Best Ribs

Mount Vernon Stable and Saloon

909 N. Charles St., (410) 685-7427

Posted 9/22/2004

Pull the rib cage out of a pig, smother it in barbecue sauce, throw it on a plate, and we’re there. We like it dripping with sauce and falling off the bone, and that’s the way they serve it at the Mount Vernon Stable. And they don’t skimp, either; your plate is always piled high with ribs as well as your choice of french fries or a potato and coleslaw or sweet but not too sweet apple sauce. And it’s such a butch culinary option that it’s all the more pleasing to us that the best place to get ribs is a gay bar. Not only do you get mouth-watering meat but you get it in a fun atmosphere with a soundtrack of pop hits from the ‘70s to today. There’s just something about tearing meat off the bone with your teeth to the sound of Cher’s “Believe” that can’t be beat.
