The Rib Crib, Pittsburg KS

Hey neighbors!    

Well, I was in the small city of Pittsburg, Kansas again, this time for about a week, and being alone on this trip, it was my choice where to dine. Pittsburg offers a pretty fair selection of restaurant types, from a decent steak place or two, to Mexican and Chinese, to the normal fast food fare.  Amongst all these was my personal favorite, and during my stay in this university city, I frequented The Rib Crib on three separate occasions.  

Each time was FANTASTIC! The first time I went with the two-meat dinner and chose the pulled pork and turkey. Both were excellent in flavor and appropriately moist, which is very important as dry meat in a barbecue place can kill the meal, no matter how much you soak it with barbecue sauce.  The beans were great as well, but what especially surprised me was the side salad. Frankly, most salads bore me, though my wife's salads she makes at home and believe it or not, Wendy's Spicy Chicken Caesar salad are very good. The replacing of the croutons with tortilla strips was a great move and the blue cheese dressing perfectly suited the salad. 

The next time I visited I tried the catfish and meat combo, choosing again the pulled pork. Again, moist and both having great flavor.  The salad as a side was a no-brainer, at least for me and this time I chose their luscious potato salad. This was such a perfect meal, I had the same for my third visit. 

 The sauces are great at The Rib Crib, my personal favorites being the sweet and the hot, though I must admit that I would have enjoyed a hot sauce that was extremely hot, but that is just a personal preference as I seem to have built up my tolerance for such sauces to an extreme level. 

 The service matched the food, though I only notated the last two servers that took care of me. Jessi especially stuck out as she actually addressed me as "sir" instead of " guy" or "buddy," which sadly many restaurants have gone to, including the steak chain that I went to right down the road from the Rib Crib. I understand that some CEO's have gone in that direction in order to sound more "down-home" but in my opinion it takes away from the professionalism of the establishment.  So, hats off to Rib Crib for maintaining this standard. My server the next time was Mary, who again, had  a professional demeanor. Both young ladies were pleasant, courteous and there when you needed them but not pestering you when you were trying to eat. Their professionalism is no doubt a combination of personal character as well as good management, that being Kadie James, who maintained expected courtesy to the customers yet seemed down-to-earth.  
So next time you are passing through Pittsburg be sure to stop at the Rib Crib. You'll be glad you did. You will find them at:
2909 N. Broadway Street
Pittsburg Kansas 66762

Thanks for stopping by!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
