“Yummmy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This place reminds me of a repurposed Logan's Roadhouse (if anyone gets the restaurant reference). The place smelled great (think smoky and delicious) and the ribs were decent. Several members of my party ate at this restaurant more than once during our three week stay. You won't be disappointed.

“Excellent food - even better service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Stopped here after driving all day and was very pleased. Good atmosphere, heavenly aroma, excellent food and service. Everything we ordered was delicious and prepared correctly. The quantity of food is generous and filling. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive without driving us nuts. Will definitely stop there again.

“Not Many Good Restaurants in This Part of Okla., But This is One!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We were driving from Chicago to Austin, Texas and stopped at their location in McAlester. Realize there aren't many good restaurants in this stretch of Hwy 69/75, so if you have the chance to stop at the Rib Crib it will be well worth your while. It was very crowded on a Saturday afternoon. The aroma of smoked meat filled the restaurant. We had a young lady (Lauren) wait on us and she was outstanding, polite and helpful. They have a large selection on their menu of brisket, chicken, ribs, sausage and many side dishes to choose from. I have to tell you -- the brisket was outstanding! Nice smoke ring, good smokey flavor and very tender. My wife had the loaded baked potato which included brisket. The smoked sausage was just okay. The atmosphere is fun and it's obvious they have a winning restaurant here in McAlester.

“My son's favorite place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is my sons favorite place to eat at. The service was good and so was the food, but they could offer more of a variety.
