Big Nate's BBQ

Best Ribs With Free Delivery

The free delivery is only on the weekends (nice if you're sacked out in front of the TV), but during the week you can pay for delivery or swing on by yourself for the delicious, meaty Memphis-style pork ribs offered under the aegis of former Golden State Warriors superstar Nate Thurmond. (Hence the basketball references both in the décor of this otherwise bare-bones shack and on the menu: Under the Team Meal dinners, there's a Two-Way Fast-Break Combo, a Three Point Combo, and a Hall of Fame Combo.) The potato salad is the partially mashed kind, there are raisins in the sweetish coleslaw, and opinion is divided on the beef brisket and the Memphis pork, both served chopped into crunchy cubes like the "brownies" at the famous Arthur Bryant's BBQ in Kansas City (some think Nate's meat is overcooked, some just happily dip the chunks in sauce and chew away). But everybody loves Big Nate's ribs.
