This is one of the best places to go for ribs. They are always fall off the bone and very tasty. Also, their barbeque shrimp is wonderful too!

This place is horrible. The menu is poorly written and the service is abhorrent. Don't waste your time or hard earned money as you will be very disappointed.

We go to Adams Rib's regularly. We love the Thursday night "Thanksgiving dinner" that we can get each week. The ribs are super and the meat falls off the bones. You must try the onion straws as they are the best! The service is great...More

I don't think you need reservations unless it's a big party.
