This place is definitely about the meat. If you do not like ribs, brisket etc then look elsewhere. The environment is very friendly and relaxed, simple but stylish. The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I have been there twice...More

The K in KC's stands for Kevin, and he and his crew really know how to do do it up right. The ribs are juicy, tender and fall off the bone, complimented by awesome sides, including the best cornbread ever. There is an extensive selection...More

Stopped by here on Father's with my family going through Manchester. The food was very good. Service was great. Was able to get in and get our food rather quickly. Was a beautiful day and we were able to sit outside. Great Atmosphere.

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 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.
