Lauded for its succulent pork ribs on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate and ABC’s The View, Ronnie’s Ribs, Wings & Other Things supplies feasters with expertly executed barbecue classics. Originally founded on the parking-lot grounds of a former gas station, the eatery has since moved to a larger 300-seat location, where 50 TVs entertain customers as they dine. According to the Food Network feature, pit master Ronnie Logan flavors his pork ribs with a mixture of dry rub, brown spices, paprika, and secret ingredients. Each rib rests atop a hickory smoker, which cooks the meat with smoke and heat so no errant flames burn a customer’s meal or convince someone the Olympics are nearby. Along with ribs, pulled-pork sandwiches, jumbo chicken wings, and beef brisket make it hard to ignore the alluring scents drifting about the air, which is also filled with traditional sides and drinks. The family-run Ronnies also caters large familial or corporate events.
