We love the Rib Shack but please call ahead to be sure someone will be there! We can't keep up with their odd hours. Food is great! Pickles are incredible! We buy them by the quart to bring home!

Rib Shack is a good BBQ place with daily specials. I have had fast, friendly service the couple of times I've gone. Like most BBQ places, the food isn't cheap.

Just took several people to the Rib Shack for lunch, the service was fast and the food was excellent. Felt like it was a good value as well, no problem recommending them.

I love to visit relatives in Granbury so I have an excuse to eat at the Rib Shack. The ribs have been consistantly good, can't vouch for other items as I do not stray from the rib plate when I visit. The service, desserts, and piggles are great too!

The day before Thanksgiving, when I picked up the smoked turkey and giblet gravy I'd ordered, I was surprised how small the turkey was. It came with a quart of giblet gravy, and I bought an extra quart. And I was surprised that there wasn't even one little piece of giblets in either quart container of gravy. So, we went... More

We stumbled on this place when my wife and I were visiting our son and daughter in law. Stopped by to grab a bite of good ol' BBQ. We were NOT dissappointed.

I love finding little hidden jewels in the community and this one is in Granbury. Small comfortable friendly. Their ribs are heavenly!! And the homemade sweet hot pickles are so yummy!! They also cater. This is one of our favorite restaurants in town and always a hit when we bring guests.
