When comparing rib joints I try to be fair with the food and atmosphere.
Food, The ribs and pulled pork are excellent. The sauce is very flavorful but you won't be finding a variety of sauces as many rib restaurants offer. I would call this a rib shack. You order and pay at the counter. Up side..no waitress to tip.
Atmosphere... Ok, I'm spoiled. I LOVE Famous Dave's restaurants. I love the food and the BLUES being piped throughout. Ribs and blues is where I'm at so if that is also your vibe on rib restaurants better think twice about Bad To The Bone.
That being said, if it's close to your home and you want to order out or grab a quick platter then this will definately be pleasing to your taste buds.
