“Good but nothing spectacular”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Rib Hut has been around for as long as I can remember. They have a good solid menu. The food is good but not great. Which is a shame, as it's pretty hard to find good BBQ in El Paso.

The wait staff has never been good in all my years of eating there. It's almost like they go out of their way to hire the worst employees they can find.

But when you're craving beef ribs, where else are you going to go? They're hard enough to find, even at most BBQ joints.

“Great food good prices.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Such a unique El Paso staple. It's a hole in the wall for sure. Go here about 1 or 2 times a month with coworkers and our meals are always great! Definitely recommend!

“BBQ”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great BBQ. They have the best sausage in town. Sometime I stop by and pickup a pound to go and have it for lunch for a few days. There Beef Ribs are huge and my husband's and dog Chloe's favorite.

“Lots of food”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had the VIP special- a giant burrito and fries. I had the sweet potato fries, and my wife had regular fries. Both were excellent.
Friendly staff, good portions.
The restaurant is on the small side, and older A-frame, with college decor. Tables and chairs or picnic-style tables are available.

“Worth a try”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I am not used to beef ribs so maybe I should not comment, I found them rather tough vs the fall off the bone pork I am used to. The sauce was tasty, the sides were all really good, the mac-n-cheese was REALLY good, the coleslaw had pineapple in it but was not overly sweet like it can be at some places. Service was VERY attentive. The brisket sandwich was tender and seasoned perfectly. We will go back forsure.
