If you’ve been missing smoked, grilled barbeque in Antioch, then you’re in luck. The Rib Shack, opened by Ron and Mandisa Mixon on September 1st, serves up just what you’ve been craving.
“We started the restaurant because there wasn’t many barbeque places in the area,” Mandisa said.
No one else was providing smoked, grilled barbeque, so they did.
“We were originally going to open a hot dog cart,” she shared. “But when Ron found this location, we decided to open a full restaurant.”
Mandisa is the chef. While they’ve never owned a restaurant before, she gained some experience helping her sister, who owns a restaurant and catering business in Foster City.
But, she learned her cooking skills from her grandmother, who is a native of Mississippi.
“We have a long line of entrepreneurs in our family,” Mandisa stated.
She makes the barbeque sauce and the batter for the fish.
Ron, who also owns a handyman business and has been pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship for the past four years since they moved to Antioch, handles the barbequing.
It’s a family business, with both their daughters serving customers and helping out, and Ron’s brother supplying the home-made sweet potato pie.
They serve ribs, chicken, links and fish, plus desserts. I’ve eaten there and found their barbeque sauce to be delicious.
The Mixons encourage everyone to “Come by and enjoy great barbeque!”
They’re located at 1803 West 10th Street near the corner of Auto Center Drive, next to economy Auto Body and Paint, and across from Hazel’s. They offer dine-in, take-out, catering and lunch-time delivery for three orders or more.

If you haven’t yet been to the new Kobe Japanese Steak, Seafood, Sushi, Teppanyaki, Fusion restaurant and bar in Antioch, you should.
Named for the finest beef in the world, Kobe is the only restaurant in the area to offer such tender New York steak and Filet Mignon that just melt in your mouth.
Plus, their other menu items of seafood, sushi and chicken will tantalize your taste buds, as well.
What’s more is you can enjoy a show of the preparation of your meal at one of their 12 teppanyaki tables.
Started by four friends who met while all working at the same restaurant, Antioch’s location is Kobe’s fourth, with plans for more.
Partners Benny Chen, Phillip Chau, David Dong and Chef Peter Pan (yes that’s really his name), know what they’re doing from their experience in the restaurant business for between 15 and 30 years, each.
“Offering a fine dining experience with five-star food and five-star quality is our goal,” Benny stated.
Lunches include Hibachi Platters, Special Sushi Combos and Bento Boxes. Dinners include Hibachi Entrees and Special “Kobe” Imperial meals, such as steak and lobster or shrimp, and dinner for two with a choice of three items.
They also feature a sushi bar that seats 17 and offer “fusion” choices of Japanese, Korean, Thai and Chinese food, as well as a Kids Menu for age 10 and under.
