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.

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
