Mmm Mmm...Love this Place!

I love to visit relatives in Granbury so I have an excuse to eat at the Rib Shack. The ribs have been consistantly good, can't vouch for other items as I do not stray from the rib plate when I visit. The service, desserts, and piggles are great too!

The day before Thanksgiving, when I picked up the smoked turkey and giblet gravy I'd ordered, I was surprised how small the turkey was. It came with a quart of giblet gravy, and I bought an extra quart. And I was surprised that there wasn't even one little piece of giblets in either quart container of gravy. So, we went... More

We stumbled on this place when my wife and I were visiting our son and daughter in law. Stopped by to grab a bite of good ol' BBQ. We were NOT dissappointed. The ribs and brisket were quite good and we loved the atmosphere of the place - a bit rustic and 'old timey'. Great place for BBQ and a... More

I love finding little hidden jewels in the community and this one is in Granbury. Small comfortable friendly. Their ribs are heavenly!! And the homemade sweet hot pickles are so yummy!! They also cater. This is one of our favorite restaurants in town and always a hit when we bring guests.

Too cheap to give you styrofoam! $30 order tossed on paper french fry trays in a paper bag--greasy when they brought it out from the kitchen. Digital scale at home-- both brisket and ribs weighed well under a pound. The ribs were meatless with half the order bring big bones and nothing else. Bottom line? Take your money to a... More

One of the best bbq places in Hood County. Ribs are great. Rib Shack is also good for catering for a large group. Highly recommend.

If you are in search for the best ribs in Texas then you just found it. They are so moist and full of flavor they will melt in your mouth. Just a little shop with a red airplane on top and your there.
