Any address/phone info?

I did a Google search and can't find an address or any info other than a generic YouTube video listing a Rib City Ale House menu with an "Our City, Your City" label, as if they plan on franchising all over the US.

What kind of cooker do they use?
A pre-owned Southern Pride?

A little background in the interest of full disclosure: A friend of mine had eaten at the Rib City Ale House last week. One of the owners had come to her table to ask how things were, to which she replied that her friend (me) made better BBQ than he was selling. She mentioned that I catered and he asked if I was interested in doing his catering. I have been looking for a kitchen to work out of, so I decided I would take his remark at face value (i.e., he's not just bs-ing a pretty girl) and stop by to check the place out and maybe talk to the man. When my friend, my girlfriend and I got there he'd gone home, but we decided to stay for dinner. I'm still looking for a kitchen to work out of if any LI Brethren knows of one.

To the review: We tried the soup of the day, which was a creamy potato with chopped bacon and cheddar cheese on top. Very rich and good. Think New England chowder with no clams. Possibly the high point of the meal.

We also tried the fried okra with ranch dressing. It wasn't bad, and a lot less "stringy" than some fried okra I've had, but my guess is that it was bought blanched, breaded and frozen and just fried on the premises. It had that "too uniform" look of a store bought product.

The Skyscraper Onion Strings was a large mound of battered fried onions which was on the menu as coming with bbq sauce, but which arrived with ranch dressing. No problem to me, as I like ranch dressing. The onions themselves looked to have been pressed into the point of a chinois to form them into a volcano-like shape, and then inverted into the serving dish. This was a lot of onions, more than the three of us could finish. Problem was, they weren't crisp, more like greasy. The flavor was OK, but the grease and the texture left much to be desired. In their defense, I was expecting something like the onion rings at the Good Steer, which is a high standard to hold.

Liz and I ordered the Feast for Two, which comes with pork, beef, ribs and chicken and four sides. This was the major disappointment of the night. The pork seemed to have come from a roast loin or some similarly lean piece of meat. It wasn't pulled, but was sliced paper thin. It was dry as old sin. It had very little smoke flavor. Not acceptable as roast pork much less bbq. It did, however, meet its match in the beef. I was expecting brisket, but got eye round. It was every bit as dry as the pork and sliced just as thin. It, too, lacked smoke flavor; indeed, it lacked beef flavor. The lack of smokiness extended to the ribs, although they were moist and had a good tenderness/texture. Friend Mary commented that they also lacked the "porky" flavor that my ribs have. The sauce partially redeemed things, as it was a nice mix of tart and sweet. The chicken came basted in the same sauce and was basically OK, too. The sides (fries, sweet potato, creamed spinach) were also OK, if not notable, but the corn on the cob was possibly the worst piece of corn I have ever eaten. Mushy, watery and tastless all at once.

We passed on desert or coffee.

I will admit that we were delayed and got to the restaurant around 8:45 on a Sunday night, not necessarily the best time for dining out, but if a restaurant is not prepared to serve, they shouldn't stay open.

The service was good, and our waitress, Joyce, was very pleasant, but she was fighting an uphill battle against the food.

Thanks for the update Brian,
saved me a trip.
I can get a pint of Guinness locally;
better yet at home tomorrow night.

(Maybe they need some lessons on how to use the cooker?)

The lesson on the cooker was the easy part it was trying to convince them that premade rub and doctered sauce was not the way to go. Then I found out about the pork loin and Beef eye round they were going to use as BBQ and thru my hands up at that point.
