” Chef and owner Joe Duncan brings Dallas’ Baker’s Ribs to the big city for the ninth time at the festival… Baker’s shares St. Louis ribs with jalapeno coleslaw.”  Ashley Day, USA TODAY

Texas Monthly

“They smoke a seasoned turkey breast then dunk the whole thing into a fryer to finish it off. The result is juicy turkey whose slices have thick crispy edges. It was some of the better smoked turkey I’ve had…..The ribs were also excellent. The meat was moist and came from the bone perfectly. A subtle sweet rub allowed a good dark crust to form and the meat was very smokey.”  from September 26, 2012 by Daniel Vaughn

Baker’s Ribs believes in serving hickory-smoked BBQ and hence keeps wood-burning barbecue pits in their kitchens. As the name suggests, go there for the ribs, without sauce.
