Just bought and took home dry and tasteless ribs. Not sure if it's the Matthew (storm/hurricane) weather that caused it but it was horrible. I've had it twice before, 1st quite good, 2nd time it was tough like it needed more cooking time now it's dry and next to having no taste. Consistency would be nice.

The workers were very nice and the atmosphere was relaxing. If you like ribs, go there! They are good and well priced! For me, it was a little bit of home on the island!

This is the place for excellent ribs! And cheap too! You will not be disappointed. Eat in or fast take out. Bring mosquito spray if you eat outside just in case.

Awesome ribs, my 9 yr old son wouldn't stop talking about it. He made us go back again and again. Great service, cold beer, not expensive

If we want good ribs we go to the Ribs factory. Although the location is not the most beautiful the food is good. Also try the quesedillas.

Delicious ribs and "go-withs," menu is otherwise not extensive but has enough other options for those not into ribs. Staff was friendly and welcoming, place was clean and had good non-fancy atmosphere. Outdoor or indoor dining. Go with the "full slab" of ribs because it is good enough, you'll want lots!

Walked 35 minutes to reach Rib Factory. We had read many favourable reviews. We were not disappointed. We did have the ribs and French fries and they were quite good.
