Ribs, burgers, dogs and beans -- Mark's Wednesday BBQ is back

Mark's Sports Bar & Grill was rockin' Wednesday night, with music blasting from the state-of-the-art jukebox and hungry folks lined up for its annual summertime barbecue. Owner Mark Adelhelm put together the 'cue program two summers ago, and it's back.

It works this way: Every Wednesday from 5 to 9 p.m. on the garden-style patio, Mark's cooks will grill and serve hefty cheeseburgers and plump hot dogs, with sides of house-made beans and potato salad (each plate is $5; two dogs per plate).

More interesting to us are the babyback ribs, prepared and sauced according to "a family recipe." Three ribs and the two sides are $7, with additional ribs at $1.50 each.

Also: an all-night open jukebox and featured drink specials that will change weekly.

We dropped by and loaded plates with much of the above. Frankly, there are some restaurants devoted to barbecue that don't do as good a job.

Check it out at 303 Iron Point Road in Folsom, (916) 357-5567,
