Sad.

I enjoyed the downtown Damon's but have not eaten there since 2003 since City Barbeque and Hoggys both have better ribs in better more convenient locations.

If also illuminates how those who have to generate a profit are at such a disadvantage to those in government monopolies where standards are oftentimes inconsequential if not outright irrelevant.

When and how did City and Hoggy's get a monopoly on the rib market?

Has anybody ever told you what sarcasm is?

If not, I suggest that you look into it. It may prove to be very helpful.

Damon's sucked;
Hoggys sucked except the corn bread;
City overrated, bland, but the meat is juicy and moist;

I like smokey bones better than any of them.

Go to Dallas to experience real barbecue.

Smokey Bones is just another wannabe imitator soon to fade away in the sunset.

For a chain......Montgomery Inn has no competition in Columbus for best consistent ribs.

Applebees serves riblets which is really roasted neck with sauce. They must be liberal to redefine spine as ribmeat.

I was at a Montgomery Inn in Cincy several years ago. I didn't see what the big deal was. I didn't say Smokey Bones was great, just that I liked them better than the others.

While the others are at least edible, Damon's absolutely sucked. Awful food.

Rush Limbaugh once was going on and on about how great they are. Either a buddy of his had to own the franchise, he was paid to say it, or he just has awful taste.

I'm a City BBQ fan. The last time I visited Damon's in Chillicothe, the ribs were seriously nothing but bones, no meat to speak of on them. They closed that location a few years ago and opened a Roosters. I haven't been there yet.

I used to visit another site called "OddTrivia" or something to that effect. Its been so long I forget how to enter it. The badges are for a certain number of posts and props given by the other posters there.

After eating them downtown at the rib fest, I've not had any close to being that good. As for the pulled sandwich style, City BBQ had a good beef one, but the pork seemed bland.
And yes, Damon's was terrible.
