Mr. P’s Ribs and Fish Bus Becomes Sausage-Centric D.C. Dives

On one side of the Rhode Island Avenue Metro sits a shiny new development with luxury apartments, just-opened restaurants, and electric-car-charging stations. On the other side, a rundown strip mall with a Big Lots and a Forman Mills. It’s in the parking lot of the latter that Mr. P’s Ribs and Fish served barbecue from […]
