ISO what to serve with spareribs

I'm making spare ribs,with a bbq sauce, in the oven. Besides cole slaw, what would YOU serve with them. I think I shall be serving small bowls of soup first. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes....
Corn bread
Fried onions rings....just dredge onion slices in seasoned flour and fry them, no need for those heavily battered rings.

Lots of napkins, too.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Picking up where VB left off ... cornbread, fried okra, okra gumbo, turnip/collard/mustard greens, black eye peas, baked or fried sweet potatoes, yellow crookneck squash, corn - boiled or roasted.

tater salad, mac salad, maybe cheddar grits, second the okra suggestion, or just a tossed fruit salad. Sorry, I'm obviously stuck on salads for whatever reason.

big fan of macaroni and cheese! The cheese seems to compliment the BBQ sauce.

Baked beans--spicy. Standard fare served with ribs. Corn on the cob is another. Make sure you have bread and butter, dill pickle too.

I think of ribs as a casual, sloppy meal. and what comes with them at a rib joint? Cole slaw, fries (or potato salad) and usually plain old spongy white bread unerneath 'em!

When I serve ribs, I like to serve similar stuff... maybe a little more upscale or "interesting" than the standard slaw or potato salad, and I always make my own bread. But I would go with the "old standby's." You can't go wrong, and they're not difficult to execute.

and don't forget plenty of paper towels. I hate the way paper napkins shred when you try to clean cue sauce off your hands!

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
