We were tired of turkey after Thanksgiving and wanted to try something different. We opted to get take-out barbeque for 9 of us. It turned out to be very good and reasonably priced for us. We loved the food and plan to either eat here again or take-out.

Five of us went to dinner the day after Thanksgiving to celebrate my wife's 75th and son in law's 50th birthday. This restaurant was selected because there was something on the menu for everyone and the ribs are always great. Unfortunately not this time. The baked potatoes were so burnt that they were not edible. The ribs were very dry... More

I don't know how anyone can say championship ribs! Portions are small and the food is served lukewarm. Flavor is average, nothing to write home about. Flanigan ri bs in Miami are much better. On the positive side, the place is very cool...lots of Coca Cola memorabilia. Just don't come here if you're hungry!!! If you do, order a double... More

recommondation of other guest in our Hotel. It was really the type of ribs you can get in Germany! poor meat on the bones! And it is not really cheaper than Outback or Longhorn. We liked the ribs of These much better!

We've been coming to Michelbobs for 20 years for their ribs and that is exactly what we did our first visit during our recent holiday - again great. Our second visit I suggested we try the steak but order a half rack of ribs as an extra (so we didn't feel like we weren't missing out!). My wife went for... More

We had driven by many times and decided to drop in for dinner. It felt homey and welcoming inside. I had ribs and my wife chose their feature burger. The rib dinner was excellent and my wife said it was one of the best burgers she had ever had. Service was prompt and friendly. As we winter in Naples, we... More

Went for dinner with my wife. The ribs were excellent. Onion rings also delicious. Our server did a great job and was very friendly. My only complaint was the A/C was so cold we almost froze. Most restaurants are too cold in Florida but this place was really cold.

Thank Bill S
