Best kept secret in the O.C.. A great place to eat and drink. The baby back ribs and BBQ chicken are the best. Real drinks, real people, friendly bartenders. Live Hippy Hillbilly music most Wednesdays. If you like authentic old school bars, you must check this place out, kind of like the 55 bar or White Horse in NYC.... a true jewel, a rarity in the O.C. If Dylan Thomas was alive today, he would have his last drink at The Rib Joint.
Bomb Food, better cornbread. Iv'e been eating at the Rib Joint in Dana Point for 17 years, ya i said it "17" years and iv'e never had better ribs in my life, infact most everything they make is made from scratch. The cook and owner dedicates his time to preping everything to perfection, my personal favorite dish is the feast for two, i'll eat the whole thing by myself and don't get me wrong this is a big dish, theres also a feast for 4, and i think a feast for 6 if you've got the mouths for it. anyone who knocks or says the rib joint has bad food is out of there minds. If your a local an have never been i suggest heading on in, if not a local and are ever visiting Dana point in Orange County go on in an see for yourself. :)
great ribs live music and stiff drinks. This is a great place for some delicious ribs. I also enjoyed the baked chicken. They have live music most nights and the bar tenders pour them tall and stiff. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Great location right on PCH in Dana Point CA.
Best Ribs in California.
If you like Memphis style dry rub pork ribs then you'll love The Rib Joint.
We had ribs at Rendezvous in Memphis TN and this is the best place that comes close.
Better than all the "traditional" rib spots like Tonys, etc.
Atmosphere and décor could be much better.
