When chef Chad Rosenthal fires up his smoker, all of Ambler breathes in the scent of hickory and salivates a little.

BRIDGEPORT RIB HOUSE

Barbacoa, the Spanish word for barbecue, is also Ardmore's favorite spot for a Peruvian-style slant on the BBQ tradition, featuring amazing marinades. As for unique sides, we have just two words: cornbread pudding.
