Great food for great prices. Highly recommend the shovel for family of 5-6 people. Great Onion rings for appetizer. Took family visiting for the weekend. Well worth the drive.

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.
