Training at Racks
Smile 2013-10-07
I recently conduct a training at Racks in El Pueblo, Pasig City. I'm glad that Racks have big space that they can offer venue for meetings and trainings.

 

This is one of their function room. They said that this function room can accommodate 25 people. However, we were only 20 in the team and the space is quite small for us. We had a hard time setting up the projector because of the limited space. During presentations, participants were quite shy to go to the comfort room because there's no other door except the one infront.

 

The tables are set up upon the start of the training provided with utensils so they when they serve the meals, they dont need to set it up.

 

One of the snacks served is their bolognese. Served with two pieces of garlic bread, the bolognese is indeed delicious and tasty.

 

Of course, it's not complete if you will not have a taste of their popular baby back ribs. Served with their own special sauce, the meat literally falls off from its bones. The meat is very tender and tasty.

The function room's rate varies on the size of the function room you need and how long you will use it. All rates for the function rooms are consumable.

Longtime ribs
Just OK 2013-04-19

 

I think that Racks restaurant has both risen and fallen in the popularity list of restaurants for the past several years. When I was young, there were a lot of Sunday family lunches and dinners spent in this restaurant. Those were the years that Racks was at its peak, they had very tender and delicious tasting ribs that matched great with their signature sauce!smile

It is a bit disappointing that Racks doesn't serve that same quality taste that they had before. What remains the same is the interior setting of their restaurants. Good thing that their service is still great.

Rack(s) with you!
Smile 2013-01-19

 

 

Last week I spend my time with Ayen at Racks El Pueblo.

I just finished worked and she fetched me at the office.

I was so touched by that move of my girlfriend that is why I decided to treat her at Racks for a sumptuous dinner.

We ordered some Racks Baby Ribs for PHP 478 and some Racks Classic Pork Ribs for PHP 371.

Their meals included two side dishes with them.

I chose their potato salad and their buttered corn and carrots.

We also ordered extra rice for our meals.

The food was amazing!

The ribs were very delicious and juicy on the inside.

The servings were huge as well.

We were satisfied with the outstanding dishes they served us and the way they treated us with so much care.

I would surely go back for more of that Racks!

Racks Ribs
Smile 2012-12-07

 

Ribs

If you have been craving for delicious ribs but with a minimum budget, I think Racks is the place to be. Whenever i crave for baby back ribs but my budget can't afford those high end restaurants, I usually end up having one at Racks. I get the same quality and taste I have been craving for baby back ribs plus racks has their own sauce to go with it. The meat is to tender that easily falls from the bones.

I'll go for RACKS
Smile 2012-11-06

Racks is one of my favorite restaurants, I must say. I used to come here with my sister and parents because it always satisfies our cravings for American cuisines. If you haven’t been to Racks, I would recommend for you to visit and try to order their Baby Back Ribs and as you will have it through the meal, you will surely not get disappointed. For me, Racks offers the best ribs within the vicinity. The place was quite small for the number of guests coming in from time to time. Sometimes, you still have to wait for minutes to be seated. I hope that the management will be able to see this issue. Damage to the budget is usually from 400.00 php to 600.00 php. Way much higher compared to usual rate of casual dining, but I did not regret coming over.

Fries @ Racks
Smile 2012-10-26

 

My friend treat me for meryenda since I accompany her in buying a new cell phone in Megamall. We ate at Racks nearby because there were no seats available at Racks in Megamall and it is also along the way going to her house. I ordered fries but she ate rice and chicken. It was delicious because I've tried munching on the chicken.

Caesar Salad
Smile 2012-09-29
I was really satisfied when I dined in at Rack’s. It’s one of the best restaurants in J. Vargas Avenue in El Pueblo Ortigas Center, Pasig City. They have lots of culinary delights to offer. The last time I went here, I ordered their Classic Caesar Salad which costs me around 200.00 php and as I have it through the meal, I was not disappointed. Although the rates are quite high, I would still highly recommend dining at Racks because it is worth it! Despite their higher rates, I would still want to go back to Racks in Ortigas, Pasig City!

Racks baby Racks!
Smile 2012-08-31
I definitely recommend Racks in El Pueblo Complex, Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. I loved their famous Racks Baby Ribs because it's juicy and truly delicious and appetizing. Aside from their excellent food, I commend this restaurant’s service because they are all attentive to their customers. I really don't regret coming here, it always satisfied me. I will definitely go back to this restaurant and bring my family so that they can experience the great foods of Racks.

Racks.
Smile 2012-07-31
Racks is one of those restaurants na kahit mawala pa ng matagal na panahon tapos ay ibinalik nila, ay magugustuhan pa din ng mga tao. I mean, people still knew how wonderful the dishes are in racks kahit na they were out in the industry for many years. Still, like many people, I am also glad na Racks finally is back! And finally, I can get a taste of their rib sauce whenever I want to. And their tender baby back ribs is just something I cannot resist! It is so soft na you would not need any knife to cut its parts! Seriously, no exaggeration! smile I love it!

Rack on!
Smile 2012-07-18

 

Racks is a must-try restaurant in El Pueblo Complex, Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. I am a big fan of their side dishes and appetizers like, Mac and Cheese, Buttered Vegetables, Corn on Cob and Potato Salad which costs sixty pesos up to one hundred four or five depending on the serving (PHP 60- PHP 104/105). The last time I ate there, I tried their their Racks Classic Pork Ribs and Chicken and Belgian Fries and they taste awesomely delicious. I wanted to try their Classic Apple Pie Ala Mode for dessert but I didn’t get the chance because I was so full that time. I will the next time I come back to Racks in El Pueblo Complex, Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City!

   Beef Ribs

   Corn and Carrots

   Mac and Cheese

Price Php 322 for Beef Ribs, Php 110 for Mac and Cheese and Php 110 for corn and carrots

Description Racks' original beef ribs with a side of creamy mac and cheese and sweet, buttered corn and carrots.

Personal Review Hubby gets weird food cravings sometimes. This time, he saw an ad of Racks in the newspaper and announced that we were going to eat at Racks. We were supposed to meet his friends that night at Discovery Ortigas so to be more convenient, we headed off to the Racks branch in El Pueblo Complex.

We ordered the beef ribs (saw it on the other diner's table, LOL), macaroni and cheese and my favorite corn and carrots. Hubby said that Racks is known for ribs but I beg to differ lol Our food came, it was all served together. The beef ribs were good, meat was almost fall off the bone but a bit dry for me. It was still good though. The macaroni and cheese was not the regular instant type that tasted like flour. The noodles were firm and the cheese sauce was plentiful but not that plenty to make 'suya'. I ate this in place of rice lol The corn and carrots were also good, sweet corn and cooked in butter, yummy! This is how I like my corn and carrots served. The butter taste was really good, no need to add salt lol

As a whole, the meal was heavy on the stomach. I enjoyed the beef ribs all the more because of the great side dishes we also ordered. Plus, the price is pretty decent for a decent piece of ribs. Still, I know where the BEST ribs are lol

Oh, as for parking, no need to stress that the only space is in front of the resto, they have ample parking behind Racks, at the El Pueblo complex and they have guards to help make sure your vehicles are secure lol

Racks :)
Smile 2012-07-09
Racks has been my favorite rib place since I was a kid. Almost all my birthday celebrations as I grow up were held at Racks so you can say that I really am a fan of their baby back ribs. Whenever my family eat at this restaurant, I would order the same thing over and over again. Baby back ribs have captured my heart and I don't plan to change my menu. However, the price is really not that okay since it can be a bit expensive. But it's okay because we do not dine here always. So still, I'm a fan! Racks forever! smile

   rib and chicken

 the logo

Price: P1,487.00

Description: A platter of fried chicken and 2 pieces baby back ribs.

Personal Review: I remember eating here for the first time when my team hit 2 million revenue for a month and now here I am with my family introducing them the famous baby back ribs of Racks. We had our family dinner at Racks El Pueblo after visiting my mom's place in Mandaluyong.

Upon entering we were assisted by the staffs to have a good seat. They do not have a chair for my kid which is a bit disappointing. We were given menus and my hubby and I picked the Rib and Chicken platter since Kurt is not eating other than fried chicken.

It was served in a few minutes. The ribs never fails me, it is still very tender yet very tasty. I love the matching sauce in Racks as well, you can choose how spicy you want it to be.

The place is good and the service is great. The price is very expensive but it is worth it.

More than just ribs
Smile 2012-03-28
As a true blue carnivore, I can say that no man has resisted Racks' baby back ribs. It literally falls off the bone and the glaze... it would be too cruel to resist. But what's good in this place, other than its ribs, are the side dishes. Mashed potato, Broccoli in cheese, chili con carne, and the list just goes on. These are the things that make up most of the meal at Racks. And even without the Ribs, these guys can hold off on their own.
