Went for lunch. My wife and I both had B B Que pork. Wife had onion rings and I had green beans and cold slaw. Food was very good. Service was good as well. Wife complained the women's rest room wasn't in very good shape. Seamed clean but everything was old and something's were rusted.

This place seems to be loved by most. I find it puzzling. I have eaten there 3 times. Ribs are fine....Sides are adequate...BBQ pork is disappointing. Why would you take perfectly good pork and chop it so fine it won't stay on the bun. And don't ask for pulled pork, it is not available. Also, if you like corn bread... More

The ribs were awesome. The pulled pork was really good too. The beef was kind of dry but had a good taste. If I am back in the area I will get the whole rack of ribs. They were done perfectly for my liking. The server was great too.

The serving sizes were adequate but the taste was only average. We had the wings, the Brunswick stew and a salad with pulled pork. Food was heavy on BBQ sauce which probably did not help. Ranch and blue cheese dressings were typical and nothing special. Waiter was friendly and prompt. Seating was at tables or booths. Paper napkins, plastic table... More

My family and I ate here for dinner tonight. The food prices are pretty decent, but we paid almost $9 for 3 adult drinks and 1 child drink. I'll get water next time! Service was great and we received our food in a timely matter! Bbq potatoes are excellent! Corn on the cob is great, wings are good, onion rings... More

The Rib & Loin on Brainerd Road is always a good choice for BBQ. You get a lot of food for your money and the service is always quick and friendly. They are great for catered events too, like church or work luncheons. They make sure there is plenty of food.
