Ginopolis Bar-B-Q Smokehouse
Many years ago in Ohio, when the aunt of brothers Johnny and Pete Ginopolis created a recipe for Montgomery Inn ribs slathered in barbecue sauce, no one knew just how popular the dish would become. Its demand has skyrocketed so much over the years that today the brothers have the ribs shipped—via barge on a river of barbecue sauce—from Cincinnati to their 10,000-square-foot restaurant, Ginopolis Bar-B-Q Smokehouse. There, they proudly cook up their signature dish for everyone from anonymous locals to celebrities—one can find photographs of Elizabeth Taylor, Bob Hope, and Frank Sinatra with handwritten messages promoting the ribs.
In addition to the ribs, the smokehouse’s smoker also grills salmon, beef brisket, and free range chicken. The staff serves dishes on the outdoor patio or in a spacious dining room housing 10 plasma televisions, which often show sports games. While a framed Wayne Gretzky hockey jersey underscores the sports motif in the main dining area, there’s also an upscale banquet hall, where a framed business suit accentuates its elegant aesthetic. Ginopolis Bar-B-Q Smokehouse can also cater offsite events for up to 2,000 guests.
