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.

The environment is welcoming and historical. I was under estimating the food however blown away at the flavors. I really enjoyed the pulled pork and will definitely come back.

I wasn't too sure about this place when I first walked in, but it came highly recommended and so we decided to try it out. The food was good, but it didn't meet expectations. It came out within about 5-7 minutes. Also, the cheese fries...More

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...
