The people we go out to dinner love this place. We are snow birds and quite frankly we are not impressed with their ribs. They were dried out and not very good. My husband said they probably cook them and then reheat. There are too many good places in St. Pete then to go to Rib City.

This restaurant offers a good assortment of BBQ dishes and meals. The rack of ribs is good and prices are not high. They offer a good selection of sides for dinners.

Been here on many occasions & quite simply it's the best ! The Baby back ribs are to die for. The service is fast, courteous & efficient & I can't fault this place at all. We will be returning next year

The food was great and reasonable priced. I gave it four stars because the service was horrible. We sat for more than 10 minutes and waited on refills. The ribs were very good and a good portion. I had the smoked turkey dinner which was excellent as well.

You can't find baby backs or pulled pork any better than this in pinellas county, and the prices are very reasonable here. Service is great too. And..... one of the best burgers in town, super chicken strips, lots of other really great menu selections. We would go out of our way to come here, it is that good. It is... More

The beef ribs were over cooked and the pork ribs undercooked. There were three other couples yet we still received poor service. The coleslaw was good.

My wife and I went here last month June 2016, they had fine baby back ribs and smoked sliced pork and thought that we would try them again on July 16, 2016 and its still the best we have enjoyed here in St. Petersburg, fl. The meats are all tender and the ribs almost fall off of the bone. Great... More

We wanted BBQ for our last night in the area and are we ever glad we chose Rib City. We expected a bit of a wait but we were seated with 20 minutes of arriving; we had been told 35-40 minutes. Service was fantastic, our waitress took the time to explain the sauces on the table and offer the additional... More

We have a Rib City in St. Louis where I am from so I knew this would be a good place to eat. Yes it was ! But, unlike the St. Louis location they do not offer smoked Brisket. I ordered the Tony's combo with brisket and was given their regular beef. After asking the waitress about it she said... More
