The Chicago Rib Shack is a London favourite, serving All-American greats including a selection of mouth-watering ribs, juicy burgers and mind-blowingly good chicken - accompanied perfectly by our infamous Onion Loaf (which is still made to the same recipe)! All our ribs are smoked for hours over apple-wood, while our burgers are lovingly hand-minced. Both are served alongside dangerously good milkshakes, classic American craft beers and homemade Ice Teas and Lemonades. Our ‘Rib Shack week’ kicks off with 50% off food every Monday night - yes, you heard correctly! And if you miss that why not treat yourself to one of our many other deals including £10 fried chicken and coleslaw Tuesday | £1 per wing on Wednesday | £12 burger, drink and fries Thursday | or midweek 2-for-1 cocktails - now isn’t that tempting?
