Blue Ribbon BBQ, in Arlington

Disclaimer: It's been years and years since I ate anything that one could call good 'cue.

My family and I ordered the meal for four, so we could taste a lot of what they offer at Blue Ribbon. We got ribs, pulled pork, and jerk chicken. I enjoyed everything a lot. There was A LOT of food, and lots of leftovers. The ribs were pretty much the "fall off the bone" variety, and I tend to like to fight a little for the meat, but the flavor was good. Three sauces accompanied the meat and I liked the tomatoey one that had some real zip to it, and the vinegar based, too. Sides were slaw (good!), baked beans (very good!), a container of thinly sliced pickle (great on a pulled pork sandwich) and ample cornbread. I had no room for chicken, but others liked it a lot.

This may all be old hat to you Boston hounds, but this little place will get my business again. The folks working there are very nice, too. I would have loved a beer or two with this meal, but it seems that Arlington is "dry"!

I notice that one of the "specialties" is pot likker with cornbread!
