Some of the best ribs in town and the best sports bar for American sports in Bangkok
Rama IV Rd, Maha Phruttharam, Bang Rak, Bangkok, Thailand

If you're serious about ribs, The Roadhouse is the place to go in Bangkok. Mesquite wood is flown in for the proper smoky flavor. The American style smokehouse and barbecue joint occupies three floors where Surawong Road meets Rama IV. Hamburgers are always hard to come by for the American traveler and this is one solid option. Pulled pork sandwiches, Philly cheesesteaks, Texas brisket and housemade cole slaw are also offered. The Roadhouse is also a sports bar and while much of what comes into Bangkok by cable or satellite is football (soccer), rugby and cricket, this is also reliable for American football and basketball.
Watch for Buffalo wing specials on Monday nights. Foosball, a pool table, shuffleboard and the sports bar element are all on the third floor. Almost a dozen beers are on tap (including Guinness, Kilkenny, Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and more) and served cold enough to freeze the condensation on the tappers. The wine list tops 60. The bar serves a bucket of peanuts to munch on if you're in for a beer or three. This is a five-minute walk along Rama IV from Saladaeng BTS station and Silom MRT station.
