N'laws recommended this place to eat. They served good size portions and the food was not bad to eat. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but I can't complain. I had the briskit and it was tender and moist.

We came here on the recommendation of a friend. I was not disappointed. The ribs were juicy and the sauce (especially the hot one) was delicious. I especially love their cole slaw. It is not dripping with mayonnaise and it is not too vinegary tasting. We will definitely be back!

This place was a pleasant surprise. The decor was nice, but not over done in the country theme. In fact, there is artwork by Georgia folk artist Jon Whiddon. All the ladies in my group had the BBQ chicken and it was delicious. We were there for dinner, but ordered from the lunch menu and it was just the right... More

After my last visit, in which the food was good, my family and I visited Rib Country again about a week later. Unbelievably, the service was worse than the previous visit. In fact, it was some of the worst service I've ever experienced. The waitress, Taylor (I know this not because she introduced herself to us, but because I heard... More

I was in the Murphy, NC area for business recently and was looking for a place to eat a quick dinner. I had eaten several times years ago at Rib Country BBQ and decided to try it again. This time instead of eating inside as before, I decided to try a take out order. I called in and ordered a... More

Rlb Country is a lot like Rib City down home. Same menu little higher prices. Ribs feel off bone. Slaw dry but rest of food was good. B B Q Beans excellent. Only negative was slaw and limited number of sides to choose from.

This is not a hometown stand on the side of the road...it is an efficiently run, large BBQ place. That said, they do it right. Good service, good food. Great ribs. (I am not a connoisseur, just know what I like). I wish they had a Sweet Potato side dish (I think they used to the first time we went... More

We were in Murphy after rafting and couldn't really agree on where to eat. We spotted this place and ended up here. Two of us had BBQ. It was quite good, but cooked without any flavor of it's own, it definitely needed sauce. The baked beans were excellent, but the apple sauce was very runny. Two of our party had... More

We've been to this restaurant about half a dozen times. Their food and service is very consistent, and consistently good. Rib really do fall off the bone, and service has always been good. One time in the last 5 years we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, but we got to meet and talk to some very nice... More

I'm not usually a fan of BBQ, but my family is. We had a nice dinner visit on a Friday night and we're able to get a comfortable table for 9 without trouble. The staff was very friendly, and the food was quite tasty. Kids 3 and under eat free off the kids menu. BBQ Chicken was really moist and... More
