The best ribs in town! Come to Pendergast for American style BBQ in a cozy Amsterdam neighborhood restaurant.
I may be American, but I don’t profess to be an expert on ribs. Tacos, maybe. But I can tell you that Pendergast does some really terrific American style BBQ and their ribs are some of the best in Amsterdam.
The meat truly falls off the bone and is full of flavor. And be sure to try the brisket too, it was divine! Dare I say, maybe even better than the ribs. The sides like baked beans and mac and cheese are also favorites, but the meats are the star of the show.
Pendergast is a new neighborhood restaurant in the Westerpark area. It has been open for about five months and in that time has garnered praise from many, including my friends who know their vittles. I first became curious about Pendergast after seeing Deepa Paul say it was tasty on Twitter. Then Miss Amsterdam Foodie and I made a pilgrimage there (it is within walking distance from both of our houses ha) and were both quite impressed. Since then we have sent more friends to Pendergast Smokehouse and so far everyone has been delighted.
The restaurant is small and popular, so be sure to book a table in advance. The staff is very friendly and will mix up a tasty cocktail or recommend a wine or local beer to pair with your meal.
As you can probably tell, Pendergast is a new favorite. Check it out if you haven’t done so already!
