No more Ribs King at Comerica

the former Montgomery Inn location at Comerica Park

So, I was reading a story about the Montgomery Inn opening in Dublin, Ohio, today and I came across this line:

The 10,000-square foot restaurant with seats for 300 will be the company’s fourth location and the only one outside the Cincinnati area.

Of course, I thought of the Inn location between Cincinnati and Indianapolis that closed several years ago and then I remembered that we were stunned to discover a Montgomery Inn inside Detroit’s Comerica Park during our OMGReds road trip to Detroit and Toledo last August.

So before I called BS on this claim that it’s the only Inn outside Cincinnati, I did a little research and found out the Montgomery Inn inside Comerica is no longer there.

The Labatt Blue Light Jungle Bar, previously known as the Montgomery Inn, has been transformed into a jungle-themed sports bar and restaurant featuring 119-inch HDTVs and 65-inch plasmas. “The Jungle” is located by Gate B on the Pepsi Porch level in right field.

Who knew.

    Peeps in up in Tha D just don’t recognize.

    It’s okay though, the whole thing felt like The Ribs King was cheating on us by being up there anyway.

    Maybe they closed because they aren’t “The World’s Greatest Ribs”.
