we went there for the ribs but they weren't any good. the food is mediocre, the service is slow and unfriendly. since it's called "ribs" they could at least do that well. didn't try anything else and never went back.

I wrote a review last year after I went there for the first time. We have been there quite a few times since, so I feel an update is needed. I saw past reviews mentioning rude staff. I am not doubting the accuracy of them,...More

Went there with a group of 30 plus people. Organizing was a problem 'I'm very busy now, call back in 20 minutes' - this was after we reserved the larger part of their 'restaurant'. Service, as seems normal in Leuven (studentcity) = zero. No credit...More
