BIG RODDY’S RIPPIN’ RIB SHACK
When you visit this cute diner-meetsindustrial-look rib joint in South Brisbane’s hip Fish Lane precinct, whatever you do, don’t eat the beef ribs with your hands. Not because it’s bad manners but because that huge hunk of slow-cooked meat is so tender, it’s likely to slide right off the bone and into your lap – so instead of tasting the sticky, deliciously smoky-sweet sauce, you’ll be wearing it. The deep-fried wings slathered in buffalo sauce pack a decent punch, too, and come with your choice of dipping sauces. Keep it classic with the blue-cheese option or take a chance on the lime and pepper mayonnaise. Unlike the beef, pork ribs are definitely finger food so dig in – they have bibs if you need one. For a different take on fries, try the Canadian-style poutine, a decadent basket of hand-cut chips that are smothered in gravy and squeaky cheese.
