“Pretty good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

So today after a long day in the Sun we stopped in & grabbed take out. The girl behind the counter was new & she smiled, so I have patience for that.
The restaurant was almost empty.

We got our food & I said I can't wait to go home & try it, & the man responded well that is my priority or that the least on my list today.
What the hell is that suppose to mean ?
The wings were ok, typical fried chicken.
The sides were average & good.
The ribs on the other hand were awesome, the spicy sauce was great & the ribs practically fell off the bones.
I have had BBQ all over Canada & the US.
This is one of the best.

“Pretty serious BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

As the name implies, BBQ chicken and ribs are their specialty. This place has become an icon in Antelope. Each morning before opening, you can see and smell the chicken being cooked on the outdoor grill. The food is good as BBQ goes. Try the sampler if you are not sure about what to get. Lots of good side dishes too.

“Better food than service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I haven't been to this restaurant in a while. The food was good but the woman behind the counter was not happy to see customers. I won't go back.

“AWESOME BBQ!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We ordered a catered 2 meat BBQ meal for 25 people for a family gathering and picked it up at the restaurant ourselves. The folks running this place were so friendly, like we'd known them for years when in fact, we'd never been there before. Even better, the food was perfect and all the family loved it and there was plenty of food for the price. Would definitely eat here again. Thank you so much!

“Very good barbecue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

House of Chicken and Ribs is one of the few good places for either dine in or take out in the Antelope area. You simply can't go wrong with any of the barbecued choices. The service is always warm and friendly so it's a pleasurable experience beyond the food.

While the barbecue is first-rate, the sides are just not as good--they're not bad, just not up to par with the meats. Overall, House of Chicken and Ribs is definitely a place that you'll keep going back to.
