We started out with the pulled pork egg rolls. SOOOO GOOD! Dip it in the spicy BBQ sauce. My husband and my daughter and her BFF had the pulled pork sandwiches and I had the ribs. All were excellent! My family owns a BBQ place and I have to say, this place is the best BBQ we've ever had. My... More

We wanted something other than seafood for a change while on vacation in Perdido Key. We chose to come to The Rib Shak and were not disappointed. The food was good and reasonably priced. The waitress was super sweet too. This was our third trip to Perdido Key and we have never thought to stop here before. We will definitely... More

While we were visting Orange Beach we had dinner here at the Rib Shack. The ribs tasted great! We all enjoyed our meals and were plenty full when we left. We also got to meet the owners of the Rib Shack, they were both very nice. The staff at the restaurant were also very nice. Overall good experience, try it... More

Don't normally eat my ribs dry but OMG they were so tender & delicious I didn't even add sauce! Whole family loved the ribs and wife and I got plates to go later in week! Little Rack & the two sides should be enough for anyone except biggest eaters. Beans were the best side, fries & potato salad were both... More

This place has good BBQ. I love getting the BBQ egg rolls. They are delicious! This is a good place to stop in at after a day at the beach. The staff is very friendly.

Hailing from LA and spending a lot of time in Texas (ie - Luling City Market and Kreuz BBQ), we have high expectations of BBQ. We ordered to-go and were pleasantly surprised with the taste and texture of the BBQ. We had the ribs which had a nice smoke ring and were nicely falling off the bone. Yummy overall with... More

We stopped in on our way back to Orange Beach last Friday after a long drive of shopping. The ribs were great and hubby enjoyed his pork sandwich. Must try the eggrolls...yummy. Only issue we had was our waitress...the .tall brunette was more interested in playing on her phone so the other two waitresses had to pick up her slack.

The Rib Shak comes off as a tiny little local feel place. There is a little porch for outdoor seating. The inside is very basic. The eating ware is designed for carry away (styrofoam) etc. My wife and I both had ribs. My sides were fried pickles and the baked beans. The baked beans might be some of the best... More

We have been to the Rib Shak several times and have never been disappointed. Tonight we had the full rack of ribs and 1/2 smoked chicken. Both were excellent. Potato salad tasted homemade as well as the beans. Texas toast a plus. Will go again and again.

Had pulled pork and was excellent! The ribs... such a subjective taste.. some in our group judge ribs by the "fall off the bone" standard and they really liked these... for some these ribs were too mushy...
