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 this 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're making 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 is setting up their bricks-and-mortar shop in Fish Lane in South Brisbane. Their new venture won't open its doors until January 2017, but hey, being able to feast on their American-influenced bites in their very own diner is worth waiting for.
Until then, keep heading to West End on Fridays and Saturdays for all your rib needs — and keep an eye on their Facebook page for any other pop-up appearances around the city. 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.
Find Big Roddy's Ripping Rib Shack on the corner of Cordelia Street and Fish Lane in early 2017. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
