I drove 25 miles to try this restaurant because I heard it was good. More than worth the trip. The ribs were superb. So tender moist and flavorful! I used a combination of sweet and hot sauces. The sides I had, slaw and bbq beans,...More

This is the best place for ribs. They are fork tender and very tasty. It is the only place I will actually eat ribs. There is a variety of BBQ sauces to choose from if extra sauce is needed. The prices are very reasonable also.

Let's start with the good - the service was eIxcellent. My waiter was very attentive, but didn't hover. Food came out of the kitchen quickly, and piping hot. Unfortunately, that's where my meal took a turn. The food wasn't *bad* but it wasn't *good* either....More

I've been to Rib City several times now and the ribs are always great. The onion rings are also really good, crispy and browned exactly right. The baked beans are also well prepared and flavorful as well as the cole slaw. It's like being in...More

Always good and decent. Dont expect gourmet. A step up of most BBQ places, but still very basic decore and food.

Went here for the first time and we have driven by it for three years! Wasn’t sure if it was related to the chains in Florida or not. It was great! Food was hot, quick, great flavors and our waitress was super nice! They even...More

I have to say the food was average and lacked seasoning. The green beans came from a can and over cooked. The potatoe salad could have used more mustard than mayo. The meat needed something, without the sauce it was bland and tasteless. Overall it...More
