“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Didn't expect to be so pleasantly surprised! Quite simple decor and maybe a bit in need of some remodeling. Once you walk in and find a seat none of that matters! Friendly service and great food do..... Had the ribs and they were the best I have had! The grilled Jalapenos were also a treat. Menu is quite diverse, including seafood and steaks also. Can't wait to come back........

“Do not arrive hungry.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

It took over an hour to get mediocre food. But, it's not like you have a lot of choices.

“Limited ambience, but good food & service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Twentynine Palms is a working class, military town and most of the restaurants we visited here seemed to reflect that – the simple interiors are clean but sparsely decorated at best. The emphasis is more on food and service, and the Rib Co. certainly fits the mold. Neither the exterior nor the interior is all that attractive (although I thought the smell emanating from the smoker was mighty pretty). The staff was very friendly, and the food was quite tasty. My wife’s St, Louis-style ribs and my beef short ribs were both tender and the portions were generous. We were both quite full when we left and felt that we definitely got our money’s worth. We both feel pretty good about recommending the Rib Co. to any non-vegans out there!

“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We travelled much of California and eat in some very swankly places, but this was one of the best little finds.

It was a cold wet night and we just needed some good food after a long day in the car.

Service was really nice and friendly. Food was just what we needed.

Loved the simple feel of the place as its exactly what we wanted to find.

“Fannnnntastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

This place was recommended by some Marines at the base nearby. When we pulled up we kind of looked at each other, not so great from the outside. Don't be fooled! In we went and what a great choice that ended up being! The place was packed inside, GREAT service and GREAT food! Probably the best dinner we had in a week that included the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Las Vegas.
