“Ribs, BBQ and sides...are the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Everything served at the Rib Crib is fresh and cooked onsite.
The BBQ Brisket, Chicken and Pork are all some of the best served in the South. If you are in the mood for some good ol Southern BBQ and Ribs; then the Rib Crib is your place.

“Slow service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We waited about 10 minutes if not more before even being welcomed, then waited another 10 minutes before being seated, then we waited another 10 minutes before my husband went to ask if there was a waitress serving in the area we were seated, he was told that yes but she was very busy, then when the hostess came to our table and said she would take our drink order she stated that they were short handed, so not sure what the truth was, either the waitress was busy or they were short handed, well the hostess went to get our drinks the waitress came along and took the two tables that were seated after we were orders and walked away without even asking if we were okay or anything. The hostess came back with our Cokes and ended up having to talk our orders. The service was very slow, we waited awhile for our food to come, then we were asked by 3 different people if we wanted our drinks refilled, we said yes and finally someone came to refill them. Time for us to pay and the hostess states that she never charged us for our Cokes because of our wait. I won't be going back there again, the ribs weren't that great and the service sucked!

“Excellent Service but Average BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The service was very friendly and our food came out fast. The quality of food however was so-so. I've had good Southern BBQ in bigger cities. The better BBQ, I've learned, is at ma and pa establishments and this place is a regional franchise. It's an okay stop.

“Consistent chain with full menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The service was very good and we were seated immediately on a Friday though the room was packed. The smoked chicken was great and only 125 calories! They do not have many healthy options, but do have salads.
