Excellent Ribs

Very clean new place. We live in Mooresville but never ate here before tonight. I always see it as #1 to 3 on Trip advisor. I don't think its the best restaurant in town but I'm sure it has the best ribs. Ribs fall off the bone. We had ribs with hickory bbq sauce which was excellent. We also had... read more

One of the foods I most look forward to when I'm in NC is BBQ - love pulled pork and ribs. I'm used to having a number of different "sauces" on the table in a squirt bottle, so I can try several and pick the best one. Here you have to tell them ahead of time - and hope you... More

Came in on a Friday afternoon on our way to savannah off the interstate. Found on trip advisor. Seated right away. They did have a lunch menu. 7.99 specials. I had the 1/3 ribs & fries. The fries are waffle coated in a breading. I am wheat free so I could not eat them. The ribs were average. I did... More

I am a bbq snob. This was great. The ribs were falling off the bone. Pulled pork was great and a great price. Server was super nice. Will make this my go to spot for BBQ from now on.

Here visiting from Connecticut, this came up as #3 place to eat. I always follow trip advisors comments and I'm never disappointed. The 7 of us, one child's dinner came to 100.00$, not bad! That included appetizer, drinks, meals, 2 of which was their "sampler". Ask for the sampler, it was a little bit of everything and fantastic! The pulled... More

Recently spent some time at Carolina Ribs on the Run's new location in the Port Village shopping center (across from Lowe's Hardware on 150). The space is huge (especially compared to the old location off Brawley), but the food is still great. Love the pulled pork with honey BBQ sauce and their hush puppies! Generous portions (lunch the next day).... More

The food was very good and filling. We had excellent service from our waitress, Donna. It's amazing how your food tastes even better with good service. We will gladly recommend Ribs on the Run to our family and friends.

We had Alex and he was a very good server! Will definitely visit again. At first glance we were like, hmm... a little pricy, but sooo worth it!!
