Without a doubt, the BBQ at the Rib Shack is the best in the Granbury area. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out. I'm sure If they had opened it up in a bigger building at the busiest part of hwy. 377 at Granbury, they would have sold lots more BBQ. But I believe the owners didn't want that.... More

Brisket was tender and good flavor, ribs actually fell off the bones. All was good but portions were small. Home make pickles were so good that I purchased a jar to go, sweet and hot.

I had been told about this place months ago but just didn't get around to going by and trying their BBQ. Well.....I should have gone there long ago. The pulled pork sandwich was deeelicious!!!! My wife had the baked potato with pulled pork and it was more than a meal. Portions were generous, food was delicious and the service was... More

I like the sliced brisket at the Rib Shack, now that I discovered that I can ask for mild BBQ sauce that isn't as hot with pepper as their regular sauce. I've heard several people say they don't go there because the BBQ sauce is so hot, and I always told them to order their food with the mild sauce... More

The place does look like a shack and was easy to find! We could smell the delicious BBQ from the parking lot. We went on a Friday at lunch time and it was busy, but not too crowded. The decor is very cute and I liked the ole time fireplace. The food was quite tasty....I had the chopped beef plate... More

We only had rib plates so can't comment on other meats. We couldn't keep the meat on the bones! Compared to some ribs, they might be a bit dry, but I think it's because you add your own sauce. I loved, loved, loved them. Good price too at $8.95 for 1/2 pound and 2 sides. Potato salad good, but other... More

I used to live in Stephenville, and I am a big fan of Hard 8 BBQ. This BBQ is better. It's a little bit slow, and the tables are crowded, but the food is great.

Shack-y place with better than average BBQ. The ribs are quite good. Sides are average unfortunately.

Down on the farm looking tin shack with amazing smells coming out of it! Great ambiance runed by tables full of trays and used plates, glasses and silverware. Had the largest rib plate, (about 3/4 of a rack of baby backs) at a very reasonable price ($12). Found the rib meat well smoked, and tasty but too dry, all the... More
