Rib Heaven

Oh! It is time for the RIB HEAVEN at Third Wave Cafe in Albert Park! This is a rare treat and one that feeds family and friends of all kinds. This ABSOLUTE BEAST of a MEAL is FILLED TO THE BRIM with meat! Think of a GIGANTIC HSP (Halal Snack Pack) but featuring mountains of freshly smoked ribs and meat on top of chips!

The Rib Heaven was a past special from Third Wave in but now is BACK for DECEMBER 2022 due to popular demand.

What is in Third Wave’s Rib Heaven?

Oh get ready for this! The Rib Heaven features a stack of slow-smoked ribs. This stack features LAMB and PORK ribs, delicately placed between to pedestals that hold the GIGANTIC beef rib that sits aloft the whole meal. This beef rib is SO BIG that some people get confused by it, comments like “I’ve never seen a beef rib THAT BIG before” can be read in our social media posts about this meal.

The Rib Heaven by Third Wave also features a platter of chips that has been topped with sauce, but also then smoked PULLED beef Brisket. Usually when people think of a pulled meat they think “PULLED PORK,” but NO! Our Genius chefs have smoked a beef brisket to the point it is so soft it can be PULLED! This pulled brisket then is placed on the chips and then smothered with more bbq sauce!

Oh, this seriously delicious meal wows both families and friends alike and is one of our specials that just sells itself.

The Rib Heaven by Third Wave is available only for December 2022 and may be back in the future if it continues to be this popular! We recommend you book your table NOW otherwise you might miss out! Book your table by clicking here.


Third Wave has become a religious experience on the Melbourne restaurant scene. Since opening in 2010, we have cemented a reputation as a great neighborhood cafe with a loyal breakfast and lunch crowd. People come from far and wide to enjoy our exceptional coffees and vast breakfast & lunch menu. Then by night, we transform into a bustling BBQ joint, inspired by the classic American smoke houses of the deep south. Today we are proud to be recognised as one of the best American BBQ experiences you’ll have outside of the US.


Third Wave Cafe started as a trendy inner Melbourne café with an aim to grow and so we did. After 9 years, we are one of Melbourne’s favourite American BBQ restaurants with a huge emphasis on slow-smoked meats and burgers.
