A tip from a member in the locker room of a Fort Worth country club led Love to this out-of-the-way find, in a wood-sided building with a dirt parking lot and spare ribs that are more than worth the drive. “You go to some places, and you can tell that the ribs have been sitting around and they’ve just warmed them up,” Love says. “But the ribs here are unbelievable. They take such pride in them, everyone they serve could be in a competition.”
A rodeo cowboy buddy alerted Love to this rustic redoubt, where hulking cuts of meat slow-cook in big open pits. “It’s one of those places where they chop up your meat and weigh it on a plate,” Love says. Which you then weigh down further with corn-on-the-cob, baked potatoes and other hearty sides.
A place so famous, you wonder if it could really live up to its billing. It does, Love says. “It’s just classic. It’s in a basement, down an alley, and you go in there, and you’re lucky you get Percy, an old waiter who’s been there forever.” You also get the lamb ribs. “They’re pretty much perfection,” Love says. “Best I’ve ever had.”
