Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
What do you think of when you think of good barbecue? Maybe it’s moist, delicious brisket smoked for hours on end and served with Texas toast. Maybe it’s prime rib, slow-cooked all day and served with au jus. Maybe it’s steaks, chops, or corn on the cob. Loaded baked potatoes, maybe? Or, it could be ribs that come to mind – ribs so incredibly tender and perfect they fall off the bone before you even try and bite into them, slathered in a flavorful sauce, leaving you begging for seconds and thirds. Well, if that third one sounds particularly amazing to you right now (okay, and the other things, too) you’ll be excited to learn about this awesome, unassuming little joint in Fort Wayne that quite possibly has the best ribs in Indiana. Ziffle Rib Bar has been family-owned and operated since 1987, and it’s become a staple of Midwestern cuisine.
