Any lover of ribs has probably heard or tried Morganfield’s. The chain restaurant has gone on to open several new outlets over the past couple of years ago and recently expanded their menu offerings.
We started off with some really nice golden fried Popcorn Pork ($9.90). Instead of the mushy insides you get in chicken nuggets, these pork pieces are made with cubes of pork rubbed with a spice mix and then fried.
We also had some Bacon Wrapped Meatballs ($11.90) for more of that porky goodness. Compared to the popcorn pork, this one tasted more intense and while my companions preferred the popcorn pork, I preferred this one!
Moving on to the main courses, we started off with Candied Peach BBQ Sticky Bones ($27.90 half, $42.90 full) which were apparently created especially for the ladies. The glaze on these ribs were nicely sweet and the chunks of grilled peaches went surprisingly well with the meat.
But the all star had to be the Smokey Bacon Bourbon Sticky Bones ($27.90 half, $42.90 full) with is deep and intensely flavorful glaze. The ribs for both main courses were well cooked and retained a nice moistness too which was nice because so many rib restaurants end up serving dry ribs 🙁
Alcoholics will also enjoy the two beers specially paired with these ribs. The SweetWater Blue offers a light lager with blue berry accents while the Bridge Road Robust Porter delivers a taste full of character and intensity and chocolaty aftertaste.
We finished the meal with some Bread Pudding ($11.90) and a Chocolate Brownie ($13.90), and while the Bread Pudding failed to deliver with its overly mushy and plain tasting insides, the Chocolate Brownie was sweet and decadent especially with that giant dollop of ice cream on top!
