Can anyone recommend a truly good place for pork ribs in New Haven County? Sit down or take-out-only is fine.
We like Johnny's in Stratford on Honeyspot Road (a dive where you used to only be able to get ribs on Thursday nights and only if you placed your order in advance by calling the secret phone number to the payphone on the wall--I've since heard that now you can get their ribs every night of the week and that they finally bought a real phone with a published number!--they also make a mean swordfish). And Ash Creek Saloon in Black Rock (Bridgeport). And, we used to get good takeout ribs at a wing place (of all places; it wasn't a chain at the time) on the post road in West Haven years ago but it has changed hands a million times and no longer does the ribs. Then, I had incredible ribs at this place in Orange where Mai Thai now is, but that disappeared too.
BUT. . . any place in New Haven County? Not a fan of Rib House in East Haven (although I like their onion brick). They must fall off the bone!
Sorry if I missed a thread, but I searched first and only found generic BBQ threads. I'm speaking specifically about pork ribs here.
