Seems like most of the bbq joints around have spare ribs. Where can I get some good babybacks? Prefer north of Boston...coming from Nashua.

    I recently had a great rack of honey bbq ribs at District 7 in Malden. It's not a rib place but it seems to have rib specials fairly often (ribs aren't on the regular menu). This is our new favorite local restaurant and we've had some other great meals here recently (ex. cajun grilled mahi mahi, cheeseburger, steak tips, etc.)

      The baby backs they have at Redbones for their $9.99 dinner special are pretty excellent; I'm not a big fan of most of the ribs they serve, but they do the baby back ribs nicely.

        +1 Redbones baby backs. Compared side by side with the regular ribs, I preferred the baby backs last time.

        You are right many of my go to bbq places do st. louis cuts only. You can try pigtrip.net to check some other bbq joints, but the author recently stopped updating the contents
