Meet your meat
Chow down on these flame-licked ribs and meats, good ol’ Americana style.
Here, meats are priced by weight, from spare ribs to brisket to pulled pork and more – great for small eaters who don’t want that big a portion, as well as big eaters who’re always going for seconds. Wash these down with their hipster beers like Brooklyn Lager or Red Hook.

Dining at Camp Kilo Charcoal Club is like going for a backyard barbecue party of an badass old friend (who happens to cook, like, reaaally well). Mingles around the open air seats while whole hogs are roasted at the spit or drink up at the garden bar; even the desserts – from the S’mores cheesecake to toasted marshmallows – pay homage to the camp-themed eatery.

NEXT: Naughty Nuri’s →
A must-visit in Bali, Indonesian franchise Naughty Nuri’s brings its specialties to Singapore. It mightn’t be by the shimmering beaches like it is in Ubud, but all that won’t matter once you dig into their Warung’s smoky BBQ pork ribs.

NEXT: MeatSmith →
With a name like MeatSmith, you know they’re serious about their meat. Offering up only the most premium cuts of meat smoked Southern-style, from pork spare ribs to beef brisket to fried chicken, this badass eatery is the dreams of carnivores. As an ode to typical American diners, the casual dining space is raucous yet laid back – just what we love about such joints.

NEXT: Dallas Restaurant & Bar →
Slow-cooked for hours to achieve perfectly succulent ribs, you won’t be able to stop at one (one rack, we mean). Challenge not only your stomach capacity but your spice tolerance as well – the brave can opt for the Fiery Ribs, while the Berri Ribs features a lightly tangy berry BBQ glaze.

NEXT: Morganfield’s →
Morganfield’s signature Sticky Ribs got us licking every last bit of smokiness off our fingers just thinking about it – fall-off-the-bone tender meat richly slathered in almost gelatinous, smoky BBQ sauce. Oh, and special mention goes out to their cornbread. Best. Cornbread. Ever.
NEXT: Tony Roma’s →
Any American would be familiar with the age-old household name Tony Roma’s, hailing from Miami since the 1970s. Their cult following are testament to their superb American fare – abandon all attempts to hide your primal side and dig right into their St Louis Rib Sampler, served with a variety sauces – the sweet-savoury Carolina Honeys, the fruity Smoky Apple, the satisfyingly spicy Red Hots, and of course the good old BBQ sauce.
NEXT: Red Eye Smokehouse →
The interior is minimalist and cosy, so it’s kind of like a cafe and a smokehouse made a baby. Both their meats like ribs, pork knuckle and beef brisket, ordered from a glorious heated display case, are as good as their less conventional sides like broccoli salad.
