Ok,Rib Trader is one of the best BBQ joints in SoCal. We have been going here with family for over 15 years now. Birthdays, special occasions, and just a night out with good food. It used to be a TiKi theme with arrows, ceremonial masks, and various artifacts, kinda jungle like, all up on the wall, which we all loved. The owner up-graded a bit, changed the decor. It's nice but, I miss the ambiance of the Rib Trader original motif. The important thing is they did not change the food..thank goodness!! it's great and such good prices. The BBQ, sides, everything is delicious. The feel is very local, community. Most of the waitress/ waiters are students as well. Jim is a waiter who has been there for years. He's great and he will make you feel like you're family!! The owner walks around often and asks if everything is to your liking..We like that. Rib Trader, is one of the best homecooked BBQ family restaurants...forget about the "manufactured corporate" BBQ places in OC. They can't compare to Rib Trader.. Really Excellent...you'll see!!
