Iron Maiden drummer Nicko McBrain’s Florida-based rib joint called Rock N Roll Ribs has been named “Best Ribs 2012” by New Times Broward-Palm Beach. Said the news site, “When pondering what makes a good rack of ribs, two things naturally come to mind — heavy metal and Coral Springs. Rock N Roll Ribs is run by Nicko McBrain, drummer for legendary band Iron Maiden.
Though the interior of the restaurant looks more like an Iron Maiden shrine in a teenaged boy’s bedroom than a rib joint, this place knows barbecue. The coma-inducing combination of crispy charred pork slathered in the restaurant’s sticky, sweet, and tangy barbecue sauce is a recipe for one totally bitchin’ rack.” Opened two and a half years ago, the rib shack features dishes like “Lazy Roadie Wings” and “Vic’s Mozzarella Sticks” and “Security Staff Stuffed Potato.”
