Having eaten at many Cobb & Co restraunts I found this one to be very dated and unclean. the air conditioning ducts above our table were thick with grime and dust and had clearly not been cleaned for months. Even some of the cutlery... More

There is only one item on the menu that I have ever bothered trying. The gluten free ribs are good enough that when I am in the mood to go out for ribs, I just say "Cobb and Co."? I never get disappointed.
