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.

Their pulled pork was very good. I actually wanted ribs, but the only ribs I saw on the menu were larger than a single serving. The staff was very friendly, brought my food very quickly, but was not very attentive about checking on drink refills, and I had to catch someone's attention to bring my ticket.

Good service, and the food was good too. The chicken tenders were a bit scrawny, but were okay. The beef brisket was smoked nicely, and moist. The fries were good, along with the other sides.

We eat alot of bbq, mainly at Sonny's in Florida. The baby back ribs here were excellent, they fell right off the bones. Most delicious.

The ribs are so tender and delicious! Always have the coleslaw & beans!! Even if you order some ribs to go they heat up perfectly in the oven! We ordered about ten racks to carry to a family reunion in Cury Beach NC and everyone loved them! Lunch is good too & very reasonable! You even get a free home... More

Met a friend from grad school here for lunch. Welcomed by the hostess and seated promptly. We got our drinks and soon got our onion loaf. This was plenty for 6 people and the spicy ranch was good. Our table got brisket, ribs, pulled pork and everyone was pleased. Sides included fries, slaw and beans--all good. Service was good and... More

I'm always skeptical about BBQ joints that are a little too ... organized. But I have to admit that Rib Country knows ribs. The other mains and sides are nothing to write home about, but the ribs are smoky, moist, and fall-off-the-bone tender. Everything you could want. My mom also loves their shrimp plate, and I trust her. So yeah,... More

I do not care much for BBQ however I went with my husband because he does and I was presently surprised!! I actually enjoyed it. The price is very good along with the portions they give you. It's not the wonder why no matter when you drive by the parking lot is full. Try it even if your like me... More
