“Best Ribs Around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Gold Rush ribs are about the best I've ever eaten ... juicy and tender and mouth-watering good! I haven't tried it, but I understand their BBQ chicken is tops as well! The dinner comes with some of the best corn bread I have ever eaten --- worth the trip alone.

“Pretty darn good for on the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This place offers some pretty good dishes. It is the only BBQ I am aware of on the island. The chicken here is excellent and I also always order the green beans. However, the drive to Rib City is worth it if you can get off the island.
