I fully intended on adding a photo but the food just did not even last that long. The St. Louis ribs were insane as was the pulled pork and chicken. Everything had such a delicious smoked flavor. We had never been and the waitress was very helpful in helping to pick out what meats we wanted and the sauces. We... More

Excellent food and service as always. Three of our party of 6 arrived late. The first three had already ordered and received their food. When told that we had a live theater event to attend, the server took the three new orders and in just a few short minutes their food arrived also. Rib City is the best!

Yummy! Service was awesome and the BBQ was the best I have ever had. We had a large group and they were able to seat us in about 10 minutes. My husband and I shared a meal for two, I think we could have feed 3+ off of it. The ribs were amazing, not to saucy, just right. You can... More

This restaurant was clean, cute and no wait. We went around 3:30 pm on a weekday. The food was good- ribs, shrimp, fries, coleslaw. Their coconut cream pie looks delicious too. I would go back anytime.

So it's commonplace to get delicious food, even at good value. But to get it quickly and have it served really hot, now that's something special. I got the chicken with a side of green beans and my wife got the ribs with a side of fries. She'd requested really well done fries, which we do everywhere we go. But... More

The people we go out to dinner love this place. We are snow birds and quite frankly we are not impressed with their ribs. They were dried out and not very good. My husband said they probably cook them and then reheat. There are too many good places in St. Pete then to go to Rib City.

This restaurant offers a good assortment of BBQ dishes and meals. The rack of ribs is good and prices are not high. They offer a good selection of sides for dinners.

Been here on many occasions & quite simply it's the best ! The Baby back ribs are to die for. The service is fast, courteous & efficient & I can't fault this place at all. We will be returning next year

The food was great and reasonable priced. I gave it four stars because the service was horrible. We sat for more than 10 minutes and waited on refills. The ribs were very good and a good portion. I had the smoked turkey dinner which was excellent as well.

Thank Stephanie C
