A great overall experience. It has wood decor (it is a BBQ place). The wait staff have been very friendly every time we go. They have a senior club, you get 2 dollars cash every visit if you show the card. The ribs are very good as is the chicken and pork.

We went to Michelbob's for dinner. My husband and son ordered Combo-plates. The one with ribs and pulled pork was the best Combo! I ordered a Garden Sallad with Sirloin Steak on top. The salar was great and The steak on top was probably the best I've had in man years. So tender and tasted sooo good! The waitress was... More

So this was a favorite for me in the early 90's as they were then the championship ribs they so proudly claim. Unfortunately, things have changed and those famous ribs (in my opinion) are no more. What I noticed on this last trip to the diner was that the rack of ribs are now being sawed in half and the... More

Always excellent, amazing ribs, great service and fun decor. Good choice of draft beers too. We've been visiting for past 25 years never had a bad meal or experience - that's some going keeping such high standards for that length of time. Highly recommend a visit.

We were staying at Springhill Suites Hotel and were tired so we decided to bring food to our room so we could have a relaxing dinner and bottle of wine. We ordered a full rack rib dinner and a baked potato as an additional side since we were splitting the meal. There was plenty of food for both of us.... More

My husband and I booked a trip to Marco Island. We had never been before so I looked at Groupon to see what was available. We purchased a $17 voucher for $30 worth of take out. It was totally worth it! After one day of fishing we stopped in and got two racks of ribs. They were incredible! We highly... More

We have been here on four other visits and enjoy the food every time. I have a full rack of babyback ribs which were the best ribs I have ever had. My wife had a combo of ribs and beef. There was so much beef we took it back to our room for lunch the next day
