The GLOB Master has been hearing stories about how the SW 13th St. Adams Rib (AR) Co. has been wall-to-wall with lunchouters every day. I am here to tell you the stories are true. I went, I saw, I concur--my entire lunch hour customers flowed in the AR front door, while Sarah, the customer friendly server, manned the cash register smoothly enough that everyone seemed happy about having a BBQed lunch. It could be the Adam's Rib 2-rib lunch special has a lot do with customer happiness. Two of Adam Brewer's GIANT, tasty, fall-off-the-bone pork ribs will soothe the most savage carnivores. These ribs are so good it seems unfair to the juicy pork flavor to use one of Adam's multiple BBQ sauces choices. But choose I did and I opted for hot and spicy--Heater BBQ Sauce. The swamp sauce had some heat but was a little on the sweet side for my palate. My only disappointment was I knew the image of the 'cue sauce bottles would have been a better image with Sarah's photogenic face beaming from behind the the bottles of sauces. Unfortunately for you, Sarah was way too busy to play with the GLOB Master. Maybe next time I can get that photo shot and add onion rings to the rib special.

My once a month lunch friend Tracie and I went to the south Adam's Ribs for lunch today for the pork special and a side of black eyed peas and a drink. After our meal we were talking and a waiter came up and asked us to leave because someone needed our table. Ouch! We will not return.

Based upon your article, I visited Adam's Rib South for Meatloaf Monday. A very pleasant and satisfying meal. The meatloaf was packed with flavor and had a hint of smoke flavor - barbecue meatloaf, real treat. My sides were black eyed peas and collard greens. Packed with down home flavor. Staff was efficient and pleasant (+). As much as I like music while I eat, it was a bit much (+).

GLOB Master: I agree with you. Adam's Ribs has captured the top spot on retail ribs in this area. Tender, meaty and flavorful. My tastebuds remember Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City, Y.T Parker's, Pres and Ed's and Terrell's barbecue, all here in Gatortown, past and present. Adam's Ribs are goood!
