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

I've never been much of a fan of this restaurant but I have family members who enjoy it so I visit from time to time. One every previous visit except the last one, my food has been cold. How hard is it to serve hot food?? This time, my food was warm (not hot) but a couple of our party... More

Rib Country was recommended by a friend in Fla before we left for our trip. I had the babybacks and I honestly had to say they were awesome!!! Never tasted ribs with so much flavor that I didn't have to add BBQ Sauce! Service was very fast and staff was super friendly !!! Can't wait to go back someday, unless... More

Was travelling with family, and 5 kids, to Highlands NC when we stopped at Rib Country for an early dinner. We loved the place, the food was good, the service was excellent, the décor was well-done and the prices very affordable. We passed it during the return trip and the kids all wanted to stop again, lol. I can highly... More

Simple BBQ/local family style decor. Don't let it steer you away if you are not familiar with this storefront approach. Service was pleasant and helpful. Waitress helped determine what matched oir appetites. The pulled pork sandwiches were yummy with one side. Enough food to fill you up and make your belly happy. Pulled pork dinner is the way to go...

We stopped at this restaurant to eat after a long day of driving to the mountains. I'm not a big bbq fan but we were all starving so we figured we'd give it a try. I'm so glad we did. It was the best bbq any of us has ever had. My husband and I shared a platter that had... More

We came to blue ridge looking for a bbq place and most were closed on Monday. So we found this place. Service was great. We shared a platter. Ribs were okay. Pulled pork was lukewarm. The baked beans were very thick and not good. The cole slaw was good and the tea was excellent. We ordered the peach cobbler it... More
