about us

What We Do

The Tender Rib was founded in 1999 by Wendell and Cynthia Wallace.

Independent sales of our food to only a hand full of clients led to an overwhelming demand for catering, that we decided to become a company offering great food to great people.
Today, THE TENDER RIB, has served more than 500,000 clients and we have expanded into a multi-functional company offering exhibitor and food vendor services, as well as catering and a carry-out facility.

This rib joint is awesome. There rib tips are tender and are perfectly sauced - You can't go wrong!

It's yummy! I ordered the fish dinner with macaroni and cheese and collard greens. Hit the spot!!! I did a phone order and it was ready in 10 minutes. Very satisfying

The food is delicious. Everything I've tried so far (ribs, chicken wings, fish, mac n' cheese & collard greens) has been delicious and priced right for the generous portion sizes.
