Last minute stop in, first time customer. Had fresh-made buffalo tenders with very good ranch dressing. Also tried smoked beef brisket that had great flavor and smoke ring in the beef. Loved the hot BBQ sauce best.

Stopped in unplanned and so glad we did. We were welcomed as soon as we walked through the door and our waitress (Harley) was on top of getting our drinks and checked in just enough to make sure we were okay but not so much that it bothered you. The fried okra and buffalo shrimp were both tasty; especially since... More

After shopping at Jungle Jim's, we were pretty hungry and had seen this restaurant on our way to the Jungle. There were four of us and we got 2 Feasts for 2! Well worth it! Service was great. The meats were flavorful and not dry. The baked potatoes were done perfectly--which is VERY hard to find at a restaurant, especially... More

On the plus side the ribs were better than adequate. Unfortunately that's it. The service was so slow as to be nonexistent. The serving size was very disappointing - a few tiny, tasty ribs. The salad was fresh but we didn't get it until long after the ribs had been served and the waitress had to reminded that salad had... More

We had just moved here from out of town and were pulling off the highway when we saw the sign for Rib City. My husband and I had never heard of it before so we tried it out! We were extremely happy with the outcome! The Ribs were awesome!!! The smoky flavor was just right and not too much. The... More

BEWARE! A full slab of ribs is approx 9 inches long,1.5 in wide at each end and 2.5 in at the middle. It should be listed as a fool slab. I have never seen a slab of ribs so small, I can't imagine what a half slab would be. Quality was 1 notch above a McRib but only because the... More

Full slab of baby back ribs were ok. Fall off the bone but portion was small and the flavor was nothing like smoked ribs in the south. Chicago Boy.

We eat at Rib City occasionally, it is located next to Hooters in Springdale, it moved from the Jungle Jims complex. We really enjoy their thinly sliced pork where you can choose which of their four bbq sauces you want to add , because they keep them right there on the table. I like the cole slaw quite a bit...

Visited for the first time and would love to go back. No frills place with very large menu. Had the ribs, with a choice of 2 sides (coleslaw was very good, fries were just fries). Ribs were excellent! Also have 3 choices of sauce on the table to add if you want (not really necessary). I tried the "spicy" sauce... More

Don't let the proximity to Hooters scare you off. Rib City is a great barbecue restaurant. We ate lunch there and had three different entrees, each of which was more than satisfying. My baby back ribs were falling off the bone good. My husband's pulled pork was yummy. We were supposed to share, but ue ended up liking what we... More
