We live quite a distance from this place so we haven't been there in a long long time- our mistake! They have reminded us why they are worth the drive-fantastic, lean, tender, succulent ribs with just the right amount of smoke. (too much smoke gives me indigestion). We picked up a couple of pounds and inhaled them in no time... More

They have good brisket, but their ribs is what sets them apart from the other places at Granbury. The only problem is that the price is more than other places. And the times they are open are so limited that you can't really tell if they are open or not when you drive by. So I usually just drive on... More

Do not miss this place if you are in or around Granbury Texas. This is far and away the best BBQ in Granbury. Ribs are always done to perfection.... Go, Eat, Enjoy... Oh and by the way don't forget the different homemade cobblers, they are to die for....

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

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.
