    Just thought I'd start a thread about favorite/new/good places to eat...or warnings about bad ones.

    We had a 2-for-1 coupon to the new BBQ place where Rosarito used to be on Main Street downtown Ventura. The place is called "Chicago for Ribs" and was excellent! We had the tri tip and baby back ribs, both tender and well flavored, with a tangy, yummy BBQ sauce. The BBQ beans and fries were good, and so was the cornbread and the veggies. I would advise skipping the mashed potatoes, however. They're alright, but not as good as the other sides.

    :~)

    We should meet there sometime.

    Just remind me before I post the next polls and I'll put it up for a meeting spot. I haven't even heard of it.

    Went to Pat and Oscar's in TO.

    WOW!

    Noah loves the place. Was eating breadsticks double-fisted. *Even* ate ribs! (Well, we had to tear off pieces w/o sauce on them for him, but for a kid who thinks all meat should be chicken nuggets, we were thrilled.) They were also nice enough to bring him complimentary applesauce, which he tried to feed himself!

    AND...we had mega leftovers!

    Now I see why people love it so much!
