We were at Rib City with a group of friends. It was a Sunday so Baby Back Ribs were the special. Everyone love the choices for the sides. We had three cheese potatoes before dinner it was great. Love the differ sauces.

This place packs all the flavor into good BBQ and ribs. It stands up there with that great west Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas BBQ.
