You would think that a restaurant named Rib City would have had better ribs. Mine were dry and just smeared with some store bought BBQ sauce. The French fries were just average as well.

I tried out the "Rib & Rib" which is half a rack of St Louis and half a rack of Baby back ribs - with a potato and a salad. The St Louis ribs were good, the baby backs a bit overcooked. It was near the end of the day so... I guess that has something to do with it.... More

Very good food served hot and the service is excellent. We have been here three times so far and it is always consistent. The friendly local atmosphere is a plus. Great burgers and other items on the menu besides their superb ribs. Plenty of parking.

For a chain restaurant this BBQ is awesome! It's cute and the staff is really sweet. The day we were there they had Peanut Butter Pie - don't miss this slice! The best Rib City we've been to. Baby backs, fries, cole slaw all the way.

The service was very good. We went with a large group, and couldn't believe how fast the food was delivered. The food was alright. I have had/made better ribs, but the overall experience was good.

Not bad ribs for not being on a real pit. Tender and had a pretty good flavor from the griddle. Be sure to ask for them without sauce if you are diabetic as the sauce is loaded in sugar as are the sides.

Being from the south we know Q. Ribs were very good and fired okra could have come from my grandmother's farm. Pork is southern good and there was plenty to eat. Our server was attentive and kept us in drinks. Good place for Montrose.

Thanks for checking us out! You definitely know BBQ, Ron, so your opinion means a lot to us. Saying our okra was good enough to come from your grandmother's farm is one of the best compliments we've ever received, and I'm so glad your server took great care of you. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Best,... More
