A little hole in the wall

But, it's pretty good eating. 5 star prices in a 3 star environment. And it has been there for many, many years.

Herman's ribs are great! Service was fantastic! Autographed pictures of every famous Razorback for the last 50 years were hanging on walls, pretty cool.

This is an old not updated restaurant that is very small with limited seating. They do not take reservations so, people just line up in the doorway in hopes of getting a table. The food is very overrated. The Ribs were not very good and the Garlic Chicken, that was recommended as great, was a disappointment. Avoid this old grease... More

A different take on great steak. Served with crackers and salsa and fried potatoes.

Don't believe everything you read here. Their full menu is available online, so you can always see the pricing and selection for yourself. My wife and I eat here often. We get the shrimp appetizer (9.50), and split a half rack of ribs (17.00), with a side of hashbrowns. The food is great and the service is among the best... More

Besides the pictures hanging on the wall, of a few famous people, and nice red table cloths, nothing is right in this place

Herman's Ribhouse had such a reputation for amazing steaks so for my birthday celebration I selected this restaurant for our special dinner. The crackers and salsa were a strange mix and the steaks were overcooked and served with cold hash browns. No baked potato was on the menu nor available! So disappointed in all the dinners--ribs, steak, garlic chicken--not worth... More

Herman's has a reputation with the locals as being a hot spot. There's no doubt their burgers are among the better in town, but there's certainly better to be had. It overpriced for sure, but worth giving a shot, because they do pay attention to the quality of their beef and there's something to be said for this.

I have eaten some great steaks in my life, but this ranks right up wtih the best ever. I also loved the "old school", "local hang out " type of atmosphere.We cant attest to the other dishes, but the steaks were excellent!

This was probably the worst rib I have eaten in my 32 years and I have eaten a lot of ribs!!! They are steamed flavorless with a dull fake rub. An appetizer of baby backs was 20 dollars. I ate 1 and asked for my check. The worst 30 dollars I ever spent. I planned on buying a steak dinner... More
