We do Take Out!

The new location is owned and operated by family members Brooke Miller, Jean Geiger, Gary Bellm, Ashley Knight, Shannon Knight and Dean Schmitt. Miller, Geiger and Bellm first learned about Rib City while dining at the barbecue chain’s corporately owned location in South Fort Myers.

“They loved the food and found out the company was franchising into other states,” said Schmitt.

Schmitt serves as general manager and his wife Shannon Knight serves as business manager. Schmitt and Knight previously worked in the restaurant business including positions with Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises Inc. in Chicago before moving to Alton.

“We have missed the restaurant business and are very excited to bring Alton Rib City’s famous fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs,” said Schmitt.

ABOUT THE SMOKING PROCESS

To achieve that real backyard barbecue flavor, meat must be cooked slowly over just the right wood fire. At Rib City®, choice cuts of meat are basted with our signature barbecue sauce and smoked over selected hardwoods - including Red Oak - carefully balancing heat and cooking time to seal in that distinctive Rib City® Barbecue taste!

All of our meats are slow cooked to perfection in our wood-burning smokers! Select from Award Winning Imported Baby Back Ribs; St. Louis Spare Ribs by the plateful; lean Beef and Pork sliced thin; plump, juicy Chicken; delicious Smoked Turkey Breast or tender Riblets. Top our meats with one of our four secret recipe signature Barbecue Sauces - Sweet, Tangy, Hot or Carolina Mustard.

The pink coloring and ring in our Beef, Pork, Chicken, Turkey and Ribs is due to our barbecue cooking process and basting sauces. Look for the pink smoke ring to ensure you are eating REAL smoked barbecue!
