Stopped by due to the catchy "Rib City". The ribs were ok, had the full rack of baby backs. The garlic toast was very good, and had the potato salad and baked beans. Very palatable, but not the best I ever had.

We go there for $6 smoked pork burritos and 25 cent Bud Lights. All other beers are a buck. Smoked turkey sandwich, spicy chicken, and buffalo chicken salad are good. Try the fried okra.

You would think that a restaurant named Rib City would have had better ribs. Mine were dry and just smeared with some store bought BBQ sauce. The French fries were just average as well.

I tried out the "Rib & Rib" which is half a rack of St Louis and half a rack of Baby back ribs - with a potato and a salad. The St Louis ribs were good, the baby backs a bit overcooked. It was near...More

Very good food served hot and the service is excellent. We have been here three times so far and it is always consistent. The friendly local atmosphere is a plus. Great burgers and other items on the menu besides their superb ribs. Plenty of parking.
