Windy City BBQ Ribs has been featured in the Columbus Dispatch:
- Windy City isn't just another barbecue clone. It uses organic meats and produce - a rarity among barbecue joints. And it offers wide delivery, well into Columbus. The all-important ribs ($14.95 for a half-slab) look anything but industrial. There's no doubt that they're prepared there. Lightly but thoroughly smoked, they're cooked to a fall-off-the-bone stage – Jon Christensen, Columbus Dispatch
