I've driven by many times and wondered at the full parking lot. My friends, with two small children, say it's their favorite BBQ joint. The food was great and not just the meats, I loved the collard greens and the green beans are favorites, too....More

The best rib joints in my world are pretty plain, down home, local places. Rainin' Ribs is just what I like. Picnic tables under a giant tent. Sauces made there. Plenty of meats and sides, and all done well, in my opinion. I've eaten here...More

I live nearby and have eaten at this restaurant many times. It has a nice selection of well prepared foods. Great sauces. Service is fast and friendly. Good prices and very casual. It has heated, enclosed tent seating at picnic tables.

Best place for BBQ in the Seattle area. Fantastic ribs and decent pulled-pork sandwich. The hushpuppies are hit/miss. The last few times they've been nearly burned on the outside, but fine inside. Sometimes more spicy than others. If it's a busy game day or Fri/Sat...More

We stopped for a long day drive and sightseeing and were not disappointed. The staff is friendly, service is fast, portions are more than generous and the craft brewed root beer is a must. The ribs were ordered were flavoured perfectly and with the options...More

Loved this place! The best places tend to be "hole in the wall" eateries and this is a super addition to my list. Very casual restaurant on the side of the road ... as soon as you get out of your car, you smell the...More

I have been driving past this place for a couple of years and finally stopped last month when I had run out of carry-out ideas to bring home for dinner.... So Happy I Did! I enjoyed a frosty "Draft" Rootbeer as I waited only 10-15...More
