I wasn't impressed on my first couple of visits here. It's about a 20 minute drive from where I live so I didn't figure on going back. However, I did stop by when I was in town to give it one more try and they were very busy so, I ordered some take out instead. I took home 2 lbs.... More

This is our go to place. We stop by once a month. They have the best Pork BBQ and Chicken out of this world. (I have not tried anything else on the menu). The service and food is the best there is.

I stopped with friends from PA after the casino. I got the "Burnt Ends" Special which was a sandwich with cole slaw and it was so good it needed no sauce. It was smoked twice, was very dark in color and absolutely delicious. My friends had the feast for two and raved about it. This is REAL barbeque!!!

We asked a casino employee where to get good ribs and we were sent here. The food is incredible, many sides to choose from. Save room for the desserts. We had fried apple pie and fried cherry pie. Julie took awesome care of us. We week be back again when we are back in town.

Good BBQ, had the Pork Plate with Brunswick Stew and Slaw. All were very tasty. Husband had the Smoked Brisket,Beans and homemade Onion Rings which were delicious. Definitely pay extra for Onion Rings as a side! Did not have desert but selection looked good. Easy to find and plenty of parking.

I had the beef brisket plate and my wife had the pork plate and thought both were great. Neat clean place and the service was fast and courteous. Looking forward to visiting Murphy again and next time will try the ribs.

I've eaten at rib country many times and at several locations and the food has always been great. The portions are large and the side's are good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone and plan to return again soon.
