Had someone recommend I try this. I had never visited Rib Crib before, and I must say I was impressed. The food was great and the portions were very generous.

This restaurant has good food, reasonably priced and great wait staff. They also have amazing desserts! Big plus for a bbq joint. They are definitely on our rotation of local restaurants.

I have been here several times and the food and staff are amazing! It is a lot more than BBQ! They offer wonderful sandwiches (club, pigman, chicken and philly grillers) and quite possibly the best burger in Searcy! A must try!

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!
