Great ribs and good prices

This is a place you should not miss if you are in the Burbank/Toluca Lake area. The food is delicious and the portions are excellent. Dine or take out, don't miss it.

We have been visiting Ribs USA for 20 years and all barbecue we have anywhere in the world is rated against RIBS Usa for our family.

Enjoyed a quick meal on a recent business trip. Ordered the 1/2 slab of ribs and small cole slaw. Ribs were good and cooked correctly, not over or under cooked. A bit expensive for a 1/2 slab but tasty meal with friendly server.

Had large take out platter for Mother's Day. Pretty sure baby back ribs were boiled then put in oven with liquid smoke. Yea they fell off the bone but not in a good way, more like mushy way.

It used to be, in the words of Tony the Tiger, G-R-E-A-T, but now it stinks!!! I have to fill up 100 characters or TripAdvisor will not post my review. Aha! Did it!

Let me start by saying that we have been eating here for years, and have always enjoyed it. A few days ago we brought my visiting cousin for lunch there. I had told her how wonderful the bbq was. I asked the waitress if the corn that day was fresh or frozen, she said " fresh", so I ordered it... More

I visited this place, probably for the last time. It seems like the food is not fresh, just reheated and served days later. Everything is over priced for the quality and or quanity that your receive. I hope that this helps. Best- Riley
