First time

My family tried Rib Country for the first time, it's was very good and large portion for the money. The staff was friendly. The restaurant was very clean and plenty of seating. I would recommend visiting any of the locations. We also purchased the pecan apple butter.

Most of the time when I eat barbque I leave full and always leave food behind. Today, I left and went to find food. I traded my three choices of sides (fries,slaw,beans) for a side salad or pay extra. How would I have known it was a small bowl of bagged lettuce with no flavor. The dressing has a terrible... More

We have eaten at every restaurant in this regional chain and consider this the worst of them. I've often had dried out left over pulled pork but usual sides are great. Servers are great and prices good. Our complaint is that somebody feels the need to mop the floors most of the times we've been there. Yes, we are late... More

The food is average for Bar-b-que establishments. It is conveniently located on the main highway through town. The prices seem a fair value.

We first experienced Rib Country when we came up for a wedding in September and we were pleasantly surprised by the down home dining experience. Loved the "paper bags" placemats! But it was the freshly prepared puled pork, beans and fries that wooed us back for another visit in November. And once more, we were hooked. The aroma rising in... More

This is a very good restaurant. Fast service, etc. I was happiest about the fact that they actually had things that were not pork on the menu. I do not eat pork for religious reasons (and actually try to keep my house rabbinically kosher), so it was nice to see that I could eat something here which makes this unusual... More

Always love the food here but the fried Apple pie is to die for!!!! Always make several visits during a trip to the mountains just for the dessert.

We are not hard to please, travel a lot so we are adaptable. However, meat was too tough to eat as a sandwich. Even after disassembling sandwich and proceeding with knife and fork, we left too-tough meat on plate. When we mentioned this to server, she simply said, "aww, I'm sorry." Wasn't looking for free meal, but this reaction seemed... More

We eat at Rib Country every time we go to Blairsville. Really good pulled pork sandwiches, barbequed chicken and great ribs. Good sides - excellent slaw, and an onion ring loaf that reminds you of the Tony Roma's of yesteryear. This is not gourmet food - but it's really good comfort food! Consistently good food. Good portions. Good service. Happy... More
