I had a serious craving for bbq ribs after watching something on a tv show where they were going on and on about bbq. So I decided to make a late dinner stop at Phil's. Despite the late hour, the place was still busy. Luckily, we had phoned in our order for take out so we didn't have to wait too long.
I was in a hurry to eat, so the pictures don't look that great. BF and I ordered a full rib dinner to share, along with our favorite sides: potato salad and macaroni salad. The ribs were as good as always. The sweet, tangy, spicy bbq sauce smothering the cooked pork that easily falls off the bone.
Btw, if you didn't already know, Phil's now sells their famous bbq sauce at Costco.
Not too long ago, I read a post about Phil's where the blogger raved about the beef ribs. In all the times I've been to Phil's, I've never tried the beef ribs. I've seen them- they are gigantic compared to the pork ribs but that is because the beef bones are so much bigger. So we decided to place a half order, which is 3 bones.
I thought the beef ribs were just as tender as the pork, but both BF and I preferred the pork. I thought the beef ones had a bit more fat pieces.
Not too long ago, we also tried the onion rings, which are humongous. Some of the biggest onion rings I've had. I took a picture, but accidentally deleted them. You can read my previous post on Phil's here.
