Chubby’s Rib Shack Dinner
Although we usually eat at a buffet during our month-sary, this time Jessa and I decided not to eat at one this time (we wanted to enjoy our food more and think less of making our buffet worth it). I suggested to eat at Chubby’s Rib Shack as we were both rib lovers. Upon checking out the place, we noticed that they cater to two restaurants; Chubby’s Rib Shack and Buffalo’s Wings n’ Things. Chubby’s Rib Shack serves more on meat (e.g. ribs, pulled pork, angus steaks) while Buffalo’s Wings n’ Things serves chicken (e.g. Buffalo Wings, Chicken Fingers) and burgers. The good thing was you can order from both!
Chubby’s Rib Shack – Buffalo Wings (1/2 pound) – Rookie w/ Bleu Cheese – PHP 139 + PHP 29
We started our meal with Buffalo Wings at Rookie level; their lowest level of spiciness and added Bleu Cheese for our dip. The chicken had a crunchy skin dripping with their sauce while the meat had the usual taste. I’m glad we added a dip because it saves me from the spiciness. However, if you want to taste more of the sauce, you can dip in the plate where the sauce dripped.
Chubby’s Rib Shack – Baby Back Platter (home style) – PHP 349
O right! Ribs! Each order of their Chubby’s Original comes with a huge Texas Toast, Honky Tonk Rice and Coleslaw. You can also pick from three sauces; Homestyle BBQ (a bit of spiciness), Honey BBQ (sweet) and Cayenne BBQ (hot!). The ribs were soft and tender, and I liked the Homestyle BBQ Sauce. It comes in a big serving so you might reach a point where you’ll grow tired eating it (umay). I didn’t like the taste of the Honky Tonk Rice when eaten solo but add a spoonful of ribs and it’s a perfect match!
Chubby’s Rib Shack – Pulled Pork Platter (honey BBQ) – PHP 249
This was my first time to try out pulled pork (unless Adobo Flakes fall in the same category) and wow! It was delicious! The honey BBQ sauce was able to seep in each strand which made every bite very flavorful. In fact, I even liked this more than their ribs (no offense to the ribs but this was just awesome).
We had a great time at Chubby’s Rib Shack and it surely made our month-sary different from our other dine-outs.
Till next time,
