It's rib paradise, you can have all you can eat ribs at +/- $20 with a soft drink. Ribs were really well seasoned but some were quite overcooked and a little bit dry but nothing some extra bbq sauce could fix (if you like bbq sauce on ribs). Staff was really friendly and helpful and overall it's a place I... More

I got the Chopped Brisket Sandwich and my friend got the Chicken Nachos, both were excellent. The restaurant and staff were clean, the service was efficient and the food was tasty.

Business lunch at Rib Crib, sorry to say we will not visit here again. I had the 2-choice luncheon plate with sliced brisket and smoked turkey (small portions) which was very cold and very dry, and cole slaw, which was really awful, tasted very old and watery. The toast that came with it was also very cold and dry. It... More

Took my son to the Rib Crib for dinner and a chance to fill him up with some BBQ. We arrived at the restaurant at 4:00 pm to beat the dinner rush and was promptly seated. Our server was very pleasant, she took our drink order and then returned shortly to take our order. Unlimited ribs and sides were soon... More

We visited this local BBQ establishment on our first night in St. Joseph, a Monday. We arrived at 5pm and there was nobody else in the place. A few more arrived during our visit. We ordered entrees only. The meat was good, not quite juicy, but not dry either. Sliced meats were very good. The ribs aren't the best, but... More

We ordered the all you could ribs with an appetizer. Wait staff was polite but not overly quick. Food was delicious and portion size was good. Atmosphere nice. Would eat here again!

We are recent transplants to Saint Joseph, MO and we decided to try this for the first time here. Don't bother. The food was not seasoned, no flavor. The brisket was cold and dry. The sauces were okay. The mustard sauce was weird. The coleslaw was yuck (and I like coleslaw). They do not offer beer or wine and only... More

I recently dined here with coworkers two days in a row. The first day I had the all-you-can-eat ribs special. The ribs were good for the first couple of plates and then so so after that. The side of mashed potatoes was really good. The next day I went with the two meat special which included chop beef and turkey... More

First off, the waitress talked to us in a robot-fashion, and like she was in a real hurry, but the place was not crowded. Maybe too much coffee that morning? We ordered the 3-meat combo to share as we hadn't tried this place before, so glad we didn't order full meals for both of us. The ribs, all TWO of... More
