They serve the best ribs EVER! Had a big serving of riblettes, mouth-wateringly good and not soaked in a sweet sickly sauce. Will definitely be returning. The walls are amusing!

Every time we are in town, we stop here at least once. Rib City may be the best ribs I have ever had. Pull apart and eat off the bone. The sauces are fantastic and we always bring bottles home. The rib platter is great with a baked potato and corn cobette, maybe a salad to offset some of the... More

The ribs are very tender, they fall off the bones. The service was excellent. Good hearty portions. Will be coming back.

I have tried other items but always go back for the ribs. Great flavor and they fall off the bone! Coleslaw and baked beans to round off the ribs!

Visited Rib City after seeing the reviews on TA. No smokehouse, the sliced beef was Eye of Round or something else and sliced very thin, but not Brisket. The Sliced Turkey was like a sliced turkey you buy from the grocery store as the beef was. The chicken was the best of the 3, but again roasted chickens at the... More

Grabbed a rack of ribs for take out. The portion felt a bit small but when considering the price against other rib places I have gone to I still consider good value. Taste of the ribs sans sauce was very good. Fall off the bone as well. I selected their Carolina/mustard sauce for the ribs. I enjoyed the sauce also.... More

Always enjoy eating ribs here. The Baby backs are fork tender and delicious. Different kinds of sauce for them. I can't rate anything but the ribs because that is all I order here! All the sides are delicious as well.

We've eaten at the restaurant a number of times and have been very satisfied. Food is good and hot and service is attentive. We recently ordered take-out and had a few issues. The following day, we stopped in and spoke to the Manager. She was very apologetic and made everything right in our eyes. I was very impressed with their... More
