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.

This is small quaint place but the food is worth the stop. The service is good and personable. Give it a try.

We ordered two racks of ribs with dry rub they were delicious! Fed 6 people for less than $50 - it was a to go order. Couldn't beat the value and the taste was close to the Award Winning Mean Pig in Cabot, AR! I do love good Barbecue!

The gumbo was just the right amount of spice, I highly recommend it. We had the meat platter with pork, chicken, ribs, brisket with baked beans, potato salad and fried okra. It was all well seasoned and flavorful. Our server was very personable and friendly, even though he was busy. We would definitely go back the next time we are... More

Although East river has a better view the BBQ here is a lot better. I didn't find this place till after living in navarre for a year, it is tucked away in a stripmall just east of Walmart and doesn't have a huge sign. Owner is super friendly and makes great BBQ. Highly recommend to go check it out for... More

Ok I'm local, they got the best ribs around. Memphis Style dry. Go there at least once a week. We get their ribs all the time for family outings.

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
