Ribs USA used to be a favourite of Bob Hope and Jay Leno when he did the Tonight Show out of Burbank and occasionally still drops by. Great ribs and Brandon the Banker and the baby backs can't ever be beat. Love the homemade BBQ beans and coleslaw.

I've been there a couple of times and not been impressed. The food is tasty, but not what I was hoping for. Service is a little too casual. It's okay, but maybe once or twice a year is plenty.

Very small restaurant like a cafe you would find on route 66 on a small town. Nothing fancy. Almost across from Warner Bros studios. Tender baby back ribs, and chicken wings sold by the pound! Sides are the traditional ones, skip the macaroni, Veteran owned and discount given with I D.

After picking up concert tickets, my husband and I wanted to eat something quick and get it to go, so we ran across the street to Ribs USA. I ordered the BLT sandwich with a side of fries and he ordered baby back ribs with bbq beans. OMG, while heading up to San Francisco, he fed me a few pieces... More

Very disappointing. We had a difficult time interpreting the menu. Do the entrees come with one or two sides? Garlic bread or corn bread as stated on the menu. We were not given a choice. The corn bread had a rock hard lump in the center. The hot wings were very dry (no sauce) and tasteless. The coleslaw had that... More

We have been visiting Ribs USA for 20 years and all barbecue we have anywhere in the world is rated against RIBS Usa for our family. It is the place where Bob Hope went to get his ribs and when Jay Leno had the late show in Burbank they catered his show. Jay still goes there occasionally for his Ribs.... More

This is a place you should not miss if you are in the Burbank/Toluca Lake area. The food is delicious and the portions are excellent. Dine or take out, don't miss it.

Enjoyed a quick meal on a recent business trip. Ordered the 1/2 slab of ribs and small cole slaw. Ribs were good and cooked correctly, not over or under cooked. A bit expensive for a 1/2 slab but tasty meal with friendly server.
