Again a chain restaurant. Food is good and they have the Tuesday night all you can eat ribs night and sometimes run other specials.

After a few years away from Rib Crib, we thought we would try it again. Bad Decision. The best thing I ate was the smoked ham. It was good but no good enough to come back. The sliced brisket and ribs were bone dry. Even BBQ sauce could not make them edible. My wife's sausage was the worse sausage I... More

My husband and I ate here in May on our way back from Georgia to Oklahoma. I have to say this is one of the best Rib Crib's I've eaten at. Rib Crib originated in Oklahoma so I've visited several. The head cook made sure to let the waitresses know when he had the food up so it wouldn't sit... More

Good BBQ and the burgers are awesome too. Try the burger topped with cheese and a hot link! The ribs are delicious, they offer both baby back and Kanas City style. I'm not a fan of BBQ sauce, but they use a rub before the smoke the ribs.

The best baby backs I have had to date. Service was very fast and food was hot and all very good. My waitress was friendly and was on top of things. Really enjoyed the meal.

Louis L'Amour, the famous western writer, could take the simplest prose and light my senses afire ! Words came alive, grabbed me and wouldn't turn me loose. I became part of the outing. Bret Chandler, the founder of RIB CRIB, designed his locations to share a common theme of rustic lodge-like surroundings: "Western whimsical," he called it. I agree. I... More

Being an amateur bbq cook myself, the Rib Crib did not impress me. Ribs are bland, unless you smother them in sauce. Ribs seemed to be way over cooked, which implies to me that they are boiled (yuck). atmosphere is nice and service is great. If you want the best BBQ in town, head over to Whistle Stop on the...

The Rib Crib has some of the best food in Searcy. That being said, the ribs are always good, the sandwiches are decent. I don't like the fries though. A favorite place on Tuesday all you can eat ribs.

My husband & I ate here on our way to Florida. The waitress, Ella, was fabulous, bubbly and nice, but the food was awful. We ordered chips and salsa, (who can go wrong here) for our appetizer and the chips were so greasy we couldn't eat them. We split a Crispy Chicken Wrap with FF. the wrap was pretty good... More

I have been here several times and like the ribs. The service has been great each time and the place is always clean.
