Montana’s Cookhouse is having a promotion where you can order All You Can Eat Ribs any time you want. Normally, I think this would be just on one day of the week, but they have it everyday right now. The weird thing is that, I don’t think the prices are listed online.
We got to the restaurant, and it was kind of dead. All You Can Eat Ribs cost $24.99 – $26.99 depending on what kind of ribs you want. We all ordered the Pork Back Ribs for $26.99. They also have three flavours to choose from – Apple Butter, Honey Garlic, and some Texas Rub. You also get your choice of two sides. Your choice of Rice Pilaf, Mashed Potatoes, or Baked Potato, and your choice of Corn Bread or Baked Beans.
I ordered the Apple Butter Ribs with the Rice, and Corn Bread. It actually took a very long time to come out. We each got a full rack to start. Being an All You Can Rib noobie, I was told not to eat my sides, because they just take up space. And the goal is to eat as many ribs as you can. But, I didn’t listen. The rice was really good, and I finished it all. I actually wanted to order more, but the goal was to eat ribs (the expensive part!). The corn bread was also the best corn bread I’ve ever had. I’m used to really dry and hard corn bread, but this was a lot softer, moister, buttery-er, and sweeter than any one I’ve had. I liked it.
Now to the actual meat of the review. The ribs were awesome. A lot better than the ones at BBQues. It was still fall of the bone tender, but the meat was still very juicy and saucy. The Apple Butter by far is the best flavour. After finishing up our first racks, we ordered more ribs. We asked for a just a 1/2 rack of Honey Garlic for the three of us who wanted more ribs. But, after waiting 15 or so minutes, she brought us 6 half racks…The Honey Garlic wasn’t nearly as good as the apple butter, so we just ate our three half racks and left the rest. We thought we would be able to take the ones we were working on home, but for some reason our waitress said we couldn’t. My friends sweared they let us before, but not anymore apparently?
We ordered more Apple Butter ribs, and they came faster. So in the end they took away 2 half-racks of Honey Garlic. What a waste if they threw it away. Might as well just pack it up and let us take it home. I’m not too sure what it was about the Honey Garlic ribs, but it just didn’t taste nearly as good as the Apple Butter.
So overall, my experience was good. The wait for the food was long, but worth the wait. I don’t think I’d be doing AYCE ribs for a long time, because I was stuffed, and that was way too much meat for one day. I think by the end of it, you have to eat 2 racks of ribs to make it worth it. I did not get a meat headache.
