“Best BBQ in Nashville”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

There are a million places to eat on Broadway and we just happened upon this one. We ate outside on the covered rooftop. There was live music (of course) which was great but the BBQ was simply outstanding. I had BBQ all throughout the south and this was by far the best. I had the pulled chicken sandwich and my daughter had the pulled pork. Super delicious!!!

“Great place to start”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Friends and I had several different apps, all of which were very tasty. Drinks were good. Apparently Nashville won't let you walk with a drink but Irish coffee IS coffee, right?

“Better than average city experience.”

Must see. Barbecue looked good but tables were full on the weekend. Great country cover band music, I donated a few dollars because they played for tips.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Rippy's, according to my hotel concierge, is a Nashville must. I am glad I listened. The food was excellent, especially the pulled pork. They offer two sauces on the table, both which are great. The service was good, but slow at times. The live music was an added bonus.

“So Loud!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Rippy's barbeque and service were outstanding and the open air environment and multiple bands make this a great place for someone a bit younger than me. It is a fun corner place to go with multiple levels and ages and average food do make it a worthwhile place to stop by. At the beginning of the Honky Tonk area you can't miss it.
