Bridgeport Rib House

Located off the beaten path close to the King of Prussia Mall, the Bridgeport Rib House has been serving BBQ and music fans since 1992. Original Pit Master/owner Deets Radliff took over a small corner bar on State Street nearly thirty years ago and created the Bridgeport Rib House, well ahead of the wave of BBQ establishments that have sprouted (and in some cases wilted) in the area over the last fifteen years.

A large three-sided bar shares space with the performance area with an adjoining dining area seating about fifty diners. The Rib House interior is decorated with rock music history memorabilia - autographed posters, electric guitars, and a collection of eight track tapes that I perused with nostalgic memories as I made my way to the restroom. With a reputation for hosting live musicians throughout the week, I was somewhat surprised by the small size of the stage, though the performing space can expand into open floor space around the marked stage area. Music is currently offered four nights per week with an online schedule available on the website (and there’s no cover charge!).

Blind Barber opens speakeasy w/Bryce Harper

When you go to their website, possibly to make an appointment to get a hair cut, you'll notice a a button to make a 'backroom reservation,' but what you may not know, is how to get to the backroom.  Once your haircut is done, or if you've just made a backroom reservation, find the spot in the wall that leads you into the two story bar, that you, or anyone else, most likely doesn't know exists. Phillies own Bryce Harper is a partner in the barbershop/ speakeasy, so you never know who you might run into at the Blind Barber.

I had never been to the Rib House before, but I heard it hosted various musicians and rock bands for numerous years. At one point, Get the Led Out (Led Zeppelin cover band) was the “house band” and has now ascended to national tour performances, and members are known to reconvene at the “Ribby” from time to time. On this Wednesday night we were entertained by John Salamone playing acoustic guitar.
Bridgeport Rib House operates a locally famous catering service, offering Southern Barbecue fare specializing in whole hog preparation and a variety of barbecue options. Barbecued hogs ranging from fifty to two-hundred pounds feeding more than one hundred people can be catered, including a full-service plan including setup to serving and cleanup.

The Ribby dine-in offerings specialize in barbecue ribs, chicken, and pork and other barbecue fare, though the menu also includes Burgers, Roast Beef Sandwiches, BLT’s Grilled Cheese, Cheesesteaks, and Grilled or Breaded Chicken sandwiches. Appetizers include Wings, Egg Rolls, Mozzarella Sticks, Buffalo Shrimp, Nachos, Quesadillas, and Pierogies. Nightly specials such as Fried Pickles, Cheesy Garlic Bread, and Mexican Street Corn were listed on the dining room slate board on the night of our visit.
Platters are served with a choice of typical BBQ options such as Macaroni or Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, Mac and Cheese, Fries, or a Baked Potato. (Wednesday Special NY Strip or Prime Rib served with soup or salad and two sides for only $19- October 2021)   Since I’m a prime rib fan, I selected the Prime Rib Special with a salad, baked beans, and a baked potato, and DW Sherri selected the Barbecue Rib Platter (choice of regular Spareribs or Baby Back Ribs) with Cole Slaw and a Baked Potato.

The Prime Rib was served medium rare as ordered with au Jus and was tender and flavorful, though the outer crust was a bit deficient on seasonings. Although the Prime Rib was slightly smaller than others I’ve had, the portion size of everything else that accompanied the meal was more than adequate and worth the price of the special. The Baked Beans and Cole Slaw were good, but we both found the baked potatoes to be cooler than desired and were served as dense tubers instead of the fluffier carb cloud versions obtained from high temperature roasting right out of the oven. A nice salad consisted of Spring Mix with a separate portion of Blue Cheese dressing.

Sherri chose the half rack of Baby Back Ribs, and they were fully cooked with a tasty sauce, though not “fall off the bone” tender for those who prefer that type of preparation. I thought it a bit unusual that DW Sherri’s ribs were served as single ribs instead of together as a “Half Rack” slab (count of five ribs). Better saucing of the entire rib and the visual perception of a greater portion size may be motivating factors here.

Service was prompt and friendly and the food presentation was simple, befitting the atmosphere and vibe of the space. Overall, the platters were a decent value for good food, and we had the bonus of live music while dining. I was told that the roast beef sandwiches are a good selection, so we’ll have to revisit to sample the roast beef, and Barbecued Pulled Pork and Chicken plates.

Dining Specials throughout the week, Monday Night Bingo (Free), Summer Ribstock concerts, Reservations on OpenTable.
