Definitely not good enough to go back, the lady working there was very rude to two different customers, then she was very condescending with one of the employees. Now as for the food, not very many options, the meat was dry, the barbecue sauce tasted old, the price was very high for showing up in a plastic tray and paper.... More

Can't find better ribs in Longmont - or on the Front Range. Sit at the Well Bar and have Tracey make you one of his special martinis.

I've eaten here multiple times. Has nice ambiance, food is good, but every time we eat here the wait to get our food is longer and longer. It's never super busy when we go, so don't think that is the cause. Last visit we waited almost an hour from ordering to food delivery. This is a fast casual place where... More

Great variety of ribs with numerous kinds of sauces. Servings are ample; drinks to offer great. A little neighborhood restaurant; off the beaten path, but, well worth the trip. Don't miss. The cheesy corn is delish!

What a surprise... and yet it wasn't! All the locals said this was the place for BBQ and we followed their advice. First of all, it is located in an entirely residential area.... fabulous neighborhood. Food and drink was terrific, great service and outside ambiance. Yummy... you order at the counter and they deliver.

Moved up from Texas in January 2016, had BBQ at a few places. It was good, but no fried okra? Then I discovered The Rib House: fall off the bone ribs, burnt ends and melt-in-your-mouth fried okra. Merry Ann and Tracy Webb are fabulous owner hosts and if you happen to find Tracy behind the bar, oh those margaritas and... More

The Longmont location is the best. I always get ribs there and always good. I used to get fried okra, but since I don't eat wheat anymore, I'll be passing.

Every time we visit Longmont, we have to get our rib fix from The Rib House. Several of the sides are sure to please - cheesy corn, potato salad, and bean salad. The medium sauce has just the right kick to enhance the ribs.

Heard about this place and always on the hunt for good BBQ. It's really clean, tucked away in a residential neighborhood and could get loud if really crowded. You order at a counter and then it's brought to you. There is a full service bar if you want alcoholic beverages. We ordered a slab of ribs, which tasted over smoked... More

There is no accounting for taste, especially in Bar B Que, but this fits my standard. Bar B Que is the way it is cooked, not the sauce on it. The ribs are our family favorite. Meaty, fall off the bone tender, and smokey all the way through. There is nothing fancy nor ostentatious about the place, Just the food.

Thank UncleDon41
