Great BBQ. I had chicken and pulled pork and my companion had the ribs. Both meals were great. The baked beans were excellent. Fast and attentive service. You will not leave here hungry.

Probably some of the best bar b q I've had since leaving Kentucky. Service was fast and courteous in spite of the crowd. They had fresh brewed sweet tea.The selection of sauces was fantastic.

My husband and I have eaten here twice. Each time the ribs have been fall of the bone delicious. The chicken, although not crisp skinned is moist & also fall off the bone. The side of corn is cooked perfectly with lots of flavor and tender and not soft. I am sensitive to overly salty foods, but was pleasantly surprised... More

In an earlier review I gave this restaurant 5 stars. Their food is great however, I must update my review (and downgrade my rating) to include a commentary regarding their handicap access. My sister is back down from the north and we have both eaten here before. Yesterday we went again on a Sunday afternoon at 3:00 pm and I... More

We had such a nice meal, I don't know where to start! Checking out other people's food as we walked to our table just made me hungrier, especially the 3 cheese fries appetizer that seemed to be everywhere! All 6 of our party got baby back ribs (I got a combo platter so I had smoked beef as well), and... More

but do you want a good name or good food? Sorry, I've eaten at rib places all over the country and the Rib City on east Palm Beach Blvd (almost to Alva - tho' it says "just 4 miles east of I-75) is consistently good and bears going back to over and over. The staff is friendly without being overbearing,... More

Walked in about 6:30, got seated way in back, just the two of us. Took a while for the waitress to take out order. When we finally received it it was dry, and the slaw was watery, and the beans the same. Been to a better rib restaurant a few miles down the road.

This is a chain restaurant in the Ft Myers, Fl area. The atmosphere is very casual, but the service and food are very good. Lots of choices for barbecue foods and you can pick from a number of barbecue sauces at each table.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and ordered the slab of baby back ribs. Soooo good! The ribs were so good that we came back the next day for a repeat! The ribs were falling off the bone and were smoked just right through out the meat. Wonderful! A must go!
