Good barbecue

Lunch there was pretty tasty. Big portions, too. My ribs were really delicious. Small restaurant. Tables are a little too close together for my taste. Overall, a good visit.

I loved the atmosphere of this restaurant, today was my families first visit. We were very impressed, the ribs were out of this world! They smoke them with a rub on them, then coat them in a sauce, then smoke them some more. Great flavor, very tender, moist, and VERY MEATY! Great service, clean place, and great food. I will...

Great lunch spot for the guys, small diner crowd so most of the lunch time business is take out. I sat in for a few minutes and the majority of the business was pick up. Good portions, okay flavor. I expected a little more from the ribs on flavor since it was their specialty - but they were prepared well.... More

Great smoke and whole lot of sauce choices make this good BBQ. However, the amount of steaming made for too much sogginess to call it great. The sides were all good, especially the greens and okra. This location (North) had the disadvantage of no beer. The south location (Near Archer on 13th) has beer if that makes a difference to... More

After a chilly morning of golf we pulled up the TA app for restaurants near us for lunch and saw this place was only 5 minutes away and BBQ sounded good to us. What a great call. Don't be fooled, the place doesn't look like much from the outside (but then again, what great hole in the wall does?) but... More

We had six family members for lunch. We all ordered different dishes. But we all agreed on one thing....everything was prepared perfectly. I look forward to going back soon.

I was really excited to try some of the best Gainesville north Florida BBQ. I got the ribs and brisket. Mac ok at best. Some rib pieces were super tough :( good flavor a little tough . The brisket chucks were chewy not tender sooooo wasn't crazy about it. The highlight of Gainesville were first Maganitude brewery brand new

I first ate at Adam's Rib Co. during my last semester as a student at UF and I instantly fell in love. This is the best BBQ I've ever had. I especially like their pork sandwich meal, which comes with two huge sides. Their sandwiches on the garlic toast are the best! Now whenever I come back to Gainesville for... More

My fiancé and I have been to Adam's twice and we cannot get enough of it! We love Adam's BBQ even more than Sonny's and the other chain BBQ restaurants! The food is always out of this world and the service is always great. We have had a hard time finding a hard time during the typical lunch time but... More

I eat lunch at Adam's Ribs about once a month. I love the pork sandwich with two sides. The food is always good, and the service too. Sometimes hard to find a seat, but it is worth the wait. I certainly would recommend Adam's to people looking for some good BBQ.
