Jethro's BBQ

Jethro's BBQ near Drake has received national attention for its big food challenge.  Although the publicity emphasizes BBQ, the menu and atmosphere are both classic sports bar.  The menu has the usual range of burgers, wraps, etc. as well as BBQ.

But of course I had to try the pork ribs.  (They don't seem to have beef ribs.)  They were served with a dry rub and at most just a little sauce.  The meat was tender and gave just a little resistance off the bone.  I concentrated on the hot sauce, which really wasn't that hot.  I would classify the BBQ as quite good but not drive-worthy.

As an example of the lighter fare, Mom tried a turkey wrap.   Her favorite part was the warm cabbage, just sour enough to balance the sweet sauce.
