OK

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

The rib crib was great! The service was excellent and the food even better. I had the pulled pork plate and the meat was so good sauce was unnecessary. My girlfriend had chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes and she said it was amazing. Our waitress was extra friendly and attentive. Service like that is hard to find these days.... More

Great barbeque, no matter what style you like. Price is great, too. Serving staff is always friendly and efficient. We eat here every time we pass through Searcy.

My wife and I met some relatives for dinner at the Rib Crib. The wait staff was very friendly and efficient, the place was clean, and overall we enjoyed our time there. But the ribs seemed a little overcooked and dry to everyone in our party. I guess we were expecting better from a place called the Rib Crib.

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...
