Every time I am in Springdale I end up here for lunch. Usually have the Carolina pulled pork sandwich with fries and a half and half. Nice menu and a friendly staff. Everyone got what they wanted for lunch from salad to baked potato to chicken strips to Bar-B-Q. Not fast food and not high end lunch, just right.

We stopped here while passing through on Hwy 412 for an early dinner. Service was very fast and food was good. As with most chain restaurants, some are great and some are awful. This is one of the better Rib Crib's I've visited.

It had been a while since I had been here. We sat in a booth and it was sticky and the back and side were full of crumbs and looked as tho it had not been cleaned for some time. The table edging was very dirty, looked like kids had rubbed their hands and faces all over it. We moved... More

My husband and I went there at 11 on a Saturday, so they had just opened their doors and there were only 5 tables occupied, so we didn't really get a feel for the atmosphere, but the staff seemed friendly. Food was pretty good, but his okra and my fries both could have spent more time in the oil cooking.

Their pulled pork is excellent and one of my favorite ones. I would recommend their smokestack BBQ sandwich. The fries used to have a lot of seasoning on them, but this time they barely had any. I would recommend to a friend.

Had had the opportunity to eat at a Rib Crib in Illinois. Had a good experience so decided to try again. Was not disappointed. Ribs were very tender and juicy. Dry rub on ribs with a variety of sauces to try. For a chain style Rib Joint the food is really good.

Haven't found a decent rib place along 412/Sunset yet. Maybe try some other food or just go with fast food, at least you know what you are getting.

Friendly staff, good service, good lunch menu. I had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw on the sandwich. Very good. Sweet Potato fries if I remember correct. Nice atmosphere and it was quick for lunch. In and out. It is a chain, but my first rib crib to try out. I will try again!

Went on a whim for dinner. We got wings, ribs, chicken, mac and cheese, fries and soda. The wings were the best part! The ribs were good, but I've had better. The sides were good. Overall we were impressed, it was better then we thought it would be and the prices are pretty good! Can't wait to go again!

I enjoy Rib Crib in my hometown. This restaurant has a very different menu. Not much chance for variety in my opinion. There are some local items that are not on hometown menu. Pricey, even for BBQ.$20 per person is pretty high. Much different atmosphere than I am used to. I think owners were shooting for an "upscale" sit down... More
