For a chain, this place is pretty good. Kind of expensive but bbq and ribs normally is. The dynamite salad is absolutely amazing too. So are the fried pickles. They are super nice too if you order to go!

I took the family there at the request of my daughter. She had a craving for BBQ. I had the baby back ribs with potato salad and okra. The ribs were tender and tasty but the left the skin on the back of the ribs; did not like that. My daughter has brisket and she really liked it but did... More

Sat here for 15 minutes. No one ever came to the table. We got up to leave. When we got up a lady noticed and said I was going to come get your drink order. She had passed us 3-4 times and never even spoke 1 word to us. Not to mention, there was 5-6 people standing around the door... More

The BBQ is good here. Nothing "special," but good. It's my preference, but I prefer my BBQ joints to be a little less Chili's/Applebee's and more hole-in-the-wall. Somewhere along the way, the food becomes almost too uniform -- too prepared and less "homemade". It may well be suited for your needs, though, with a group or a family that wants... More

Had a late meal with friends during a horse show. It was late (8:30) on a Sat night. Food was ok but not the best I'd ever had.

Not only was their food superb, the waitresses were especially friendly, attentive and helpful. Can't wait to go back. Family members had the ribs and I had their club sandwich with pulled pork and chicken and it was so tender and flavorful. You can't miss at the Rib Crib!

The food, baby backs & brisket were excellent as always. The problem was we used takeout it was storming out. I called asked if they deliver, put on hold to speak to the manager who said no delivery.

A short skip to this restaurant from our wonderful hotel Quality Inn & Suites. Great ribs, tastes sauces & my son loved his quesadilla. Good prices, quick on pick up & free beverages if your staying in the hotel. Just show your room card. A win/win, Quality Inn & Suites and the Rib Crib!
