Very polite and made sure our beers were always full. If your in town for work or play you really need to try this spot. A friend of mine had a... More

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.

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.

If you are looking for good ribs then this is the place to be, service and food or both great. The portions are large so you won't go away hungry.

This place is not much to look at from the outside or even the inside for that matter. But in a town full of Mexican and fast food restaurants, it certainly stands out. The steak at this joint was absolutely outstanding. Very tender, well seasoned, flavorful and cooked to perfection. Best of all it was about half the price of... More
