Like the atmosphere, portions are large, but food not as "authentic" as you'd find in the south. Little bland, but would go again.

Whenever I come back to New Hampshire I have to pop in for my meat feast. Not the cheapest place but it's a brilliant experience. You need to check out when they have live music.

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.
