Heard a lot about the ribs, so decided to give it a try. Waitress pleasant enough. Ribs were good as was the BBQ chicken. However it was so cold in there that we all had to eat with our coats on....our winter coats!! Like to enjoy my dinner without coats, thank you very much!!

Difficult just calling in a carryout order. Answer within 5 rings only to be put on hold for 6 minutes. Had to wait for the order upon pick up. BTW, you basically wait in the doorway of the restaurant. The ribs were just ok, better options around town. More expensive than other options. Not returning for some time!

As always, my wife wrote this for her friends on Facebook. Sometimes we have to go back to a place that's tried and true, one we seem to take for granted will always be there so we unintentionally put it on the "back burner." So today, after way too many years, we visited Ziffle's Rib Bar in the Georgetown Square... More

The ribs here are the MEATIEST I have ever had and cooked perfectly - not falling off the bone, but not chewy. You have your choice of mild, medium or hot sauce and we liked the mild. The fries were good. The slaw was tasty, but way too wet. The service was quick and attentive. Bar and family room seating... More

We tried out their rib basket... extremely tasty ribs, excellent fries, and so-so garlic bread. They give you a choice of mild, medium, hot sauce... I enjoyed the medium. FYI, there are no extra sauces on the table, like in many BBQ places. The place is a bit devoid of character, so go for the food. We did find that,... More

Ziffle'so is good fun and eats, especially the ribs. They have great lunch specials at a good price. The service is good and friendly. It is worth your time to try them.

Their menu has slot of different things on there. We generally go for the pork. I wish they just had a pulled pork dinner or maybe a kids pork meal. The food is good, service is okay, and price is good. Good local BBQ place.

Some friends of our said that it was not bad so we tried it out. The place was very cramped, services were very slow! Ribs were terrible, like they got the sauce out of a can! If you live for BBQ like I do skip this place and go to Shigs and pit!

Four of us stopped for dinner one evening. The ribs were mostly fat and gristle, a total waste of money. One person ordered the pulled pork and that was very fatty. The fries were burnt.

I have always gone to Shigs in Pit when it came to getting ribs in Ft Wayne until recently when my wife and I decided to give Ziffles a try. The atmosphere was very laid back and the workers were very friendly. Between the two of us we had the loaded fries, jalapeno poppers and 1/2 slab of ribs and... More
