'Cue in Conshy

Jim Tarantino | Mar 8, 2003 01:16 PM

What I thought was just another neighborhood bar in Conshohocken turns out to be a real local find for ribs and smoked chicken. The Conshy Rib House on 600 E. Hector Street in Conshohocken is a spin off of the Bridgeport Rib House where they do the actual smoking. Décor wise it is vintage corner bar with ample beer mirrors and Nascar legends on the wall. Now the food. We ordered the BBQ sampler, which is a heaping platter of 2 baby backs, 2 spare ribs, and 1 thigh, 1 leg, and 1 breast of chicken, and 2 sides. What I’m use to in the Delaware Valley is parboiled ribs that are “finished” on the grill. Not here, they’re marinated with a dry rub and slow smoked over hickory and oak at 225o.
The food comes hot from their holding oven, the baby backs were fall off the bone with a nice balance of smoke and BBQ sauce, maybe it was the time of day but the spare ribs could have stayed in the smoker a little longer but those spares will blow any one else’s away locally. The chicken was moist, smoky and plump. The leg was a miniature turkey leg. Baked beans were done right and the potato salad was from scratch.
They also have live music with a fair amount of blues, which flips this place into a real roadhouse mentality.

Here’s their web site:
