Best barbecue in Granbury

It's off the beaten path but The Rib Shack has the best barbecue in Granbury and the area. Lots on the menu but I always go for the ribs. Worth a trip to Granbury or across town for great-tasting barbecue.

We went here for the ribs but they were sold out at 7:30. The brisket was okay but nothing special. I guess if you want ribs you need to get there earlier.

Fun unusual place. Ribs were great and the hot and sweet pickles were tasty. I loved the potato salad. Very neat place that is different atmosphere. The cobblers were the bomb. Will go back next time we are in Granbury

Our first visit to the Rib Shack was a couple of months ago. My husband got the ribs, and I had the chopped beef sandwich. It was AMAZING! The ribs were so good, the meat fell of the bone. We have been back about once a week since then. I have tried several things there and have never been disappointed.... More

Just had a rib dinner at rib shack. I haven't been there for a while. The ribs are great. The meat just falls off the bones. Best ribs ever. Price is not extreme for the quality of the meal. Highly recommend you try it.

I've lived at Acton for many years, and I've eaten at the Rib Shack lots and lots of times. I wrote a good review for them a few months ago. But when I got home with my to-go order of a sliced brisket plate tonight, I was very disappointed to see how much fat was on the meat. I'd go... More

I'm new to Granbury and visited Rib Shack based on Trip Advisor Reviews. It's better than I imagined. Amazing, fall of the bone, ribs that are the best I have ever eaten. I'll be back...often!

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
