The food was very tasty and tender. We had a smoked beef brisket sandwich and a smoked chicken sandwich, and each were excellent. The potato salad was superb and the tossed salad was also excellent. Our waitperson, Eric, was very good and was sympathetic since...More

We found this place on the way to our hotel, and were glad we stopped. The friendly hostess greeted us and took us to our table. A waitress took our drink order, but then we waited a bit for our waiter. After ordering, the food...More

We ordered the half rack (6-7 bones) of baby back ribs. I think it was less than 5 minutes before our food was delivered (like BBQ food should be). The ribs were not sauced (good smoked meat shouldn't be) but there were 3 sauces on...More

We couldn't get into our favorite Clear Lake eatery and went searching for something new. The Rib Crib was our unusual pick. You see, we don't eat red meat very often preferring fish and poultry. We had far too much food not realizing the portion...More
