Tasty

The onion loaf was really good, and the pulled pork sandwich was lean and plentiful. The waitress was extremely friendly. No problems.

If you like onion rings, try the onion loaf. Regular is a mountain of rings! Unlike most places who attempt to cook these, Rib Country got it right....crunch with flavor. The pulled pork was excellent and the chicken was very good as well. Waiters were very friendly....great stop for lunch!

My first visit to this place was with my parents as a teenager and we loved it! My wife and I stopped for lunch on our vacation this past weekend. I talked about it so much I was hoping that it still would be a great place to eat and once again Rib Country did not disappoint. My wife said... More

We ordered the single person sampler so we could give everything a try (which is more than enough for two people). My son liked the pulled pork and I thought the brisket was absolutely delicious. Great sweet tea and fried apple pie! Our server, Tylin, was very sweet and attentive.

We ordered the Feast for Two as takeout. This included brisket, a bbq chicken breast, rack of ribs, pork bbq, 2 orders fries, 2 orders baked beans, 2 pcs garlic bread,a nd 2 coleslaws for $29.99. Amazing deal! Everything was phenomenal! It fed us for 2 nights! You also get additional bbq sauce.

We were in the area for a family reunion so before heading home found this great place for dinner. To food was large portions (pulled pork) and very tasty. The baked beans are wonderful and don't miss the fried pies to be eaten there with ice cream or take one home. The seating was varied with large wood bench booths... More

Good food and excellent friendly service that is what you will get a Rib Country. Make sure on the way out you try the fried apple pie.

Really enjoyed this place, got the t-shirt. Several good choices for kids menu items. Service was quick and friendly, place was pretty full at lunch time. Only good restaurant in the area, glad I found it on TripAdvisor.
