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

Terrible food & service. Owners very arrogant & couldn't care less about customers. Ribs are much better across the street at Applebees & so is the service!!

We tried Rib City multiple times to give it a fair chance, but it was poor every time we went. The BBQ is mediocre, the portions are small, and the service is lacking. If you want BBQ in Alton go to Carvers. It's a hometown name and good food with large portions!

I have been to Rib City 6 or 7 times and the food and service are very good. As soon as you walk through the front door, you are greeted and taken to a table or booth. Service is generally very quick. I have tried the ribs, chicken and pulled pork and I think my favorite is the pulled pork.... More
