Within the brick walls that have housed Twin Anchors since 1932, generations have made their way across the checkerboard linoleum floor to throw a quarter in the jukebox and get saucy with a slab of their legendary ribs in one of the curved booths. Though the bar is wall-to-wall on weekends, most weekdays are low-key, with families and groups ready for a casual night out.
Fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs are the real deal, made with a sweet and spicy rub, served with their own “zesty” sauce or the newer Prohibition version, with brown sugar and a wallop of ghost-pepper heat. Classic sides like onion rings, baked beans or hearty chili round out the meal.
If there’s a wait at this no-reservations spot, try the beer of the month while cooling your heels.- Gli ispettori della guida MICHELIN
