Contest! #thiscallsforribs at Earls Restaurants until June 17

Good food is something that should be shared with friends. I was invited by @TheMarcSmith to sample Earls #thiscallsforribs promotion, along with @br_webb, @foodgays, @cathybrowne, @christameister and @diannechow.  I couldn’t think of a better group of people to share this experience with. We all know each other and it was great to catch up and eat and drink together again.

DSC_0016The ribs dish at Earl’s is a customer favourite and is one the chain does very well.  The ribs are slow roasted for 6-8 hours resulting in meat that is tender and comes off the bones effortlessly. The ribs are then coated in the most delicious BBQ sauce and grilled.

For a limited time, you can try a full rack of ribs and two delicious side dishes for only $25. My dish came with coleslaw and the most delicious warm potato salad you’ve ever tasted. – baked potato, sour cream, bacon and chives are only a few things that make this salad a winner. It was so good I had seconds.

But ribs aren’t the only thing that’s going on at Earls right now. We had a chance to taste some of Earls new and innovating cocktails. Such as the Cabin Fever – Crown Royal, tawny port, ginger, pineapple, fresh lemon, and bitters over ice. Yes, that is a pinecone in my drink.



The Mad Hatter – a tea infused concoction with pear, kaffir lime syrup, and vodka. The presentation is wonderful – the cocktail comes in a steaming tea pot. It also tastes amazing.



If cocktails aren’t your cup of tea, Earls has a great selection of craft and local beers, like the Gypsy Tears Red Ale from Parallel 49 Brewery.



Also for a limited time, Earls is featuring a key lime pie that is too good to pass out. It’s a must to end your meal with.

  1. I’ll be back in Vancouver for the summer after a 9 month stay in the UK for law school. Also, I worked at Earls on Kingsway and it was the most amazing work experience and establishment I’ve ever worked at. #thiscallsforribs P.s. I must agree that the warm potato salad is the bomb. I usually skip the coleslaw and order two sides of the potato salad because its that amazing! The bacon really adds a kick to it. Guilty pleasure I tell ya! ;)
