“Tender ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Waited 5 days to get these ribs. Limited hours, but worth the wait. Make sure you check their hours before walking/driving over.

“Definitely not The Best Ribs in America”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013 via mobile

These ribs were just average. Not horrible but not the best. I would choose to go to Porkys over here.

“Above Average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

This location is take out only. Open Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat from 5 to 8 pm.

If you have a craving for good ribs Sunday through Tuesday, wait til Wednesday it will be worth it.

The baby backs are not overly thick with meat, however, there is no fat on these and they were cooked to perfection. The key ingredient is the sauce--a perfect mix of sweet and tangy, but not spicy.

I did ribs only so can't comment on the chicken or sides.

If you love ribs and don't plan to fill yourself on chicken or sides, plan on a rack and a half.
Lighter eaters, 3/4 of a rack.
Enjoy !

“Bad choice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013 via mobile

We purchased the package with coupon and got sick from the food. The chicken tasted bad and I warned my husband. But he ate some. Both of us got sick from the food. The beans tasted good. But I do not suggest it to anyone.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

I make a stop at Michelbob's my number 1 priority any time I am in SW Florida. Their ribs are absolutely the best. Even though the Marco location is take-out only and has limited hours, it is definitely worth the effort to check them out. The Naples location is also worth the time to get to.
