the menu is simple but complete....the food is always really tasty and hot. The ribs are amazing....tender and packed with flavor...i personally love the barbecued chicken because even though i ask for it well-done to crisp up and blacken the skin a bit, the meat is still moist. they have the best french fries around..try dipping them in brown gravy..awesome! believe me, you can't go wrong having an entire meal including fresh salad and ending with a slice of yummy cake or even the cornbread..the price is right-on fair...enjoy!

Pros: food is freshly made to order

Cons: it's only for take-out and delivery

It's easy to overlook this joint among the many fast food exteriors that litter the landscape, but these folks really do value quality eats. The two main meats come in a variety of styles, and I recommend you try them all, but I always judge a joint first on it's standard fried chicken and standard BBQ pork rib versions.

I believe in the skill and pride of workmanship of the individual, and the Bergenfield NJ location is small enough that it's possible that the head chef is most likely also the owner so having a stake in place makes all the difference in the world. Besides the standard BBQ style in chicken and pork or beef Ribs, they have a Teriyaki version and a specialty style called "24 Carat Gold" that has a mustard blend to excite the palate. It's okay to laugh at the use of the word "palate", but hear me out: We all know one can get a hamburger just about anywhere, but we all have our Pavlov responses to certain specialty joints. Places like Bobby Flays and Five Guys stand apart among loyalists, and Chicken and Rib Crib deserves such a following.

If you are the type that would shove anything in your mouth, this review might be falling on deaf eyes. For instance, there is a Pizza Hut franchise next door to this Bergenfield location. No doubt the Hut does quite well as a corporation, as does Dominos. But I count myself among those that feel "real pizza" is the select family joints that many times actually have lineage back to "the old country". The crust, the sauce, the toppings... if you value good pizza, you know what I mean. But sometimes you can get lazy. The national pizza chains have the seductive TV commercials and "two fer" deals. We consumers are a strange bunch. The Chicken and Rib Crib has a diverse menu, but the chicken and the ribs are definitely the headliners, and definitely worth any delivery wait.
