“Dear PoPville,

The post on Rib Pit reminded me of another place that I stumbled across this weekend. I’m not sure if its been covered on PoPville, but have you heard of Mr. P’S Ribs? We stumbled upon the place [6th and Rhode Island Ave, NW] over the weekend and it was spectacular.

The ribs are sold out of a really old school bus in the vacant lot at the corner of Rhode Island and 6th. For $11 you get a HUGE serving of ribs, two sides, and bread – you can barely get one small plate for that price 7 blocks west. The bare bones of the place is what makes it great – two tables sitting in the middle of a vacant lot surrounded by barbed wire and a menu written on white printer paper. The people were friendly and the food/service was awesome. If they shortened the bus into a truck and served downtown at lunch, I’d go (almost) every day.

Do you have any other details on the place? Is it permanent addition to the neighborhood?
