Sunday Rib Man Ribs

Palms on Isla Mujeres

A weekend tradition for us when we are on Isla Mujeres is lunch from the Sunday Rib Man. This talented cook (and mighty fine dancer) serves the best ribs around on Saturdays as well. But we’ve been ordering from his simple tienda since 2005 when Sunday was his only day of operation and the name has stuck. The first time I tasted his ribs I was staying at Suites Los Arcos around the corner on Hidalgo. The helpful staff at the front desk offered to fetch them for me when they knew that I was going to be away from Centro on a day excursion. This is one of the many kind gestures made by the wonderful residents of the little Island.

So the name is one contradiction in terms and here’s another-we don’t actually order his ribs but his boneless pork that he adeptly chops into strips so that they appear to be ribs. The strips fit perfectly into the stack of mini tortillas that he serves with every order. The other fixings include a cole slaw, a broiled white onion and a couple of sauces; along with the customary lime of course.Donna's Isla photos to March 4 006
I don’t know what size the order was in this picture captured on a previous trip, but recently we ordered a kilo for $180 pesos. Four of us ate til our heart’s content for approximately $4.50 per person.

We don’t know what he marinates them in or what he adds while they are cooking on the open fire, we only know that they are the most delicious ribs on Isla. A simple work space

The Sunday Rib Man is located near the corner of Matamoros and Rueda Medina in Centro on Isla Mujeres. There is no sign…just use your nose to locate the smoke. If you are there on a daytrip it is very close to the ferry.
