R&B Ribs and Burgers


Ribs & Burgers

Original Burger with Cheese and Bacon $14

Burger Rating 10

Shop 94-96 3 Separation St, Northcote

Dining Accomplices – Angela H, Theo & Polly

The Original

160g char grilled beef patty, basted, iceberg lettuce, tomato, red onion, fill pickles, pink  & bbq sauces,  on a fresh sesame see bun
It was wonderful.  Char grilled, juicy, meaty, ticked all the boxes.  Juice dripping down your arms. Rich chunky steaky meat. Heavenly sauces. Fresh salad.  Just magnificent.  My only criticism was that the bacon was on the salty side, and lost the bacon flavor being overpowered by salt.  Aside from the salty bacon, it was just magnificent.

Theo went face first into his Wagyu burger and emerged sauce faced and victorious

225g premium Wagyu beef, tomato, spanish onions, pickle, onion rings, and sauces $18

Ange had the 3 mini burgers – one lamb, one chicken, one beef $17

She said the lamb was disappointing, the beef was good, and the chicken was delicious.

As we had been watching Man VS Food Nation all afternoon, we took it a step too far ordering a large chips and a serve of the pork riblets. $19

The ribs were perfect.  Not fatty or oily. Sweet, fresh, charred and sticky. Yummo!

I loved the condiment counter that customers can help themselves to

A fine selection for the table

And of course – the aftermath

We ate so much we couldn’t see straight.  It was epic. It was delicious. And I can’t wait for the next one..

The serving was a little erratic – 10 minutes between the first person’s dish arriving and the last persons. But they did apologise…

  1. Hi,

    Just wanted to let you know about our newish restaurant / café that we opened in Prahran. It is a sister café to a fairly established Port Melbourne venue. Prahran has great daytime café fare with a few extras.

    We specialise in the REAL American BBQ – from Maple smoked Pork Ribs to 10 hour Hickory smoked and Dry Rubbed Beef Brisket. Our American BBQ menu was around long before the current craze. In addition we have a dedicated Paleo menu, which is extremely rare in Melbourne.
    Our chef is a protege of Iron Chef Sakai. He ran 2 of Chef Sakai’s restaurants in Japan.

    We would love to invite you to try out the café. If interested please let me know if you would like to come for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Invitation is for your and a friend.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Best regards,



    • Hi Greg.
      What an exciting offer. Thank you! I will find a willing companion and come to sample you’re wares.
      Thank you kindly,
