As you amble through Corte Madera's genteel Town Centre with its array of oh so nice, Marinish, middle-class stores, you might detect a change in the air. You frown, you ponder, you turn to your companion and ask, "Can you smell BBQ?" You can, of course, because Mr Ribs, with his own on the premises smoker, has set up shop in town.
Is Marin ready for something so stinky?
Is Marin ready to eat out of takeout boxes, using their fingers, without a bib?
Baby Back Pork Snack, $3.99
The two small ribs were the best part of the meal, lightly smoked, served warm, although wrapped in clingfilm (remember to remove before eating). This meal is difficult to consume and messy. I could still smell the smoke on my hands hours after lunch, despite the lemon wipe they provided for cleaning up afterwards.
The corn bread was something I didn't like. I am take it or leave it with cornbread. Some I prefer more than others. This version was too "steamy" for my tastes.
The sauce - was cold. Very cold. Too cold. It was a bit of nothing sauce, with meager personalitiy.
Next time we visit Mr Ribs, Fred and I will give the multi meal option a miss. Instead we'll share a half slab of the baby back ribs for $9.49 and buy a tub of the old fashioned potato salad from Bryan's Fine Foods, as a side, instead. Mr Ribs Real Deal BBQ - Corte Madera Town Center - Marin
