Tasty food, quick turnaround

The BBQ food is good in this place. That's evident by a steady stream of customers during lunch. The problem is finding a place to sit. However the staff does a great job of quickly cleaning and resetting the tables and the counter. Pork sandwiches seem to be a favorite, and mine was super tasty on... read more

Very flavorless ribs very watery the coleslaw had a very strange taste to it, and I got the baked beans and all it tasted like was a cinnamon raisin cookie I asked the waitress if they put cinnamon in their beans and she said yes very odd seasoning to put in baked beans

Adam's Rib Co has the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever bought. I highly recommend it. Also, Adam's is one of the only places I can find fried pickles in the chip form and they are always generous in their serving size. To drink, do not pass up their sweet tea. I swear, it is (almost) better than what... More

This place has the absolute best ribs. I got the 4 rib plate that came with 2 sides and garlic bread. Everything was so good. The dining room has limited seating. My favorite part was the selection of bbq sauces they had at least 10 and they were all great. I will be back!!

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.

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 showed up she... More

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
