Ribs at Hog Pit

Don't know if others have had the same experience but
we have some sorry news to report as regards the Hog
Pit, on 13th and 9th Ave.
This was one of the best rib places in the city for
the past two years but things have changed in more
ways than the ill-advised periwinkle blue paint job
around the bar.
Terri Mangrum, are you still there, if so what
happened, if not thanks for the memories. We used to
enjoy fall off the bone, clean, tasty ribs; the kind
that engendered the desire to keep this place a
treasured secret or sing the praises to selected
friends that would truly appreciate the quality and
care that was obviously present.
Now, however, after two successive tries, the ribs are
now fatty and tough, the very antithesis of what is
expected.
Perhaps their success has led to the rise in prices
and lowering of quality. It's a shame but certainly
not the first time we've seen this happen.
Has anybody else had a similar take on this formerly
funky, comfy, rib joint??
