Had the best ribs I've ever had in my life in Atlanta.

The place is called Daddy D'z. Looks kinda run down from the outside and it isn't in the best part of town (near the Braves baseball stadium) but who cares when the ribs are this good! When you walk in you notice that the walls are impregnated with the smell of smoke-- like you walked into a kitchen in some third world country. The ribs had this beautiful red lacquer color on them that only long, slow smoking can produce. Perfectly cooked-- tender but not falling off the bone tender-- no small feat considering they cook regular full slabs of ribs. No whimpy babybacks here! Make sure ask for sauce on the side so that you can try the ribs without sauce. You may decide it doesn't need any. The sauces come in mild and spicy. They're okay but I've had better on many occasions. For ~$20 you get a full slab and one large side order. Since we got two slabs (more than enough food for 4 of us) we got to pick two sides. We got mac & cheese and green beans, both of which were quite forgettable. Nonetheless, the ribs are memorable.
