Marin's Best Kept Secret

Melanie Wong | Sep 27, 200303:10 AM

. . . is how Franks Bar-B-Que bills itself. I tried it last week at the Thursday night San Rafael Farmers Market (done for the season). Decent cornbread, good potato salad (lots of celery, pickles in an unsweetened mustardy dressing), palatable sauce ("hot" was mildly spicy), but unfortunately, the spare ribs themselves were dreck. Parboiled into oblivion with no texture or flavor of their own. This was a dumper, straight into the garbage can.
