I love ribs. I have tried them at every new rib joint in Philadelphia and the area, as I do not mind traveling for a good slab. The Rib Crib has the best ribs..... hands down. Now this is only a take out joint, and I use the word carefully, as there are no frills here. It is all about... More

U get 2 sides w/ overpriced slab. The sides come in a container usually reserved for salad dressing on the side. It's not the usual pint or 1/2 pint that u get at most places.

Mmmmm.... Yummy ribs! Once when I was still a vegetarian and was desperately trying to study for a test my friend Alicia came over with ribs from the Rib Crib and I downed them. There. If that's not recommendation enough, I don't know what is.
