Since we’re members of Famous Dave’s P.I.G. Club, we received an e-mail on Monday letting us know about their newest menu item, baby back ribs. Woo-hoo!
I LOVE me some baby back ribs, so you can guess where we ended up eating on Monday night.. With a special introductory price, it wasn’t hard to convince the hubby to let us cheat this one day and eat some fattening BBQ.
We decided to share the full rack of ribs (which came with two sides), which turned out to be a good idea. As you can see from the photo above, the rack is HUGE, and it’s just as good as it looks!
I was concerned that the ribs might be too spicy, as everything here tends to be pretty hot. But the flavor of the ribs is outstanding. They use a decent amount of pepper to provide some kick to their delicious BBQ sauce, but it’s not overpowering. The ribs were nice and tender, and while not exactly “fall off the bone”, they were still easy to eat if you didn’t mind getting your hands dirty.
The sides are always a bit of a disappointment here, and this was no exception. The manager said that they might offer the ribs as a stand-alone item with no sides, and if so that’s what I’d go with.
We paid $16.99 for the full-rack as part of that introductory price, but I’m pretty sure the regular price will be around $24.99 or so. It may sound like a lot of money, but when you consider how much food you get (enough to share), it’s not a bad deal at all.
I’m getting hungry just thinking about it. 🙂
