There's only one place in the Quad Cities that has good ribs - Jim's. Kelly's are tasteless and they need to put on a bunch of barbecue sauce to make them taste halfway good.

Road Tips

I've eaten in a lot of barbecue joints during my time on the road all these years and I'd have to say that Jim's is somewhat down on my list of favorite barbecue places. The biggest problem they have is consistency. My wife and I went there one night years ago and it was outstanding. We liked it so much that we went back the next night and the meat was tough and overcooked. We haven't been to Jim's since we went there for ribs a couple three years ago and they were dry and - we thought - vastly overpriced. While I don't care for Kelly's or the Circle Tap's ribs all that much, they are consistent in their taste and tenderness.
