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.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I am visiting 29. The food is good. Love those ribs! The waitress even remembered me from when I was there the first time! Very nice and personable! The prices are good too!

My husband and I had a T-bone steak and a sirloin steak the The Rib Co., both steaks with salads and baked potatoes. The place doesn't look of much, but the food is VERY good - really good meat and salads, and the waiter was really nice, too.

My wife and I had the sampler platter which featured 5 different preparations and varieties (spare, short, beef, etc). Each was prepared differently. It was a great way to sample the menu. Very generous portions which we were ready for after 12 mles of hiking in Joshua Tree National Park! Corn Muffins were delicious. Beans were average. Good service--prompt and... More

After reading the reviews for the Rib Co. I was looking for a great meal. I was wrong. The waitress did not seem to want to be bothered by us. Ordered steak and ribs. When the waitress asked us what side dishes we wanted with the meal so rudely placed the menu back in front of my wife and told... More

Our family loves ribs! We have had ribs all over the country and our family voted these the best. They smoke their ribs all day. The rub is just right and the BBQ sauce has just the right balance of sweet, tart, and kick! Their sides are all in house home made. Perfect Mac and cheese! Homemade chips are yummy!... More
