On par with Sonny's BBQ

This is a mediocre BBQ joint inside a strip-mall- a few tables, but, (seemed) mainly a take out place. Ribs were done OK- chicken seemed "boiled first" THEN smoked- (?). Sides were OK- BBQ beans were sub-par. Overall, (maybe) slightly better than a Sonny's BBQ, (on a bad night). However, it is... read more

We really enjoyed the Rib Shack on a family trip to Navarre. It's not upscale by any means, just good local soul food option with really good service.

The food was very good. Experienced the pork and also the ribs. You received helpings that were more then enough. One thing thay stuck out to us was the service. Both my husband and I said it has been a long time since we received such AMAZING service and who would have thought at a rib joint. There were 3... More

The food was very impressive. I especially enjoyed the ribs and sausage. We ordered a couple of the family packs and it was more than enough food to go around.

We go here at least once a week for the pulled pork sandwiches and tater tots. The food is amazing, the prices are great, and the staff is so friendly! We love this place. :)

Friendly staff and quick service add to the tasty ribs. Priced like most BBQ ...more than a burger. Expect to pay $15 per person.

Love Rib Shack!! They have the best BBQ in Navarre and each meal comes with more than enough food! Great service too. This is a regular dinner for my family at least every couple of weeks.

You won't find any better BBQ anywhere. I have known the owner since this restaurant opened. It is small in stature, but large in flavor. The banana pudding is exceptional. Get a quart of meat to go and take it back to your room or condo. There are other BBQ restaurants in the area with better view and ambiance, but... More

Everybody knows the first rule of barbecue is that smoke must be involved. There is absolutely no smoke involved in the preparation of the meats at the Rib Shack. It is simply not BBQ. I guess you would call it baked pork or something.
