Wagner's Ribs in Porter, NW Indiana

Steveh | Feb 16, 2007 07:50 PM

Just moved from NYC to NW Indiana, tonight we ried Wagner's Ribs. I have to say, pretty darn good. First off, really great wings, even my wife who doesn't like wings had to admit they were killer. Outstanding.

Ribs were tasty and fell off bone. Yes, someone mentioned they're beef ribs at this place. Not quite as fattylicious as sometimes possible with pork -- but very good. Mashed potatoes/gravy side was excellent, though barely room temp (I'll let them slide this time), cole slaw was nothing special, griddle corn cakes (good). Will definitely will go back and try other things.

Nice and diverse selection of bottled beer.

Someone mentioned that this place is pricy. Not really. A couple can easily share a full rack ($16) and a few apps and walk away feeling ridicu-stuffed.
