Stack up some steer ribs at Texas BBQ House

January is drawing to an end which means those New Year's resolutions should be fizzling out right Rather than beating yourself up about breaking your promises, why not treat yourself to making it this far. We suggest going all out with the not-so-new you by taking a trip to the Texas BBQ House for what may be "the best beef ribs in the Valley." A new addition to the South Phoenix restaurant's menu, these savory ribs (available at $6.99 for a half-rack, $10.99 for a full) are the perfect trifecta of juicy, smokey and seasoned. It's a recipe 6 months in the making - which is 5 months longer than your New Year's resolution lasted. For business hours and more, visit Texas BBQ House online.
