Rib City is very consistant on food quality. I always enjoy the fried okra, ribs, and chicken. The service is quick & friendly. Love the sweet ice tea one of the best in town!

Went while holidaying in Cape Coral and had a really nice meal with beers at 50 cents a bottle on Wednesday nights. Result.

No frills but great service, if you like ribs this is the place to go, washed down with beer or wine limited choice but good enough. The Combo is worth sharing or for lighter consumption scale down to half ribs of half chicken with choice of sauces. We didn't leave hungry.

Went during prime time on Friday night and we're seated immediately. Place was not crowded at all for 7pm. Waitress was very nice and attentive but was not very knowledgeable when we asked questions about the menu, I think she was a new employee. I had the special ribs with shrimp. The ribs were good but the shrimp only came... More

This place has it all. Great Ribs, Chicken and Beef. The Baked Beans, Corn on the Cob, Cole Slaw was just as good as the main course. Will definately come back again.

The ribs I had here were over cooked and chewy, there are some many better barbecue restaurants in the area.

They had a great rib special the night we ate there --- a full rack of ribs with two sides (I had baked beans and corn on the cob) for $13.99. I usually only order a half rack, but at that price I said what the heck and went for it. I ate all of the ribs by myself and... More

We have gone to Rib City on Leonard St. for years. My husband loves the Wed. night beer special which he takes pictures of and brags to his friends about. We love that Sonja knows and brings our order with just checking with us to see if we want to try something else on the menu. The restaurant is kept... More

It is cheap and the food is mediocre. I definitely would not recommend the ribs, but the place is somewhat busy considering. I don't think this local area has ever had a good rib shack compared to what we are used to in the midwest. Someone likes to eat here, but after two tries, we haven't gone back. Too many... More
