Description: If it's delicious BBQ, in a dinner house that knows more than just great BBQ, Newport Rib Company is your place. Comfortable booths, a great bar with sports on the TV, and a staff so friendly you'll think that you’re part of the family...and you are. This local landmark has been serving BBQ’d specialties for over 25 years; slow roasted tri-tip, Prime rib, juicy steaks, stiff martini's and great salads all add up to a first-rate experience without the first-rate price. Come and find out why this family-owned business has become a MUST-have when visiting the Orange County area. Try the onion brick or the grilled artichoke for appetizers, the BBQ’d chopped tri-tip or chicken salad is a health conscious favorite, but the meat is center stage at this one of a kind Costa Mesa institution. Take-out, catering from 25 to 2500 guests, a banquet room which seats 80, large comfortable booths, and an environment that caters to our guests no matter if regulars or soon to be’s.

“Family fun”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Newport Rib Company is a family friendly restaurant with a varied menu (something for everyone). The combos are enormous, but there are children's and even senior meals for the lighter appetites.
Happy Hour is a great value. Parking is easy. The employees are attentive and friendly. Our family dines here regularly and everyone loves it.

“Great Sauce, Great Meat, Great Service”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

The smell of barbeque greets you when you step out of your car. Newport Rib Company is the place to go for ribs, chicken and tri-tip. The starter is a warm loaf of cornbread (individual size). There is even gluten free upon request. A wide variety of meats and sides enhance the yummy bq sauce. Everything we have ordered over the past four years has been terrific. Service is fast and friendly.

“Best Ribs In Orange County”
Reviewed 10 March 2013 via mobile

Cousin to Naples Rib Co of Lon Beach this local's favorite knows their Baby Back Ribs. Great take away options for the big game. Recently decorated with many TVs, it now has a bit of a sports bar feel.

“Premiere Ribs of OC”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

Newport Rib, and their sister locations, offers the best BBQ baby back ribs in Orange County. The meal is always satisfying, though heavy, and the sides are good enough or better. Portion sizes are pretty large, too. Service is okay, and the newly decorated interior is welcome. They offer great deals on take out; you couldn't do much better for a tailgating event then pick up one of their large to go packs.
