        when Dougies had the one store they would marinate the ribs for a few days in their sauce.

        now they just slop on the sauce, cook it and serve it

          Too bad, it's called barbecue, but it ain't the real thing.

      2. Yo, I take it you're talkin' about short ribs, not spare ribs?

          1. Dougie's may win by default. Short ribs are a different animal, imo, and not really my cup of tea, but Mike's are pretty good.

            1. Hands down best ribs are at Estihana. Very beefy, a bit too sweet and sticky of a sauce, but tons of meat for your money and very succulent and tender. Beg to be eaten with the hands (not date food). They often sell out later in the night so make sure to order early.
