We get to eat here about once a year and its consistently good. The barbecue is pretty good, not the best we ever had but pretty good. The atmosphere is nothing special but not bad either, its a barbecue place. It is very clean and this means a lot. The staff is very personable and a pleasure to deal with. If you have the opportunity to eat here, by all means do, you won't be disappointed.

This was our third or fourth visit. The service was attentive and friendly. Ribs are wonderful. The smell of smoked ribs from the parking lot, convinced us of our decision to share the 1/2 rack. I had a Blue Moon Margurita. The glass was pretty. Not impressed @ $ 8.50. Next time I'll stick with a light beer.
We shared a slice of Key Lime Pie for dessert. This pie is delicious, creamy, and a must try!
One suggestion for management would be new menu covers, ASAP. The frayed fabric bindings are bad.
Overall impression of this restaurant is positive, we will definitely return! We are so happy to have good food options close to home.

We stopped by here for dinner on our way back from Santa Fe last Tuesday and had a great meal and outstanding margarita. We sat at the bar in the restaurant and chatted with one of the owners and the bartender. We are people people, and appreciate when the staff takes time to talk to us in a sincere way instead of the fake, overly cheerful approach many business owners partake in. They were packed and very busy, but made it a point to crack jokes with us and make sure we were well taken care of. They had many regulars sitting at the bar, and we felt we were treated like family even though we were strangers. The point of this review is that it's not always great food, atmosphere, etc. that makes a place great (ribs had all of this), but the welcoming attitude of the staff! We will be back!

With family in the area we happily get to eat at Ribs Hickory Smoked BBQ, every so often. The potato salad and cole slaw are really good and the beans are particularly good. Good atmosphere and you can eat outside if you want to. Sevice was good too!

My husband and I stopped by recently for dinner and were amazed by the food and service!! It was Friday night and the place was packed…however, we saddled up to the bar for an authentic margarita (they put lots of tequila!) and were seated on their beautiful deck within 10 minutes. There was a spirited volleyball game being played on their beach court…what a great way to occupy the kids while enjoying dinner! The chips and salsa were homemade and the best we'd ever had! I had the philly and was informed they get the Amarosa rolls flown in from philly for an authentic taste. My husband had the combo dinner and everything was tender, lean, and delicious! We finished the evening with a piece of homemade keylime pie to die for! Thank you Ribs, we will be back soon and often.
