For starters, there is a choice of sweet or spicy chicken wings, lamb sausages, and an interesting dish of fried cheddar cheese coals with sour cream.
As you would expect, Ribs of Prague has the art of BBQ cooking down to a science. Once the meat has been expertly prepared, it is cooked on a huge cylindrical iron BBQ standing in the main restaurant area, outside the kitchen; you can see the flames from the charcoal grill and whispers of smoke, somehow making the food taste highly authentic.
Ribs of Prague has a rawness about it, a kind of warm industrial style. In line with this, huge gleaming cylinders of beer occupy one corner of the restaurant. This is the famous Czech tank beer. It is Pilsner Urquell and it is stunningly fresh and foamy. Accompanies the food perfectly.
Other drinks include a various wines, Champagnes, a wide range of spirits, and soft drinks. All drinks are inexpensive for downtown Prague.
Overall, Ribs of Prague has a happy, Saturday night kind of atmosphere. There is a general hubbub of people enjoying themselves. The food is delicious and portions are generous. The waiters are attentive and the service is fast.
If you go for the ribs, you may well rank them the best you have ever eaten.
