With every trip to Cape Coral we try to visit this restaurant. We first discovered Rib City about 11 years ago. The ribs are delicious and fall off the bone as claimed. The side dishes - especially the okra which we can't get up North - is great as both an appetizer or to order as a side to the... More

The rib is good. No doubt. My other half had smoked chichen, she was not satisfied. Staff was friendly but on autopilot. Not very passionate.

This is a large casual restaurant. We went on a Tuesday evening and were seated immediately, as it wasn't busy .Having read Schillerone's review of this restaurant I would have to agree. They have good, fall off the bone ribs ,not the best we have ever tasted , but good. Everything else we had ,okra appetizer, chicken, shrimp and salad,... More

We went to Rib City a couple times already and we will go again for sure. The ribs are really excellent and it's worth to visit them just for this. If you are not into ribs you can go with other dishes of course, but don't expect too much. As of our experience, other dishes are ok, but really just... More

We found this place by mistake, so decided to try it. They do not offer a full bar, but the beer was cold. We had the sliced smoked pork which was not as moist as I like, but the Ribs were amazing. The staff seemed a bit confused and it could be a little cleaner than it was. Overall, it... More

We decided to give this place a try mainly because it's so damn expensive to eat out in this area that we wanted to find a couple of places that a bit more reasonable. The service was great, and the food pretty good. A LOT of salt and sugar used in the food by the taste of it but a... More

After reading mixed reviews we decided that we would take a chance and hope that we would be able to agree with the good reviews.....well we can indeed!
