This restaurant is nice enough. My order taste just fine;; not outstanding. Potatoe salad was bit bland, beef was tasty but not as moist as I would have liked. Service was friendly and timely. My opinion a bit pricey though.

Nice place to eat, friendly staff even though we were in 40 minutes before closing. Most items on the menu were $9.00 and up.

Good food quick service decent prices. Friendly staff. Stayed in hotel behind restaurant and the staff remembered us by name on only our second visit. Stayed 3 weeks and ate there 4 times. They also offer church folk a discount if they bring their Sunday bulletin which i think is great!

Enjoyed the ribs and fixin's while traveling with family. Convenient, clean, fast, nice service and good to above average ribs (sorry I have very high standards for BBQ). We will stop again no doubt - because we pass through to see daughter in college and this stop is perfect and I do recommend the restaurant.

The service was excellent in this off the highway town. The food was good too. It was just as good as all the other chains of Rib Crib. But what really stood out was that the restaurant was clean and the staff was wonderful!

I stopped in to get a to go order of the Ribs & Chicken combo for $13.99. Even though the restaurant was not busy, it took me almost 25 minutes to get the food I ordered. Rib Crib has good food and where I live, service is good. Rib Crib needs to export their service culture when they expand to... More

Called in for evening meal not knowing what to expect, and I have to say that the food was excellent, we will certainly be visiting other RibCribs in other states

My husband and I ate there with another couple. Service was excellent. Food was typical BBQ. Variety of side dishes was pretty limited for one who is diabetic; however, ordering two side salads works out fine.
