We had a coupon from Living Social and enjoyed our meal immensely! The smoked flavor was incredible through the pulled pork. We loved the ambiance and the down home style service. We will definitely be back!

If it isn't the best sauce around, why am I ordering Christmas gift sauce from KANSAS CITY? Parents retired to Naples in '81. Annual visits always included at least one stop at Michelbob's. Rack and a half, fries and beans for me. Never a disappointment.

As someone who has been BBQ'in all my life, impressing me is very difficult if not impossible. My wife ordered the half rack with chicken and I ordered the full rack. My Meal: The size of my rack wasn't bad at all for baby backs. The sauce selections were pretty good but if your strictly a dry rub kinda person,... More

As non-Americans, we loved the atmosphere - typical diner with lights signs everywhere and great ambient. It was fully packed with locals and after eating the ribs, we did know why. Absolutely delicious, service impeccable and price cheaper we expected. Paid $45 for two people for starters, main and drinks. I can only recommend Michelbob's Ribs, it deserves to be... More

We both ordered the ribs; mine with a Caesar salad, my husband's with the beans, coleslaw and French fries. The ribs were good, not real meaty, but good taste. My Caesar salad was great, but my husband's french fries could' have been deep-fried longer - they were soft and not much taste. The beans had kind of a sweet barbecue... More

This casual restaurant claims to have the best ribs in Naples, and we agree. This was our first visit in a very long time. Everything has improved. The ribs, chicken, cole slaw and barbecued beans are delicious; the corn-on-the-cob was a bit tougher than we are used to, but we're accustomed to early season butter and sugar corn from upstate...

We had a $5.00 off coupon for a baby-back rib dinner! The dinner was good, not much meat on the bone! Seemed like it was pre-packaged because it came so quick. We ate on a Friday night in November 2014 about 5:00 p.m. Not sure we are going back!

Michelbobs is our favorite bbq in Naples. We order take out family meals for each birthday celebration. It's very affordable for large groups and delicious. Not only is the ba great, their sides are also the best. If you have a large group to fed and don't feel like cooking, call Michelbobs. Their menu is on their website. You won't... More

This place has been on our to do list for a couple of years on our visits to Naples. It was well worth the wait! A old school restaurant with a great menu and just awesome ribs! Great atmosphere and really good service. Fantastic value for money too!

We had a Living Social coupon and were looking forward to some great ribs.....this was not to be. Michelbob's is a kitchy casual restaurant with hundreds of old Coca-Cola signs everywhere. The seating is wooden tables with benches or wooden bench booths, the type of place where you come for the food. To start with our waitress took the menu's... More
