Fantastic food & friendly service. We had an overnight stop in 29 Palms & were not expecting to find such tasty food. The spinach & artichoke dip served in a bread boule was really good and the rib sampler to share (1/4 rack of all 5 different meats & finishes) was even better. Wish we lived closer to here!!

After a trip to see the sunset we rolled up at The Rib Co. with no expectations. It looks very low key from the outside but the ribs were amazing and the service fantastic. Well worth a visit.

Had the rib sampler. 4 different flavours of ribs that really hit the spot! Coleslaw was good to. Steamed broccoli was nice. The waitress was amazing at her job.

We ordered the california burgers, me cooked rare and my wife medium. They were cooked to perfection, the ingredients fresh and incredibly tasty. The first bite was enough to realize this was one solid burger, amongst the best I've ever eaten, and I lived 5 years in Texas. The beers on draught are also very good, and the place unassuming...

We did not expect much after we left Joshua Tree Park at 29 Palms in the evening. This place looks a bit rustic but they have great ribs. They are a bit costly though. We ate 2 full slabs with 3 adults and one kid and still had to get a box.

We had dinner there after a day at Joshua Tree National Park. The ribs were fantastic and the service very good. Our kids also loved the place. We definitely recommend this place!

A little pricey and extremely casual. But the food was great. We had the half BBQ chicken, brisket, pulled pork, and the Rib Co Burger.
