Smokeshack Ribs BBQ Restaurant is really just a takeout, just off Indian Head Highway on Livingston Road. The day I visited, the restaurant had run out of its signature pulled pork, and the ribs I ordered ($19.95 a rack) were meaty but with a strange, rubbery texture and a thin, brown barbecue sauce with a bit of a kick but not a lot of depth of flavor.
The coleslaw -- crisp shreds of green cabbage and carrot with a creamy dressing -- is too sweet and needs more vinegar. The potato salad, with well-cooked, medium-dice potatoes, includes scallions and sweet pickles. The only drawback is what seems to be a too-generous dusting of paprika.
