Great to fill up on after a day of hiking. Portions are pretty large and prices were reasonable. Maybe group of 4 all liked their meals. One had some order envy over our meat portions after she got a sandwich. I'd recommend the chicken or...More

We like to try BBQ whenever we travel and sadly are often disappointed. NOT here though! The Rib Co. is the place to eat in Twentynine Palms! It can get crowded as the inside eating area is fairly small, but there is seating outside too....More

Fries are the best part. Barbecue is good -- chef puts ribs on a smoky grill outside before serving. Beef ribs were just OK -- on the tough side and too smoky. Pulled pork sandwich was spot on. Salad was fresh and the home made...More
