Reviewed 27 October 2011

We had a Groupon for the rib shack so we decided to give it a try. We purchased the sampler and found the meal to be awful. I've had better BBQ style pork ribs at Costco! The pork and beef ribs were tender, but not smoky as expected with BBQ. The chicken was so dry we couldn't even eat it drowned it BBQ sauce. Had to give it one star for the staff being friendly. Won't be going back!!

Went today in the rain. (Foolish me). No parking, wrong phone nbr on website (several websites), and prices are NOT CURRENT. To top it off, after ordering ONE POUND of rib tips for the (new) higher price, I only rec'd 13 oz. It is really bad in this economy when you can't even get what you paid for. I only gave two stars because the service was friendly. The food AT BEST was okay. Spicy sauce was not bad, the rib tips were just okay (noting to write home about) and the bavarian potato salad was also just okay. Definitely was not worth the gas to make the trip.

This one of the really good bar b que joints on the West Coast. Their
beef ribs are surely the eighth deadly sin and the pork isn't far behind. The sides are also stellar and if you don't like the spicy extra sauce, then you probably belong at the Denny's down the road.
