Hill Country for one beef rib?

chinolam Feb 2, 2010 09:31 AM

I would like to get one beef rib to go (for a small meal or snack). Not one order, not one pound ...just one beef rib. I don't know, will that be frowned upon?

    The customer is always right. I went in once just for one jalapeno cheese sausage. BTW it was awesome. I also recommend the corn pudding and pb and j cupcake. frosting is a bit sweet though

      A beef rib (what's removed in turning a rib steak into a boneless rib steak) weighs about 1/2 pound. They will happily sell you as few or as many as you want, to stay or to go. There's also sometimes a short rib, which is a much larger object.

        You actually order the beef ribs by the number not the weight cause they are too big

          They charge by weight so if you get a big one it could be a 1/4 lb. Just dont ask them to break a 100 dollar bill.

              are you going to ask for them to put soda in your cupped hands too?
