This NW 13th Street place has probably doubled in size since moving down a couple doors. Plenty of tables and tasty food. Specials on the board outside hooked us. Smells great, tastes great. We did ribs and pork sandwich. Friendly servers.

These are the best slow smoked tender ribs around. I think my afternoon orders might be even more tender, but it is an amazing place to eat ribs or pick up ribs to go. Lots of sauces, my favorites are the sweet bbq sauces.

Loved the rib sandwich and slaw. We all had the same thing including frys and all really liked it. People are friendly. The banana pudding was a 4. Not enough bananas.

Good ribs. Like some seriously good ribs. Price is very reasonable for the amount of meat that you get, which is an ungodly amount of meat. Imagine like a big rib and then add like three more inches of rib, and that's what you're working...More

Great food, ribs and other food at very reasonable prices. Two things we noted - only plastic knives and forks (couldn't or wouldn't supply others on request) and the drinks - served in plastic cups - way, way too large.

Hi, delivery is an option when you order online, but it looks to me like a food delivery service that is separate from Adam's Rib Company actually does it. (I have never tried to get delivery.)
