Rib Crib Barbecue Franchise

Barbecue restaurant

In 1992, Bret Chandler remodeled an abandoned home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, turning it into the first Rib Crib restaurant. Though Rib Cribs are no longer located in old homes, they retain the look of a ranch house, complete with Western-themed decor. Rib Crib's menu includes ribs, chicken, ham and appetizers such as potato skins and nachos, available for dining in or catering.
