The Purple Pig - Very Short & Negative Review

Fwagra | Mar 5, 2006 08:30 PM

I went on Friday night with 3 friends to this Richmond Street hole which claims to have award-winning ribs.

Of course, the awards were given by the Shitzville Chamber of Commerce in a town that, otherwise, has no ribs at all.

Bottom line: Not good.

Firstly, this place is dingy beyond belief. It smelled.

Second, the ribs were not good. You can make better at home. Just buy better meat. Near the end of the rack especially, these ribs got pretty strange. The bones and meat morphed into one big, sinewy, overcooked piece of leather.

Their "award-winning sauce" was a dead-ringer for Horne's BBQ sauce.

Don't even get me started on the "Caesar salad". (I added bacon bits for an extra dollar.)

Anyhow, these are my two cents. I've had a very busy weekend of mediocre eating. I also hit the Pickle Barrel with family, but I'll spare you.
