Finally tried Leesburg's Mighty Midget ribs

and they lived up to the advance hype. These are meaty, dry-rubbed monsters. Nothing "baby" about them. The lady at the window told me they were averaging around three pounds per rack and I have no reason to doubt her.

One rack -- enought for two people -- is $23.95 and comes with fries and slaw, but since I was taking mine to go the lady kindly offered me beans instead of fries. The beans were excellent! Their sauce has a complex mix of flavors, definitely including cumin and hot pepper.

Also, they reheat extremely well -- 30 minutes in a 350 oven was perfect.

Finally, I got there right when they opened at 12 noon on Saturday. I suspect the ribs are gone by the middle of the afternoon.
