We're trying to lose some weight. What does this have to do with ribs? Well, this past weekend was the All-You-Can Eat Ribs weekend at Montgomery Inn. I knew how that would turn out. Pat would have eaten about 2 slabs of ribs. I was able to talk him into trying The Classy Pig instead. Portion Control!
Pat grew up in Ludlow about a block away from the Classy Pig. We arrived for dinner to a warm welcome.
I ordered the side salad with champagne vinaigrette. Pretty tasty, romaine lettuce, red onion, tomato, dried cranberry. I inquired on the dressing, it's not house made but it was very good.
I ordered the brisket sandwich with corn pudding and fresh cut green beans. I'll admit if I see the words "fresh cut green beans" on a menu, I am very skeptical. In this case they were 100% honest. These were fresh young green beans with a fresh snap to them in a little bit of a garlic sautee. Very delicious and fresh. The corn pudding was very delicious, it was a corn bread/corn pudding very sweet and hearty. It was some of the best corn pudding I've ever had.
Here's the inside of the brisket sandwich. It was very tasty. It had a slight peppery flavor to it, a wonderful smoky flavor and it was incredibly juicy. They further made my day by toasting the bun preventing sogginess. This was some of the best brisket I've ever had.
Pat ordered the half slab of ribs with fries and macaroni and cheese. He enjoyed the fries and macaroni and cheese. Their ribs were just as well flavored as the brisket and very large hearty portions. Their sauce is another high point. I inquired on it and they told me that like the sides and desserts that it was house made. There were occasional bits of onion in the sauce which accounted for the sweetness. It was beautiful and dark and a great consistency.
This was a welcomed surprise and I will definitely be back again. I would really like to try their fresh ground burgers.
