Sunday music at KC's Rib Shack is always a great way to end your weekend. Great food, a bucket of beers, what more could you want.

The ribs were absolutely mouth watering, melt in your mouth. The pulled pork was fabulous. Didn't have room for the extras, but can't wait to go back to try them and other menu items.

I ate lunch at the bar. I got the Bacon Deviled Eggs (tremendous) for my appetizer and beef brisket, Brunswick stew, Cole slaw, and cornbread for my main. The brisket was truly the best I've had, and I'm a huge meat eater. The slices were good but the fatty, juicy, crusty tips layered under the slices were to die for.... More

I had a brisket sandwich and a giant 34 ounce beer. Wasn't the best brisket sandwich I've had but wasn't the worst. I'd give it a decent. The side of Mac salad was very good. Lots of comical decor in the bar. It was a Tue evening so it was a bit slow. Service was prompt and friendly. Although the... More

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...
