Don't listen to the negative reviews on here. If you want ambience this isn't the place for you. It looks like a lunch counter in a deserted strip mall out of the walking dead. However, if you want great bbq do yourself a favor and...More

This BBQ joint is really good. The food is fresh and had just the correct amount of spice rub. The spare ribs were very good as well as the brisket and sides.

Again, the people are really nice. It was supposed to be a barbeque restaurant. Well, they don't make it there. Everything is in a steamer and I don't know why we stayed. Probably because there is nothing to eat in the town.

Rix serves chicken fried steak on Tuesdays. If you want the perfect chicken fried steak, this is your place. Any day of the week they'll make you a hamburger that reminds me of the Big Boy's Burgers of the 1950's. The restaurant is authentic West...More

I've eaten at Rix on numerous occasions over the last 16 months. The BBQ is delicious, but what I like just as much is the daily special they serve Mon-Fri. Hamburger steak (smothered with onions) on Monday, Chicken Fried Steak on Tuesday, Pork chop (battered...More
