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.

Parking is kind of crowded. There's outside seating. Well maintained/clean place with friendly waiters. Somewhat expensive, sorry can't say specifics. I'd check over the menu online before arriving. The ribs are very good and you have a lot of flavor choices. Gone on, try it out if you love meat!

This place is located in a planned neighborhood called Prospect just south of town. Except for a recommendation from a friend we wouldn't know it was there. We tried the ribs and a pulled pork sandwich. The ribs were very good and done in a Kansas City style. The pork sandwich was tender and lean but not as flavorful as... More

This place was recommended by a friend and did not disappoint. We did the 3 meat platter of pulled pork, turkey and the hot links. Pulled pork and hot links where good and the turkey was good just not the best I've ever had. Service was good and friendly it felt like a family run place. Ordered a piece of... More
