Great Ribs

I was in town for business and had my teenage daughter along. While I am not a big rib eater, my daughter is a connoisseur. She was very impressed, she was a little worried at first because the dish she ordered stated it contained 4 ribs and she can eat a rack by herself. However, when they... read more

We try this place every so often when we are shopping at Lucky's Market, but it never gets much better than OK. Not bad, just not really worth a drive over to NW 13th Street. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

Get the pork sandwich and rib special, it was delicious! The greens are some of the best I've ever had.

Great BBQ turkey, great ribs, good pulled pork and chicken. Mediocore side dishes and bread. Many BBQ places in town but this one of the better ones.

Small restaurant, no beer, no atmosphere but, the absolute best ribs I have ever tasted. The sides look great as well. I had collards and fries which were great. About a dozen different sauces. Really friendly staff.

Adam's has good food, but it is not five star! But hey you're not paying for five star neither. Their is plenty of food brought out and all at a good price. One of the best cheep eats in Gainesville! My only complaint is the tea was a little too sweet, but if you got half sweet and half unsweetened... More

The restaurant has a large selection of sauces you can try on your ribs, The ribs are big and Juicy and moist. They also serve very good pork sandwiches. The service is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

We often make Adam's a stop when we're in Gainesville. The food is consistently good and they keep the tea glass full. The smallest rib plate with two sides is more than I can eat, and the same can be said for the pulled pork. It's a simple place, very informal, with bar stools for lone guests and tables around...

Both locations are great I personally prefer the location closer to shands but that is because I work at shands. They always have resonably priced lunch deals and they're greens are great. They have pretty friendly staff and FYI if your trying to get lunch call after 1030 they usally don't know ahead.
