The portions were small, the onion loaf was good. The service was good, my drink never made it below the half empty mark.

Great food at a reasonable price. Great atmosphere. We were there on Sunday at lunch time. They were very busy, but we didn't have wait for a table or the food. Place is much bigger than it appears. Waitress was gracious and was told to have a "blessed day." Appreciated that.

Service was excellent, comforting BBQ restaurant decor, obviously a popular local place for Sunday lunch. Sides (cole slaw and BBQ beans) were excellent but the pig must have been having a bad day. The pulled pork was on the fatty side and a little chewy. It also lacked flavor unless doused with BBQ sauce. I realize the world is divided... More

Had the half rack of ribs at lunch. The ribs were tender and very flavorful. The slaw and fries were very good. Try the baked sweet potato which is served with a yummy butter, brown sugar, cinnamon mixture.

Good atmosphere, good BBQ. We ordered they baby back ribs and sliced beef brisket plates. The ribs were delicious. The meat was falling off the bone, great sauce. The brisket was good (not great) enough to order again the next time around. We will definitely go back to this restaurant. Don't forget to order the fried apple pie!!! to die... More

Rib Country has been one of our favorite Murphy restaurants since we first came here in 2005. We arrived at our cabin late on Saturday afternoon and all five in our party were exhausted so we opted to call in a carry out order. We were told it would be ready for pickup in 15 minutes so the couple we... More

The ribs here are great and the accompanying side orders also very good. The atmosphere is casual - bench booths throughout - and the service is slightly on the slow side. (Maybe they gotta kill the hog first, when you order your ribs?) I liked the creative "tool kit" of paper towels, sauce and spices that they position at every... More

All I can say is that it was yummy! I had the Barbeque Chicken and loved it. Everything was prepared fresh, served with a smile and priced right. Although I did not have the ribs I am sure they are incredible because almost every table was enjoying them.
