While not epic, the ribs are very good. Enjoyed the brisket lunch plate. Portions were good size for the price. Service is good. We stopped for a quick lunch with the grandkids who enjoyed coloring and drawing on the paper bag place mats.

The atmosphere was great. The smoked turkey I had was wonderful. I will definitely go back and I will get the turkey again.

This is a chain BBQ place. Everything that we ordered was good. I had the ribs. We had a large party so there was a good variety on the table and nobody complained. It wasn't the best BBQ I've ever had but i would go back.

We no longer have family there, but while staying in Maggie Valley, NC we remembered how great the food was at Rib Country. We drove about an hour and a half - and the food was just as good as...

I went to this restaurant for several years with trying their baby back ribs because I was a BBQ snob. I love Jim's Smokin' Q in Blairsville, GA, and we would scour SE Tenn. , SW NC and northern GA for BBQ. Adel, GA has a great place too, but I have to say the this place has some of... More

I heard great things about this restaurant from different people. So I drove the family an hour and a half to try this place from the location we were staying in Tennessee.

My family visits this place every time we are in Murphy. (And we come often) Best ribs I ever ate ,consistently. Onion loaf puts outback's bloomin onion to shame. If u ever have a problem wait staff is right on it. Prices are reasonable. You will leave happy.
