Coral Springs , FL-I was recently covering some assignments in South Florida and when the opportunity to go have lunch at Rock N’ Roll Ribs I jumped at the chance . I have been an Iron Maiden fan since I first saw the film ” Live After Death ” in the movie theater as a teenager. They have been firmly implanted in my psyche ever since . One of my proudest moments is when I saw that the designer of their mascot Eddie ( Derek Riggs ) did the logo on one of the artists albums I did the cover photo( Ethan Brosh ) .To say I was a fan is an understatement of the facts .
In 2009 Nicko opened Rock N’ Ribs in Coral Springs, Florida .The motto and tagline is ” Where BBQ Meets Metal ” and that is pretty true . The whole restaurant is covered is Iron Maiden memorabilia, from platinum and gold records to autographed drum heads and pictures and autographed photos from many of Nicko’s rockstar friends .
The staff was friendly and courteous and the food was America comfort food for the most part . Planet friendly serving paper straws and to be honest giving back to the community . A resident of Boca Rotan he could have sat on his laurels but he is owner of a business , which mean employees and supporting their families and paying taxes to support his community .This man is a rock star and not just in the musical sense .
If you are ever in South Florida make sure you put this on your bucket list , you never know who you might see . The official website http://www.rocknrollribs.com
