“BBQ the way I like it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

It's been years since I've eaten here.

The bullet proof glass is long gone. The ribs are as I remember them. Sauce is nicely seasoned, not crazy spicy, not boring either.

That tiny cup of cole slaw is great, so are the fries. As far as that gummy white bread under the ribs, you've got to eat some of it to absorb all the other things you're consuming. The guys behind the counter are funny.

Great with beer or diet coke - neither of which are available at Ribs 'n' Bibs.

“Ribs Take away”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

I'm not a huge fan of ribs but my fiance loves it!
Ribs 'N Bibs is the only BBQ restaurant in Hyde Park!
The ribs are tasty!
They can improve the bread that comes under the meat, it is a little disgusting!
Lately this restaurant is close very often!

“What a rib shack should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

We've gone here for years. Friendly people, good ribs -- get the whole slab, don't fool around with rib tips. Ribs and a six pack and friends to eat with -- life doesn't get much better than that.

“Horrible pulled pork sandwich”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

Not sure how this place is still open. The pulled pork was really 90% fat bathed in some rank smelling sauce. I would not go back here for even a free meal.
