Had dinner here tonight and had ribs and chicken. Both were very good in taste but we were highly disappointed that they charged an extra $1.00 to share our meals. That is extremely tacky as we were spending enough on our meals and since we are seniors we don’t consume a lot of food at one time therefore we share our meals. We did not want leftovers so did not order two meals and one of the couples were staying in a motel so extra food would have been wasted. You really should revisit your share charge it is offensive. We had a nice meal and good service except for that.

If you are famished, this isn’t the typical bbq restaurant that you leave full. Just keep this in mind when ordering.

Out of beef brisket at 12:30 on a Tuesday which was disappointing. Sliced beef lunch platter was good amount of food. Sliced beef was fatty and not very flavorful however bbq sauces made up for that. Would recommend the spicy one that isn’t sitting on the tables. Sliced tomato looked to be a low quality tomato. Green beans were good.

Known for its Ribs but far better ones available in the area, try Michelbobs. They do not take reservations. I order a full rack of ribs and they were tender but not fall off the bone and very dry but still tasty. You get two sides, I ordered the fries (very poor frozen quality) and corn cobette which was quite tasty and in a small dish with butter. The woman across from me ordered a salad and didn’t finish it, how can any restaurant screw up a salad. She only ate half a rack of her ribs and didn't even want to take the rest home. The restaurant shows poor management. Tables were not very clean, mine had wax stains on it. As we were a group of over 20 people, we finally convinced them to take our reservation. But when we did get there at 3:45, they had people seated in our area even though it was not busy, so we had to wait 20 minutes. Again, poor management and lack of organization skills. To top it off or bills were wrong, but we didn’t bother as the amount was small but again shows poor management. My wife had the special which was advertised on the blackboard for $8.89 and we were charged $9.49, the gentlemen next to me ordered the coconut cream pie which looked delicious and a bargain at the advertised price of $3.05 but he was charged $4.49, still a bargain but get your menus prices right. Restaurants should not leave customers with a bad taste in their mouth. For sides get the baked potato and corn. Green Beans are from a can UGH!! I imagine the baked beans are also.

We had been traveling all day and we needed a comfort food dinner. Rib City hit the spot.
The ribs were good. The cheese fries and mac and cheese were very tasty.
