Met my wife for lunch at the Rib Crib in St. Joseph, MO. The staff were nice and we were seated right away. Our order was taken within five minutes and our food out within another 1-15 minutes. The waitress took excellent care of us.

The manager is a friendly person who tries to take care of his diners with hospitality and asks them to return. The portion sizes were large and the food was delicious.

Oh that smell when you walk in!!! So enticing, intoxicating...... Was just in for a quick lunch but you had me at the front door "Solicitors will be smoked". But just walking in and catching that smell just sets you at ease. I had the Crib-wich - brisket with sausage on a bun, messy - the way it should be,... More

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
