HOT – Friday Lunch Special, International Hotel – 525 Boundary St, Spring Hill

It’s reminiscent of a scene out of the Flintstones – the rib cage of a small pre-historic brontosaurus-type animal, smothered in BBQ sauce, being devoured by the Fred’s, Barney’s, Wilma’s and Betty’s of the world.  All washed down with an ice cold beer (as they did in those good old cartoons). 

But no, it’s not the caveman era, nor Fred and Wilma….it’s the International Hotel on a Friday at lunch time, as ravenous patrons line up to get their paws on the $20 lunch special of 1kg of spare ribs with chips and salad and a tallie of Tooheys Extra Dry.  Oh yeahhh, does it get any better than that?!


A few tips for those who are already out the door to join the queue:  Book a table – this place is nuts on a Friday.  Secondly, book the table early – like, for midday, if not earlier.  Leave it too late and there’s a chance you’ll miss out because this whole rib deal the International Hotel’s got going in is so darn popular.

The meat falls away from the rib bone with ease.  It’s tender, juicy and is covered in a tasty BBQ sauce.  Enough said really.


If you miss out on the ribs, it’s not a huge problem – you’ll still be able to fill your belly as a pretty extensive lunch time menu aside from the rib special does exist – it’s just really hard to comment on because I didn’t even give it a sideways glance…afterall, it’s all about the ribs!!
