Best BBQ EVER! and don't forget the Pickles!

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... read 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

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.
