Being from St. Louis, we have a pretty good idea of what constitutes great BBQ. I won't go so far as to say this place ranks up there with the best of STL but for the area it was very good. Nothing much to look at, it's a small place in a strip mall, but those are usually the hidden... More

We came here last year in 2013. We were looking for something for lunch and glad we stopped here. Best BBQ we have had in a long time and were from Texas!

As a vacationer we gave this a try. We chose take out after reading a few reviews about the inside of the restaurant. The inside was fine, nothing fancy and the same busy person taking care of tables and the take-out counter. He was busy but handling it well if you have just a little patience. We got a 1/2... More

You really must give this place a try! The outside makes one kind of wonder, being in a little strip mall, but the inside is really not too bad. It is clean and pleasant. We all tried different food and everything was so good. I mean really, really good food! The prices are pretty decent too. Our favorites were the... More

So - what was good here ? - pulled pork was excellent, St. Louis ribs were probably the best (fall off the bone) I have had..... WORD OF CAUTION -... More

Had lunch there on 2/10/14, and the food was great. Had the beef brisket plate with two sides, creamy cole slaw and tater tots. There are about 10 sides that you can select from. The other part had the brisket, pulled pork and rib plate with two sides. The meat was tender and the sauces excellent. The service was excellent.... More

Great family owned restaurant, awesome food! The fried pickles are something you'll order every time! Fall of the bone ribs and that sweet barbeque sauce its me over the edge every time.

I recently tried the pulled pork. The Rib Shack offers 2 sauces: one sweet and one spicy, but both are vinegar based and very thin in consistency. When you entered the restaurant you could smell a little smoke and the meat was very lightly smoked. The sweet potato fries were served with a brown sugar dipping sauce, and I requested... More

We found the Rib Shack while looking for somewhere to have supper, because we were traveling with animals, we had to do take out. The service was not great, as my husband asked for baked potato and was told they only had cold ones?! No other explanation was given.The chicken was dry and the ribs were just ok. Not a... More

We found this place after several months of trying to find good BBQ in Navarre! They are always friendly and the food had never been less then outstanding! We eat there at least several times a month! Great little family hole in the wall! They have amazing ribs! Meat just melts in your mouth!
