Was near our Hotel and recommended by staff. Very close to the State building. Portions were plentiful and staff helpful. Ok for a visit

“Down to earth local eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

On the outskirts of downtown this unassuming rib house offers a homely bar-b-cue style cuisine. Unlike most restaurants you order your food from the bar and collect it yourself when it is ready. Lots of choice on beers and surprisingly good wine. The food is mostly bar-b-cue style ribs, pulled pork etc. the result is the whole place is smokey. You can eat outside on a terrace. Food quality is good with generous portions. This is a different experience at a reasonable price. Recommended for something unusual.

“YUMMMMM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

LOVE Adam's Rib. They have a variety of BBQ sauces (homemade) and everything is good. The last time I went it seemed like it needed a good deep cleaning, but the food still tastes great

“Always Hit This Place in Salem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We really like this barbeque place. It's your typical barbeque joint but the food is really good. Love the sweet potatoes and the turkey. It's one of the places the whole family goes to in Salem.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

I love baby back ribs, and this was the first BBQ restaurant I've visited that didn't offer them. Instead I ordered pulled pork (above average) and brisket (terrible), and the sides were mediocre as well. Very disappointing.
