Starlight Cafe Greenville, NC: Where's the beef?

DaveN | Aug 5, 2011 07:13 PM

We dined there this week and ordered the short ribs. Here is the menu description:
Slow Roasted Short Ribs
served with a spicy blackstrap BBQ sauce and hoppin’ john.

I expected a rich braised short rib dish. We were served baby back pork ribs covered in sauce. When I pointed out to the server that these are baby back ribs, not short ribs, she was clueless. Am I crazy or has anyone else seen pork ribs described as above? Unfortunately, they weren't anything special. I wish that I had gone with my first instinct and ordered their wonderful strip steak instead.
