I started the Bacolod Blog Series in 2015 featuring home-grown restaurants and must-visit places as we wish to share with you our new discoveries here in Bacolod. After 1.5 years, Val and I decided to bring it back as we share to you how much we love Bacolod. We will be featuring the delicious and affordable food discoveries and options and you can find out where do locals eat in Bacolod.
First off, Back Ribs.
When you visit Bacolod City, you may notice several establishments offering Bacolod's Back Ribs. Though may look almost the same, there is one that truly stands out - Lord Byron's Back Ribs.
They offer back ribs in generous sizes at a very affordable price. It comes with garlic rice and atchara.
|Back Ribs - Php 159|
The sauce is really good and the meat is really tender. No doubt why Papa likes it so much.
Local's secret tip: You can ask for more sauce and more atchara for FREE. :)
Aside from Backribs, they also offer freshly prepared potato wedges which are a perfect match to your back ribs.
|Potato Wedges - Php 59|
Aside from our 2 favorites, they also serve Cansi Soup (which is popular here in Bacolod), Sizzling Bangus (perfect for the upcoming Lenten season) and Pork Sisig which is also one of their specialties.
|Cansi Soup - Php 159|

How was our experience?
We visited their newest branch near Riverside College. Val and I were with our friends Jelica and Kat.
|Visiting with friends Jelica (in blue) and Kat|
The staff is very nice and helpful. Though they get a lot of customers during rush hour, the tables have ample spaces in between so it wouldn't be so crowded. Since it was Jelica's first time to visit, we decided to try different dishes.
3 orders of Back Ribs
1 order of Sizzling Bangus
1 order of Kansi Soup
1 order of Potato Wedges
Drinks (Soft drinks + Iced Tea)
And our biggest surprise - the bill was less than Php 1,000 That's good for 4 persons.
So, are we visiting again? Yes
Are you recommending Lord Bryon's Back Ribs to friends? Yes
Just another Local's secret tip: Don't be mistaken with the signs, logos and the name. Lord Byron's has only 3 branches: two in Bacolod and one in Dumaguete.
