“Top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Food was great, serves are massive and good value for the area. Try the onion rings and the chips. Bring your appetite if your going to go after the big rib deals as they take some serious eating

“Good food at a good price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

We went to the Rib Shack mid week, and it was fairly full which is always a good sign. The service was good as were the meals (but not fantastic)

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Noisy, friendly, and really good food. Atmosphere is casual and welcoming. Usually crowded so get there early.

“over priced!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

we ordered a meal that cost $30 and it wasnt that great at all. i could have easily made better at home! chips and a tough piece of steak. not very happy at all! i would have much rather gone to the pizza place down the road...which is actually what we done 2 hrs after because we wernt full
