My interest in visiting Abdullah The Butcher House of Ribs & Chinese Food lied solely in the fact that I watched wrestling in the 1980s. Abdullah The Butcher was a character that scared me and interested me at the same time. Abdullah was known for being ultra-violent in the ring and every one of his matches ended up in a bloodbath. As a kid, I thought wrestling might be a cool job but I couldn’t envision being across the ring from some guy who wanted to grab a fork and jam it into my head to make me bleed.
So when I found about Abdullah The Butcher House of Ribs & Chinese Food, I knew I had to check this place out. The walls are lined with pics from wrestlers, a whole bunch of them autographed and a few of his championship belts.
I was with a few friends of mine who decided to split a whole slab of Ribs. I order a Butcher Burger as well as a Chili Dog. We order some Wings also, served Hot with fries.
The Ribs were good and I thought the BBQ sauce was outstanding. The guys seemed to like the Ribs as well as the Wings/Fries too. Just when I thought I was going to get my Butcher Burger, I’m told they are out of Burgers. They sub my Burger for 2 more Chili Dogs which my buds inherit.
I really liked the Chili Dog even though I’m not a big fan of Beans in my Chili. The Fries were of the standard frozen variety. All of us felt the Wings were the best thing we tried on the menu.
These things were hot, so much so that I was turning as red as some guy’s chest who Abdullah had just chopped. After eating, I had to get up and walk around a bit. Those Wings killed me.
I wanted to get pictures of the sign outside but it was raining. I tell one of the guys, “I’m gonna take out the camera really quick and snap a pic of the sign”. When I hear, “Why you don’t you just take a picture of me?” I turn and look, my eyes are definitely not deceiving me, it’s Abdullah The Butcher! Turns out Abdullah is a pretty cool dude, but you better be nice if you don’t want to get your head bitten.
