Even tho I haven't seem many vehicles hardly ever there, thought we'd give it a try, The food was nothing great, place is fairly run down. Now, we know why no many vehicles around. They should close and completely update the place.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why this place keeps getting voted "best of" every year. The meat is consistently dry and there are so many other really good choices: Bones, Nooga-Q, Choo-Choo and even Sugars. I recommend any of these over Rib&Loin.

Authentic flavor and a lot of food. We get the pork plate which is outstanding. Sides are good and always served hot.

Just about all Southerners love good BBQ. Rib and Loin is the place for us. We're promptly seated by the Hostess with a smile and our order taken immediately. All their hot food is prepared when ordered. If you love pecan pie, they have "pecan cobbler" that tops off a great meal. All the waitstaff are friendly and makes sure... More

I would not give them a one circle if there was something lower. We went thru the drive thru and picked up an order of 4 items, over $30. They verified the order 3 times: when I ordered, when I paid for it, and when they gave me the bag. When we got home they gave me a pint of... More

Over cooked and full of fat instead of beef. I would not recommend this facility for any event honestly. The worse meal I ever ate there.

The BBQ is very good & the food plentiful. We were there on a Sunday after church & it was busy however the service was still very good. They also provide take out orders as well as catering.
