Killer Ribs

My wife and I were doing some shopping in Murphy and decided to try Rib Country based on the reviews. It was lunch time when we arrived, but it wasn't too crowded. We both got the ribs. They truly fall off the bone. Even better, they have a variety of barbecue sauces to try. My favorite is the... read more

We have eaten here 3 times. Each visit was just okay. The food is okay. The service is okay. The prices are okay. Maybe we're spoiled. We've never been disappointed at any Sonny's. Rib Country seems like a chain trying to be "down home". Nothing special.

She constantly asked us for refills or if we were happy with our food. It was a great first impression and highly recommend eating here! We ate BBQ Ribs, Burgers,... More

My fist visit & the rack of baby back ribs where delightfully tasty! I didn't put any extra sauce on them as they were great & melted in your mouth. Slaw was yummy too! Highly recommend if you're in the neighborhood.

The food was so good and the amounts were over the top. we wanted to taste the local Bbq place. There was not much of a wait, before sitting. Staff was very friendly and quick to suggest the better choices to get the big picture. The flavors of the bbq did not disapoint. We even bought some of the rib... More

Friendly staff, clean, cute decor & quality food. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The bun was grilled and there was no fat on the pork. They did not have a chopped meat sandwich, which I personally prefer. The sweet potato was done perfectly & the brown sugar-cinnamon sauce was spectacular. My husband got the BBQ beef brisket sandwich on... More

This place has great food. I also think they have the best ribs I have ever eaten. We try to go there at least 2 to 3 times a year. It takes us 9 hrs. We go on our way to the NOC in North Carolina.

Good flavor and very moist. the fries were hot and crisp but to top it off we had dessert! Peach cobbler with vanilla... More
