Adam’s Rib Co. set to transform another Gainesville landmark

Adam’s Rib Co. has officially invaded the other end of 13th street. What once used to be a great place to grab a sandwich, throw down a drink and watch a game, is being transformed into a new addition to the Rib Co brand. The progress from the very first day after closing, which is below, right down to the grand opening will be available exclusively on Adam’s Rib Co and McFall Builders. McFall Builders was chosen for the renovations of the old Joe’s Deli for their superior construction methods, integrity and over thirty years of experience in Gainesville.

Below you will find a few pictures from the first day after signing. The new space will accommodate nearly double the occupants that the NW 13th st. location does. To find out more about the ongoing project check back weekly. There will be ongoing updates on both the Ribco website as well as the McFall website.

Adam’s RibCo Perfect Ribs Featured in Alligator Newspaper

Below you will find an excerpt from the Alligator newspaper. Our restaurant and owner were featured recently and the article in its entirety can be viewed by following the link below. Adam Brewer is the Owner/Operator.

“Adam Brewer, 31, is the owner and founder of Adam’s Rib Co., 2111 NW 13th St. It opened in fall 2005 and quickly became one of Gainesville’s favorite restaurants. It serves southern comfort foods such as homemade barbecue, collard greens, peach cobbler and biscuits and gravy.”


Gainesville’s best ribs

Gainesville’s best ribs are the foundation for success at Adam’s Rib Co.  If you can’t tell from the name, we take our ribs seriously.  Our slogan is Puttin’ The Rib Back in BBQ and we feel that this is an area that most BBQ restaurants have put on the back of the pit.  While there are many different hypothesis in the industry as to why this may be such as price, toughness and sloppiness.

It is true that rib meat pound for pound is less than a chopped, pulled, or sliced pork, chicken or beef, it is no excuse to neglect what is widely considered to be the best meat on the animal.  All of our ribs are slowed cooked to perfection over some of the best seasoned wood that I inspect for quality each time.  Everyone knows that cooking ribs over a slow low heat is the best method to maintain all of the juices, and natural flavor.  When the meat gets cooked low and slow it slowly breaks down the connective tissue that normally causes rib meat to be tough.  We pull our ribs out at their peak timing when all of the connective tissue is broken down but prior to the juices beginning to dry up.  The choice wood that gets used for the bed of coals is what adds that distinctive flavor of Gainesville Florida’s best ribs. This is why we decided it was our duty to put the Rib Back in BBQ.

Everything at Adam’s is so flavorful and rich. It may make you feel a little fat afterward, but the feeling is absolutely worth it!! My favorite sides have been the seasoned fries and the mac and cheese! The pulled pork sandwich is amazing and I would recommend any of the bbq sauces!
