Rib Ranch Restaurant Review

: The Rib Ranch is famous for huge beef ribs that are falling-apart tender thanks to hours of slow cooking. Smoked first, then grilled, the ribs have a caramelized exterior that is something to behold and taste. Savory side dishes include terrific baked beans and fair macaroni and cheese. Brunswick stew is oddly vegetarian, with okra as well as the lima beans, but very tasty, if utterly unorthodox. Coleslaw is the crispy sort, not overly dressed with mayonnaise. The sausage is fine as are the pork ribs; smoked chicken and smoked turkey rescue those who don't want red meat. Beer is the libation of choice, but some very average wine is served.
