The ribs at Rib City Restaurant are the best ribs in southwest Florida. There are many choices for ribs in the area, but none can compare. The onion rings are also excellent.

Very good baby back ribs at this Rib City. I have dined in and utilized take out and the ribs are always very good. We have also had the pork and chicken and both were also good. The service is generally friendly and the food usually arrives quickly. The prices are reasonable for the quality and amount of food you... More

I read the reviews and was hesitant to bring my son, visiting from Boston. I'm SO glad we went! Lucy, our waitress, was quick, attentive and pleasant and the food was absolutely incredible. I've NEVER finished a full rack of baby backs, but I just couldn't stop eating! We can't wait to go back.

I have always wanted to try Ribcity, but sorry that I did. Everything was so dry and bland. Couldn't finish. Tasted like it had been microwaved. Wouldn't go there again.

Finally ate at Rib City. .50 drafts start at 4pm on Weds. I think there were 4 beer choices, but, "fity cent?!" It's a chain and the inside is decorated accordingly. Our waitress was great, very friendly and happy. We started with fried okra. It was good but honestly anything fried is good with me. We both had the ribs.... More

The ribs were just okay for me, I like Famous Daves better if I was comparing to another spot. The atmosphere is very nice on the inside, really large booths for two or families. The sweet tea is very good and if you prefer a baked potato instead of fries wait until 4pm or after. They have a nice lunch... More

I ordered a full rack of ribs. When they came, the length of the rack was about right, but the width was half of what I expected. It seems they cut the rack in half lengthwise, which makes their full rack about the same size as everyone else's half rack. The fries were floppy - uncrisp is the best description.... More

Had dinner here and had heard good things about the chain. Atmosphere was ok, many people eating, but pretty standard overall. The food was ok but certainly not what I expected from a top name BBQ place and certainly not worth the money. Portions were good but quality was just ok, nothing outstanding. The staff was just rude. They did... More

Ribs were ok, doesn't beg me to go back for more. Slaw and beans were excellent. Called in our order for carryout, and service was great.

Ribs were not as good as we expected. Husband ordered full rack of St Louis ribs with one side. Ribs came out on a plate already cut up! Not what was expected for a "rack" of ribs.
