I kind of was hoping for a more smokey flavored Baby back ribs, but they reminded me of when my mom used to boil them and then covered them with barbecue sauce, although they did fall of the bone...just like mom. Not gonna go into the coleslaw, but I did find two items that I truly enjoyed their queso, and... More

Our meal was incredible. I thought the brisket was fantastic. I also had ribs that were so tender and yummy. We had grab a big package meal to take home where you got three and a half pounds of meat with 4 sides and it was good. I kinda wish the sides were a tad bigger. I could have enjoyed... More

IMHO, Rib Crib has slipped a notch in their BBQ quality. I started noticing it around 2 years ago. Is it the cooks or supervision? I have no idea. For the BBQ aficionados the Crib probably won't make the cut. It is a good place with a nice atmosphere where in can be served decent BBQ and the trimmings.

There is no shortage of barbecue options in Lubbock, but I had never tried Rib Crib before. I was in the mood for a nice rack of ribs so I thought I'd give it a try. It was ok, but nothing special. Note that they serve dry rub ribs and let you apply whatever sauce you want from the bottles... More

I had never been to this restaurant and we were in the neighborhood doing some shopping, so we decided to try it. It was ok. I did not like the rub on the ribs.....too salty. The sauce was so so nothing special either. Probably will not return Service was good.

Make sure to arrive early because this restaurant gets full pretty early. We ordered their ribs and brisket. In my opinion the ribs were brought from heaven whereas the brisket came from nothing-to-taste land. Certainly the difference between one and the one were appalling and I would highly advise anyone to get only the ribs. Side dishes though were very... More
