It’s hard to say who is more excited about the opening of Tinder Ribs…owner Paul Tinder or all the BBQ lovers in Southeast Iowa.
Tinder retired from his position with the state fire marshal’s office, ready to indulge in his passion for BBQ. But first he had to find a location which he did in Wayland. He has spent the winter months renovating what used to be a pizza place while he waited for equipment to arrive. And now Tinder Ribs is ready to open Tuesday May 3. Tinder and his family will start out serving pulled pork, pork ribs and turkey and sides of baked beans, mac and cheese and cole slaw with plans to expand the menu in the future. Drive-thru will also be available. Tinder Ribs is located on Hwy 78 on the east edge of Wayland. Hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 11 am to 2 pm and 5 pm to 8 pm.
