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.

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 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
