Never expect anything but the tastiest BBQ ever put in your mouth. Sides are good some better than others. But the beans are outstanding. Take home some sauce.

We enjoy their baby back ribs as well as the home style side dishes. We usually call in for carry out and the service has always been good.

Common place to eat fast at reasonable price. The meat of the barbecue apparently was cooked before grilling what I didnt like much. Just grilled is more tasty.

We were pressed for time, hungry and rather tired of BBQ that lacked character and skill at the smoker. We had never tried Rick's .... no reason, just never tried it. This time we decided to give it a try since we had to drive by it anyway. I ordered a combo of pulled pork and dark meat chicken with collard greens and coleslaw. Husband stayed with chicken, his sides coleslaw and potato salad. We got an order of smoked wings as well...six, the order said but there were a couple more in the box.
We were very satisfied with it overall. The meat was flavorful, tender and juicy, unlike the dry, overdone, under flavored pork of chain BBQ places. My dark meat chicken could have been just a tad more done but it didn't detract from the dish. The smoked wings were probably some of the best we've had in a very long time. They were tender, juicy and smokey but not sickening smokey...just right. The sides were really good, home style collard greens, the coleslaw was creamy, flavorful and crunchy the way fresh cabbage should be. The potato salad was quite good - might have used some more onion...but that's just me. The price was right, order filled quickly and the place is easy to get to. This was our first time....but we will return.

If you like fall of the bone ribs, great pulled pork or smoked chicken, then you have to have Rick's BBQ! Love their sides too...I'm partial to the mac n cheese, green beans, and corn salad (which is like 3 bean salad, only better!) The staff is super friendly and the service is super fast and the prices are less than most BBQ places in town! By far the best BBQ in Winter Haven, Fl
