Lord Byron's: Meet Bacolod's Favorite Back Ribs!


The Bacolodnons are proud of its world-class, local cuisine. Ask any Bacolodnon for advice on where to eat and you've got your usual answers:

While these are the common answers, there will always be a personal preference among these establishments. In Manokan Country alone, there are already so many different stalls selling chicken inasal for you to choose from-- Aida's, Nena's Rose, Nena's Rose II, etc. As for cansi, many swear by Sharyn's while I prefer Eron's Cansi because of its value for money and large serving. And when it comes to dessert, well our world-famous Calea is sure to top everyone's recommendation. Then again, there are those who prefer other newer options like Felicia's, Quino's, Tiffany's, and many others. But if you're looking for the best baby back ribs in town, every single Bacolodnon is going to tell you the same thing: LORD BYRON'S. 

If there's one thing our local cuisine has gotten right, it would definitely be this-- Lord Byron's delicious baby back ribs are the best damn ribs you'll ever get to enjoy. They're simply a local favorite that no other restaurant has ever gotten close to when it comes to taste. The perfectly grilled and broiled pieces of pork ribs smothered in a delectable and tangy Hickory glaze paired with a cup of garlic Java rice and a serving of atchara. Hmmm... The thought alone makes my mouth water.

Just in time for Masskara Festival season, Lord Byron's is set to open its second branch in Bacolod this month. Originally, they were based in an outdoor covered picnic area adjacent to the tennis court in Capitol Heights. But they've long exited that address (since 2012) and another brand has taken over the location. Lord Byron's has since moved to another Kubo-Kubo style restaurant across town, particularly the one behind Luxur Place or Teleperformance. They have also opened a branch in Dumaguete to cater to the demands of its customers there. Right now, they are preparing for their second branch situated right beside Riverside Hospital in BS Aquino Drive. It's the newly renovated building where Italia restaurant used to be for the longest time. They intend to open sometime this month, just in time for the Masskara festival highlight.

Important Disclaimer:

Lord Byron's should not be confused with another restaurant with the same logo that also sells mainly back ribs. The restaurant has taken over the original location of Lord Byron's since 2012 and has other branches in Bacolod but they are two different companies. The taste of the sauce may be similar to one another but I've discovered that there are some differences between the two:

I was contacted by the two companies because they wanted to clear the confusion between them. As an outsider, I can say that it's an issue that's too complicated to be part of. To avoid further confusion, Lord Byron's has recently changed their logo.

But just the same, it all boils down to your preference-- would you want a thicker and sweeter sauce with more fat on your back ribs? Or would you go for a huge serving of meaty back ribs with just the right amount of sauce? And again, there's always the factor of which branch is closest to you and whether or not you would be willing to travel far to enjoy the back ribs offered by the other option. At the end of the day, they both still offer the BEST tasting back ribs I've ever encountered in my life.
