Dining Out

A feast of simple pleasures at Ribs & Burgers Nicolway

Jul 16, 2019, Author: Hello Joburg

The aptly named Ribs & Burgers wastes no time letting you know what it’s good at, and boy, is it good at it. The restaurant offers a casual dining experience where you can enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer- burgers and milkshakes, of course.

The unique ordering service means that you order your food on a computer at the front of the restaurant and a waitress will bring it to you when it’s ready. While it may be an unorthodox approach to service, it certainly is a novel experience.


Meat lovers are spoilt for choice with the wide selection of ribs on offer; beef, pork and lamb. We had the BBQ pork St. Louis ribs and dare we say they were the best we’ve ever had. Succulent, full of flavour and falling off of the bone, these ribs were definitely one to remember.

The crispy chicken burger was another favourite of ours. The chicken was tender and moist, while the house mayonnaise was creamy and rich. With over fifteen different burgers on the menu, there’s definitely something for everyone. The 100% beef patties and free-range chicken breasts are all served on a seeded brioche milk bun.


Regular and sweet potato fries can be ordered as a side, we recommend you do, because what’s a burger without fries? The thickshakes, which come in three different flavours are the ideal drink to complement your meal. House-made lemonade is also available.

There are also a few meat free options for all the vegetarians out there, and no, not just salads. There are homemade Moroccan falafels or if you’re a fan of mushrooms try out the Veggie stack. The carb conscious can also opt to have their burger on a bed of lettuce rather than a bun.


Much like the food, the interiors too are simplistic. The mix of white modern tiles and selection of interesting décor like sunshine yellow chairs, cobalt blue booths and marble table tops gives the place a trendy but relaxed feeling.

Ribs & Burgers originated in Australia, but now has chains all over the world and it’s easy to see why. In a world doing crazy things for the perfect burger, Ribs & Burgers is the perfect place to enjoy a classic and unfussy one.
