Saw the pilon for the Rib Crib and decided to try for lunch. In one word it was fantastic. I had the sliced brisket sandwich. It was huge and great tasting as was the coleslaw. My wife had the Philly cheese steak sandwich and loved it. The fries we crispy and well seasoned. Very fair prices. A sure bet.

Driving home from Colorado taking the tourists route to Wiaconsin. We have had almost every cuisine during our week on the road but still hadn't had BBQ. Based on most of the reviews we decided to give the Rib Crib our business. I would have just wrote YUM for my review but 100 minimum it will be... Pulled pork sandwich... More

We frequent the Rib Crib for lunch and dinner - with family and friends - we always have great service and awesome food. The smoked chicken is outstanding!

We were reluctant to visit but were pleasantly surprised. The service was fast, food came fast, and was very good. The brisket and pulled pork serving sizes were very large. Kitchen was noisy where we were seated. We would certainly return if in the area again.

The Rib Crib is an excellent place for the family. The staff is very friendly and they get the food out to you fast. I usually get the sliced brisket, and it's been perfect every time.

Try the Rib Crib. Great service, didn't have to wait long for the food which was good for our 2 young granddaughters who were with us and the food is always awesome! The Kids' Menu was good, too, as they have a foot long corn dog on the menu which is granddaughter #1's favorite!

One of our friends told us that while we were in town, we needed to try the Rib Crib. So, we did. The food was good and the staff was friendly, but everything, and I mean EVERYTHING (including the coleslaw!) has MSG in it. Being MSG-intolerant, that made for a very long ride home that night.

While the service was good the food was a little bit over rated we ordered steaks and we're over done twice ( sent back the original ones they were almost to tough to cut) management was walking around like they were lost. Was expected a little break on the price due to the fact we couldn't eat the meat portion

Really enjoyed it. Food was great. Good service. Would definetly return again! We tried a sample of different meats and ribs enjoyed all of it. Good selection of sides to choose from. Like how you get to keep the cup!
