In our opinion, these are the worst ribs we have ever eaten. The silverskin was left on which is disgusting. They were dry and stringy with very little meat. The dry rub they used tasted strange and not in a good way. The corn muffins were stale, dry, and crumbly. The hush puppies were black and cremated. On the plus... More

This little family owned restaurant is out of this world. A friend recommended it and I'm so glad we listened. We got there not too long before closing and felt really guilty and the staff was just as friendly as could be. The BBQ was finger licking and the hush puppies…yum! We took two hand pies back to the hotel... More

I ordered a two meat combo with two sides. The pulled pork was very dry. The brisket was scraps sitting in grease. After soaking two napkins in grease, I was so disgusted that I just gave up. I should have returned it to the girl at the window. Corn muffin soaked up so much grease it wasn't edible either. Potato... More

We went to Adam's Rib during a busy lunchtime. There was a line at the counter so we waited. They service was fast and they kept the line moving quick. On a recommendation from my friend I ordered the cheeseburger. My friends got pulled pork. The food came out quickly (especially for as busy as they were). My fiends' pulled... More

There are lot's of rib places and most are disappointing. Adam's Rib was excellent. Great flavor, multiple sauce choices and a fun environment. I would happily return next time I find myself in Salem.

Stopped in and had dinner there last night. Get the half rack if pork ribs. Fantastic. There are a number of different sauced to choose from. And if you get a piece of pie, beware it is huge.
