Great family restaurant

This is a pretty good rib restaurant catering to famlies. They have a good selection of bar-b-que items. The baby back ribs are always nice and the meat falls off the bones. Good lunch specials make it popular with many workers in the area.

My advice....don't order the ribs at Rib Country. Mine arrived dried out and hardly any meat on each rib. Very disappointing. I arrived around 7 PM on a Saturday night, and although seated right away, I had to wait a very long time for my meal. The disappointment continued to the checkout. I had to wait in line for at...

We've eaten here many times over the years. The food is very good, and we've always found it consistent. Their pulled pork is the best in north georgia!

I normally don't rate a restaurant I don't like, In this case I am going to break my own rule. There aren't a lot of BBQ joints around and this place is a chain of sorts in this area. Frankly, there is nothing good to say about this BBQ joint. The bread is awful, the slaw is terrible, the sauces... More

I visited this restaurant this past weekend. Big mistake. We often eat at the Murphy location but this was terrible. Our ribs were 2 to 3 inches wide and covered with a 1/4 inch thick layer of fat. I have NEVER had ribs before that had fat on them like this. There was hardly any barbeque sauce. $18 is a... More

Ribs were excellent, coleslaw best I ever ate, and beans were good but a little sweet for my liking. Sara our waitress was a delight and gave us excellent service.
