Review Crew: Mindy’s Ribs Review

by Jennifer Wieland

I am a member of the Review Crew and I have received a gift certificate to help facilitate with this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

For this month’s Review Crew review I headed out to lunch with the kids on a day that they had a half day at school earlier this month. We went out to a favorite local place called Mindy’s Ribs in Mokena, IL (a Chicago suburb) as a nice treat for the kids. They absolutely love going here to eat! They have a huge menu with a large kid’s menu so each of them can always find something that they want to eat. I always like places like that because it makes it easier on me. Most of the time when we dine out there is at least one person whining about where we are going because they want something else. That never happens here and I mean how could it with standard kids foods like hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, chicken tenders and corn dog nuggets and  different items like a sub, Italian beef, BBQ chicken and ribs as other choices for the kids to eat. I also like that I can get amazing soups and wraps there along with the 1950’s retro decor. The other thing the kids and I like is that they also have an ice cream counter where you can get cones, shakes, malts, sodas and sundaes. Even better though they sell kiddie cones for 25¢. These are a perfect incentive to get the kids to sit, eat and behave. (Note* I am totally okay with bribing my children at times.) When they are done they each get a quarter and dash up to the ice cream case to decide on the flavor they want and then get to be big kids and pay for their own ice cream. The cones are small enough that they can finish them but big enough that they think they’ve had a really good treat. Review Crew: Mindy's Ribs

Luckily, for us going out to dine at Mindy’s is easy and inexpensive with Mindy’s Ribs is a regular restaurant on so at the beginning of each month I can easily buy some gift certificates to use throughout the month for lunch or dinner. Now, with the kids getting out of school and summer coming, heading to and grabbing some gift certificates for local places or wherever you are traveling will really help cut some costs this summer for you and the family.
