In the last two weeks, a group of us have enjoyed some great bar b que at Adam's Rib. Several friends have enjoyed several visits. We love it! In fact, on the second visit Which was yesterday, both households wound up taking "to go " orders from the wonderful menu. Adam himself came and introduced himself to us and waited... More

Big tasty breakfasts & serious ribs! One of our favorites in the neighborhood. Great value, very good customer service and tasty BBQ. Recommend the rib platter if you want to get your meat coma on. Great assortment of proper Southern sides and cornbread will do you in if the mounds of meat on your plate do not. Good casual sports... More

Stopped here for breakfast food was great. Only issues were the plastic forks, knives and styrofoam cups. Noice level was a little high. Prices were reasonable biscuit and gravy $7.00, French toast combo $8.00, meat lovers omelette $9.00.

Seriously good BBQ. They opened their new location with more seating. Thank goodness. Their lunch specials are a great deal and great for your belly. They have a variety of sauces to choose from and their sandwiches are amazing. Their sides are so good. Literally have not had a bad thing from here.

The food is fairly good, but, the service, especially last night was great. A big thank you to Mark for being so attentive. We had 2 young kids in our party and he is great with kids. Our group commented on how nice he was to not just our kids, but, the other kids in the place. He gets down... More

They have the biggest and meatiest ribs you can eat. Their food is fabulous and everything on the menu is great. Love their appetizers, especially the "broccoli bites", great way to eat your veggies. The chicken literally falls off the bone and has the best flavor, even without any kind of sauce on it. If you want really good BBQ,... More

I ate here with my son on their first night open in the new location. We had been to the old location many times. It was so nice. The food here is fabulous. I won't go to the other major BBQ place in town anymore. This is really, really good BBQ.

We were visiting Gainesville for the first time and found Adam's on Tripadvisor. We were very happy with our meals. I really liked the buttery garlic toast. The corn miming gets were a great starter. The BBQ pork was flavorful and tender. The baked beans were good as was the potato salad. You get what you pay for. Good BBQ... More

Very flavorless ribs very watery the coleslaw had a very strange taste to it, and I got the baked beans and all it tasted like was a cinnamon raisin cookie I asked the waitress if they put cinnamon in their beans and she said yes very odd seasoning to put in baked beans
