Good food, bad service

I LOVE the pulled pork and cheese eggrolls and have recommended them to several co workers and friends. However they can't decide on what hours to close so good luck trying to catch them open or get them to answer the phone. Have never been able to dine in as they are always "closing for the night... read more

I'm from the South and have had my fair share of great BBQ. However, the pulled pork at the Rib Shak is some of the best I've ever eaten. I also really enjoyed the BBQ egg roll. Delicious pulled pork with melted cheese inside a fried pastry...need I say more? I don't write many reviews, but I find myself using... More

Delicious BBQ right across from the beach. Very rustic interior and informal which is the way I like it. We have been to this place 3x now while on 2 vacations to the area. A must stop for my family. Must try the BBQ Eggroll (no egg but plenty of BBQ and Cheese, oh so good!)

Wife had the small plate of ribs and they were ok but not what was advertised as fall off the bone tender. I had the smoked chicken and thank goodness for the great BBQ sauce because the chicken was very very dry. Only one other table with people at it and it was 7:00 pm when it shoul have been... More

We saw the reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to try it. The BBQ eggroll was delicious!! I almost didn't try it, but I am so glad I did. My husband had the small rack of ribs that were full of meat. I had the pulled pork sandwich that seemed small when they put it on the table, but it was... More

This is a neat little shack, clean and comfortable on the inside. I could have made a meal on the egg rolls alone - pulled pork, barbecue sauce & cheese - a must try! Everyone enjoyed their meal. The ribs were good, the pulled pork was good also. I prefer sweeter baked beans made with lots of brown sugar -... More

This place helped me out of a bind of feeding 40 people. Our first place cancelled our reservation last minute and The Rib Shak took us in with open arms. Lots of kids and different meal tickets. The staff was fast and very nice. The ribs were very good and I am picky about BBQ being from Texas. Prices were... More

This was, by far, the best food we had on our beach trip. Know that it truly is a shack, so don’t expect more from the structure. Be prepared, however, for amazing BBQ, delicious handmade onion rings, and authentic southern sweet tea.
