Carolina Spare Ribs — $14.99 for three quarters of a pound
Who knew coffee, sriracha and dijon could taste so dang good together? Chef Blake is who.
These tender ribs are covered with a carolina sauce and were based with a tangy coffee, sriracha and dijon rub. So flavorful.
Dry Spiced Ribs Basket — $9.99 for a half pound
This year’s spice rib has a sriracha coffee rub that I couldn’t get enough of. The ribs are tender and the meat fell off the bones.
Traditional baby back ribs — $21.99 for a full slab
There is a reason these ribs are a favorite on TJ Chumps menu. Sweet sauce and tender meat for the win.
