The Rib House has been a staple in the Prospect community of Longmont for many years - a nice place to have some decent BBQ, especially if the weather cooperates and you can eat outside on the patio... inside is OK but nothing special. The ribs, for which they stake their reputation on are a little different than what you... More

The rib house is situated in the small subdivision of Prospect in south Longmont. It has been a local favorite for many years. The portions are huge and the sides are are outstanding. I highly recommend the cheesy corn, chipotle potato salad or the coleslaw. You should not pass this restaurant up.

We stopped here for dinner on a drive home from Estes Park, and split a complete rack, with medium sauce. Holy mackerel, the line to order is completely understandable. GREAT food, great value, good service, comfortable casual atmosphere. Already looking forward to returning

Although somewhat hard to find--its in a new development south of Longmont--The Rib House was definitely worth the drive. Seriously good barbecued meets, including brisket and ends. Although very popular for takeout, there is a pleasant patio for outdoor dining. Only negative was the cheesy corn side-dish which had a slightly sour taste; everything else was delicious.

DH had seen an ad in the local paper for a $13 Buffet today. I called the restaurant when it opened, asked my questions and arrived around 1:30 PM. We had eaten here years before, when they first opened in the Prospect n'hood. The outside patio was inviting........several tables were filled. For whatever reason, the inside eating area does not... More

Beef and pork ribs were really great, and literally fell off the bone. Brisket, while good, was a little dry. They have great barbecue sauce, gluten free, if you are into that. The place is bigger than it looks from the front. It was a little confusing where to enter, but duh, the front gate opens. You place your order... More

We've always enjoyed BBQ, especially when traveling down south. While I enjoy the dry rubbed Kansas City style, I just tend to leave feeling I have paid too much for the meal. Service tends to be somewhat cool and impersonal, in my experience. However, the ribs are very good!

This place has never been busy. It's pretty expensive, for what you get, and the ribs would never make it in the South. I keep coming back, hoping that my disappointing experiences are an anomaly, however, I'm 5 for 5 on mediocre ribs. If this place wasn't one of a handful of restaurants in Prospect, I doubt they'd exist. If... More

Without a doubt the best BarBQ in Colorado! The meat is fall off the bone, the flavor is excellent, the sauce is to die for, the sides are just what you would expect for BarBQ. The service is great. The atmosphere is also just perfect. I can't say enough good things about Chef Extraordinaire. Awesome!!
