bad service

10/23,08
about 2 months ago i called in an order at this I-57 and waited for two hrs. today is the first time since than, that went to this place, i called in my order at 12:35p, they told me 15 to 20 min, at 1:06p, i went to get my order, it was not ready. but wanted me to pay now, they have a sign that says (no refune) in big letters. I told them that when my order is ready i will pay, they did not want to here that. this place does not care about the people it only about them. if you order from this place be propared to wait. this I-57 is in riverdale, il.

HORRIBLE SERVICE

Went to I-57 for the LAST TIME.The ribs tips are good but as of lately ,they are very inconsistent. Sometimes tender sometimes tough. This time whole bucket was tough as leather. I know people make mistakes ,but when I called in to complain,I waited leki 2 minutes for someone to answer the phone and was immediately placed on HOLD,THEN I asked the name of the person I was speaking with and instead of giving her name she asked MY name.So now i’m getting FURIOUS,I asked to speak to a mgr. was again on hold for like 5 minutes, same person got on the phone and said mgr was “BUSY”, asked for the MGRS name and was again put on hold..5 minutes ,the COOK got on the phone and asked what was the problem. I told him about the ribs,he offered me a “CREDIT” and to return the uneaten ribs. They are ALWAYS SLOW and you dont know WHAT your gonna get.

Rib Tips

were TOUGH as LEATHER

Service

Ribs are delicious but service is poor. While taking orders over the phone, the Phone Clerk needs to be more courteous and professional over the phone and in person.

I 57 Rib House

I’ve had the pleasure of eating at 3 of the 1 57 Rib chains. I think the one that was on 115th & Ashland had the best food but it burned down. The one on 99th & Halsted, the tips were alittle chewy. Yesterday 3/25, I went to the one in Riverdale. I phoned in my order. They told me 30 minutes. When I got there it was crowded as usual but my order was ready. The tips were very meaty, very tender and delicious and the links were perfect just like the ones on Ashland. I think they may have a new chef but somebody finally know what they are doing. Bravo! I will be back. By the way, all of the sauces taste exactly the same, great.

Ribs

They really have the best ribs in town but be prepared to wait if you don’t phone in your order.

Rib Tips

Tender and meaty. The sauce is delicious, sweet and smokey.

Hotlinks

Done and delicious if you like a little hot.
