Hounds need your help. any place YOU would eat for above average food near the University of Maryland Medical Center at w. redwood st and s. greene st.
only have a three hour window (there and back) from 1230 to 3:30 so can't drive a great distance. walking is ok too.
I'm am told the area is "sketchy" so where to avoid will be helpful.
food trucks worth the trip are fair game:-)

Need to take bride out for special night out without the kids, what do you all recommend. No chain restaurants please
Sometime between the 23 and the 28 depending on getting a sitter for the kids.
Thinking that fish would not be the best choice here.
Thanks

Baking at high altitude

Will be visiting Denver area for thanksgiving and want to teach my granddaughter how to make cream puffs. I live at sea level and am wondering what adjustments I might need to make.

Spending a week at NAS Jax. Got wheels and need your advise of where to eat.
What are your top six places for dinner.... Driving not an issue.
What would be five places for lunch....close to NAS Jax.

Finally if you were to only get out once.... Where would that be?

Thanks

I confess that I really like OK's better overall but I sure would not either one away. I completely agree with the way you defined fall off the bone. To me that is simply if you took the rib held it in one hand and with you other hand twisted and the meat. Come s readily away from the bone, that's my "fall. Off the bone"
Thanks for that insight.
Sadly I leave today at 0600 so I can't sample any more places. One thing for sure, where I live in Maryland there is nothing like this so it's been real fun eating here in folks town.
Thanks for all your comments and suggestions.

Yes sure did.
Today Brobecks bbq
Sauces are all Curleys, you can order them on line.
A hot and spicy original with mustard and black pepper curleys brand
A Sweet and mild is tomato based with molasses /brown sugar sweetener .
 A Mild hickory is the basic kc sauce with liquid smoke, it's a solid sauce but nothing to write home about.
A Carolina sauce that's a yellow mustard and vinegar base with honey sweetener .

Ordered burn ends , ryibs with no sides, sweet tea
Burnt ends were one inch cubes, light bark very most and somewhat tender still they were very fall apart.
Ribs came with dry rub only, solid even coating, ready for sauce. Tender, moist and fall off the bone. You can get single pieces, s o. You order as many or as few as you want.

The places is in a strip mall store clean, simple, 5years in location( in an old dairy queen) blues on sound system.
The staff are old hands that waste no steps, are very friendly. I o ver heard them make recommendation....never the same thing exactly twice, they were truly responding to their customers and giving the best answer for them... I even hear one suggest a alternate way to give the customer what they were asking for.... A cheaper order.
 
Bottom line up front. A drive to place. You would take your family to and it very affordable

Oklahoma Joes BBQ 
1430 hrs
Order, pay and carry to table
Ordered Rib and brisket dinner with coleslaw 
Small end for the ribs. Light rub, light sauce, light smoke
Very tender, meaty. Quite good, boarding on the best I've ever had.
Large squeeze bottles of sauce on the tables, and folks used it "freely"
Brisket was very tender and if there was a problem with it was there wasn't enough :-) ( about 6 oz) no bark to speak of.
The whole experience was about balance. Everything worked together. Nothing stood out in an overpowering way... Each item was good, together they were great.
Bottom line upfront  damn good cue. My wife will be happy that we don't live here as I'd stop by too often.

Completely understood. Still needing to decide my next visit do you have any recommendations?

Yesterday went to Gates BBQ 
Hi may I help you greets every customer.  My visit was at 1500 hours on a sunday so the place was slow. While I ate over 20 folks went thru the line...lots of burn ends orders.
Service was with a smile. Service was very pleasant and truly they act as if they are there to help you enjoy your meal. I got checked up on 4 times. Lots of front and back of kitchen help.
Order at the counter pick up your tray and pay
By the time the transaction most of the orders are ready the rest is brought out to you where ever you sit.

Ordered Burnt ends and onion rings
The burnt ends are true to the name... Burnt, but moist AND  chopped served with Gates original BBQ sauce. Their sauce is a basic tomato base with a fair amount of Vinegar,  a slight bite of pepper  sauce (think tabasco) not black pepper.
They  also  have a sweet and mild sauce and it's just as its name suggests. Its a Tomato base sauce  with a honey sweetener and light pepper touch. Not too sweet.
A dozen large onion rings came as the order. I  would have thought they would be made on site but they came from a box, frozen. Good serviceable  rings but not good enough to drive for.

The facility was 60's era, rode hard but put away clean.  You can see into the kitchen and the wood smoke is about 7feet from the ground not a bad thing for a cue place. The eating area is smoke free. You hear the drumming from the cleavers in the back as they chop all the burn ends.
Bottom line upfront Worth driving to. Gates is o the cheap end for BBQ prices.

Last night I'm went to Jack stack BBQ  sat night 50 min wait from
630 to 725.
Smells great and the lot was 80 percent  full told to get the rib and chix combo by them guy at the car rental place.
Sampler chix, pork ribs burn ends seeet tea  veggies ( kBob and corn on Cobb)
Decent chix in mild sauce
Links a little dry but tasty much  improved with spicy dipping sauce.
Burnt ends moist not hard  great flavor.
Ribs very tender.  light dry rub With wet cooking method
The place is nice not fancy.Dark woods low lights. 800 covers a avg night so they are busy.
Great wait staff, they worked  hard. Good service
Took carrot cake with me very nice. Made a great breakfast.
Recommend the vist, even with the wait.
Oh you can call in and order to cut back the wait. There is a very active take out with half the wait.

Bottenline upfront  come highly remommended. Solid BBQ worth driving to.
