BBQ Short Rib Cheese Soup

More please…is the first thought you will have with your first bite of tender short rib, crispy smoked bacon, zesty green scallions all with creamy dairy notes of Bongards® Yellow American Loaf and the essence of sweet BBQ flavors.


Short rib is an American staple, appearing on 10.3% of menus nationwide. The dish has increased by 4% over the past year, and you can find it most commonly paired with onion 29% of the time, tomato 16%, and chili/soup 3%. That’s why our concept incorporates both the onions and the soup for a rich and hearty combo.
