Went there for the kids (their favorite place). Table of 7 next to us were complaining about 1hr20min wait for food. We asked being a (table of 8) how long before our order would arrive and were told the rush was over and they are back to normal. It was true, food arrived, everybody enjoyed and was pleased, bill was... More

Enjoyed our lunch. Great service, atmosphere and prices. Many delicious sauces to choose and the baked beans were heavenly.

We are regulars here and the last few times we've eaten here, they were out of dark meat chicken. Kinda perplexing as this is a BBQ restaurant and shouldn't be running out of food at normal dinner hour. Had to order ribs, which were cold, so she took them back into the kitchen and 10 minutes later, came back out... More

In town for a college soccer game and never ate at a Rib Country. Really had never heard of it before. I was hoping to get some good pulled pork and it did not disappoint. I had the pulled pork platter with coleslaw, garlic bread and fries. My wife had the smoked turkey with same sides. I like sweet BBQ... More

We were not greeted or acknowledged when we entered. Waited because we were hungry until we were finally seated. Our server was friendly (thanks goodness) Food was not great & not bad--just average for a BBQ place. Prices were reasonable.

We have been eating at "The Rib" for years, and the food is always dependably good. The baked beans are at or close to the top of my list as the best I've ever had. There have been no surprises in consistency or quality of the food served. The menu offers a pretty good variety too. The latest change in... More

We eat here frequently, and even though we don't eat pork, we love their barbecue brisket, as well as their smoked turkey salad. Their coleslaw is very good, and BBQ beans usually have big chunks of brisket, particularly the burnt ends which are so yummy, added to them for a really special flavor.

Rib Country is, as much as I hate to say it, is just an average rib joint. The food is what you would expect and the prices are reasonable. Guess I should have known since there was only one other car in the parking lot at 12:00 noon. Our server was very polite and the place was clean. Other than... More

Rib Country has been a great place for lunch or dinner, in our experience. The smoked turkey sandwich is awesome. The salads are also tasty. Love the beef brisket. Overall, it has a nice family atmosphere.

We were in the mood for Barbecue and chose Rib Country since we have eaten at Rib Country in other locations. We were not disappointed.
