This place is excellent. We happened upon it while traveling to Asheville NC. The food was above and beyond my expectations. I ordered the Barbque sandwich (Pork) with hand battered, made in house, Onion Rings. My husband had the Barbque Pork Plate. So good and the staff are extremely nice.

I wish the Rib Sauce wasn't so Sweet, but that's the way they come. Well, the Sweet Tea is certainly the BEST around!

This is the best barbecue we have found in the south. We really enjoyed the food and good service. I had the ribs and they were phenomenal.

Went to Rib Country with the family, had baby backs and Turkey plates, both were awesome. Had pork rinds and onion loaf as appetizers, both awesome. Onion loaf was crispy through, not soggy in the middle like others. Highly recommend.

I took my grandson's for dinner and all of us really enjoyed our dinner. I had the baby back ribs which were excellent, My teenage grandson hd the pulled pork and not only did it fill hime up but he could not decide on the hot bbq sauce or the sweet. Both were great. Best of all, the baked beans.....WOW

My family and I have been eating here for years, whenever we come to Murphy. Food is always great. The onion loaf is a must get, and the ribs fall off the bone. Worth a visit..or two.

This was the second time my husband and I have eaten at Rib Country. Once again we were not disappointed. This is a no frills restaurant and that's what I love about it. I love that the placemats are paper bags and the plates are pie tins! We had their brisket and ribs and both were good. I have had... More

We're from the UK and in Murphy for a few days R&R. Went to Rib Country for some BBQ and, boy, we were not disappointed. The level of smoke in the meat is perfect and the BBQ sauce has a great balance of a little spice and a little sweet. The restaurant is spotlessly clean and our waitress couldn't have... More

We haven't found a great bbq place in GA or NC and this place is no exception. Although the service was super friendly and the portions are a good size they are missing one thing. Really great bbq. No sweet sauces and no real flavor to the meat.
