One of the best places to eat in Searcy, AR

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.

We eat here about once a month. It's always good. Love their pulled pork and chicken. My husband loves their shrimp. Also prefer their sweet and tangy beans over the cowboy beans. We've always had good and friendly service. A bit pricey or we would eat here more often.

Nothing I have eaten here is good. As much as I have tried to like it here, nothing is good. They have the worst ribs I have ever eaten.

I am not familiar with this chain .,. but if the others are as good as this one, I'll watch more closely while traveling. Their pulled pork was excellent, with their brisket being average (we are from Texas). Full menu, clean establishment, clean restrooms .. at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy .. just good eats.
