Can't go wrong with Rib Crib. Had a two meat meal and everything tasted great, including the Cowboy Beans and Cole Slaw. Others in my group enjoyed their food, as well.

The staff was amazing!! The good was even better! I got the ribs original and added my own sauce. Some else got the plate with pulled pork and sausage both were equally amazing. The side of mashed potatoes, beans and macaroni was also so good. Range of the cost of plates are between $12.99-$17.99.

My first time to the Rib Crib tonight. This is a set-down restaurant with wait-staff. The service was good and the food tasted great. I had the Cribwich which is a tasty combination of brisket and sliced hot links. The sandwich is served dry and there are three different sauces on the table to choose from. I tried the "mild"...

I found the meat to be pretty tasteless, as in poor flavor. It was catered to us, so I don't know about the pricing.

This place is really good! The BBQ is great! However I prefer their smoked turkey over the signature ribs! ...but the ribs are good as well!

The Rib Crib in Searcy is always on top of their game. The food is great. Nice atmosphere. Clean. Plenty of room for parking your vehicle. You don't feel like you are eating with the parties next to you. It's roomy yet efficient. I love the Rib Crib.
