Let’s start with the basics. Parking - luckily the place next door had parking so parking can be an issue. Seating - it was early afternoon so I figured it would not be that busy. WRONG - the place was busy and full. Seating therefore...More

We have been here several times and each time something is average.We did not care for the ribs the last time we were here, but liked them when we visited about a year ago. It wasn't the sauce because they bring a variety of them...More

Went here twice and they have delicious ribs. First time (Nov. 2016) I was driving by and starving so we went in to eat. The second time (Jan. 2017) my husband suggested to his employer to have the company Christmas party here. Everyone enjoyed it...More

Love KCs. The cordon blue sandwich is so good and the Brunswick stew I love! Of course the ribs are good and we always get the fried pickles spears! The big bubba beer always cold and delicious!

Huge portions, but service is pretty poor. Food is ok, not great. But either way, you better come hungry. Most entree's can easily be shared. Just wish they would work on the service.

Love coupons! Great and friendly service. Love the pulled pork and Caesar salad and pitmaster (all diff BBQ items). Collard greens are just the way I like 'em. Not many BBQ places in NH, but I still think this ranks up there.

Welcome to KC's Rib Shack Barbecue restaurant. New Hampshire's favorite BBQ for close to two decades. At KC's Rib Shack, serving the world's finest hickory-smoked ribs and BBQ is our passion. Our food and exceptional service are definitely two things we take seriously. No white tablecloths here, you'll sit at butcher paper covered tables under the Christmas lights and pull from a roll of paper towels to wipe our homemade BBQ sauces from your face. Our Southern style Barbeque, Bar-B-Que, Bar-B-Cue, just Q, or however you spell it, is seasoned with our own recipe of different dry rubs and cooked without sauce. Its then cut to order and prepared straight from our smokers which run 24 hours a day...
