Great food at a sensible price. Place is small with tight tables but still worth a visit. The staff are friendly and this place has no pretense.

The owner Adam treats his employee's so badly. He yells and curses at them for no reason. His kids steal money out of the cash register and his wife steals tips from the servers. I refuse to support "people" like that.

Tried to hire them to cater a 100 person event and they won't even call me back. Left 5 messages for Adam and nothing. Finally tracked Adam down at the north location and he promised to call me back and that was two days ago. He complained of being overwhelmed and that I should understand. I am sympathetic to things... More

This unassuming small restaurant set in a former donut shop does an excellent job on barbecue. We ate on a Sunday afternoon, we're very impressed with the wait staff. After seeing what another diner was eating, I ordered the ribs and my wife had chicken. A half order of ribs was 7 very large meaty ribs, cooked to "falling off... More

So I'm heading south and craving for real BBQ and see the great reviews! We decide to give it a try. Small building but those can be the best. I go for the brisket which was moist but lacking flavor. The best part of my meal were the greens. Mac and cheese reminded me of what you get at KFC.... More

This was our first time ever eating at Adam's Rib and we both loved it, we wondered why we had eaten at every other BBQ place in Gainesville but never seemed to get to Adam's. Very well worth the price and perfect flavor and tenderness of of both turkey plate and pork plate plus its REAL southern style vegatables.
