Location: Cleveland, GA
Rib Country is a great place to stop by on your way to several great places in North Georgia. It’s right on Highway 129 as you head north toward Blairsville, Yonah Mountain or the Sautee Nacoochee Gap area (east or west, depending from which direction you’re coming).
The atmosphere is pure country with all the beautiful wood. Tables and booths, mason jars for drinking and round, silver trays for getting your platter of meat. The staff are friendly, and, typically, the customers are, too.
I suggest the brisket platter or the chicken, but if you prefer pork, lots of people do. The salads are always good, and the onion loaf can feed a small crowd. There are several BBQ sauces from which to choose, and homemade nana pudding and cobbler can be chosen for dessert.
Honestly, this isn’t my favorite BBQ, but it’s a solid B when you’re in that area. The last time we visited, it wasn’t as good as usual, but I’m hoping it was just a passing moment. We’ll be trying it again soon, and we’re hoping it will be better.
