Lately I’ve been scouring different food joints in my quest for the perfect Baby Back Ribs. The one that is so tender the meat easily falls off the bone and topped with the perfect mix of sweet tangy sauce that goes very well with a steaming cup of rice. Of course it has to be easy on the pocket too, preferably in servings that can be best shared by two or more persons. So far, here are my top picks:
Holy Cow’s Baby Back Ribs. Tasty and grilled to perfection and has just the right amount of tenderness. I love the barbeque sauce, it tastes heavenly. (around 300, oops forgot to jot down the exact price). Serving is good for two to three persons.

Racks Glazed Memphis Baby. Super tasty and tender too. It is smothered with deep-flavored Memphis barbeque sauce. If you like your sauce to be a little bit tangy, this one is for you. This is served with a Ceasar Salad and two side dishes of your choice. The Ceasar Salad goes perfectly well with the baby back. I suggest that you go for the mashed potato and broccoli & cheese side dishes, they have the best. Good for sharing, two to three persons at the most. (675)

If you want to play it safe though, Racks’ Classic Pork Ribs and Hickory Smoked Chicken (crispy and crunchy Hickory chicken almost stole the show) combination is a must try. This flame grilled baby topped with their “heaven in a bottle” barbeque sauce is simply to die for. Good for sharing too, two persons at the most. (395)

Big Daddy Jay’s All-American Barbeque. We did the rounds at Soderno at Molito Lifestyle Center two nights in a row last long wekend, and I must say that, hands down this one is the best among all the Baby Back Ribs being sold there. It is super tender because apparently they were cooked to perfection for 4 straight hours. Sauce is super duper greeeeeat–salty-sweet-tangy! Half order of Classic Smoked Pork Ribs with one side dish is good for sharing, two persons at the most. (277)

  1. I’m happy to know that the BEST among them all is actually the cheapest too! 😀 Just shows you that price doesn’t necessarily equate to quality. 🙂 I do like Rack’s baby back ribs, though 🙂 Very tender and flavorful as you said. Now I’m craving! Hahaha

  2. Thanks for the info. I have already tried Dad’s baby back ribs, ok naman sya. You can also try sa Hooters, warning: medyo small yung serving, and a bit pricey for its size.

  3. It’s been some time since I last had baby back ribs. A decade (or more) ago, I was content with Kenny’s, then Racks came to the South and it was like we had a piece of heaven. When Racks closed shop in one of the malls here, I don’t think I’ve ever ordered ribs again. The one at Soderno sounds really yummy that I MUST convince the hubby to try it out one of these weekends.
    Thanks for your comment about my post for Woodrose 🙂 It’s much appreciated and after last Saturday, we’re considering it as one of our top options. Have a good one!

  4. I’ve tried Holy Cow’s and Rack’s and I can say they’re tender and very flavorful.. 🙂 I don’t usually order baby back ribs so I haven’t tried other restos with potentially good ribs yet. Thanks for sharing this sis! I’ll definitely give Big Daddy Jay’s a go when I pay Soderno a visit which is probably really soon.. 🙂

  5. Thank you for the great review on Big Daddy Jay’s. We hope to formally meet you when you visit us next time 🙂 By the way, apart from Soderno in Alabang, we’re also at Mercato Centrale in Fort BGC on Saturday mornings, 7AM-2PM.
