fuzzy510 Posted April 23, 2010 Share Posted April 23, 2010 So there's really no thread on this place? Really?Just outside the Rhode Island Avenue Metro station, there's an old school bus that's been retrofitted to serve as a food truck, and from this bus come what are, for my money, the greatest pork ribs in the Metro area.They're smoky, meaty, a little fatty, and overall just flat-out delicious. The meat is still on the bone, but comes off with little resistance, just as it should. You can get them sauced, but there's really no need; the sauce is nothing particularly outstanding, and frankly, the ribs don't need it.$20 gets you a slab of pork ribs, which on this occasion today was more than enough to serve two hungry friends. To go along with the no-frills-ness of the place, you get just humble slices of white bread go along with your ribs. If you're less hungry, $9.95 gets you a rib dinner with a pair of sides. There's other offerings too, such as the apparently fantastic beef rib tips, but I can't get past the pork ribs. They're literally that good.This is about as far from fine dining as you can get: everything served in styrofoam containers, and the only thing resembling a table and chairs is the nearest curb, but even if it's just once, you really need to make the trip.
