“Consistently Spectacular”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

If you don't like ribs, you probably won't enjoy MU. If you do like ribs, however, you are more than likely going to love the place, and in that case you'll probably come back often enough to appreciate the outstanding service given week in week out, and acquaint yourself with Medellin's most lovely owner/chef couple Simon and Elizabeth.
We have lived in Medellín for almost a year now and unless we are traveling we'll be at MU every Thursday for consistently tasty, juicy, meety ribs with rustic french fries and ice cold beer. The restaurant serves nothing else than ribs and fries, but it would be unjust not to mention Medellín's best mojito or the fact that Simon has yet to be unable to find whatever obscure music his faithful patrons might want to hear, so pack a healthy appetite, a playlist of favourite songs you haven't heard in a while and a wee bit of cash (oh yes, no credit cards accepted) and make your way to MU on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday (MU is closed the rest of the week). You will not be disappointed.

“F****** good ribs”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We live in Medellin and are regulars at Mu. There is nothing not to love about MU (that is if you like ribs off cause).
If I was a food critic I would give Mu 5 stars, one for the ribs, one for the mjoitos, one for the atmosphere and one star for each of the owners.
The chef go through great length to get really good ribs from his butcher - there is no questions that at Mu they have pride in what they do. Yes they might run out of ribs, but thats the price you'll have to pay for fresh ribs (however I don't think we have ever experienced them running out, and we have been there MANY times).
Be aware that they only serves ribs and french fries and they only accept cash.

“Excellent ribs, and a good experience all around”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

As you know all they serve here is ribs. They are excellent, and the ambiance is chill yet not cheap. Make sure you don't "over order" as I did - even the small plate is huge. Plus, they bring nice tortillas with delicious guacamole and other dips before the ribs, so you'll fill up on those.

“fukin good ribs”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

We were recommended to try mu ribs and they were fantastic. The place was packed but we got our food quickly. The service was fast but relaxed at the same time. Get there early as sometimes the ribs run out. I spoke to the English cook, and he said all the ribs are daily fresh and our ovens are only so big. When 3 tables of 20 walk in the door, along with the other 10 tables, now and then we are going to run out. Thats fresh food.
The Rib prices are good value, remembering it is for 2 people or more, and the Mojitos are great
