Big Ernie's Rib Shack in Escondido
I went by Big Ernie's Rib Shack last weekend. It's a brand new place in a new mini-mall.
I had a half rack of pork ribs + onion rings. The rings were in a smooth golden batter and were delicious. The pork ribs had a great smoke aroma and tasted great. They were big, meaty, tender and flavorful. Whatever Ernie's secret marinade was did a great job keeping my taste buds happy. Ernie's sauce wasn't needed but it did give the ribs a nice extra kick. I'm not sure if I prefer the ribs with or without sauce...
The portions were huge and well worth the price. I went there for lunch and I was full the rest of the day.
Maggie got the pulled pork sandwich and I sampled the pork. It was tender and filled with that same blend of smoke and spice that was so delicious in the ribs.
This is my new fav bbq rib place!
