Rib joints north of the Mason-Dixon tend to have similar problems, and Bobz Ribz suffers from some of that Yankee disconnect—summed up by the lack of a smoker, canned doctored-up baked beans, and an ample and tender but bland version of pulled pork. But you still may find your lips smacking when a plate of St. Louis–style pork ribs lands in front of you. The consistency of the meat would benefit from a little more low-and-slow action, but the tangy sauce is a heady, finger-licking slather of tomato, molasses, onion, and vinegar well worth the reasonable cost. The macaroni and cheese is as good as they come, all thick and twisty in a respectable roux with just enough white and yellow cheddar to hold it all together. The sweet, crumbly, cake-like corn bread comes in slabs as big as a haystack. The design, too, is spirited: The airy, cheery, burnt-orange-walled dining room is lit by dangling, earth-toned Deco pendant lights and hung with twig wreaths, barnyard paraphernalia, and other examples of down-home country kitsch.
