The place is just ok. It has that TGI Fridays kind of vibe, which works if you are hungry and in need of a quick, not so expensive lunch. I did not have ribs, which obviously are the specialty, but did have meat and a baked potato (everything was just ok). Service is not bad but not especially good either.... More

Thanks so much for your visit and comments David. I am disappointed we did not wow you. Next time try our world famous ribs, we have several cuts to choose from. In the meantime I'll make sure we work on our service. More

This restaurant seemed like a good lunch spot and while it didn't disappoint it wasn't anything out of the ordinary for this traveler. Coming from the U.S. this type of cuisine is very common so it might have been a mistake to expect something special. I had the Texas Ranger meal which came with Ribs and Veggies. It was good...

We were a large group (32!!!!), and the food was very good. But really outstanding was the staff, who was always willing to help. What a great surprise!

The Texas Ribs on Insurgentes has an inviting atmosphere. The staff are amicable and explain the various dishes thoroughly. The food is excellent. The Baby Back Ribs and the chocolate desserts are divine.

I had casual dinner with a colleague there. The beer (from tap) and he baby back ribs were very good. Nothing to complain. Installations where clean (including the rest rooms) and lots of seating available – at least on a Tuesday night. If you need a quieter ambiance I recommend to take a table downstairs. There is also the kids-area.... More

Good American (Texas) atmosphere. Good ribs, especially the combo plate. Moderate prices. A few blocks from the WTC and right next to a Hooters. TV screens for the big matches.

I am a true believer than sometimes a not so great food can be overcome with great service but also great food can be brought down with bad service. Texas Ribs falls in the later. I have to say if you are looking for great BBQ ribs in Mexico City is a good place but you will find yourself with... More

Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention, and thank you for your compliments on our food. I am sorry the service was not up to your expectations and our standards. We do carry Budweiser and Bud Light, but this must have been another oversight of your server. We have taken corrective steps to ensure our patrons enjoy the... More

This place really makes you feel like you are in Texas and the food is good, I wouldn´t say more. The only things that don´t look very texan are the beverages, the size is way too small... =) Service is just average, the place wasn't crowded, and still it took a while for our food to arrive

Great barbeque, real Texan Flavor in Mexico City. I highly recommend the sampler platter WITH SWEET CORN AND A STUFFED POTATO AS SIDE DISHES. DON'T MISS the Slenea Margarita with tamarind and powedered chile piquin.... JUST AWESOME! (FOR JUST 4 BUCKS!)
