Their food is delicious. Don't let the line or the cramped quarters stop you from visiting this spot. The chopped BBQ, barbecue chicken and the beef ribs are delicious, but a visit to Royal Rib just ain't a visit without sampling their BBQ pork ribs! Ribs are sold by the half-pound and pound, and they offer plenty of tasty sides (collard greens, blackeyed peas and rice, mac & cheese, etc.) to round out the meal. Take the A/C train to Kingston/Throop and enjoy!!!!
Pros: The food is outstanding! There's really no ambience--this is a "get it and git" type of place.
Cons: The wait on a Friday is a bit long because of the high demand for their choice eats, but you can always call in your order beforehand to save time.
