Great bbq and ribs

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.

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

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.

Great BBQ! Great atmosphere. A little off the path from most Granbury eateries, but far away, and worth finding it. Ribs were tender and meaty. Definitely get the sweet & hot 'piggles'!

We eat here quite often, as we live in the area. It's always good to know where the locals eat. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly. You get pretty generous helpings and you won't leave hungry.

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.
