I didn't realize that Rib Country offered breakfast until we saw a sign when driving up to the mountains one day. We decided to try it. I have to say the service was great and an excellent breakfast for the price.

Service was good. Food was average, dinner’s are small portions and menu prices are to high. Ask for food that is hot. French frys came out cold.

We had the prime rib & rack of ribs on a Friday night. The food was very good & served promptly. Our server was polite, but not very friendly. She wasn't unkind, just not engaging. Make sure you save room for the fried apple pie...More
