The Corner Stable has been around since 1972, proudly boasting that they serve Baltimore's best ribs at their location on York Rd. in Timonium. If you've ever been, then you know what a unique place this is. A small, somewhat triangular, shack alongside a busy road; limited parking wherever you can find it; and horse racing decor on the inside. It was usually dark, and what most people would consider a dive. But look past all that and check out the line waiting to get in, sometimes overflowing outside.
Ribs is certainly what they are known for, and if you haven't been, then you are missing out. My family has been going to the Timonium location at least once a year for a long time now. No matter how far away we move, we still find a way back to enjoy those delicious ribs. But, a few years ago, the restaurant was sold to new owners, and the secret rib recipe passed on. The new owners also expanded the menu, offering Maryland's beloved crab cakes, and recently opened a second location in Columbia. So do the crab cakes stand a chance in the shadow of their famous ribs? Read on and find out!
