Stopped in here at random to eat a meal before a concert. This is directly across from Bridgestone Arena. We luckily found a table in the bar area or else we would have had a half hour wait. The place was slammed and had great local bands playing a mix of pop, rock & country tunes. Getting table service was slow and we had some order mix-ups, but eventually had a few cold beers and pork sandwiches. In general the experience was fun!

In town with my sons and was looking for a lunchtime meal. Although the hostess said the wait was 20 minutes they called us in less than 5. Great and friendly server. We sampled the ribs, the brisket and pulled pork. all excellent. Loved the onion rings. Good music. They even had toothpicks for the leftovers.

Rippy's always brings in a lively crowd, since it's right next to Bridgestone arena. Song requests are a bit steep ($20), but always a fun time. Miss it :)

With BBQ, live music, and cold beer, you can’t go wrong by visiting Rippy’s on Broadway. The pulled pork plate was a large portion of smoked pork served with two side choices. The customer service was fantastic and the band was great. Be prepared to spend $6 for a domestic beer! However, that seems to be the standard price for a beer on Broadway or in the main downtown area in general.

Good drinks from the bar. No cover charge. We didn't eat here, but they do have a food menu; typical bar and grill food. I heard the barbeque items are pretty good. Live country music was enjoyable. Service was prompt and friendly. We sat on the side that was open to the street; great for people watching and even saw a country music star's tour bus and tractor trailer rig slowly pass by. Public parking in the vicinity will set you back $20.
