Nice place, good eats

Friends recommended Rib Country to us on a recent visit. On the main drive in town, the place is clean, down-homey with nice staff. My BBQ pulled pork lunch plate was huge. Meat was tender with great flavor. Loved the sauces, especially the tangy mustard based sauce. It's not on the table, so... read more

I ate there this past Sunday with 2 friends. 2 of us ordered the pulled pork sandwich, mine with a side of baked beans and the other person had French fries. The 3rd person had a half rack of ribs with a side of baked beans. The sandwich was piled high with pulled pork and we both thought it was... More

We go to this restaurant every time we are in the area. The food is great and service is outstanding. Certainly worth the drive if you are anywhere around Blairsville.

I try pork ribs everywhere I go in the US. But Rib Country id the best ever. Other places either cook them too long or use beef ribs or use larger pork ribs. Rib Country has it down to a science. I've eaten there four times in the last 6 weeks and every time the ribs have been perfect. My... More

Probably the worst experience we have had in quite a while. The combination of bad food, extremely poor service, and drab decor was the perfect storm! The food tasted old, the decor was old and didn't seem as if it had been cleaned in a while, and the service was not only slow but just awful. Save your money and... More

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

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.

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
