Big Roddy's Ripping Rib Shack Has Set Up Shop in Fish Lane
Head to South Brisbane for American-style beef and pork ribs galore.
April 01, 2017
When it comes to finger lickin' goodness, fried chicken isn't the only delicious dish in town. Who doesn't love getting all sticky eating a big batch of ribs? And as regulars at the Boundary Street Markets will agree, Big Roddy does some of the best.
Since April last year, Big Roddy's Ripping Rib Shack has been one of the best places in the city to get your Chicago-style barbecue fix — and they're not done filling your stomachs just yet. Like so many market stalls before them, they've made the leap to a permanent store because everyone really does need more beef and pork ribs, buffalo wings, poutine and burgers in their lives.
Also following in the footsteps of plenty of other Brisbanites, Big Roddy's has set up their bricks-and-mortar shop in Fish Lane in South Brisbane. Their new venture opens its doors at 5pm on April 1 — more than seven months after word of their new home first spread — but hey, being able to feast on their American-influenced bites in their very own diner is worth waiting for.
As for what's on the menu, expect half and full racks of both pork and beef ribs; veggie, cheese and fried chicken burgers; and the combination of both that is certain to tempt your tastebuds, aka The Ribwich, as served on a brioche bun. Snacks include wings dripping in sauce and dipped in homemade garlic aioli, chicken bites, chilli fries, jala-macca-peño poppers (which, yes, really do stuff good ol' jalapeño poppers with mac 'n' cheese), and the fries, gravy and cheese curd combo that is poutine. Be warned: if you weren't a rib lover before, you will be soon if you keep looking at pictures of their drool-worthy dishes.
