Dead roaches and filthy floors. Server had most of her breasts showing and our dinner plates came out hugging her chest. My husband and I came here on dates 34 years ago and décor has not changed. Used to be one of the nicest places to eat in Rocky Mount. We're very sad that it hasn't been kept up. Bathroom... More

Two dead mice on a sticky pad on the floor in the restaurant.... no thank you! Not to mention the breast show from the waitress... um I'm not at Hooter's! The carpet is so dirty my shoes stuck to it... gross! The lighting is extremely dark. The place is extremely outdated, which is fine if it was clean.

This place is south of town, located in an old building originally built as a country-western night club. Post and beam construction makes you feel like you are in a barn, except there is a huge painting of one of the Alps (the Matterhorn, I think) painted on the back wall. The place is old, but clean. Get past the... More

Mr. Ribs has been independently owned for 40 plus years and still has the best ribs in town! Salad bar is awesome. Staff is great! Will continue to eat there as usual. Keep up the great work!!

The food was good, I'll give them that. The staff however needs to work on their wardrobe. I don't want to be in a restaurant where I'm worried if my waitresses "goodies" are about to be shown (front and back mind you). If I wanted a setting like that, we would've gone to Hooters.

So, I don't know. I'm not a big fan of beef ribs and I just spent 6 months working in Memphis so I had pretty high expectations. For $16.95 you get a choice of 2 of 3 ribs, beef, pork, or babybacks. Salad bar, a potato and bread is included. I didn't dislike my mean or experience but it isn't... More

Good food! Fall off the bone BB ribs. Pork Ribs were the same. The yeast rolls were very fresh. The ice tea was fresh and sweet. We will definitely go back. The best we have ever had! We live in a town that is known for their ribs and sauce.

I recently moved from Rocky Mount to the beautiful coastal city of Wilmington NC. There are tons of places to get ribs from here, being that it is a town full of food loving locals, but I have yet to find a rack that is good in the same way Mr. Ribs baby backs are. I could be slightly biased... More
