Bar-bie-que Nacho

Has anyone been to Rib City yet? Is it any good? Do they have bar-b-qued nachos? How are the prices?

Prices are a little high. My family of four spent $48 on a meal that we usually get at Bobby Q's for $30. The taste was very similar to Bobby Q's. My husband thinks the taste at Bobby Q's is better than Rib City. The atmosphere is nice (Kind of along the lines of Applebee's).

We went tonight. I agree that it was good and pricey. Children's meals are very small so for a 12 year old to eat adult meals it is costly. They also "upcharge" if you want to share a meal with a child. I found it to be better tasting than Bobby Q's. I would probably go back but not often and on a date night without kids.

I did not see much price difference from Bobby Q's
both are high but you get what you pay for.

it's on jackson street where jackson street grill used to be, just down the road from Kohl's. We had one in Fort Myers FL. and it was really good. We've not been to this one yet. I didn't realize they had opened yet. Thanks for letting us know.

Me and the ole man spend 50 for two people so 48 for four is good news to us. We prefer to make date night unforgetable.

thanks for all the reviews guys, I`ll be visiting very soon!

It`s hard to find good BBQ, Though I saw on tv that Tennessee in a taste test got the best out of the highest rated BBQ places in the usa.

(they were referring to memphis, the blacks know how to cook! but I assume either way we have the old timey feel that makes BBQ worth it in driving!)

bless ya`ll.

Found a BBQ place that blows Rib City out of the water = Tennessee BBQ in Livingston. Everything is homemade - not frozen like many of the sides at the other places. The desserts are amazing like cobbler and banana pudding. While you are waiting they bring you fresh hot hoe cakes and butter. It is locally owned and operated. We stumbled upon it while visiting the area. We will definitely go back!

I thought the prices were decent however, the amount you get is small. The ribs are small but, delicious! My child (2 years old) got a free meal.. It consisted of a small chicken leg and a choice of fries or a bowl of peaches. Hmm not sure why. She said it comes free. They were very friendly too..

Rib City and G's BBQ near Park View are the two best barbecue joints in town, but on taste alone...G's barbecue by Park View school takes the cake. Ask anyone who's been there. The little drive through spot.

But on Rib City, yes Excellent food, and great atmosphere, but plan to spend about as much as a good meal at Chilis or Cheddars (completely worth it though) Will be going back.

Blacks? Seriously, why did you even have to go there!? All you had to do is leave it at Memphis! You wouldn't ever call out and say they were referring to the whites! So, why do it with any other race or nationality! Whether you meant it that way or not...it's not necessary! People are people.

It was a little politically incorrect to use the term "blacks" yes, but still it is complement. I agree with what he said though somewhat, African Americans in general cook the absolute BEST BBQ, bar none in my honest opinion, the same as asians cook the best chicken and egg drop soup bar none, and people of actual hispanic origin seem to cook the best burritos, tacos, and what not even over tacobell or whatever you want to compare it to. I'm twice as likely to go to an african american ownen bbq joint as a white, asian, or hispanic or any other nationality just because my experience is that African americans seem to know the best bbq recipes and white people just dont have it the way they do.

I would prefer to eat at a BBQ place that is ownwed and operated by blacks rather than whites. I would prefer to eat at a Mexican place that is owned and operated by Mexicans rather than whites. I would rather eat at a Japanese place that is owned and operated by Japanese rather than whites. It's a Duck not a migrating feathered fowl. It's a dog and not a purebred canine. Screw PC.
