Westown Tavern BBQ Sparerib Special

Last night was the official kick-off of the West Town Tavern’s BBQ Sparerib Special. Every Wednesday night, Chef Susan Goss serves her Texas-style pork spareribs alongside fried potato salad and black-eyed pea relish – all for $18.75. And last night’s special dinner also included a free piece of Lemon Chess Pie and a bag of Chef’s dry rub spice blend to take home. Plus (as if that wasn’t enough) you could add a glass of Murphy Goode Liar’s Dice Zinfandel 2004 for $10.

The ribs were awesome – really meaty, really tender, fall-off-the-bone, flavorful, plentiful (we each took two home with us) and they tasted just as good, maybe even better, the next day. I never would have thought to fry potato salad, but one taste and I knew why they did. It was reminiscent of Italian fried rice balls and the extra crunch from the breadcrumb coating added a nice texture.

Not only do I highly recommend the Wednesday dinner, West Town Tavern also offers a Monday night Fried Chicken Special and a Tuesday Hamburger Dinner Special. I can’t vouch for the burger (we haven’t tried it yet), but the chicken and the ribs should be on the top of your “must try” list.
