Inexpensive for good BBQ. Good portions and kid friendly

Family spending weekend in western nc. After a little sojourn stopped here hungry and was very happy with the experience. Place was busy and the waitresses were abut overwhelmed but no matter since they were super friendly and the food was pretty good for a stop in

Ate lunch at Rib Country, Murphy, NC . I ordered a pulled pork plate in the lunch section to go. I left & decided in my way back to work that I would start on my fries. They're cold, my pulled pork is cold but my garlic toast is hot ! So I called the restaurant & the young female... More

Visiting from Florida we decided to give Rib Country a try, it's a small chain with about 6 locations all within close towns. Husband and I stopped in for dinner and had the BBQ pulled pork and BBQ beef plate both with two sides, both were really good! Servers were attentive and friendly.

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.

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 hot, not... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere,the service and the food was great! Our hostess was very helpful with the places to go in the area, as well with the food to eat. 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
