I had the baby back ribs with the whiskey glaze. The ribs were just a bit tough but a very good flavor. Nice presentation with spicy beans, coleslaw and cornbread muffins with whipped honey butter. Two of our party had burgers which they said were very good. My only criticism would be the price which I thought was somewhat high... More

Not only is the food excellent, great draft beer, perfect fries, but the staff are very welcoming. No need to dress up to get good food! The restaurant looks rough but it is clean inside.

Oh, the ribs are good! We were tired and hungry after driving for a few hours. It was dark in 29 Palms and it was slim-pickens when it came to places to eat. Always a sucker for barbeque, we navigated the bumpy parking lot and got a seat in the small dining room. Not much for ambiance or temperature control... More

We were looking for a place to eat after spending time in Joshua National park. The hotel recommended The Rib Co and it was only a half mile from where we were staying. It didn't look like much from the outside (or inside) but the BBQ was really good. We had BBQ brisket and onion rings and potato salad. All... More

We spent a night in Twentynine Palms after visiting Joshua Tree National Park and this place was recommended by our hotel staff. Oustanding recommendation. The restaurant had a local feel and was fairly busy on a Tuesday night, but we didn't have to wait for a table and the service was relatively quick. As the title says, their focus is... More

Great tasty food, home prepared daily , hand cut fries, nothing frozen here. We would have been put off by the basic looking restaurant if it hadn't been recommended but enjoyed all the food.

The Ribs and other meats are smoked right in the front year. The meat and the cornbread are great; the beans so-so (too much sauce). Try the ribs with just the rub.

Have eaten here several times and always enjoy the meal, especially on a nice evening to sit outside and enjoy the desert coolness and clear night sky. Have had the ribs several times and always a delight - the rib sampler is usually my go to since I have such a hard time choosing which to have they are all... More
