Description: Welcome to KC's Rib Shack Barbecue restaurant. New Hampshire's favorite BBQ for close to two decades. At KC's Rib Shack, serving the world's finest hickory-smoked ribs and BBQ is our passion. Our food and exceptional service are definitely two things we take seriously. No white tablecloths here, you'll sit at butcher paper covered tables under the Christmas lights and pull from a roll of paper towels to wipe our homemade BBQ sauces from your face. Our Southern style Barbeque, Bar-B-Que, Bar-B-Cue, just Q, or however you spell it, is seasoned with our own recipe of different dry rubs and cooked without sauce. Its then cut to order and prepared straight from our smokers which run 24 hours a day...

“Best Ribs in the Northeast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2009

I love ribs and I seek out rib joints every wherever I travel. I've probably eaten ribs from over 100 different restaurants from around the country. Ten years ago I had to travel to Maryland to get good ribs as you couldn't find a decent rib joint anywhere in NH. Now we have two; KC's and Goody Coles. I think KC's is the hands down best. Once you've enjoyed their succulent ribs, you won't be able to eat the "BBQ" ribs from the chain restaurants. I regularly introduce friends, family and clients to the KC's and they all love it. If you love ribs, you'll love it, too.
