The ribs here are very tender and good. It's kind of a small place so be prepared in case you have to take it to go. The wings were good too. My son had a sandwich and it had lots of pork piled on the bun. Good place to get some BBQ.

The pulled pork sandwich was very good. The amount of pork was plenty for lunch and the BBQ sauce was amazing. The Mac and cheese was bland but since it was just a side it's not a big deal. The BBQ sauce is the key as I think it would go great with anything on their menu.

Great BBQ the smells got me in and worth the stop. I had take out and enjoyed it for two nights. The shack is moving 3 blocks east in a few weeks but I'm sure the BBQ will still be great.

The food is wonderful and the staff is quick to get your order and serve it up. If you really want some good BBQ stop here.

This place delivers on BBQ and value. It is a true BBQ joint as a hole in the wall that it should be. The kitchen is a little slow for BBQ standards but the value is incredible. Get the C dub it's a can't miss.

We followed the Smoking Rib van towing a smoker across the Courtney Campbell and Bay-side bridges all the way to their restaurant on our way home from a 500 mile motorcycle trip yesterday [Sunday the 24th of April 2016]. We were starved. The smoke drew us like a magnet. Along the way we met another Biker who followed us to... More

The Smokin Rib Shack isn't really set up for dining in ... however, the BBQ and sides are over the top. You can make a meal out of the Wings. Great for take-out but they only have about 4 tables. Whoever is cooking here knows what they are doing!

This looks like a small shop that would have excellent ribs, pork and chicken. Unfortunately, it doesn't. While the sauce is pretty good, the ribs and pulled pork were disappointing. The pulled pork was served on top of white bread but if you didn't keep it well sauced it was way too dry.

I ordered to go and spent $35.00 on ribs that I could not eat. The meat was tough although the sauce tasted good. I took the food to a dinner and saw many uneaten ribs on their plates. I called to let the store know I wasn't happy and it was clear that my opinion didn't count for much worth.... More
