Finally, Seattle has REAL BBQ!

Now you can FINALLY get good BBQ ribs in Seattle! Ribs like you get in Memphis or Kansas City. Bear Pit BBQ in Burien (hey, it's still a Seattle Zip code!) 653 SW 153rd. Having eaten BBQ from here to Charleston, I can tell you these are the only ribs in this town that can compete with the big boys. Order them "dry" with sauce on the side--I doubt you'll even touch the sauce. As for their other menu items, who cares? I'll never order anything but the ribs. Their ribs are not boiled, steamed or cooked like sloppy Joe's. They are real BBQ with a great dry rub, properly smoked and absolutely delicious. As to the recent controversy as to what would Jesus drive? I don't know. But I DO know where he would eat ribs in Seattle.
