Nice suprise

We stopped here to have some southern style ribs. The ribs weren't as amazing as we get here in MO but the bbq sauce was quite good and the service was super friendly. It is worth the stop.

I consider Rib Country, Murphy, NC, one of my "regular" restaurants. So it was with confidence I ordered their "fall off the bone" specialty: a full rack of BBQ baby back ribs. When my meal was delivered I thought the full rack looked quite small and I felt they were certainly not worth the menu price. My server either anticipated... More

Plentiful and delicious food, expected "country" ambiance, very fair prices. Greeted the moment we walked in the door and everyone we were in contact with was very friendly. Servers were prompt, and not at all "intrusive" during the meal. We had plenty to take home for the next day. Ribs were "fall off the bone tender." My husband and I... More

Stopped at this restaurant almost by chance due to an impending storm while riding the motorcycles. This place was in the right place at the right time! Food was very good, staff was very good for the most part. Cashier was a little overwhelmed and it felt as though we were overworking her by wanting to pay our bill. Otherwise... More

While I am no means an aficionado, I sure do like brisket. Rib Country has the best I have eaten. Order the wet cut brisket to make sure it won't be dry. Excellent wait staff, every time.

My partner and I visited - on Monday (when a lot of Murphy's establishments are closed) for Barbeque. I had the smoked turkey open face sandwich (with Texas toast) and french fries. My partner had the lunch portion of Baby Back ribs, with an up-charge side of sweet potato and coleslaw. As mentioned in other reviews - basic environment. Food... More

For finger licking ribs, chicken, and yummy baked beans and garlic bread then a visit to Rib Country is a must. Family friendly atmosphere, friendly staff, and plenty of good food can be found for those from 1 to 99.

Have been here about 6 to 7 times now and it is our place to go on Monday when everything in downtown Murphy is closed for lunch or dinner. They are a good basic rib or pulled pork or chicken joint. They serve on paper with baskets and you have a roll of paper towels for napkins. The food is... More
