Reviews of Ridgewood Barbecue

True it is not much to look at, but they people are nice and the food is (most important) really good. Home cut fries, really good BBQ and what looks like runny BBQ beans. But much to my surprise they are great and addictive, so addictive I got an order to go. We will go back!

The BBQ an Beans were Great, the fries could stand to be a little more done. The young guy that runs the cash register needs to be a little more nicer to people, PPL take attitudes seriously... The food was great!

May have been a great place once but today? Sorry, no. Fries are soggy. Baked beans have lots of liquid, few beans. More like bean soup. Cole slaw, BBQ sauce, meat and meat serving size are "OK" . . . nothing spectacular . . . better than some, not as good as others. Parking is unsafe. Seating is lousy. Waiting room is like waiting at a bus stop. Service was unspectacular. Crowded, noisy and frankly, the place smells of dirt ad lack of cleaning. Basically, you get to sit in a crowded, noisy, smelly room with walls covered by old photos and for the "ambience" you will empty your wallet. Total rip-off basically surviving on past glories. Avoid. Oh, did I mention it was waaaaay over-priced?

Been going to The Ridgewood for years and it remains one of my very favorite restaurants. No pretentions, just great food!

There is no BBQ anywhere that can even be considered on the same page as Ridgewood. This BBQ ad beans are absolutely out of this world.

Forget it NC, Texas and Anywhere else. Ridgewood Barbecue sauce is the Nectar of the Gods. If you want the BEST barbecue, don't waste your time anywhere else. Just sit back, loosen your belt and get ready to be satisfied. P.S. If you want the true barbecue experience, park next to the little screened in building just down the hill and leave your car windows cracked a little. The hickory smoke will fill your car and you can dream about your trip for the next week or so.
