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

Visited at lunch based on an associate's recommendation. Food was excellent. Service was great. Smaller restaurant. Had live music. Price was very reasonable for special.

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.

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
