Slab O Ribs

I came down with some Yelp friends who wanted to get another crack at the food before it closes for the season. When we asked what was available that day, the counter guy mentioned pulled pork shoulder, and offered a sample. I took a bite and said "Man, you just saved me a six hour drive". ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ f l a s h b a c k ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I'm driving to Sea Trail, a golf/beach resort in the southeast corner of North Carolina. The directions are vague as to when to switch from I-40 to US 117, and since they run parallel for about 100 miles I wind up taking the scenic route. It's a fine day in May, so the windows and sunroof are open. When I stop at the light (yeah, there's just one) in the town of Wallace NC, a heavenly aroma of smoke and meat wafts into the car, And there on the corner is the Kountry Kitchen restaurant. And it's lunch time. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ b a c k t o t h e p r e s e n t ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ And the ribs were magnificent too, smoky, juicy, perfect chew. The sides did not all hit the mark - excellent collard greens, good baked beans, mushy mac and cheese, generic potato salad. Sauces are rich and complex. I've had a lot of BBQ in MD, VA, NC, and SC, and none better than this. I still take a detour to Wallace on my way to (and often from) the Grand Strand, and Slab O Ribs is worth the trip too.
4.5 stars. This place is literally a shack on the side of Livingston Road in Indian Head, MD with three names on the building: Slab O Ribs, Joe's Rib Shack, and Palador Rib Shack. You blink and you'll miss it. When you park in a makeshift gravel lot (which was flooded that day), you'll make your way to a small shack that was obviously built around the giant smoker in the middle. We went there on a 90+ degree day and that shack can sure trap heat, you feel bad for the poor dude preparing your delicious meats behind the counter. This place is not in the least fancy. It's every bit of the definition of a hole in the wall. Visible tar holding the roof in place, a few flies, and an outdoor area consisting of picnic tables in long grass by another broken down shack, but don't let appearance fool you, the food here is outstanding. I wish I had taken a picture of the menu but from what I recall from memory we ordered the half rack of ribs at around $15, the pulled pork sandwich, and three sides: mac n cheese, greens and potato salad. The ribs are every bit as fantastic as other reviewers say. We ordered them mild and they came out charred on the outside, tender on the inside.The bbq sauce was mild in flavor and did not disguise the flavors of the meat. I would have preferred more of a smoked flavor on the ribs. I have to be honest, given the days temperatures, the swarm of bees & flies by me while eating outside and the fact that I was covered in head to toe swollen bug bites, I wasn't in the mood to eat the ribs. Don't get me wrong to quote another Yelper they were hittin' and stickin', but they were also sticking to my hands and face and attracting more bugs. These are the type of ribs you would eat in a screened-in setting with a shower nearby. I'm gonna be truthful about what really won me over that day. The pulled pork sandwich. This is north carolina vinegar bbq DONE RIGHT. I am in love with that tangy meat. It came with coleslaw on the sandwich and it wasn't one of those pick up and eat with your hands kinda sandwiches, it was so stuffed you needed to eat it with a fork. One more thing about slab o ribs. I've noticed something about local bbq joints, even if the meat is mind blowing at a joint, the sides have always managed to be subpar. I feel like this is consistent no matter where I go in Baltimore, VA, and DC. Not here. The greens and mac n cheese had to be my favorite. So if you're in the neighborhood of National Harbor, and you are a barbecue fanatic, I recommend stopping by this place. Just remember it's BYOHW (bring your own handy wipes).
This place is deceiving on the outside! The food is A-mazing. In the top five BBQ places I've ever been to.

The ribs were really good! We'll be coming back again soon!
Excellent ribs, excellent sliced pork, yummy chicken... I love all of the meats here. The sides... eh. Potato salad is yellow mustard based. Coleslaw and baked beans are pretty standard. The sauces are excellent - tomato based. They have a hot and mild variety, and the hot variety tastes like peppers, not just heat. We picked up a huge to-go meal for a party one night, and the service and food quality for that was excellent as well. You get a TON of food for your money - generally two entrees are enough for my husband and I for two meals (or more). Highly recommended.
Had a quick lunch of minced BBQ pork on a bun with potato salad and cole slaw. There are extremely few options at the end of 210 South so you'd be crazy not to eat here. Try it out. Being a potato salad purist, I must highly recommend their fare. The BBQ was nice but next time I think I'll get something not minced...better on the bone.

I've never had a problem with the people or customer service and I've been here several times... It's clean, employees look clean and neat. The cookies are the best! One time I drove there just to get cookies lol
The owner or manager here is a complete jerk. Older man. First I ordered a sub the exact same way that I have ordered it for the last 10 years. I have always gotten vinegar as a condiment on my sub but for some reason he thought I said mayo so he lathered it on thick. When I told him I don't like Mayo he proceeded to wipe it off of the bread. I told him I don't eat oils and I'd like a new bread that didn't have mayo on it. He became angry and told me I said mayo. He told me he wasn't making a new one so I walked out. In the past I have also been charged for more expensive subs than I ordered. Shady and rude. I'll drive down the road for better food and much better service.
I'm always amazed how people throw away their integrity for $1.25. I used a double meat coupon and ordered a Spicy Italian. All went well until I was charged for an Italian BMT. I stated I ordered the Spicy Italian, but was made a BMT. And I was NOT given a receipt. How short sighted. Maybe you were trying to "get back" the coupon cost. You lost a local customer that has been there many times.

Food is hit or miss, but we live in Indian Head so know what's good to order and what isn't, so it's one of our takeout (or delivery) choices. Most of the chinese dishes are good, though I find the fried rice to be heavy on onions, and the breaded meats vary (according to day/cook/supplies, I don't know). Steamed dumplings used to be one of our favorites, and the sauce for that varies wildly from order to order. The random dishes generally aren't worth trying (mozzarella sticks, anything that's not chinese or subs). The gryo is good if you have your own condiments (feta cheese, cucumber sauce), otherwise... it's odd with american condiments. Subs are generally okay. Haven't tried the wings, so can't offer an opinion. It's not a place for atmosphere for dining; we always get our food for takeout or delivery. Also, when doing takeout, we call ahead so it's waiting. I'm not sure how long it takes to make, but it's always hot when we get it, so no complaints there.
Skip it. The food is not good.
Ok Goodies servers Chinese and American food don't order any American food from them unless it's chicken wings. The low quality will make you sick. On the other hand the Chinese food was okay. I gave this place a 3 star only because it's a step up from Panda Cafe but I also had better. Will do if you don't feel like the drive farther up the street.

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been used in reference to Afghanistan...There is nothing inviting to the casual traveler. Should be listed under bars, by no means should this be considered a restaurant! Building needs a makeover, and so does the bar manager's personality! Extremely rude! The locals keep this place going simply due to lack of better options in the immediate area.
