“Yes, you CAN get BBQ on a Sunday in Oklahoma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Many a time we have driven thru McAlester but this was our first time to stop here. SO glad we did! We had been looking for a BBQ lunch stop since Muskogee, and all others were closed on Sunday. Not Rib Crib! I am really picky about ribs (hardly EVER try them...always find tough or chewy or fatty) but here we shared a half slab of dry rubbed spare ribs (about 8 ribs) and 2 sides (try the cowboy beans). These ribs were so flavorful and tender...I could gently scrape the meat right off the bones! Ate at the bar and our waitress was very sweet and attentive. Highly recommend!

Even as tired as I was from a long drive, I was able to enjoy the good food and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We had the cheese fries, platter selection and a cheeseburger. After some small issues with the order (gravy for mashed potatoes was not on the side as we asked, chopped peppers on top of the cheese fries, wrong sides...) the manager came and apologized. She made it right and the service was just fantastic. The burger was really good and the pulled pork is really yummy. Will def. come back!

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I are here on my way back from Pauls Valley and was there for lunch. The restaurant was very nice and they have a great lunch menu at very reasonable prices. The wait staff was very friendly and I definitely recommend people to eat there.
