Group lunch at Racks
Smile 2012-08-15

 

 

We have our lunch in Racks after a day of job hunting with my friends. The four of us decided that, since we are very hungry, we can simply share or split the bill for our lunch. And that's exactly what we did. We ordered Chicken and Grilled Spare Ribs and we were fully satisfied because it was enough for the four of us. Plus it was delicious!

RACKS N ROLL
Smile 2011-12-30
When it comes to grilled dishes, I always come here at Racks. Though they offer a bit pricey food, the quality of their meals are worth it. They also have a very cozy ambiance perfect for a simple dining with friends or family. Among my favourite dishes are their Southern Fried chicken and bangus meal.

Birthday party at Racks Magallanes. Best ribs in
Just OK 2011-06-08
With their Racks Original Regular Barbecue Sauce on their Beef Ribs. The ribs are delicious! The Carbonara was good too. Sometimes, I find some carbonara's either bland or too tiring to eat ("nakakaumay"). But this one is tastes just right. The Ceasar Salad was okay. The mash potato was tasty,smooth with just a dash of salt and pepper just the way I like it. The Cheese with Brocolli was good too. Perhaps because I love both the cheese and brocolli=)

 

The service was good. The waitresses were very attentive. The place was clean. The price is within the right range. Ribs are really pricey but I guess that is expected.

A Good (and Tasty) Amount of Ribbings
Smile 2010-10-26
Friday night. After the wife picks me up from the office (she drives the car because she works farther than me – and she gets her parking reimbursed), we immediately switch on our restaurant tracker mode and think of a place to head out to and get some dinner. The plan initially was to meet up with a few friends but being that traffic was pretty much at a standstill all over, we decided to just quietly spend dinner the two of us over at the Paseo De Magallanes. That moment, I knew what I wanted so I did a few seconds of convincing the wife to head out for Racks. The rest they say is history.

The skinny.

The branch they have here at Magallanes is well lighted to say the least, no scrimping on the electric bill being done here. It’s façade is a mix of wood painted in white and panes of glasses. Think old school window sills – American type. You can see thru the dining area on the first level even if you are seated outside. The grill is encased in a glass housing so if you are inside the premises, you can actually sit at a spot where you get perfect view of your food as it gets cooked. Props to the staff taking care of our orders, he was pretty light on his feet and quick to assist and take our orders. Our orders consisted of a brick of onion rings (how the hell the put it like that and fried it, we don’t have a clue) and half a slab of pork ribs (which was good for two according to the one who took our orders). The onion rings were initially nice – except that after a half hour or so, we were dealing with a tangled, soggy mess of stringy onions. The portion had to be at least good for 4 maybe 5. The ribs – oh the ribs – you can cut it with a fork literally. It’s that soft. A dab of their own styled barbecue sauce and we are transported to a really good smokey place of rib-tastic proportions. It came with two sides, I chose their potato salad and the wife chose the shredded corn.

The verdict:

Racks is not an everyday-place that you come to and eat dinner at. You visit them on a semi regular basis and not on a regular one. You really can’t over do it seriously. One, the price is a bit on the expensive side but when you realize that their servings are more than ample, you would begin to understand the value you are paying for. Two, it’s just not plain right to eat ribs everyday. I’ll take every other day thank you. Would we come back? You can bet every damn falling-off-the-bones ribby goodness we will be.
