Over-priced, horrible quality, overall downer.

So....there aren't that many places to go for ribs in the area. I tried this place out probably 5 years ago and was disappointed. I thought they were just having a bad night since i read great reviews online. Nonetheless, tonight I thought I'd give it a second try. For $14, i bought a half slab of ribs, with two sides, mac salad and potato salad. I had one rib, which was grisslie, hardly any meat on the bone, an... view more

Yearning for a good rib feast - This did the trick

I had a yearning for a Saturday night rib feast and headed to the Rib Crib. The half-slab of short ribs(mild sauce) tasted exactly how I hoped it would. I've been visiting the Rib Crib, off and on, for the better part of twenty five years and always enjoy this special treat.

not up to the hype

So I went because of all the good things I've heard. I won't be back. The ribs had no meat on them, the sauce was watery and the service so, so.\r \r They don't take credit cards, fine I said. How much is my order? $52. I had to get my emergency $50 out of my wallet since I only had $46 on me. Then he says ""We don't take $50's"". I asked if they had a mac machine. No, sorry we don't. I offered to pay with th... view more

Existing past its prime!

Years ago I used to visit this place at least 2-3 times a month. For nostalgic reasons, I decided to re-visit to see if the ribs were as great as they were 25 years ago. I got the baby back ribs which were over cooked to the point that the rib meat was brittle. And regarding that special sauce, the secret recipe must have been lost because it was totally awful! That surprised me more than the brittle meat. But, ... view more

How the mighty has fallen

As a child, my mother as well as the rest of my family would anxiously await Friday or Saturday nights to get ribs from the RIB CRIB. We bragged to everyone about the food served. Unfortunately the product being served there now would make the owners of that time (Mr. & Mrs. Gray) toss their cookies after seeing what has become of the icon people flocked to from far and wide. My most recent experience is as follow... view more

BEST RIBS IN PHILLY!!!!

THEY ARE UNDOUBTEDLY THE BEST RIBS IN PHILLY!! ALWAYS CONSISTENT WITH QUALITY, FLAVOR AND QUANITY. I HAVE VISITED SEVERAL OTHER RIB STOPS AND NONE CAN TOUCH ""THE RIB CRIB"" THE HOSPITALITY IS THE GREATEST. ALSO, CAN BE EDUCATIONAL IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

Best in Philly

The ribs are great. The owner himself opens the door and greets you on many occasions. He's a gentleman with a handlebar mustache. There are great pictures of local celebs on the walls.

Keep your day job

Being from Chicago, I KNOW BBQ, and ribs. This place was recommended, and I was greatly disappointed. The chicken was fair, the ribs were awful, and no good sides offered. Although I was impressed with the gentleman greeting us at the door, (seeing as though most east coast people are abrasive) I just wasn't impressed with the food.

Awsome Ribs at Rib Crib

Rib Crib is the greatest rib spot in philly if not the east coast. Although it's only take out, it can't be beat. From the sawdust on the floor to the photos of prominent blacks lining the walls, Rib Crib is an example of old fashioned soul food style take out. When the food is this good, there is no need to serve anything but mouthwatering ribs with a side salad or a whole bbq chicken! Other places may be open more ... view more
