The Best of Cleveland - Parking Lot Ribs

Appearances are deceiving, but smells aren’t. So trust your nose while pulling into the packed lot of theConvenient Food Martin North Ridgeville. Yes, it looks like a gas station (that’s because it is). But don’t let that deter you from the sweet smell of barbecue ribs and chicken freshly cooking to juicy perfection on an iron grill after two days of marinating in owner Steve Zimmerly’s secret sauce. Once a month from April through October, hearty appetites flock to Zimmerly’s all-day Sunday rib burn-off for full and half slabs that fall off the bone. It left us thankful we pulled in with a stomach running on E. But stop by early. These ribs (800 pounds’ worth) have a tendency to sell out by midafternoon. 32505 Center Ridge Road, North Ridgeville; (440) 327-7093;
