Can't beat the ribs here. Love the July special of take home rack for $6>99 when you purchase a rack in house.

Just ate at Rib City again and loved it. Food is reasonably priced and the ribs are the best in Venice, Fl. Also great are the onion rings with the spicy ranch dressing--yum.

Rib City is a great place to get barbeque beef, pork or chicken to bring home. They offer 4 different sauces to please most tastes. The restaurant is convenient and welcoming if you would prefer table service as well.

In fairness, we used to live in Kansas City and we have pretty high standards for BBQ. We had heard good things and went to Rib City on a Monday night. We ordered the Feast for Two so we could sample several of their offerings....More
