A little background on Sam and his delicious ribs

Sam started as a waiter in many local restaurants around Orange County, he then became an assistant manager and continued working his way up in the restaurant industry. In 1980, Sam and a business partner went in together buying the now famous Ribjoint. The quality of food surpasses that of any local restaurant.
