Chowhound seeks help: Ribs in Southern Marin

We love baby back ribs and like to buy them to take home. There used to be a place outside Bryan's in Corte Madera that had great ribs, but I just discovered that they've closed. Is there any other place in Southern Marin that has good ribs to go? Thanks.

  1. I haven't tried them myself, but Paradise Market in Corte Madera has what they call "Sticky Ribs" which they make inside now, but will be cooking outside when it warms up. Almost everything I've tried of their prepared foods have been good, so I'm guessing the ribs would be too.If you try them, give us a report!

    1. Thanks for suggesting Paradise Market. We tried their ribs last night. They were high quality ribs and the taste was OK but they didn't have the smokey taste that we like. Maybe when they go back to outdoor cooking, it will make a difference. Meanwhile, can anyone suggest other places in Marin for good take out ribs?

          That's the name of the place near Bryan's that closed. Here are the current occupants of the Corte Madera Town Center. No ribs.

        2. It's not southern Marin, and it's not the season for outdoor BBQ-ing, but when the season is upon us --

          Scotty's Market in Terra Linda has well-regarded BBQ.

          Apple's Market in Novato has very tasty ribs and such.

            They have outdoor smokers they only fire up in the summer? Or just charcoal grills?

              If you're asking about Apple Market, they no longer will be doing outside BBQ (something about food regs). They've been doing extensive re-modeling of Apple Market (I can't find anything anymore) but once weather is nicer, they'll be doing BBQ around the area of the meat counter (which will be expanded).

                If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Wonder what prompted Apple to do that?

                  I don't think it was entirely by choice. I spoke to one of the cashiers several months ago and I think he said something about food regs.
