Being European we are not spoilt when it comes to eating ribs (1/2 Dry Rub - don't go for 1/1 unless you are a T-Rex) but at Rib Co we ate the best I can ever remember having. Coleslaw side was also delicious as were the beans (I am told - not a great beans fan myself), didn't care much... More

We (Swiss couple, 30/27yrs) were on a cross-country road trip when we stopped at The Rib & Co. The portions are almost Texan size ;) The meat was great! And we could even sit outside (ok, only foreigners do that - all the Americans were inside next to the AC).

got the dry rub ribs like my son did! They were OUTSTANDING ribs ($15.99 1/2 slab w/2 sides). We've eaten lots of ribs around the country --- and have an incredible smoker and finally quit eating ribs out because I can make 'em better for cheaper than restaurants. Was in 29Palms spending time with my US Marine son and we... More

We were traveling thru on stopped for the night in Twentynine Palms. Having had a big lunch, we decided to try a beer and nice appetizer rather than a big dinner. The Rib Co. surprisingly fit the bill for us. The server was a super nice lady. She fixed up right up with a nice cold beer and guided us... More

There are not many restaurant choices in Twentynine Palms on Monday, so we gave the Rib Company a try. The ribs were fine - tender but a little dry. The Triple Threat sauce option had more complexity than the other choices. The coleslaw was quite good, crisp and fresh. Beans seemed canned; corn muffins inedible - flabby and bland. The... More

This is one of the best BBQ places in which I've eaten. It is also a testimony to the value of Tripadvisor, as the restaurant would not attract passerby business unless you already knew the reviews. Almost we had was excellent. The pulled pork sandwich was the best I've had at a restaurant. The coleslaw is homemade and very flavorful.... More

We went to this place with high expectations having read the Trip Advisor reviews and were hoping for some good American cooking. We walked into a half empty restaurant and were unsure of whether we needed to be seated or should ask the waitress. The waitress just point blank ignored us, even though we were clearly unsure of where to... More
