“yummmmmy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

the fried pickles we wonderful, onion rings great. we sampled the chili and it was really good. had the beef brisket with okra and mac and cheese. very good. a friend had th chcken salad and it was large enough for 4 people as a side. they have outside seating so we were able to bring our dog to the patio. the waitress was very friendly. would go back.

“Yaaaawwwwn!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2008

First, full disclosure...I'm a vegan and only go to the Rib Ranch because the leader of my political group won't meet anywhere else. I'm giving it about an extra star and a half because I don't eat what they are presumably best at. Service is friendly, but can be a bit slow and disorganized. The meat eaters seem to like the barbecue well enough, but the sides are minimal and seriously uninspired. The few things prepared without lard, cheese, or bacon are boiled to death. I'm sure they'd call it "good old southern cooking," but that's an insult to the many excellent and imaginative cooks we have down here.

It is close to the highway and if your group doesn't mind its food in a trough, the family-style service will work well for you. But frankly there's nothing here you can't get at a thousand other places.

“outstanding ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2005

we came for the ribs and stayed for the pulled pork. tender, moist and served with a magnificent sauce which highlighted an already pleasant experience. the decor is entertaining and easy to feel at home in. the wait staff punctial and affiable. this is a fun place to eat. we hope to go back again soon
