The best ribs in the area. Meat falls off the bones and melts in your mouth. Service is very friendly and efficient

Tender ribs, reasonable prices and really pleasant service from Sherry made this a good stop on a golf trip to the area.

Intimate setting, friendly and helpful wait staff, ribs were some of the best! Menu seemed pretty amazing for a smaller venue...pretty varied and had many options. Our meal was great x4 and we would definitely return

Bar-B-Q place that has very good food, prompt service and reasonable prices. A good value. A wide range of items on the menu. I recommend the beef brisket sandwich...but, you can't go wrong with whatever you choose.

Interesting to me what people think is good bbq around here. We've been to all of them and none are as good as Rib City's ribs and chicken. Cole slaw and a baked potato top it off. Not overly pricey. Good service. Cheap drinks. 79...More
