During my Travels in Jacksonville a while ago, my super cool Tour Guide took me a place who has their own sauce for ribs… you know what that means:
RIB BATTLE !!!
Sticky Fingers of Jacksonville vs. Shane’s Rib-Shack of Tallahassee.
As I sit in the new place, I must say that I’m impressed with the overall design of the place it’s a little more upscale than Shane’s, but I think that’s mainly because they are after a different crowd. They have live music Friday and Saturday nights and they are located near the beach. Our Server for the evening was actually a cool guy, he was to the point, answered our questions and made pretty good suggestions. I get the Rib sampler and my Tour Guide gets a Chicken Salad; she tells me that she’s allergic to BBQ sauce…
I wept for her Stomach…
Alright, on to the food !!!
First, I have the Dry Rub ribs. I must admit, the meat itself was very moist and prepared right; I just wasn’t impressed with the rub flavoring; I’m very glad I had soda to help wash it all down.
They lost points for having a bug in my tour guide’s salad. It was very disturbing actually. They were nice in handling the situation quickly. Her food was free; I still had to pay for mine… needless to say I was looking for a way to get free food cautious of my own food …
The Tennessee whiskey ribs were alright, they had an interesting flavor, I blame it on the alcohol…
Who does caramel apples with the skin intact ??? that was NOT cool.
LOL at their TVs not in sync; they were about 3 seconds off. They were the same channel. I’m not trying to nit-pick, I just think it was especially funny.
alright, I’m 3 styles of ribs down and honestly I don’t think they’re better than Shane’s… They are tasty and cooked well, just not what I was looking for, my palate isn’t impressed
What is the big idea with my soda costing more than a beer… Seriously, why must I be punished for not wanting alcohol ?
Well, I have finally finished my meal and reached a verdict: although the place was nice, server on point and food pretty decent, their ribs were not as enjoyable as Shane’s. But then again, what do I know ? I was raised in Brooklyn.
If you know of a place that has really good ribs, let me know I shall check them out.
