Best BBQ I have ever had. I thought Nashville had great BBQ, well you got number 1 with me! We have to drive about an hour to get there, but it is now our place to celebrate birthdays.

We hadn't had ribs in a long time - we asked around and this was recommended to us! First, when we got there at the reception area the sign says wait to be seated, we waited and waited - no one came! We finally went...More

all food was great and they make a perfect sangria. Do not go there if you are looking for cheap eats, but you get reasonable value and excellent food.

Food was over cooked. They were so busy would watch the waitresses zoom by thing to keep up. So by the time food came was not good at all

This was a special occasion visit, the guest of honor's selection. Since we are Southerners and BBQ snobs, we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered the "big shovel", what fun! Service excellent, atmosphere great, highly recommended.

We tried KC ‘s recently. The place is rustic and country, but it needs a cleaning, everything in the front entry just feels ignored. Not a great first impression. We ordered the shovel dinner, $70; it had a nice variety of brisket, pulled pork, chicken,...More

The ribs were pretty good but that was about it. The table was dirty, silverware was dirty, they didn't care when we asked for the table to be washed and silverware replaced. Doesn't give you a good feeling about the kitchen

Always a good meal with the family or for an adult night out. We always stop here on our way north for a weekend of skiing

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...
