   Pancit

Rack's fried chicken is my favorite kaya nun nag dine kami nag order ako nun at ng pancit nila kaya busog na busog ako. Yung pancit meron pang French toast na kasama.Nagpatak patak kami ng mga kasama ko so that mas mura ang per head spending which is a good idea for a big group na magda dine in dito sa Rack's

Babyback ribs and Hickory Smoked Chicken
Smile 2013-10-18

   Iced Tea

   Pork Ribs with garlic bread

   Babyback ribs & Hickory Chicken with mashed potato

When you're craving for man-sized meaty dishes, you can always rely on Racks to satisfy that huge appetite. They serve the most delicious fall-off-the-bones meat selections like Pork, baby back ribs or chicken. Aside from the tenderness of their meat, the flavor is top-notch because of the wooden fired oven/grill that they cook the food with.

We ordered the Pork ribs and the baby back + hickory smoked chicken! They come with 2 side dishes which you have the option for mashed potato, cheesy vegetables, fusili salad and more. Each time I visit their restos, they have a new side dish so just shows their dedication to expand their menu.
Pricepoint for their meals are at a reasonable range so you need not shelve out more.

Serving time is also reasonable considering they grill/bake your orders upon ordering.
This branch is located in front of the San Miguel by the bay row of restaurants so after dining you can head over to hang out at the boulevard.

Not only....
Smile 2013-02-17

 

Not only that Racks serves good main dishes for lunch and dinner..... they also serve good desserts...... really good one.

Racks in SM Mall of Asia, Central Business Park Bay Blvd in Pasay City is such a very amazing place to visit.
The last time I went here, I was with my family and we had our dinner.

All of us enjoyed our Racks Baby Ribs, their Southern Fried Chicken and Blackened Salmon Steak.
But above everything else, what we enjoyed more is our dessert which is a chocolate cake topped with a vanilla ice cream and a whipped cream. It was such a must try!

Two thumbs up for you Racks!

Caesar Salad
Smile 2012-10-13

 

 

It was such another amazing experience dining in at Racks. If you have not been here yet, I would highly recommend for you to come and try their delicious treats. You can visit one of their branch in SM Mall of Asia, Central Business Park Bay Blvd. Pasay City. I would also highly recommend for you to try their Caesar Salad and as you will have it through the meal; you will surely not get disappointed. Damage to the budget is higher than usual. You can enjoy their delicious treats at the price range of 300.00 php tp 600.00 php but it is totally worthwhile!

Racks Sides
Smile 2012-10-04 (Related Review)
Racks also offer various delectable side dishes along with their best seller pork ribs. For today, I ordered two sides that captured my taste buds. I really love broccoli and I know it has a lot of nutrients that I need. Mac & Cheese is not hard to love, it can be adored or hated by many because of its simplicity.

 

Broccoli and Cheese & Mac and Cheese - The broccoli were just half cooked and remained crunchy on every bite. It was sliced on a bite-sized manner so that the customers wouldn't have a hard time slicing it. The macaroni was firm and the cheese was creamy. It didn't tasted that salty but it just remained rich and delicious.

House Salad
Just OK 2012-09-20 (Related Review)

 

House Salad - I was surprised that it was served with garlic bread on the side. It's unusual for a salad to be sided by bread, for me. The bread was amazing - it was soft and has light garlic flavor. That thin strips on top of the salad were apple strips. It was still fresh (without dark spots), crisp, and sweet. It's an ordinary salad served with a raspberry sauce, which was really interesting. It's something new that the dip served is a creamy sweet raspberry sauce. Who would have thought, it was a good match! smile

Mississippi Mud Pie
Smile 2012-09-20 (Related Review)

 

Mississippi Mud Pie - Who will let the day end without eating a dessert? This is Racks' famous one. This is really something... a comfort zone. The mud pie was served hot, topped with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream drizzled with chocolate syrup! The mud pie was moist, soft, and chocolatey and the warm and cold temperature was a good combination on this dessert! Vanilla ice cream can never go wrong on anything for desserts. Because of its sweetness, I prefer this dessert to be shared with your loved ones <3

Blue Plate
Smile 2012-09-19
Hooray, it's E's birthday so we celebrated at Racks! Gotta love their Ribs. <3 Good thing they have this 'Blue Plate Meals' for an affordable price. Of course, we chose this Racks' Classic Pork Ribs which was sided by a salad and a choice of their side dish. It also comes with a Clam chowder soup!

 

I love everything about Racks Classic Pork Ribs, it's very tender and melts in my mouth! I love its authentic ribs flavor. The salad was also on a light serving it comes with fresh greens. Does it look like a small serving? For me, it was just right for a hungry tummy or it's too much for a light eater. smile

Definitely Racks
Smile 2012-07-17

 

Carbonara - This is a solo serving of pasta served with two garlic bread. For me, this is one of the best carbonara I've ever tasted. The sauce was creamy and the meat (ham) was of enough serving. I just can't help myself on stopping while eating this delicious dish! The sweetness and salty flavor of the white sauce was just right. The pasta was well-cooked. The bread was rightly toasted for neutralizing the taste buds for the pasta. The price was indeed reasonable for the serving of the pasta, moreover, it's really worth it. (P 161.00)

 

Racks Classic Pork Ribs (Half Rack) - It was served with garlic bread and two side dishes, and for this I ordered Corn on the Cob and Broccoli and Cheese. I just can't resist on how yummy the ribs was. It was really tender and great. It really falls off the bone! The flavor was really good and might be better if you add their signature barbeque sauce which has two kinds: Regular and Extra Hot. The ribs was definitely a heavy meal and makes a hungry stomach really full and satisfied. Great food at an affordable price! ( P425.00 )

Racks really never failed to make me happy in terms of their food. I really love their ribs and carbonara. For mouthwatering, delicious, sumptuous and heavy food finds, Racks is the one to look for. lol

Eating Racks
Smile 2012-06-27
Price: P 409 (Beef Ribs and Chicken)

Description: Tenderly grilled rib and chicken fried to perfection served with gravy

Personal Review: We went to MOA with my family to window shop and treat our daughter to some kiddie rides. We spent our lunch at Racks and ordered the Beef Ribs and Chicken. The serving was generous and perfect for us three. The chicken was great but the beef ribs was a bit burned. Anyway, it was still a great dining experience.

Smokin' Barbecue Ribs at Racks
Smile 2011-10-14
I have dined at Racks countless times already, with a date, with friends, with my sister and at different branches -- SM Mall of Asia, Robinson's Place Manila, Greenhills, etc. However, although I have come to dine here for different occasions and with different people, there are things that remain the same -- good food and great service.

Whenever we choose to dine at Racks, I always find myself ordering for the Baby Ribs Combo Platter (P316) as it already a complete and filling meal served with the barbeque baby ribs, rice and a choice of side dish. I have also tried the Classic Pork Ribs Quarter Rack Combo Platter (P238) and it is also as satisfying as the baby ribs. The special barbecue sauce at Racks also completes the whole foodgasm experience.

For the side dish, my top picks are the Potato Salad and Gravy Fries. Both are scrumptious and perfect to go along with the main dish. I have also tried the Mac and Cheese, and Pasta Salad, but they weren't as good as I expected them to be. Both are a little bland and nakakaumay.

Another thing I like about Racks is their Iced Tea which tastes better than the regular Nestea iced tea often served at other restaurants. Racks' Iced Tea has some honey and is a bit pulpy which I totally dig.

THE VERDICT
Racks does not only serve great food coupled with exemplary service, but proves to be consistent whichever branch you choose to dine. Throughout the years that I have been dining here, there wasn't an instance where they fall short of my expectations.

As I haven't visited Racks recently, I hope that when I do their food and service still remain unchanged, or better yet, have even improved.

Everything's at steak
Smile 2011-08-12
Another event to attend to means trying out new dishes in the metro (but staying late in the office). This is a usual scenario for us consultants in a PR agency, it is a must to attend the events of your co-team members to help them as well. Thank God this event is just an intimate bloggers event for a client.

The event was held at Racks MOA since the office of most of the invited bloggers are just around the area. We had ribs and chicken for sharing, some potato salad and corn on cob, and more baby ribs. I felt like I've had meat overload that day. But nevertheless, the event was fun and we did get a lot of pickups after.

Racks is perfect for gatherings and intimate events like this because of its fun vibe!

Rack Baby Rock!
Smile 2011-07-18
We often wanted to try dining in a resto that offers the best baby back ribs. But as we all know, they are a bit pricey, and that's why we often change our minds and look for other restos instead. But while strolling along the bay side of SM Mall of Asia, we saw Rack's well-lighted interiors that looks so inviting - this time, our gustatory senses gave in.

The resto was clean and cozy with high-open windows, comfortable wooden tables and chairs and easy-to-listen-to background music. Attentive staff will greet you as you enter and they will gladly assist you in taking your orders.

Their menu offers a wide range of special courses, but since our primary goal was to taste their much-hyped about baby back ribs, we didn't settle for anything else.

Racks, as they say, is where the best baby back ribs are! The meat was so soft and it fell off the bone easily! It melts in your mouth even! at least that's what it feels like! The barbecue sauce was just perfect for it! A small piece of meat, lotsa sauce and some macaroni with cheese -- a heavenly bite!

We also had this giant platter of carbonara with garlic bread. We loved how much creamy sauce it had. The pasta was cooked as it should be. It was perfect since we love to eat our pasta rolled in our forks. Their serving of garlic bread was also big - just enough for three voracious eaters haha! It was toasted perfectly - crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.

The fries weren't too salty -- just had the right flavor. It was cut thickly (not the ordinary cut from the fast food places we know) with 'packed' potatoes inside (that's what fries should be like). Wish there was more though =p

We really enjoyed our ribs and would love to come back for more! smile

Racks Baby
Smile 2011-06-28
It was a very exhausting week for us, and so we decided to treat ourselves one Friday night. We decided to dine at Racks Mal of Asia.

Racks is situated near the music hall of the mall, it is also near bay area so they have table and chairs outside the establishment that will surely catch the beautiful sunset at the bay. The restaurant interior is very homey, as in literally due to the home-like structure. It is as if you’re dining at your own dining room. Majority of the area is air-conditioned, but they also have a provision for those who are into smoking.

My husband ordered for a Baby Ribs, which we find tender and juicy, and the meat really falls off from its bone. This was paired with their delectable bbq sauce. I, on the other hand, ordered for the boneless one. This one was also very tender and juicy, eating it feels like it actually melts in your mouth.

Our side dishes for this sumptuous meal were potato salad and garlic mashed potato. I really love their garlic mashed potato, since it’s flavoured, you wouldn’t need to add gravy to enjoy it. The potato salad was also great, it was mixed with a light dressing, yet very flavourful.

Aside from their good food, their fast service is also the reason why we keep on coming back to them. The staff members are also attentive and in sunny disposition which will make your dining experience with them enjoyable.
