Okay food good service.

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... read 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.

This food was the worst thing I have ever had to pay for. The fries were soggy with grease, the mac and cheese was bland. The ribs and wings were terribly dry. Will never go back, save your money.

This small smokehouse is near down town and the University district in Salem. It is pretty easy to find and there is street parking out front. I walked in the front door and scent of familiarity hit me right in the olfactory center. Smells like my favorite BBQ place "Jacks". Ironicly the BBQ is very different at these two great... More

Funky is a very good way. Great atmosphere. Extremely helpful counter staff. Great choice of of local brews. Park on the street, there is no lot in the back. Due to my work, I am fortunately able to sample BBQ from all over the country. Adam's is a solid performer. The tri-tip is solid but a little underwhelming. The real... More

This place usually has a line out the door for lunch and the reason is clear. It has KILLER BBQ! Don't go here for a salad, go for the beef brisket or smoked chicken or salmon. The prices are great, the food never disappoints! There is even live entertainment some weekdays. awesome place if you love meat!
