Probably the best unknown BBQ joint in all of S Florida. The sloppy joe is amazing!!! Highly recommend RR Ribs!

I was so looking forward to having a rib dinner. Friends and Check Please! gave the restaurant good reviews. The ribs were not fresh. It seemed as though they were cooked several days earlier. They chef(?) attempted to warm them up. They were luke warm at best and slathered with bbq sauce. The veggies were overcooked to the point they disintergated when I tried to pick them up with my fork. The fries were just ok. On the upside, the service was good. Our server, Oscar, was nice.

Very small venue, about 200 people. Quality of the food is seriously second to none. Great burgers, wings and the usual side. BUT...The ribs are AMAZING! If you want quiet, go for lunch. If you like music - the night is yours. The only reason I didn't rate 5 is that it is a restaurant and does not have a bar. Try it - you will NOT be disappointed.

We went with a large group (8) on a Saturday night. It was packed but they honored our reservation within about 10 minutes, not bad for Coral Springs. Our group had a variety of food. Most people ordered some barbecue, ribs or pulled (pork, beef or chicken) sandwiches. If you are not a barbecue aficionado, then you would probably be satisfied with the BBQ. If you are a BBQ expert, you will not enjoy it. I don't believe anything cooked there is true slow smoked bbq. Ribs are NOT supposed to fall off the bone, whether spare or baby back. But some people enjoy that. The pulled meats are really baked or braised, I'm sure.

However, we did also sample several of their other menu items: fried catfish, burgers, and wings were all really good. The sides are also good, especially enjoyed the sweet potato waffle fries and the coleslaw. Many reviewers seem to disparage the coleslaw, but I liked it. It is the lightly sweet, no mayo kind of coleslaw. Maybe they are missing the mayonnaise?

The onion ring stack are a gimmick. They are huge. Not just made from colossal onions, but cut super extra thick, like half the height of the onion thick (2-3" in height). The onions are good. The coating is good and fried crunchy. But the rings themselves are so huge that it defeats the purpose. You have to cut them with a knife and fork. If they made them 1/2-1" in height they would be excellent.

The service staff tries really hard. You have to flag them down to get their attention for refills, but it was really busy and they were really nice. My husband actually sent back his BBQ combo (spare ribs and pulled pork) because he hated it so much (bland, rubbery, not smoked), but they were very professional and replaced it with a burger served on their garlic toast which he said was excellent. I didn't even get a bite!

If you are an Iron Metal fan, there's memorabilia covering every inch of wall space. I saw several people walking around taking snapshots of their favorites. Some people make a pilgrimage to this place to see all the memorabilia or to talk to Nicko (we did not see him). It's 5 minutes from my house. So, we'd go back for the burgers and wings and a $17 bucket of beer on a weeknight when it's not so crowded.
