BBQ Ribs



Our Dowd’s BBQ goal is to create warm, unforgettable memories. Barbeque ribs tacoma wa washington – image.”Ribs taste sublime when cooked properly, and Dowd’s understands how to smoke pork; slow and low. The ribs were juicy with a tender bite. The supple pork slid right off the bone with little nudging. Tinged with pink, the meat was subtly smoky, underneath a vinegary molasses sauce. A bargain at $6.99, which included baked beans and potato salad. Try the pulled pork sandwich, brisket, rib tips, chicken, burgers or fish served with a delicious selection of sides.” — Review from The News Tribune
