Artz: no free lunch

There is no free lunch. Artz proved it today. I ordered the board special, beef ribs with 3 sides. Upon my inquiry, based on previous experience, the waitress assurred me that they were not dry. But she did not tell me was that they would be 3 HUGH bones with very little meat, much gristle and skin, and salty enough to make the Dead Sea seem sweet. On the other hand, the sides were good and the iced tea was wonderful, though orphaned after the initial serving. The price: $7. Too much for what I got, to say the least. I'll stick to Artz's hamburger next time - one of the best in town. I have noticed that the food at Artz seems to overly salty lately. The owner probably thinks I'm nuts, as he seemed to indicate the last time I pointed this out to him, walking way from me with a bewildered look ... has anyone else noticed this? The salt, not the look of bewilderment ...
