We've eaten at the restaurant a number of times and have been very satisfied. Food is good and hot and service is attentive. We recently ordered take-out and had a few issues. The following day, we stopped in and spoke to the Manager. She was very apologetic and made everything right in our eyes. I was very impressed with their... More

Met with a friend on a Wednesday (50 cent beer night which explained the crowd) The rib lets were a favorite, portions good. I had the BBQ chicken, very tender. Was disappointed that I paid extra for sweet potato fries and they were clearly crinkle cut frozen and nothing special about them. No room for dessert. Just ok. Reasonably priced,... More

It had been over a year that I had gone back to this place, since my last experience was not a very good one. However, I got an e-mail stating that I could have a BOGO (buy 1 full rack, get 1 free), so I figured this is the time to try them again, perhaps they are back to their... More

The ribs and sides are always consistently good. The wait staff are consistently attentive. It is quite busy at meal times but always worth the wait. When we have guests they often ask to return to Rib City

Not a fan of BBQ, it's ok their turkey and shrimp is excellent. Oh and others enjoyed the ribs. Gina was our server. She was very helpful, attentive but not annoying.

Stopped for lunch because we were walking by at the strip mall and pleasantly surprised by the food and prices. Server was helpful, brought extra fries when some fell of the plate. Very nice BBQ/smoke flavor.

I used to be a "secret shopper" here. Got paid to eat. Took forever to submit reports though. Big thing they wanted ratings on was timing. How long until seated - drinks served - food comes, etc. They are well drilled here and pacing is fast. Best baked beans anywhere. Ribs are truly fall off the bone. Fries always came... More

Dreams of barbecue were filling my head, so I headed over to Rib City for a quick bite. The food was fresh and a bit spicy. It was just what I wanted.

Four of us decided to go to Rib City for their signature dish, and we were not disappointed. The combination platter was a big hit (2 or 3 different smoked meats) for 3 of us. The place was full at dinner time and we had a 20 minute wait. It was worth it.

Delicious ribs, delicious pulled pork sandwiches. Beer was great-nice and cold. Baked beans were great, very tasty. We all enjoyed our meals, wish we lived closer, we would go more often!
