Service was very fast and friendly. The ribs were excellent. As were the sides; coleslaw, bbq beans. Haven't had bbq this good in a long time, glad we stopped by. Nice atmosphere too, can even sit outside.

The ribs were awesome. The pulled pork was really good too. The beef was kind of dry but had a good taste. If I am back in the area I will get the whole rack of ribs. They were done perfectly for my liking. The server was great too.

The serving sizes were adequate but the taste was only average. We had the wings, the Brunswick stew and a salad with pulled pork. Food was heavy on BBQ sauce which probably did not help. Ranch and blue cheese dressings were typical and nothing special. Waiter was friendly and prompt. Seating was at tables or booths. Paper napkins, plastic table... More

My family and I ate here for dinner tonight. The food prices are pretty decent, but we paid almost $9 for 3 adult drinks and 1 child drink. I'll get water next time! Service was great and we received our food in a timely matter! Bbq potatoes are excellent! Corn on the cob is great, wings are good, onion rings... More

The Rib & Loin on Brainerd Road is always a good choice for BBQ. You get a lot of food for your money and the service is always quick and friendly. They are great for catered events too, like church or work luncheons. They make sure there is plenty of food.

Well we read the reviews and they were good so we went for it. Should have followed my gut, 4 pm on a Monday there was only 1 customer in the entire gigantic restaraunt, my gut said leave. But we were there so we went ahead and ordered. I had the combo plate, pulled pork chicken and beef with Mac... More

Excellent family spot for good barbecue. They serve a pulled version of pork, chicken, and beef. All have great flavor!! The baked pork potato is one of my favorites and got to have the onion rings. Great for families or groups!

Thank I2CuTrip
