Personally, I like eating the ribs without the bbq because I'm not really a fan of savoury sweetness. But the ribs're still on their A-game with the sauces.
128077🏻I'd suggest getting some cornbread (If you're a fan of Southern food) and some Broccoli+Cheese on the side.

🔹House Salad
I looove salads and this one's one of the best ones that I had, locally. I was expecting it to be sweet because of the raspberry vinaigrette, but all in all, it had the perfect balance of citrus and sweetness. I loved it so much, that I order it on my every visit. It's extremely refreshing. You could use it as a palette cleanser.

Although it would be better if they'd throw in more dressing on their serving. 128523

We were looking for a real big meal after a long day. I was craving for meat so we ended up eating at My personal favorite. We ordered the ribs and chicken that comes with rice, drinks and side dishes. Racks never fails to amaze my taste buds. Fall off the bone meats! Still my personal favorite!

I really love everything here especially their bestseller Classic Pork Ribs and Baby Back Ribs!! Super tender meat and very flavorful even on the inside. Rack's ribs' one of the best I've ever tasted 128524

The Blackened Salmon Steak was also scrumptious 128077🏼

Every time I eat here their Mississippi Mudpie is always present on my orders. The mouthwatering melted chocolate inside a cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, ooooh so yummy 10084️ Always looking forward to the dessert part 128077🏼

For a place that sells ribs, it's the chicken that you must try. To be honest, I found the ribs to be dry and bland. It's also way too small and pricey. There's no value for money.

But talk about the chicken. The meat just falls off the bone. It's tender but still has great texture. Flavor is an explosion of smoke and spices. ♥

Strawberry milkshake is just luuurve! Tried racks for a team lunch and the meal was definitely filling. I got to sample their sweet n smokey boneless ribs and a classic quarter rack. The ribs was not as fall-off-the bone as I'd wish but it was soft and flavourful. It had a nice blend of smokey sweet and sour taste to it, also the right amount of meat x fat. The side that stood out was the potato salad and the macncheese pasta was surprisingly al dente, they obviously made an effort not to over cook the pasta.

You would think that milkshakes might not go well with ribs, but the strawberry milkshake didn't really have to, as it took the meal to the next level. It was as good as having a dessert which was not too sweet and it capped the meal quite well. Glad to have tried racks and it'd be my go to for milkshakes. :)

When I had my first bite of their classic steak. The only word that is running on my mind was "Ang sarap" 128561 I can just type here super sarap x100 hahaha

128077🏻I was impressed with the quick service of my order and the tenderneeeessssss of the steak plus its super malasa 128525 I ordered the smallest cut but its still big. I believe good for 2 and its best partnered with 2 java rice hahah. Sa super sarap I had 2 cups of rice.

Until my last bite "Ang sarap" lang ung naiisip ko. 128077🏻

This isn't my 1st time at Racks but it's my 1st time to review it here on looloo! :)

To everyone who thinks Racks is expensive, well you're wrong. Cause everything in their menu is worth the price! :)

The one on the photo is a Family Platter + the Onion Brick that is very "sulit". The Family Platter we ordered was good for 6 people. And yes, it is true!! The only resto that is good w/ estimating the proper serving of food!! Hehe. But if 4-6 of you is a fan of rice, you might be having an additional order of it!

On photo:
Onion Brick (something) hehe : 200+
Family Platter: 1,700+
*2 side dishes (your own choice)
*chicken, pork, beef (yes all of it; in half)
*pitcher of drink (additional 27pesos if iced tea)
*rice platter

Yup! Very detailed cause that's how our family loves Racks!! Esp. when we want something worth the price to satisfy our hunger! :)

Had lunch here with family.

We ordered Garlic Scampi Pasta and the house specialty, Classic Pork Ribs. I personally did not order rice and got a serving of mashed potato instead. The pasta was al dente!128076

Though it's pricey here, the food quality and service is superb. We will definitely come back. 128077

Everything was yummy although I think their service could've been better. They have enough waiters and waitresses but it took us 5-6 times of calling them. Too bad that they have good food and a good location then here comes a downside :(

We had Mesclun Ribs, Southern Fried Chicken and Carbonara. The Carbonara was divine! ;)

The first time I tried Racks was at MOA with my college friends and I was so satisfied with what they had served us. For me, it was more ideal to dine here in a group since their servings was big.

In my second try, I should've asked the waiter what they can recommend for two, I just hurriedly picked our order with what looks appetizing in the menu because I am starving to death! Haha! So yeah I ended up not so satisfied with what we have ordered.
