The waitress was very nice and on the spot when we needed something, and the ribs were fantastic not over smoked if you like a heavy smoke this may not be your spot but I had Kansas city style ribs and fries and slaw and I thought it was great

My fitness center is nearby, so after my gym time my wife & I went to Rib City. We were seated immediately , our server pointed out specials and even some nice deals . The food was great ( except for the green beans, my wife said they tasted funny) but over all a good time and good food.

You get a fair amount of food here. But, the bar-b-que is not equal to home cooked bar-b-que. Good, but not great.

I had the special, which was the pork ribs with your choice of a second meat, I chose beef. The sides were baked potato and sliced tomatoes. The ribs could be torn apart by hand and there were several styles of sauce to choose from (sweet, tart, etc.) at table, others available on request. The tomatoes may have been a... More

The food was very good, but we waited a long time for our main course. Others who came in after us were served before us.

I love Rib City Alton! My husband I seem to eat here at least once or twice a month. The ribs are absolutely fall-off-the-bone delicious and their garlic toast is amazing! The atmosphere is always super friendly and the management and wait staff are great! If you are thinking about trying it out I say go for it!

I am not a big BBQ fan, so I eat other foods at Rib City. Their chicken sandwiches are very good. My family tried the fried okra which was good as well. My family does like BBQ and said theirs was fair. Portions are enough. Wait staff was attentive and very nice. I would try this place again.

Never been here before, came with a party of six. The manager was very friendly, as was our waitress. I wasn't in the mood for BBQ, so I had the grilled chicken sandwich, which was as good as any other place. No one else in my party had any complaints about their food either. The prices are average and all... More
