Just up the block [from Jethro's Restaurant], Boomerangs Original Ribs is a much better choice, at least for ribs ($15.95 a rack). The pulled pork ($9.95 a pound) is gray and dry and tastes stringy and gamy. The tomato-based sauce is brown and doesn't add a lot of oomph. The coleslaw is mush: too finely chopped, tasting only of cabbage. The potato salad has nice chunks of potatoes, but needs salt and is a bit watery. But the ribs are good, though a bit overcooked. The slightly sweet sauce is a nice accent, and there's a good meaty flavor underneath.
