A great barbeque experience

If you have a tough time deciding what to order at a barbeque place, this is the place for you. Order the Dinner for Two...a huge platter with a full rack of ribs, pulled pork, 1/2 chicken, and beef brisket all perched on a bed of the best fries we'd eaten in a long time. Comes with sides of... read more

I'll start by saying this is the second time I have eaten at this chain, and I won't do it a third. My first experience was at the Murphy location where my plate (of cold food) was literally thrown down in front of me. My husband's drink was the only one that stayed filled and our waitress was as rude... More

Rib Country has delicious, tender ribs and not expensive. Their roasted chicken is our favorite take-out meal (probably once a week or so). Don't order the steak; it is lousy. The brisket ranges from the the rubbery to the sublime. Ask the waitress for a sample of it, before you order. The pulled pork is about what you would expect... More

Baby ribs with little meat on them. Popular probably only because there's no other rib place anywhere within 20 miles. Very, very disappointing compared to any Atlanta ribs.

Passing thru town and decided to try something other than McDonalds and glad we stopped. Our waitress did a great job of getting our food fast and the bbq was tasty. They give you a great choice of sauces. Bar B Q snobs - read my words - this is not the best Bar B Q you will ever eat...that... More

We eat here frequently and the food is always good. The staff is friendly and they have a very nice family atmosphere. Always open for lunch and dinner. Great for catering and take out also.

We were told that this was a good place to eat--the guy that told us must have the taste buds of an opossum. I have tasted all kinds of barbeque in my 72 years on this earth. it is one of my favorite foods. On a scale of 0 - 10 this rated a negative zero! What a waste of... More

Wonderful pulled pork BBQ, tasty sauce, and the the fried apple pie with ice cream was divine!! The onion loaf was a new experience for us; it's the restaurant's "take" on a "bloomin onion". It was very tasty!

Love Rib Country - from the amazing onion loaf appetizer to the ribs (the star of the place) to the lighter fare smoked turkey, there is something for everyone here - and their desserts are also very good.
