If you are looking for comfort food, good humor and lots of laughs, Wes Rib House is your place. We were at the bar. The drinks were perfect, the bartender was funny, the food was quick and delicious. A must try in the area.

I don't know what has happened, but ever since the renovations, the quality of the food and service at Wes Rib House has gone downhill. I have gone twice in two months. Both times the draft beer was flat and the ribs were dry. Not...More
