This was our third visit to Blake's Place, and the first time we were not completely satisfied with the experience. We should have been a little suspicious when the Baby Back Ribs arrived at our table very quickly, even before we got our Garlic Bread and our Onion Rings.

Sweetie Pie ordered the Apricot Chili Glazed Chicken Wings, which were just as beautiful and delicious as ever. As were the Onion Rings and Garlic Bread. Her mother ordered a full rack of Baby Back Ribs. As I mentioned, they arrived a little too quickly, but were not glistening and fresh (as they have been previously). They also seemed tougher and bonier (i.e. less meaty) than before. This was very disconcerting, as the Baby Back Ribs are what we enjoy most about the Blake's Place experience.

I ordered the  Blake's Big Rib Plate, which is Baby Back Ribs, Pork Spare Ribs, Beef Rib, BBQ Beans, Cole Slaw, French Fries and Garlic Bread. Well, everything on my plate was freshly prepared and delicious, and we could really tell a big difference between my Baby Back Ribs and Sweetie's mother's plate. I also ordered the Blake's One Pound Bomber Sandwich (with beef brisket, pork, turkey, Swiss cheese, pickles, red onion and BBQ sauce on a French roll). Wow! What a sandwich. Not only big, but also very good and easy to eat. ( If you want an even bigger sandwich, try "The Beast"- weighing in at over two and a half pounds).

Tonight's Blake's Place dinner gets one and a half thumbs up from the 3 Tubby Tummys.
