I have tried other items but always go back for the ribs. Great flavor and they fall off the bone! Coleslaw and baked beans to round off the ribs!

Visited Rib City after seeing the reviews on TA. No smokehouse, the sliced beef was Eye of Round or something else and sliced very thin, but not Brisket. The Sliced Turkey was like a sliced turkey you buy from the grocery store as the beef was. The chicken was the best of the 3, but again roasted chickens at the... More

Grabbed a rack of ribs for take out. The portion felt a bit small but when considering the price against other rib places I have gone to I still consider good value. Taste of the ribs sans sauce was very good. Fall off the bone as well. I selected their Carolina/mustard sauce for the ribs. I enjoyed the sauce also.... More

Always enjoy eating ribs here. The Baby backs are fork tender and delicious. Different kinds of sauce for them. I can't rate anything but the ribs because that is all I order here! All the sides are delicious as well.

We've eaten at the restaurant a number of times and have been very satisfied. Food is good and hot and service is attentive. We recently ordered take-out and had a few issues. The following day, we stopped in and spoke to the Manager. She was very apologetic and made everything right in our eyes. I was very impressed with their... More

Met with a friend on a Wednesday (50 cent beer night which explained the crowd) The rib lets were a favorite, portions good. I had the BBQ chicken, very tender. Was disappointed that I paid extra for sweet potato fries and they were clearly crinkle cut frozen and nothing special about them. No room for dessert. Just ok. Reasonably priced,... More

It had been over a year that I had gone back to this place, since my last experience was not a very good one. However, I got an e-mail stating that I could have a BOGO (buy 1 full rack, get 1 free), so I figured this is the time to try them again, perhaps they are back to their... More

The ribs and sides are always consistently good. The wait staff are consistently attentive. It is quite busy at meal times but always worth the wait. When we have guests they often ask to return to Rib City

Not a fan of BBQ, it's ok their turkey and shrimp is excellent. Oh and others enjoyed the ribs. Gina was our server. She was very helpful, attentive but not annoying.
