Stopped in with the fam for dinner after purchasing a Groupon. The setting is quaint and homey, probably because the restaurant is actually an old house!
The ribs? What can I say...the best. The meat was tender and juicy, with a great smokey flavor. The rub added just the right amount of seasoning, but the sauce, good gracious! I have never had a finer rib sauce in all my days. Tangy and spicy, just the way I like it.
One would think that a restaurant which caters to the general public would take the 'edge' off their sauce in order to avoid offending more delicate palates, but Crystal Lake Rib House is the truth. They do it their way and they do it the right way, for the rib aficionado.
If you enjoy tender pork ribs cooked slow and served with a robust hot/spicy sauce, and you want them at a reasonable price, then stop by the Crystal Lake Rib House. You will not be disappointed.
