I personally know the Owner, And I can't count the times he has told me to try his ribs! I'm from south Louisiana, so I think How can anyone cook Ribs better than the south? I told my girlfriend lets go to Simons Restaurant and see what he has been raving about! When I arrived the staff was awesome, Sat... More

I loved the food, but it was close to 50mil for a plate of ribs and some fries. The service was great and the food delicious. But we also got charged very much for drinks. Our final bill was close to 90mil ($45) US. I gave it low only because you can get better food for that price.

Fantastic ribs! Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for dinner so mark your calendar! You don't want to miss this place. And get there early or be prepared to wait for a table. But it is worth the wait!

If you're a vegetarian or don't like ribs, this isn't your place because that's all Mu does. But they're sticking to the formula of choosing one thing and doing it well, and for that we are thankful. You'll get a huge plate of tasty, succulent ribs, a selection of excellent sauces, and enjoy them with a fabulous fresh mojito, all... More

This is a good place for huge pork ribs, the only item on the menu served with french fries. The ribs are prepared ¨dry¨but apparently without a spicy rub. Sauces are provided at the table and include barbeque, hierbabuena, hot sauce and chimichuri. Drinks are ok but nothing special but the beer is cold. Service was pretty poor unfortunately and...

Mu is definitely a must visit when coming to Medellin. The ribs are massive!!! Unless you're REALLY hungry, I suggest the small order. The large order of ribs is enough for two people.

Did I mention ribs? The secret is braised slow cooked finished on the grill. These are the big beef ribs. The fries are hand cut and seasoned just oh so perfect. Only complaint is the lack of booze in the drinks. Order a shot on the side (or pack your own flask) otherwise your mojito will be no more than... More

You go to mu for ribs, which is good because its all they serve. And that's. just fine because they do an excellent job. The smaller portion was plenty for my girlfriend and I, although a nearby table of three portly locals finished off two of the large portions. I must say the French fries were pretty terribly, completely overcooked... More
