Despite Ribs being in the name, I can easily recommend the steaks. Perfectly cooked, ample portions, unbeatable flavor.

The best I have ever had. Get the full rack and a loaded potato. Plenty left over to take home for tomorrow. Will miss this place when we relocate to South Texas.

Food is awesome. You get plenty of food and it has an awesome flavor. I had brisket plate with 6 slices of brisket and husband had catfish atchafalya with shrimp etouffe. They also have 99cent margaritas. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

A mainstay in Baton Rouge. They don't try to be pretentious, they just want to serve good barbecue and provide a better wait staff than most restaurants in the city. The baby back ribs are a must try and the variety of accompanying sides are good. It can get crowded for dinner so plan accordingly, or try it for a... More

We got in from a long day on the road. TJ Ribs was close by so we walked and sat right down. We ordered the #2 and #4 combinations. This gave a good serving of ribs, brisket, sausage, and chicken. We had Cajun Potato Salad, cole slaw, and of course red beans and rice. It was excellent. It was just... More

We arrived for lunch about 12:45 and had to wait several minutes to be seated, even though there were lots of empty tables. We each ordered a full rack of baby back ribs. I had a Caesar salad with mine. Hubby had baked potato. And it was a HUGE potato cooked till done. Their ribs are always delicious. Can't go... More
