Ribs & Burgers Zetland

Being a Dallas native by origin, I can understand the growing obsession with Texas BBQ here in Australia. One of the links I certainly did draw between this fixture of the American culinary world, and Ribs & Burgers, was the service.  With a smile that could light up a thousand service stations, we were greeted at the register by an enthusiastic attendee who wholeheartedly put the ‘zeal’ into Zetland. Taking a seat after ordering, I noticed the long queue of locals (Do people actually live in Zetland?), lining up to take away large brown paper bags filled up with what’s on offer. The Old School Cheese Burger ($10.50) could have used a higher ‘patty to bun’ ratio, as the meat was its only decent feature. The Pork Spare Ribs ($28.50) were a little on the dry side for the most part, but the smoky BBQ sauce was a savior, albeit quite thinly spread. Surprisingly, the standout for me were the Chicken Wings ($9.50) with sticky soy, which fared even better still, when being dipped into the provided aioli sauce. We also had some kick-ass Thick Shakes ($7/each), one Milo-flavoured and the other vanilla malt. If you can stomach the dairy content, they’re worth a go.
