I moved away in '87. Back then there was a place that served pretty decent ribs; it was inbetween Oakland and Bloomfield, no seats, 100% takeout, and it was right next to a decent soul food restaurant that I also can't remember the name of, the chef had a cookbook that prominently featured the use of Accent, though; "Down Home Cooking With A Touch Of Class!" I have that book stored in a box somewhere.
Anyhow, is the rib place there, or (most likely) gone? Is there another good rib place worth going to?
