We discovered J.B. Dawson’s in Drexel Hill several years ago. We were elated when it opened at Christiana Mall. The ribs are meaty, tender and tangy, and sides such as good baked beans or spiced apples couldn’t be more appropriate. We like lots of rib places. We love Dawson’s. Christiana Mall, Newark, 369-4000, jbdawsons.com
