Jeez you can't even get beef rib love in Texas either? Thought it was just the farkers here in NY that were looking to rip me off. I'm pretty sure you're out of luck as the ones usually available for sale for trimmed off the rib eye, and they ain't letting a single bit of profitable rib eye got to waste.
I think I saw whole foods had some back ribs once, not sure how much they're charging as it is WF.
